Seclore, an Enterprise Digital Rights Management (EDRM) provider, announced the release of its new Seclore EDRM solution, adding further advancements in persistent, data-centric security. The technology offers the most robust usage controls and advanced capabilities to ensure files are secure wherever they travel.

Seclore EDRM enables organizations in healthcare, legal, manufacturing and enterprise sectors to attach persistent, granular usage controls to any type of file as it is shared with collaborators, both within and outside of the company's perimeter. The latest enhancements to Seclore's EDRM allow users to control who can access the file, what they can do with the file (view, edit, copy, print, screen share, run macros), from where (by device or IP address) and when.

Additional features include:

Bring Your Own Key (BYOK): Organizations can now align Seclore's key exchange mechanism with their overall cryptographic key management and security strategy. The new and pioneering 'Bring Your Own Key (BYOK)' feature enables organizations to use key management systems such as Hardware Security Modules (HSMs). The BYOK capability provides enterprises with unprecedented flexibility in managing their security while still retaining complete control over their own data and encryption.

Two-factor authentication for server-to-server communication: Organizations can now use two-factor authentication using encryption keys that are enterprise controlled to lock down server-to-server communication.

Extended watermarking: Watermarked viewing and printing is now available for all Seclore clients. Every document is rendered with a dynamic, user-specific watermark, which drastically reduces the risk of data leakage, even by mobile devices and cameras.

Strengthening client-server communication: Seclore has now added another security layer within an SSL tunnel to protect all client-server communication and further strengthen internal product security. With data leakage stories making the headlines regularly, Seclore EDRM continues to focus on stringent security for its own communications.

The latest enhancements also features advances in ease-of-use and connectivity, including:

E-mail protector auto discovery: New users are greeted with a quick illustration of how to use the Seclore Email Protector, and why. The new user interface reduces the need for user training and increases adoption

New file protection user interface (UI): Seclore has also introduced a new intuitive UI for protecting files and assigning user permissions. Searching and adding users is now much easier with intelligent, 'autofill' suggestions based on user inputs

Next-generation policy federation: Parameters such as file owner, classification, and watermark content can now be federated from an integrated application. This enables tighter and more complete integration of any enterprise application with EDRM capabilities

Enhanced agentless access to protected files: Richer agentless access with all image formats supported in Seclore Lite Online

Advanced policy federation for Microsoft SharePoint: Enabling full Policy Federation capabilities ensures that downloaded files are automatically protected with the same permissions as in MS SharePoint. Granting or revoking permissions in MS SharePoint will be enforced even on previously downloaded files.
