Toshiba launches enterprise Digital Rights Management solutions

Wednesday, February 17, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Irvine, Calif. - Toshiba America Business Solutions Inc. (TABS) today proudly announced the availability of Fasoo.com Digital Rights Management (DRM) solutions to its direct and independent dealers and their customers. Fasoo.com DRM solutions provide persistent document security through encryption technologies that limit document access to authorized users-only. Administrators can easily control access to Microsoft Office documents, PDFs, engineering drawings, images and other common file formats. They decide who can view, edit or print the documents and for how long. Administrators can even revoke access to a document after it's distributed.

"Fasoo's DRM applications will help Toshiba dealers and their customers provide even greater protection against unauthorized access to sensitive financial, technical and personal information," said Bill Melo, vice president, Marketing and Enterprise Services and Solutions, TABS. "Threats to information come from both inside and outside of organizations, and this technology helps dealers and customers better address these risks."

In the United States alone, companies lose more than $600 billion a year due to fraud and multifunction products (MFPs), by the sheer fact that they contain sensitive information, and are a critical point of vulnerability. The demand for safer information sharing is also increasing dramatically as more organizations adopt Enterprise Content Management (ECM) systems. Existing security measures within ECM applications provide insufficient document protection when files are opened and shared with external third parties. Lack of adequate document security exposes companies to significant risk and litigation if there is a breach of critical information. In addition to the innate desire to protect one's information and business, demand is also increasing due to recently passed federal regulations that demand increased information technology security.

Fasoo.com DRM policies can be applied to documents, personal computers (PCs), email, Web sites and any ECM system including Microsoft Office SharePoint Server. Documents are automatically encrypted with the DRM policy when created or downloaded. Document usage can be tracked, and the policy can be adjusted over a document's lifecycle, or changed at any time.

Toshiba's Professional Services organization will analyze an organization's document security and implement policies using Toshiba MFPs and Fasoo's technology to help customers reduce information risk, improve regulatory compliance and enhance productivity.

"Businesses are looking for ways to securely share important digital information with customers, partners, employees and others," said Dr. Kyugon Cho, CEO of Fasoo.com. "The combination of Fasoo.com technology with Toshiba's innovative imaging products and Document Specialists provides unmatched capabilities, integration expertise and service to meet each customer's unique needs."
