Digital Rights Management

Achieving the Balance: Sharing vs. Security

Across industries, companies are required to share and make information available across the extended enterprise. Information can no longer be contained within the network perimeter. Data resides in the cloud, on mobile devices, and with business partners. Users are requiring access to data anytime, anywhere, and on any device.

In today’s global economy, organizations need to collaborate with supply chain partners, contract manufacturers, and many others. In order to work effectively with them, organizations need to share their most sensitive assets externally.

The challenge: How can organizations safeguard information sharing to protect their intellectual property, trade secrets, and other critical data?


Protection Across the Extended Enterprise

NextLabs Enterprise Digital Rights Management (EDRM) is designed to protect data as it moves and is shared across today’s extended enterprise. With NextLabs, any file type can be protected and accessed from any device to ensure secure collaboration. Users can access protected files through a web browser, mobile clients, or their native applications.

The solution can easily adapt to dynamic business situations and support ad hoc data sharing, while still allowing the organization to maintain centralized visibility and control of data-sharing policies. NextLabs also provides comprehensive auditing and reporting capabilities to satisfy compliance requirements.
