Intellectual Property Protection
The challenges of managing Intellectual Property (IP) are many. The task of protecting engineering data and other IP becomes problematic when dealing with third-party suppliers. How do you provide your suppliers and other partners with only the information they need and nothing more? Even internally, companies struggle with access control, maintaining audits and logs, and protecting their IP as a whole.
This paper describes some of the key challenges to protecting IP within the collaborative supply chain, outlines ten real-world best practices for managing those risks, and describes the NextLabs’ solution for implementing those best practices.
