Securing Intellectual Property Wherever it Travels
The manufacturing industry thrives on cross-enterprise (and even cross-country) collaboration with third-party contractors, vendors, and other partners in the value chain. As employees send drawings and designs, blueprints, technical manuals, proposals, prices lists and other sensitive documents – much of it highly confidential – your ability to obtain control of the data is very limited. Learn how to keep your intellectual property protected throughout the collaboration process.
