Symbiosis for records and rights
EMC Documentum has launched two new offerings, Information Rights Management (IRM) Services and Records Manager 5.3, which are designed to meet the demands of regulatory requirements and ensure more secure information sharing and disposal.
Documentum says IRM Services combines EMC content management software with IRM technology garnered through its acquisition of Authentica. The company explains the new software gives content owners more control over information access and use, including the ability to restrict user access, set up watermarks, block printing or forwarding to unauthorized recipients and revoke the ability to open a file. It also maintains a complete audit trail of document activity and allows administrators to change user privileges at any time--even as files are copied or distributed outside the corporate firewall.
Records Manager 5.3 enables full content life cycle flexibility and control of corporate records, says Documentum. And, through its service-oriented architecture, the software facilitates integration with other business applications and internal systems. Hence, customers can customize the appropriate level records management functionality based on their own requirements, from basic records retention to a full DOD 5015.2-compliant solution.
EMC Documentum has also introduced IRM Services for eRoom, which provides the same level of protection and security for Version 7.3 of its Web-based collaborative environment.
