multi-enterprise collaboration solutionHERNDON, VA: Exostar, the cloud platform for secure enterprise and supply chain collaboration solutions expertise unveils its updated multi-enterprise collaboration solution. The solution now embodies the ability to protect digital rights management technology that extends information protection so that security contractors can act in accordance with the latest Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) provisions issued by the Department of Defense (DoD).

According to DFARS 252.204-7012, ‘Safeguarding Covered Defense Information and Cyber Incident Reporting’, makes compliance with over 100 security requirements identified in Special Publication 800-171 from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), a must. With these requirements, information can be guarded for local and network access across non-federal information systems and organizations.

Contractors and the Sub-Contractors who trade with Covered Defense Information (CDI) have time till December 2017 to abide with the DFARS mandate or risk contract loss. These Contractors and their partners need solutions to deliver secured collaboration across enterprise boundaries to elevate productivity, protect sensitive information, and ensure DoD compliance.

One of the biggest benefits of the Exostar community structure is the way they gather customer requirements through customer governance councils. These councils help direct the solution requirements and product roadmaps to address their ultimate concerns.

Exostar offers organizations the ability to use granular, document-centric security to constantly protect sensitive information anywhere it resides, that is possible by integrating the solution with Seclore’s Enterprise Digital Rights Management.

Document owners are empowered with the authority to enforce privacy on who can open, edit, copy/paste or print a document.  Owners can vaguely alter these privileges at any given time. “Incorporating Seclore’s rights management protection functionality means our customers can automatically apply, control, and audit policies that dictate who can access a document and what they can do with it, no matter where the document travels,” points out Vijay Takanti, Vice President of Security and Collaboration Solutions, Exostar.
