Authentica, Inc., a provider of enterprise rights management (ERM) solutions, has extended its Active Rights Management (ARM) platform with support for the newly released Adobe Acrobat 7.0 for Windows. Additionally, Authentica will support Acrobat 5.0 for Sun Solaris and digital certificate authentication with Sun Solaris workstations. This enables U.S. Department of Defense and intelligence agency customers to leverage their existing PKI infrastructure to create and share sensitive data securely on Sun Solaris workstations.
In addition to Adobe Acrobat, Authentica's ARM platform integrates with business critical applications, including Microsoft Office, Microsoft Outlook, Lotus Notes, Microsoft Internet Explorer, and Netscape Web browsers. The flexibility of the ARM platform also allows content owners to enforce information security policies and track access to information right from their desktop applications, or organizations can automate protection and policy enforcement by integrating Authentica within content management systems, email gateways, and portal applications.
The ARM platform is designed to let organizations quickly and easily enforce information security policies and track access to sensitive data. Organizations control who 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 developed to integrate with existing applications and infrastructures to ensure that sensitive information is protected without impacting existing enterprise workflow.
