As companies get more social, it’s mandatory that you need control over access to sensitive documents. In the past, we have seen several companies data being disclosed without knowledge (like Twitter’s entire business plan/future plan etc).
Incubated at IIT Bombay, Seclore provides security products in the area of Information Rights Management (IRM), which enables companies to control all aspects of documents. Seclore InfoSource allows enterprises to define and implement “usage rules” for such data and the usage rules are applied to data even after it travels to the vendor location.
Seclore FileSecure allows for owners of documents and emails to control usage before and after the documents/emails have been circulated. This means that information shared with internal and external parties can be “remote controlled”.
Information can be controlled for
- WHO (people, groups) has access to it,
- WHAT (view, edit, print, forward) can each person do with the documents ,
- WHEN (dates, time spans) he/she can use information and
- WHERE (in the office, at home) can they use it.
A complete audit trail of the document flow and its usage is maintained centrally in line with the recommendations of ISO 27001, PCI or SOX. It is also possible to, at the end of the process to revoke the usage rights to the document so that the document can thereafter no longer be opened by the receiving party. Documents can also be programmed for self destruction based on time!
Seclore’s clients include ICICI, HDFC, Kotak, Reliance, L&T, Thyssenkrupp, Bajaj Allianz, Panasonic, HCC, Asian Paints, Titan, Fugro etc and they have already launched document management connectors that work with popular clients like Microsoft SharePoint , Newgen OmniDocs and IBM FileNet.
