NextLabs’ Export Compliance Applications
NextLabs’ solution is a set of applications, which include a comprehensive set of best practice policy libraries and reports required to support compliance with export regulations such as ITAR and EAR. Policy sets can be easily customized to the environment or used as templates to create new policies.
The solution allows companies to control and audit Deemed Export of Technical Data by applying policy across the servers, applications, and workstations where technical data is managed and stored. Export Control for Technical Data safeguards information within the enterprise ensures proper handling of technical data export to satisfy regulatory requirements.
The solution addresses technical data export requirements by enabling project teams to:
- Control access to technical data based on user citizenship, certification training, computer system, and physical location.
- Track and apply policy-based controls to control duplication, storage, copy/paste, printing, removable media, e-mail, IM, Web uploads, FTP, and web conferencing.
- Prevent leakage of technical data beyond certified systems and users.
- Automatically match technical data export to Export Licenses or Technical Assistance Agreements (TAA).
- Apply policy universally across data repositories and endpoints including file servers, document management, PDM/PLM applications.
- Create Information Barriers around projects, applications, and systems to prevent leakage of export-controlled technical data into uncertified systems or applications.
- Detect user activity that constitutes Deemed Export and automate the process of export license determination and/or manager approval.
- Provide a full audit trail detailing technical data access and usage to satisfy regulatory compliance audit requirements.
- Leverage best-practice policies and reports for easy and rapid deployment.
The solution actively enforces export controls by understanding the complex, business context for appropriate technical data handling and disclosure. Collaboration inside and outside the enterprise, including supply chain partners and a mobile workforce, can now be governed to demonstrate compliance with export regulations such as ITAR and EAR.
