									Brainloop White Paper Looks at Secure Document Sharing

Ensuring Security Doesn’t Interfere with Productivity.

Boston, MA, Thursday - August 25, 2011 -- Secure document sharing must
reduce risk, remain in compliance with security mandates and ensure
adherence with governance policy. Document sharing must do all this
without puttingan additional burden on those sharing and using the
documents, notes a new white paper published today by Brainloop ( ), a leading supplier of software solutions for
high-security collaboration on confidential documents.

Titled "Enterprise Information Management Security Options," the paper
advocates that for any document sharing application to genuinely add
value, it must augment or complement the organization’s existing document
security infrastructure.

Organizationally, document sharing requirements ought to fit within
existing business processes. For example, the application should be
flexible enough to work as part of several processes used across the
enterprise. In particular, security policies should also govern and
control not only the confidentiality of the document itself, but the
ability to maintain protections once the document moves outside the

When the document is used outside the perimeter, it’s imperative to apply
rights management, which is key for protecting the document by
controlling the user’s ability to print, save, or forward the document.
Another factor to consider is the ability to limit the time a document is

In addition, security policies, including access rights and encryption,
must be associated with the document itself so that protection can be
maintained regardless of where the document travels and who gains access.

The paper outlines several best practices for secure document sharing,
listing end-user elements such as versioning, usage tracking,
discussions, and the ability to apply comments and annotations all of
which facilitate collaboration.

"When your work calls for collaboration with people outside your company,
Brainloop ( ) protects your confidential files
and automatically applies your company’s security policies, so you can
focus on getting the job done - safely and without a complicated process
to slow you down," said Paul Hands, Brainloop VP, Americas. "For more
