Workshare, the leading provider of document integrity solutions, today announced that its Protect product for document security has been selected as one of the four Top Policy Management Products of the year by SC Magazine. Workshare Protect was the only product among those honored that dealt with content distribution policy.
Workshare Protect received five stars, or an "outstanding" rating, in this year's award issue as a product for avoiding embarrassing and costly security breaches. Workshare Protect provides policy controls targeted at all organizations that need to transparently secure the exchange of documents without disrupting user productivity and the flow of business.
"Workshare Protect provides simple to manage, user-friendly policies that prevent the leakage of private and financial data and intellectual property," said Joe Fantuzzi, CEO and chairman at Workshare. "Adobe's Policy Server and others are just too hard to implement and don't solve the problems in a user- friendly way that does not disrupt everyday business. We are excited that SC Magazine has recognized Workshare Protect as a practical, powerful policy management solution."
SC Magazine's July 27 review of Workshare Protect provides the following description of risks involving dirty documents and how Protect diminishes them, "Buried beneath the neatly formatted exterior lies a wealth of metadata formed during the creation process. It can include the identities of authors, corrections made, 'deleted' text, and routing details. Workshare Protect is designed to automatically remove extraneous baggage and ensure that proprietary data does not leak out into the public domain. As well as scanning user-selected documents and removing unnecessary metadata, Protect also checks attachments on outgoing email."
This year, SC Magazine reviewed more than 200 products. From those products, reviewers at the publication selected the top performing products spanning all facets of security IT for inclusion in the publication's "Best of 2005" feature. The "best of" products are rated and covered in the December, 2005 issue, which is available on newsstands now.
