Brainloop, the leading supplier of Document Compliance Management solutions for highly secure document sharing, announced that it now supports Adobe LiveCycle Rights Management™. Brainloop has supported a similar solution with Microsoft’s Rights Management Services for a number of years, managing access rights for users of Microsoft Office documents.
Brainloop provides a hosted (SaaS) service for collaboration on confidential documents for such applications as biotech licensing, project collaboration, secure communication, M&A due diligence and other applications that need to support document security compliance. Typical users are com-panies conducting high-profile transactions or engaged in highly sensitive collaboration scenarios calling for the strictest encryption, access control and auditability standards.
The integration of Brainloop’s data room service with Adobe LiveCycle RM and Microsoft RMS al-lows IT administrators or document authors to set secure, persistent document access policies and privileges, while maintaining an audit trail of all document access and changes to meet corporate and regulatory compliance objectives. Access rights are applied to documents saved in the data room and protect the documents even after they have been downloaded to the users’ local com-puters.
Using rights management, customised document restrictions such as control over editing, printing, and forwarding, can be centrally defined on the server, and remain in place after download. The user receives a personal, encrypted copy of the document. This personalised copy cannot be opened by other users at any time. The document owner can specify an expiration date, after which time users can no longer open their personal copies of the document.
“We’re proud to be the only vendor in document compliance management to be fully integrated with both Adobe LiveCycle and with Microsoft RMS, allowing our customers to apply rights management to more types of documents than they previously could do, and within a fully documented collaboration environment” said Brainloop CEO, Peter Weger. “With this kind of integration, Brainloop does the heavy lifting so it’s very easy for document owners to apply and enforce security policy to documents delivered from the data room to the user.”
