Vaultize Integrates its Enterprise File Sharing and Rights Management With Data Loss Prevention Solutions

NEW YORK, LONDON and MUMBAI, September 16, 2015 — Vaultize, the enterprise file security leader and among the 20 Most Promising BYOD Solution providers, announced integration with popular Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solutions and becoming the first enterprise file sync & share (EFSS) solution provider to proactively detect sensitive files to protect them through enterprise digital rights management (eDRM aka enterprise information rights management) before they get shared by employees from their company-managed as well as BYOD (Bring-Your-Own-Device) devices.

Seamless integration of enterprise digital rights management  with enterprise file sharing, mobile collaboration, mobile content management (MCM) under a single platform strengthens the position of Vaultize as the leader in enterprise file security – giving enterprise IT end-to-end security, control and visibility, while providing Dropbox-like user experience to end-users.

“DLP traditionally started as a way to identify the sensitive data and prevent it from going outside. This was too restrictive as the automatic enforcement of security policies, like digital rights management, selectively on sensitive documents has never been possible. With integration of its enterprise rights management with popular DLP solutions, Vaultize now ensures that the information that requires highest security is locked down automatically and secured with DRM controls before getting distributed, while information that does not need securing is not touched”, said Anand Kekre, CEO & Co-founder of Vaultize. “The DRM security policy enforcement is performed without compromising user experience and normal user workflows on company managed devices as well as BYOD mobile devices. In addition to protection, the embedded DRM enables detailed tracking and auditing of shared files wherever they go – independent of location, device and user.”

When deployed together with DLP solution, Vaultize can get files scanned by DLP engines using Internet Content Adaption Protocol (ICAP) protocol before they can be shared by employees using file sync & share, or through email attachments using Outlook, or through Vaultize mobile apps.

Vaultize mobile apps have built-in Mobile Content Management (MCM) that allows corporate IT to prevent data loss, security and compliance breaches by controlling what end-users can do with corporate data through a built-in document editor for MS Office editing and PDF annotation. Vaultize’s rights management integrates with mobile content management such that files shared through Vaultize mobile apps stay DRM-protected even after they are downloaded by the recipient on a device not under control of the company IT.

Vaultize DRM uses US patent-pending Micro-containerization technology, which is agnostic to file-formats and provides end-to-end file security. In this information centric approach to enterprise digital rights management, Vaultize embeds access rights in the document itself such that it is only usable by the authorized recipients in compliance with DRM-protection policies. Through this, access to shared documents can be controlled and permissions to open, view, download, print, copy-paste, forward and edit those documents can be managed (and even revoked). The shared documents can also be watermarked and can be given restricted access through web-based online document viewer.

Vaultize helps Fortune 500 companies, including those in security-conscious and regulated verticals ensure end-to-end file security, control and visibility of corporate sensitive data. The end-users get Dropbox-like user experience with the ability to access, edit and share documents from any device (including BYOD) from anywhere. Enterprise IT can choose between the flexible deployment options to deploy either on-premise (on a single server or a scalable private cloud) or use a hosted service from Vaultize public cloud (from Amazon Web Service (AWS) and Vaultize MSP partner data centers).

Vaultize’s US patented technology Vault KNOX performs military-grade encryption of data together with de-duplication on user devices at the source itself – making it the most secure and efficient file sharing solution in the world. Vaultize’s unique data containerization process provides unprecedented security down to the file level, liberating users form relying on third-party security protocols.
