McAfee and Adobe have announced a joint solution that combines McAfee Data Loss Prevention’s (DLP) automated discovery of sensitive data with Adobe LiveCycle Rights Management’s persistent enforcement of sensitive data anywhere, anytime.
This solution will help automate data protection for customers by applying a LiveCycle Rights Management policy (DRM) to documents that have been determined to be highly sensitive by the McAfee DLP classification system.
Data protection requires a layered approach, and this partnership builds upon McAfee’s position as a trusted security partner to enterprises:
Together, McAfee and Adobe will deliver a DLP and DRM solution to expand the reach of data protection beyond the enterprise boundaries.
The combination of McAfee’s strength in policy-based data classification with Adobe’s leadership in policy-based document protection will allow organizations to more easily secure critical business information such as intellectual property and regulatory compliance data.
With this new solution, organizations worldwide can ensure access control to sensitive information is automatically applied based on classification of the data, and enforce corporate governance policies to reduce costly information loss.
