Brainloop's Security Solution Helps RWE Protect its Intellectual Property
for Conventional and Renewable Energies
Brainloop> announced today that RWE, has chosen its Brainloop Secure
Dataroom solution to extend the portfolio of IT solutions it uses to
securely share confidential documents.
Munich, Germany, February 10, 2011 -- Brainloop (
http://www.brainloop.com ) announced today that RWE, one of Europe’s
leading electricity, gas and water utilities with over 70,000 employees,
has chosen its Brainloop Secure Dataroom solution to extend the portfolio
of IT solutions it uses to securely share confidential documents.
The company selected the Brainloop Secure Dataroom, (
http://www.brainloop.com ) a web-based Document Compliance Management
solution, following a rigorous evaluation process and now uses it to
complement its existing procedures for sharing documents with staff from
other companies. The easy yet secure access to documents over the
Internet, along with the guaranteed protection while sharing sensitive
information, were just two of the reasons for RWE’s decision to use
Brainloop’s high-security, cloud-based service.
Company departments and business units throughout the RWE group are now
able to order their own access to a data room. With no need to install
hardware or software on users’ desktops, the Brainloop Secure Dataroom is
available for immediate use and reliably safeguards all the information
stored in it. The documents are protected from access by unauthorized
users with a two-factor login using a password and a one-time PIN texted
to the user’s cell phone. An optional watermark is also available as
additional protection to prevent the document from unauthorized
forwarding once it has been downloaded.
Andreas Ebert, from Group Security at RWE, is convinced of the solution’s
benefits. "With the Brainloop Secure Dataroom, we now have a web-based
solution optimally aligned with our group’s information protection
policies which govern the way we work with third parties," he comments.
"We are recommending to all our company departments, as well as to firms
we have equity in, that they use the data room solution for all their
information classified as confidential or strictly confidential. The
intuitive interface gives them a convenient solution that’s easy to use
while increasing the efficiency of our project-related processes. That
makes our business easier."
The manager of each Brainloop Secure Dataroom decides who has access to
the information contained in it and which permissions each user has. The
solution also includes operator shielding to ensure that system
administrators cannot access data room content. Read and write
permissions are defined within the data room and stored there along with
each document. Outside the data room, document protection can be extended
to the desktop by combining the Brainloop Secure Dataroom with digital
rights management (DRM) solutions from Microsoft and Adobe. This fulfills
the requirements for the best level of protection for RWE’s intellectual
property in confidential projects.
Frank Wendiggensen, from IT Governance at RWE IT, says: "In our view, the
fact that Brainloop’s solution is integrated with DRM makes it a viable
solution for the future, as we want to maintain ownership of information
protection over the long term."
RWE is currently using the Brainloop Secure Dataroom to work on renewable
energy projects as well as in joint ventures. The company is about to
extend the use of data rooms to other business units.
Brainloop, with offices in Munich and Boston, is the leading supplier of
software solutions for high-security management of confidential
documents. Brainloop Secure Dataroom is a virtual document safe that
enables safe filing, editing and distribution of highly confidential
documents within a single company, and beyond. All contents are
powerfully protected from unauthorized internal or external attacks, and
all actions within the data room are documented by an auditing system.
Frequent uses include contract negotiations, collecting data and writing
up quarterly reports, and any other communication that contains
confidential information. http://www.brainloop.com
