Information Rights Management (IRM): Next Generation Information Protection

Information Rights Management (IRM) concerns the protection of sensitive information for business purposes — usually referring to documents and emails. IRM uses encryption as its armour, protecting permissions and document usage.

This white paper will discuss the various ways financial institutions can ensure document and information security and explains why Information Rights Management (IRM) is a critical protection tool for today’s enterprises.
