GigaTrust Releases the GigaTrust Protector for Open Text ECM Suite-Extends Microsoft’s Rights Management Services

Herndon, VA — May 5, 2010 — GigaTrust, the market leader in Enterprise Rights Management content protection software solutions that enhance and extend Microsoft’s Rights Management Services (RMS), today announced it has entered into a partnership agreement with Open Text Corporation (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC), the preeminent provider of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) software. As part of this partnership agreement the company is announcing the general availability of the GigaTrust Protector for Open Text an integrated software solution for the Open Text ECM Suite where content protection is applied automatically.

With this announcement, GigaTrust will broaden the Open Text security policy and automatically extend RMS protection to content other than Microsoft Office documents downloaded by users. In addition, GigaTrust will provide the means, when users upload documents to Open Text ECM Suite, to remove the protection allowing documents to be saved in their native state.

Protection of intellectual property and compliance with regulatory and corporate governance policies is changing the way people communicate and collaborate in their everyday work life. Open Text Record Management Services for the ECM Suite provides the built-in capability to protect documents created in Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel. The GigaTrust Protector will protect all other strategic file format and application needs such as PDF and CAD.

“More and more companies are looking for ways to control distribution and access to the information that runs their business”, said Lubor Ptacek, Vice President of Product Marketing, Open Text. “Through our partnership with GigaTrust and the integration of the GigaTrust Protector for Open Text ECM Suite, we are offering our customers a strong foundation to address this challenge.”

The GigaTrust Protector for the Open Text ECM Suite enforces the rights directly in the native client applications viewing the protected content. This architectural approach allows for seamless integration into operating environments with minimal change in user behavior.

“With the addition of GigaTrust’s Protector for the Open Text platform, information control can be applied in specific ways for different industries and to different business functions that use varied file formats”, said Darryl Worsham, Vice President of Business Development and Partner Products at GigaTrust. “These RMS-enabled solutions allow industry leading companies, such as Open Text, to better serve their customers not by having them react to regulation but by leveraging this technology.”

GigaTrust solutions allow users to access (create, share and collaborate) and protect content at rest, in transit and in use within and outside the enterprise. The combination of rights management services and applications from GigaTrust give customers the ability to protect intellectual property, securely collaborate with partners and meet regulatory and corporate governance compliance goals.
