NextLabs Discusses Data-Centric Security at Siemens PLM Europe 2017

Keng Lim, CEO of NextLabs and Information Security Pioneer to Speak on Latest Trends in Data Protection

San Mateo, CA, USA – September 20, 2017 – NextLabs, a leading provider of data-centric security software to protect business critical data and applications, announced their founder and CEO, Keng Lim, will be presenting at Siemens PLM Europe in Berlin. Mr. Lim, an information security pioneer, will discuss leading security technologies for ensuring intellectual property is protected throughout the manufacturing process. Despite the potential risks, companies need to be able to share sensitive product and manufacturing data globally across multi-level supply chain and partner networks. Product innovation includes some of the most valued information that organizations own and increasing information theft has warranted a stronger data defense.

In Mr. Lim’s presentation, he will be sharing insights he has gained working in the industry and with CAD and PLM customers over the years, including proven best practices that organizations have implemented to safeguard information and maintain the level of security required when sharing information with suppliers and partners. He will discuss new security strategies that provide greater access controls and visibility into data access, usage, anomalies and risk analytics.

Mr. Lim will also discuss how customers are using the most advanced Enterprise Digital Rights Management (EDRM) technologies to secure data from product creation to completion and beyond – including preventing unauthorized access throughout multi-tier supply chains with dynamic authorization, time-out features that prevent contractors and ex-employees from gaining access when they are terminated, and using real time contextual information to make sure all relevant access criteria is considered. EDRM is revolutionizing secure enterprise collaboration by allowing organizations to automatically protect all types of documents and files with the ability to monitor access, track usage, revoke permission, and maintain persistent protection regardless of where the files are located – in motion and at scale.

PLM Europe is an independent User Group which brings together Siemens PLM Software customers, Partners and Siemens PLM Software. The conference takes place in Berlin October 23-25, 2017, and includes sessions covering all aspects of Product Lifecycle Management and Manufacturing Operations Management, both for product oriented user to mid-management and executive level perspective helping plan the journey to the digital enterprise.
