May 12, 2009 — GigaTrust Broadens its Suite of Intelligent Rights Management Products to the Windows Server 2008 Platform


By Extending the Capabilities of Microsoft’s Active Directory Rights Management Services GigaTrust Enables Secure Email and Content Protection No Matter the File Format, Platform or User

Herndon, VA — May 12, 2009 — GigaTrust, the market leader in Enterprise Rights Management (ERM) content protection software solutions that enhance and extend Microsoft’s Rights Management Services (RMS), today announced that its entire suite of products support Windows Server 2008 and Active Directory Rights Management Services (ADRMS). The combination of ADRMS from Microsoft® and Intelligent Rights Management™ products from GigaTrust, make it the most comprehensive ERM solution available on the market today — enabling secure anyone-to-anyone collaboration inside or outside the enterprise whether on a desktop or BlackBerry® mobile device.

GigaTrust’s product suite is now available for Windows Server 2008 and offers users tightly integrated features developed exclusively for RMS. Key capabilities include:

  • Security for additional File Formats with Native Viewing including non-Office file formats such as PDF and CAD files produced in applications such as NX from Siemens PLM. There is also support for PTC ProductView, Pro/Engineer, Solidworks, AutoCAD and more … and can be used to protect almost any format in a Windows environment.
  • Prevention of Screen Capture and Screen Sharing that can block over 250 screen capture/remote sharing programs from being used to steal protected data while being viewed by users inside or outside an enterprise.
  • Automatic Protection that makes it easy for organizations to ensure the enforcement of security policy throughout their community of users – in email and attachments, file shares and content repositories.

In addition, with GigaTrust’s product suite administrators can:

  • Automate the creation of User Accounts for external parties with a thin provisioning client on a group basis, or an ad hoc, one-by-one basis
  • Create Allow/Block lists for an added level of granularity of control.
  • Build and maintain a secure communication network for your business partners and supply chain.
  • Allow users to build ad hoc and specialized policy rules.
  • Ensure compliance with privacy laws and government regulations.
  • Revoke permissions — quickly and easily.
  • View reports of authorized and unauthorized attempts to view content.

“This release provides valuable capabilities for both individual users as well as the ADRMS administrative team” said Harry Piccariello, Chief Marketing Officer of GigaTrust. “Our suite of products are now available on the Windows Server 2008 platform which makes it easier for individual users within an organization to take full advantage of the security features in ADRMS and administrators to understand how ADRMS is being used throughout the organization — by whom, when, and for which documents — as well as the guidelines to develop policies that automate the protection of content.”
