Confidential, personally identifiable information received from customers comes with the liability of revenue and reputation loss in case it gets leaked from within your enterprise.SecloreFileSecure enables you to control information received from customers to specific people andspecific usage, thus increasing accountability of information usage and providing comfort to your customers.
Typically confidential information sent to vendors is governed by non disclosure agreements without a mechanism to enforce or track the agreement. Therefore you are dependent on the vendors' systems and processes for the confidentiality of your critical information. Loss of information from the vendor could lead to reputation and legal risks for your enterprise. SecloreFileSecure enables you to control the usage of information sent to vendors and prevent unauthorized viewing, printing, editing and distributing of the information. Information can also be remotely made unusable in case the relationship ends.
Information and reports sent to one "paid" customer typically lands up with multiple people and enterprises leading to many "unpaid" customers. Revenue leaks thus caused directly affect the bottomline of the company. SecloreFileSecure prevents revenue leakage of documents and reports by restricting unauthorized viewing, copying and distribution, thus driving revenues and preventing piracy.
Temporary relationships with partners and vendors for a specific project typically leads to extensive information sharing during the execution. After the project ends, the information and intellectual property shared continues to be retained and used by the partner, sometimes against the enterprise, leading to financial losses. SecloreFileSecure enables you to "retract" information shared with business partners after a specified period thus protecting intellectual property and driving revenues.
Research data, business plans, forward-looking financial statements and MIS reports are just some examples of information which are best used only within the walls of the enterprise. Malicious intent, errors and omissions and lack of awareness could make this information publicly available leading to potential losses. SecloreFileSecure protects information from leakage due to malicious intent, errors and omissions, as well as lack of awareness, by providing a persistent, information-locked method of protection. This means that confidential information remains confidential post distribution.
While GRC technologies and processes effectively monitor and control access rights within applications and folders, they do not effectively track the flow and usage of unstructured information in the form of documents and emails. Confidential information traverses department and organization boundaries in unstructured forms without effective controls or monitoring of its use. SecloreFileSecure provides comprehensive and detailed audit trails for information usage including the WHO, WHAT, WHEN and WHERE of the usage. This includes authorized activities and unauthorized attempts. Compliance costs can significantly be reduced by using these out-of-the-box reports.
Information and its control typically flow together. The only way of restricting control of information and its use, is to control its flow. Enterprises are faced with the tough challenge of sharing information and inviting the risks of information breaches or not sharing information. This open information sharing often leads to information breaches. Seclore's technology allows digital information and its control to be unique and separate. Information that is sent out can be remote controlled. It can be made to become un-printable, un-editable or self destruct. Remotely. SecloreFileSecure enables enterprises to mitigate the risks of information breaches by allowing people and enterprises to distribute information freely but retain control of the information irrespective of its location or method of transmission.
Files shared can be controlled for access to the documents in various forms.
The traditional approach of information security has taken a very wide focus at protecting enterprise systems, often at the expense of the data and information contained within.
- Gartner, 2009
40% of an average enterprise's sensitive data is estimated to be in unstructured formats, (PDFs, MS Office formats, email, webpages). The biggest challenge with protecting and managing unstructured data is that it has become so important, and so easy to share.
- Aberdeen Group, 2009
Confidential data held by businesses and other organizations has never been more critical or less secure, especially in light of the trend to outsourcing and offshoring. The consequences of data loss - compromised commercial strategies, financial liability, tarnished brand image, violation of government regulations and more - are better understood.
