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.

How Seclore Data-Centric Platform Meets NIST Compliance

Many manufacturing companies are determining how to best address the NIST SP 800-171 regulation. Because the manufacturing process requires external collaboration and the sharing of sensitive IP across hundreds of sub-contractors and suppliers, traditional ‘perimeter-centric’ security measures are not enough to achieve NIST compliance.

Find out how Seclore Data-Centric Security Platform can help you protect your IP and address NIST in this white paper.
