SecloreFileSecureSeclore has announced the availability of version 2.20 of its flagship information rights management (IRM) technology, Seclore FileSecure. Major enhancements include an integration framework for new desktop applications, operating systems, transactional and information management applications.

Abhijit Tannu, CTO of Seclore said, “As the adoption of IRM technology increases, enterprises and ISVs will be forced to integrate other technology elements with IRM technology. The latest release of Seclore FileSecure acknowledges this fact and also cuts down the time to integrate by up to 80 percent.”

With V2.20 Seclore FileSecure has incorporated a framework for incorporating compatibility with a wide variety of operating systems like Windows 7 and desktop applications. Seclore’s recent partnership with Autodesk has already delivered results with this release supporting dominant AutoCAD applications. This is true for PDFs also where the release gives enterprises the freedom to use the smaller footprint and secure Foxit PDF reader and supports rich annotation within the reader itself. Numerous image formats can be protected and rendered within the rich inbuilt image viewer or other dominant desktop imaging tools.

Seclore FileSecure has also incorporated a framework for integration with a variety of transactional and information management (IM) applications. The framework has already been put to use by the company demonstrating integrations with IBM FileNet and Newgen Omnidocs, the most dominant electronic content management systems globally and in India respectively. The integration framework for transactional and IM applications allows applications to seamlessly incorporate IRM functionality and protect information leaving the application via downloads/check-out and ensure that the incoming information can be unprotected before being stored. Web service-based APIs combined with a pluggable framework significantly ease this integration.

The new release also incorporates the Discover-Tag-Protect (DTP) framework released earlier this year for integration with DLP and electronic discovery systems. The DTP framework allows content discovery and classification systems to protect discovered information based on rules and policies defined within.

Seclore FileSecure V2.20 incorporates a formal method of integrating with standards compliant as well as proprietary authentication systems. With standards compliant authentication the support is built in using the identity integration frameworks which includes numerous industry standard systems like Microsoft AD, SunONE, Domino, Tivoli and OpenDS. For propreitary systems a framework for identity federation as well as SSO provides an easy-to-use method to use the systems identity store for authentication of Seclore Filesecure protected documents.

Administrative activities in V2.20 can also be audited for compliance to business rules and policies. Also as an added feature, information about desktop configuration and application details can be exported for easy management of end client infrastructure and resolving potential conflicts.
