SealedMedia Enters Corporate Enterprise Market

Feb 11, 2003

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 have been improved to include important 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 multi-threaded server, which stores and serves the end-user rights that the company's Unsealer product uses to grant or deny access to sealed documents. 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 License Server now provides support for Documentum's enterprise content management (ECM) platform. SealedMedia has integrated its content sealing solution with Documentum's ECM platform using a new integration framework specifically designed to enable document sealing vendors to extend control over sensitive enterprise documents out from the ECM repository to the end user desktop. 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. With this announcement, 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.
