We’re living is a world where data is very important to us. We (admin) take every necessary step to make sure that data is not lost or stolen but still we face these issues many times. Even with putting firewalls and other comprehensive external security controls (which are complex and expensive) in place to protect data from external hackers, the data can also be stolen internally resulting into huge loss of Intellectual Properties (IP) and money of course.
The internal threats are via copying data to flash drive, printing, emailing, uploading to various other sites, etc. Admin have to give read rights to data to the users since they would be working on it but still some of them can easily stole it. And finding internal data stealing is not easier.
So what is the solution besides controlling USB ports, printers, Internet access? We need a proper data security management system in place to avoid the above issues and Curtain e-locker from Coworkshop (a SOLIDWORKS solution partner) fits into that role.
Curtain e-locker is an Information Rights Management (IRM) system that prevents sensitive information from leaking out of the company. Usually the read/write given to users are save, transfer, save outside the protected directory, print, etc. But with Curtain e-locker in place, a protected zone is formed and all unauthorized actions like saving anywhere or outside of protected zone, print screen, copying files to different location, etc. are prohibited resulting into more control over the data while users have rights to continue working on the confidential data. With the set up policies in place, users are free to use the data within in the protected zone.
Basic components Curtain™ e-locker
