Liquid Machines, Inc., a provider of enterprise rights management (ERM) solutions, has announced the Beta release of Liquid Machines Document Control 5.0 for Microsoft Windows Rights Management Services (RMS) for Windows Server 2003.
Liquid Machines Document Control v5.0 is designed to extend RMS policy enforcement to desktop and enterprise applications including Adobe Acrobat and Microsoft Visio. Additionally, Liquid Machines Document Control 5.0 will allow customers to make optimal use of existing Microsoft investments and use Microsoft Office 2000 and Office XP to view and modify RMS-protected documents created in Office 2003. Liquid Machines Document Control 5.0 for RMS provides users with persistent protection of electronic information throughout the collaborative business process--from creation through distribution, editing, storage, and subsequent destruction and disposal. User actions, such as distilling a rights-protected document to Adobe Acrobat, maintain the RMS policy of the original document on the derived file.
Liquid Machines Document Control for RMS is intended to extend the RMS platform to other business applications. RMS allows users to apply enterprise-defined templates or user-defined policies to information. Policies define privileges for information, such as read, edit, print, and clipboard. Liquid Machines Document Control extends these capabilities through the Liquid Machines Policy Droplet control to Microsoft Visio, Adobe Acrobat, Adobe Reader, Microsoft Office 2000, and Microsoft Office XP. In conjunction with the beta availability of Liquid Machines Document Control 5.0 for RMS, Liquid Machines also announced support for RMS Service Pack 1 (SP1). RMS SP1 will enable integration with 3rd party server-based applications for more comprehensive information protection across the RMS platform.
