SealedMedia Version 5.0 Aims to Simplify Enterprise DRM

New version provides enhanced control and management of e-mail and digital content.

SealedMedia Inc. has announced that SealedMedia 5.0, the new release of its flagship enterprise digital rights management (E-DRM) platform, delivers unprecedented scalability, improved corporate compliance controls, and intuitive Web-based administration tools that simplify enterprise deployments.

The new release debuts following rigorous real-world enterprise testing and it features a Standard Administrative Model and a Web-based Management Console. These enhancements, coupled with the overall simplification of the implementation process, are intended to position SealedMedia 5.0 as a mainstream E-DRM solution for everyday enterprise users who need to safeguard digital content within, across and between organizations.

“SealedMedia 5.0 offers a bold leap in functionality coupled with unprecedented simplicity,” said SealedMedia CEO George Everhart. “It delivers E-DRM to the masses, safeguarding e-mail and digital content in the age of corporate compliance.”

In their announcement, SealedMedia pointed out that this is a critical time for CIOs, senior IT managers and risk management professionals. According to a recent survey of 29 companies that have deployed enterprise content management (ECM) systems:

  • only 45 percent of employees within those companies use the ECM system, meaning that content isn’t fully protected in the enterprise
  • 76 percent of participants say they are missing important content protection and control functionality
  • 80 percent of participants are interested in a solution that would allow them to protect content once it is checked out of the ECM system.

SealedMedia 5.0 is designed with these needs in mind. The release builds upon the company’s extensive real-world experience with more than 60 large-enterprise customers and partners, and leverages existing business processes while strengthening workflows. SealedMedia's goal is to transform E-DRM from a complex technology into a plug-and-play solution for everyday enterprise users.

“With SealedMedia 5.0, you are able to very quickly implement a robust, loophole-free, auditable and manageable system that supports Sarbanes-Oxley requirements such as segregation of duties,” said Everhart. “Rival offerings can’t do this because they lack enterprise-wide rules capabilities.”
