Open Text recently announced new additions to its ECM suite that allow users to ensure that sensitive and copyrighted materials are protected from unauthorized viewers, even after the programs are removed from the company computer. With the rise of malware in recent months and the ease with which cyber criminals compromise enterprise networks, protecting sensitive information is crucial.
Even though most companies operate on secure networks and take advantage of security precautions that prevent certain people from viewing documents, it”s easy for these files to land in unprotected folders or servers after several people open their document viewer. Open Text”s ECM rights management services control every aspect of a document”s viewing – from who views to when and how.
"With the speed that information travels, it”s all too easy for sensitive documents to get forwarded or downloaded to a USB drive and land in the wrong hands," Lubor Ptacek, vice president of product marketing at Open Text, said. "Permissions-based security in an enterprise repository alone is not sufficient."
New additions will only add to the success of the Ottawa, Ontario-based company that recently received a grant of $225 million from the Canadian government, according to TMCNet.
