Small Business Rights Management: (SBRM) Defined

Content is constantly traversing perimeters - Security structures must focus on perimeters and content

Security should be a subset of content/document management - Embed the security in the document or email

Lets businesses dynamically control access and use of document and email content, both inside and outside the enterprise

Prevent printing, forwarding cut/copy or screen capture, set expiration times/dates on email and files

Works with popular file formats, including Microsoft Office documents and PDFs

Email: The Weak Link

In 2005, unauthorized distribution of digital information cost the average company $355,552, a two-fold increase from the 2004 rate of $168,529.1

Businesses expressed the most concern about confidential memos (75.7%) and intellectual property (71.4%) leaving their organizations via email.

More than 50% of those surveyed point out the need for control over sensitive financial information i.e. pricing lists, customer proposals, etc.

Theft of proprietary information was the third most costly security breach after virus & denial of service attacks.
