SealedMedia Enters Corporate Enterprise Market

Nov 26, 2002

SealedMedia has entered the corporate enterprise document security market with the latest release of its three core software components--the License Server, Sealer, and Unsealer. These new versions now include enterprise-related features such as support for Documentum's Enterprise Content Management (ECM) platform, expanded end-user functionalities as well as additional language and file format support. All three products are available immediately. The License Server is SealedMedia's server, which stores and serves the end-user rights that the Unsealer uses to grant or deny access to sealed documents: Start Time--enable access after a specified embargo date and time; Stop Time--disable access after a specified expiration date and time; Printing--enable or disable printing of sealed documents; Copying--enable or disable copying and pasting from sealed documents; Saving--enable or disable saving the unprotected versions of sealed documents; Screen Grab--screen grabbing of sealed documents is always disabled; and Work Offline--enable or disable the ability to use sealed documents while offline. As the Unsealer requests these rights from the License Server, the server generates an audit trail of who has accessed which sealed documents, and when and where. The Sealer is SealedMedia's desktop application for document owners, which permits authorized users to define different security contexts for related sets of sensitive documents, to seal documents to belong to these contexts, and to assign users specific roles, and therefore rights, governing their access to documents sealed to these contexts. The Unsealer is SealedMedia's 2MB plug-in. End-users can only access sealed content using the Unsealer, subject to the rights they have been assigned. SealedMedia now provides full support for French and German versions of the Unsealer. Additionally, two new file formats will be supported: Portable Network Graphics (PNG) and MPEG-1. In all, SealedMedia now supports 11 different files formats, including Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, HTML, PDF, JPEG, GIF, MP3, and QuickTime.
