EMC Documentum IRM encrypts and protects documents from unauthorized viewing, copying and printing. The solution works wherever the document needs to be viewed or saved. A central policy server holds encryption keys for content and the policies controlling its use. Policies can be changed on the fly and applied to documents after they are delivered to users within the enterprise. Users download a small client that allows them to access and work on the documents youre protecting. Documents can be digitally watermarked for viewing and printing. Documentum IRM is a complete DLP solution with support for protecting just about any kind of content out there.
Lumension Application Control and Device Control
Application Control supplements the solution by establishing a white list of accepted applications and then blocking anything else from executing. This prevents malware and malicious script from running and therefore protects data against theft from them. Solid, detailed reports are available in both products.
