Authentica Announces Active Rights Management Platform

Feb 18, 2005

Authentica, Inc., a provider of enterprise rights management (ERM) solutions, has introduced its next-generation active rights management (ARM) platform, an integrated ERM solution that is designed to combine document and email protection in a single platform. Authentica's ARM is intended to deliver a range of integration support, extending its benefits to enterprise compliance/archiving, content management, and mobile email applications. Authentica's ARM platform was developed to protect documents and email at rest, in transit, and even after distribution to recipients. Organizations can systematically identify, audit, and continuously control protected content as it flows into and out of an enterprise.

The Authentica ARM platform is intended to provide enterprises and government agencies a single, centralized solution for intellectual property protection (IP) and compliance adherence. It offers: Integrated Document and Email Rights Management--Provides a single platform for safeguarding documents and email; supports a range of desktop applications and formats, including Microsoft Office, Adobe Acrobat, email, and Web content. Enterprise Integration--Enables organizations to integrate ARM protections with a range of enterprise infrastructure and applications, including: Compliance/Archiving--IronPort, ProofPoint and Veritas/KVS; Content Management--Documentum, eRoom, Hummingbird, and Microsoft SharePoint; and Mobile Email--Research in Motion (RIM) for mobile Blackberry devices. Auditing and Reporting--Allows organizations to track and audit user activity throughout content's lifecycle; streamlines reporting and ensures policy compliance and information traceability.

The ARM platform lets organizations enforce information security policies and track access to sensitive data. Organizations control that can view, print, edit, forward, or save content and these permissions can be changed at any time--even the ability to revoke access to information after it's distributed. The ARM platform has been designed to integrate tightly with existing applications and infrastructures to ensure that sensitive information is protected without impacting existing enterprise workflow. Centralized policy and key management allows auditing and control of sensitive information, regardless of where it is distributed. Authentica's Active Rights Management platform is available immediately; pricing begins at $50,000.
