Vaultize Introduces Digital Rights Management in its Virtual Data Room Solution

Vaultize Introduces Digital Rights Management in its Virtual Data Room Solution

NEW YORK, LONDON and MUMBAI, May 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ —

Vaultize (www.vaultize.com [http://www.vaultize.com ]), the leader in Enterprise File
Sync & Share (EFSS) [http://www.vaultize.com/enterprise-file-sharing.html ], mobile
collaboration [http://www.vaultize.com/mobile-content-management-byod.html ] and VPN-free
anywhere access [http://www.vaultize.com/vpn-free-anywhere-access.html ], today announced the availability of Digital Rights Management
[http://www.vaultize.com/rights-management.html ] (DRM, aka Information Rights Management or IRM) fully integrated with its Virtual Data Room (VDR)
[http://www.vaultize.com/solutions/virtual-data-room ] offering.

“VDR provides a secure repository that enables the parties involved in a transaction
to access confidential documents online in a secure environment. Due to the sensitive
nature, it mandates stringent security and access requirements. Hence the traditional VDR
solutions restrict the access to shared document only through web browsers making them
accessible only when the user is online, creating friction for end-users. With the
popularity of sync & share solutions, the end-users now expect the VDR documents to be
available on any device and from anywhere – even while offline”, said Ankur Panchbudhe,
CTO & Co-founder of Vaultize. “Vaultize VDR combines best from both the worlds – security
of VDR and consumer-like user experience of sync & share. It provides desktop sync to
managed users such that they can sync the documents to device of their choice through a
corporate authentication system (like Active Directory). And, it allows other parties to
download the documents on their devices. The downloaded documents are DRM-encrypted using
patent pending Micro-containerization technology such that the access rights travel along
with the documents and those documents are only usable by the authorized recipients in compliance with DRM protection settings.”

Vaultize is serving leading BFSI (banks, financial services and insurance), media,
healthcare, manufacturing, automotive, education and governments worldwide to protect
their sensitive data without compromising the end-user experience. Vaultize takes an
information-centric (or document-centric) approach to information security by ensuring
that corporate information and data always stays in control of IT. It allows end-users to
securely create, access, edit, annotate and share documents irrespective of where they are
(within as well as beyond the corporate fence) and independent of the device they use
(laptop, desktop, smartphone or tablet) – whether managed or unmanaged – just like any
consumer solution. Hence, with Vaultize, productivity, efficiency, security and control go hand-in-hand.

Vaultize DRM allows the document owner (and the corporate IT) to control the use of
shared documents and manage (and even revoke) the permissions to open, view, download,
print, copy-paste, forward and edit those documents. In addition to the protection, the
embedded DRM enables detailed tracking and auditing of shared files wherever they go – independent of location, device and user.”

With Vaultize DRM, security and efficiency go hand-in-hand. Even with security features like document encryption based on DRM, end-users require no training to
incorporate this data in their regular workflow. The security, control and tracking are
transparent to the end-user but are powerful enough to ensure end-to-end security, zero
data leakage and compliance. Combined with built-in Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM),
Data Loss Prevention (DLP) and now DRM capabilities, Vaultize platform helps enterprises
embrace BYOD even in highly regulated and security-conscious verticals, including Fortune 500s.

Key features of Vaultize DRM are:

– Access rights – provides control over who can open, view, edit, print,
copy-paste, forward and download the documents or the information contained in them
– Location control – provides control over geo-locations and IP ranges from where the recipient can access the data
– Expiration – Document owner can set automatic expiration on the DRM-protected
data. The expiration parameter can also be controlled by corporate IT through DRM policies
– Password – Password can be mandated for every sharing through predefined corporate policies
– Revoking rights – IT can remotely revoke the permissions/rights for accessing
the shared documents, even after they are downloaded by a recipient on his own device
– Protect Content on Mobile Devices – Based on the Mobile Content Management
(MCM) policy, the documents shared within the organization can be restricted to
view-only access on mobile devices (iOS and Android) or can be restricted to
controlled editing using a built-in editor for MS office and PDF annotation by controlling the copy-paste, printing and moving to other mobile apps – Protect email attachments – Vaultize Outlook Plug-in can be used to
automatically replace email attachments with DRM-protected links. This replacement can
be controlled by the IT using policies based on attachment size, recipient domains etc.
– DLP Connector (with data classification support) – Sensitive documents can be
automatically DRM protected before being downloaded by scanning and classifying them through a DLP solution
– Secure Online Document Viewer – The viewing of shared documents by
third-parties can be restricted to view-only access through a secure web-based online
document viewer, with full IT control on printing, copy-paste and screenshots
– Digital Watermarking – With the online document viewer, watermarks (like logo
or copyright texts) can be added to each page of the document to discourage printing,
screen capture or photo capture. This watermarking has options for embedding text, image, email and IP address of share link recipient
– Watermarked downloads – Based on policy, downloads of shared files can be restricted to watermarked PDFs
– Auto updates – The documents can be kept (based on the option at the time of
sharing) in sync such that they are auto updated whenever the sender makes changes to them
– File Types – The micro containerization technology used by Vaultize for DRM
allows fine-grained control over MS Office, PDF and other type of documents
– Tracking – The usage of a file is completely tracked such that an audit trail
of activities like opening, sharing, viewing, editing, forwarding and printing is maintained at the level of file, individual user and share link

sharing, secure anywhere mobile access and mobile collaboration with DRM, MCM, DLP and
endpoint backup. It has presence in 50+ countries – including the US, Europe, APAC and

The 4 Battles Shaping the Future of the Connected Home

The 4 Battles Shaping the Future of the Connected Home

EDINBURGH, Scotland, May 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ —

The latest research from Delta-ee identifies the future of the connected home market will be shaped by four battles:

1) To become the reference radio and communication protocol; 2) Between the different ways to make devices interact with each other in absence of true interoperability;
3) For having a fixed in-home device which will replace the cloud in absence of internet in the house;
4) To be at the centre of the house by providing an IoT platform.

For example, we see that WiFi is in a strong position to be a winning connected home
communication protocol. WiFi is backed up by a strong mobile industry, where billions of
devices come with it, while the upcoming connected home radios have yet to demonstrate
they can reach such scale. In the meantime WiFi chips will remain much cheaper than
competitors. WiFi devices also don’t require a gateway to connect to the cloud, which is
another advantage as this extra white box can be costly, hardly upgradable and seen as unnecessary in the eyes of the customer.

(Logo:
http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20141030/713648 )

Arthur Jouannic, Senior Analyst at Delta-ee said: “Platforms with gateways such as
Google/Nest or Samsung/Smart Things will need to justify the cost of this extra device. It
will have to be able to run all the connected devices of the house at times when the internet connection is lost, to store information, download and process apps.”

As the market develops, open platforms and better interoperability between devices
will be required to develop the Internet of Things. Arthur added: “Customers will buy
devices from different manufacturers and will expect them to work with each other. If some
platforms like Google and Apple are likely to remain top-end walled-garden approaches,
interesting developments have been made recently with Allseen and Open-Interconnect. We
expect that both approaches will have a role but in different parts of the market.”

This research comes from Delta-ee’s Connected Home Service and the ‘Infrastructure’
report which is now available to subscribers – more information is available from http://www.delta-ee.com.

As the need for analyzing huge volumes of data presents an immense opportunity for
businesses today, there has been a growing demand globally for analytics professionals to
power the Big Data industry. To cater to this emerging trend, NIIT has introduced
cutting-edge programs in Big Data. Parallely NIIT has also tied up with University of
Finance and Economy, Guizhou to train students through the “NIIT Inside model” – a very
unique business model for co-operation with Universities and Colleges in China where NIIT
programs are embedded in the University/College IT curriculum. Students may undergo a 4
year Bachelor Degree program or a 3 year Associate Degree program post 12th grade in
Information Technology. Currently, the NIIT curriculum is embedded into both these
programs across multiple Universities and Colleges in China. While the University system
continues to teach the rest of the subjects that a student undergoes such as Chinese
language, science etc to obtain a Bachelor Degree, the IT portion is completely from NIIT.
The students get the degree or the associate degree from the University/Government and also receive a certificate from NIIT.

Speaking on the occasion Mr. Prakash Menon, President, NIIT China, said: “It is indeed
a privilege to be invited by the Chinese Govt. to create a pool of Big Data professionals
for its booming IT industry. Also, according to the latest reports, China has the largest
and fastest growing online population and it is an honour to develop professionals for the thriving internet space.”

“NIIT was the first Indian IT training company to establish a presence in China in the
late nineties with a vision to create a manpower pool, to empower the software industry in the country. We are committed to supporting China in its human capacity building
initiative and it gives us great pleasure to join hands with Guian New Area to further
open and accelerate new-age career opportunities like Big Data,” added Mr. Menon.

Apart from this, NIIT will offer wide range of cutting-edge IT skills training across
various fields through its state-of-the-art Cloud Campus. Currently, there are over 10,000
students studying in the New University Town campus which is likely to grow to nearly
25,000 over the next few years. Hence, there exists a potential to train a large number of
students. NIIT will help support the vision of the Guizhou Government and would train
these students to develop the next generation of data scientists and business analytics professionals for opportunities in the Big Data industry.

NIIT, a global leader in skills and talent development, established its presence in
China in 1997, becoming the first Indian IT enterprise to do so. Over the years, NIIT has
been training skilled IT professionals for China’s software outsourcing industry. With the
support of its outstanding partners and institutions, it has trained more than 150,000 students in the country.

SHANGHAI and NEW DELHI, India, May 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ —

To develop Human Capital in line with China’s vision to promote Guian as the national center for the Big Data industry

NIIT, a global leader in skills and talent development, has entered into an agreement
with Guian New Area in the Guizhou province of China, to train students from the province
in Career Programs in Big Data. The agreement was signed by Mr. Prakash Menon, President,
NIIT China and Mr. Chen Yan, authorized representative from Guizhou Guian New District, in

on the occasion were leaders from the government, CEOs of Indian and Chinese companies as well as Chief Ministers of Gujarat and Maharashtra.

Earlier this year NIIT and Guian New Area in the Guizhou province entered into a
Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), to offer programs in new-age IT, with a special focus
on Big Data. The agreement brings the MoU into effect with NIIT setting up a centre in
Guian New Area to train 50,000 students in five years, to help realize China’s vision to
promote Guian as the national center for the Big Data industry. The entire project will be
funded by the Government of China as Guian has been identified by the Government as the national center for the Big Data Industry.

As the need for analyzing huge volumes of data presents an immense opportunity for
businesses today, there has been a growing demand globally for analytics professionals to
power the Big Data industry. To cater to this emerging trend, NIIT has introduced cutting-edge programs in Big Data.

Parallely NIIT has also tied up with University of Finance and Economy, Guizhou to
train students through the “NIIT Inside model” – a very unique business model for
co-operation with Universities and Colleges in China where NIIT programs are embedded in
the University/College IT curriculum. Students may undergo a 4 year Bachelor Degree
program or a 3 year Associate Degree program post 12th grade in Information Technology.
Currently, the NIIT curriculum is embedded into both these programs across multiple
Universities and Colleges in China. While the University system continues to teach the
rest of the subjects that a student undergoes such as Chinese language, science etc to
obtain a Bachelor Degree, the IT portion is completely from NIIT. The students get the degree or the associate degree from the University/Government and also receive a certificate from NIIT.

Speaking on the occasion Mr. Prakash Menon, President, NIIT China, said: “It is indeed
a privilege to be invited by the Chinese Govt. to create a pool of Big Data professionals
for its booming IT industry. Also, according to the latest reports, China has the largest
and fastest growing online population and it is an honour to develop professionals for the thriving internet space.”

“NIIT was the first Indian IT training company to establish a presence in China in the
late nineties with a vision to create a manpower pool, to empower the software industry in the country. We are committed to supporting China in its human capacity building
initiative and it gives us great pleasure to join hands with Guian New Area to further
open and accelerate new-age career opportunities like Big Data,” added Mr. Menon.

Apart from this, NIIT will offer wide range of cutting-edge IT skills training across
various fields through its state-of-the-art Cloud Campus. Currently, there are over 10,000
students studying in the New University Town campus which is likely to grow to nearly
25,000 over the next few years. Hence, there exists a potential to train a large number of
students. NIIT will help support the vision of the Guizhou Government and would train
these students to develop the next generation of data scientists and business analytics professionals for opportunities in the Big Data industry.

NIIT, a global leader in skills and talent development, established its presence in
China in 1997, becoming the first Indian IT enterprise to do so. Over the years, NIIT has
been training skilled IT professionals for China’s software outsourcing industry. With the
support of its outstanding partners and institutions, it has trained more than 150,000 students in the country.

Back Office Workforce Optimisation to Unleash Hidden Productivity and Improve the Customer Experience

Back Office Workforce Optimisation to Unleash Hidden Productivity and Improve the Customer Experience

EMEA and APAC markets trail behind North America in adopting these high-impact service delivery tools, finds Frost & Sullivan

LONDON, May 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — The shift of power into the hands of consumers has made it imperative for organisations to improve standards of service delivery through back office workforce optimisation (BOWFO). Companies are rapidly realising that customer service is no longer the sole province of the front office and are identifying the impact unresolved issues in the back office have on the overall business. Thus, BOWFO tools, which can cut down inefficiencies, while maintaining and boosting quality, process compliance and resource allocation, can be expected to witness significant traction globally.

Despite the major cost pressures on account of the strained global economic climate, organisations are readily adopting BOWFO, reveals the new study from Frost & Sullivan, Profiling the Back Office Workforce Optimisation Market(http://www.frost.com/mae5). A canon of forces, which include faster return on investment, increased productivity, enhanced customer service delivery, and greater transparency have been motivating organisations to invest in BOWFO solutions.

For complimentary access to more information on this research, please visit: http://corpcom.frost.com/forms/EU_PR_EGrabowska_MAE5-76_16Feb15.

“The North American market has demonstrated the highest uptake rates, with a large number of early adopters of BOWFO tools in comparison to Europe, the Middle East, Africa (EMEA) and Asia-Pacific (APAC),” said Frost & Sullivan Information & Communication Technologies Principal Analyst Nancy Jamison. “Strong labour laws in EMEA and a cautious approach to investment in APAC have kept these markets behind North America in terms of the adoption curve.”

Although BOWFO tools are gaining popularity, tenured management in most organisations still rely heavily on spreadsheets for resource planning, performance management, and other operational needs. Many back office managers believe that their issues are so unique that no out-of-the-box solution can improve performance levels. This has resulted in the suboptimal uptake of BOWFO tools.

The lack of awareness on the benefits of BOWFO and the existence of competing solutions that partially address back office issues are key challenges for the market. The misplaced belief that front office WFO solutions can be retrofitted to suit back office operations is also a cause for concern.

“Vendors should build awareness on these solutions to convince senior management of BOWFO’s potential to support the efficient and effective delivery of brand promises while creating a true omni-channel customer experience,” advised Jamison. “Along with this, they must introduce BOWFO solutions that can act as an extension to front office WFO solutions and provide a unified view for managing the workforce, allocating work, and ensuring its dependable completion.”

“With the right BOWFO solutions, market participants can exploit the tremendous growth opportunities that the emerging market holds,” concluded Frost & Sullivan Information & Communication Technologies Lead Consultant Martin Hoff ter Heide. “Though the financial services and insurance industries are the leading early adopters of BOWFO solutions, other sectors, including government, healthcare, telecommunications, utilities and pharmaceuticals will catch up over time.”

India’s young population is its greatest asset. Within that, there are close to 7
million graduates including 1.5 million engineers who are academically qualified to join
the workforce every year. HCL TalentCare plans to hone the aptitude of these talented
youngsters with additional skills that prepare and align them for effective employment.
The bridging of the skills gap by initiatives such as these will help India’s growing
economy tremendously and also complement and contribute to the Government’s mission to skill and up-skill about 500 million people by 2022.

Aligning itself with the larger skill development agenda in the country, the company
is partnering with the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) to design and deliver solutions that address the skill development needs of India Inc.

Addressing the conference, Mr. Shiv Nadar, Founder and Chairman, HCL Corporation,
said, “Today, more than half of India’s population is under the age of 25, with 65 percent
of the population under 35. About 12 million individuals are expected to join the
workforce every year. While India’s young population is its greatest asset, many young
Indians are not equipped with the skills required for effective employment. I believe that
this is the right moment to step in to address this skill gap challenge facing the nation
today. This will help us realize our demographic dividend and create Talent Made in India.”

Ms. Roshni Nadar, CEO and Executive Director, HCL Corporation, said, “Our strategic
direction is to focus on spaces that would be the catalysts for economic growth – Technology, Healthcare and People. After spending four decades in technology, we
diversified into healthcare last year. We now complete this journey with the launch of HCL TalentCare.”

She further added, “A people-intensive organization with over 100,000 people, HCL has
nurtured and developed a strong pool of talent which is one its key differentiators. HCL
professionals today are the backbone of leading global enterprises across industries. Our
strong expertise in training and skilling talent for forty years makes us suitably poised
to address the talent needs across industries. HCL TalentCare is envisaged as a hub for
developing trained and skilled workforce for people intensive industries like IT, BFSI and
Healthcare. With HCL TalentCare, we take a step forward in raising the quality-quotient of talent in this country and creating the HCL of the future.”

Mr. Premkumar S, Chief Mentor, HCL TalentCare said, “There is a ‘talent-divide’ that
has been created as more than 75% graduates today are not job-ready. India Inc. is
witnessing high attrition rates of 20% and above because of expectation mismatch at the
0-3 year experience band that is hurting enterprises very badly. Corporate India is keen
to hire “role ready” talent to meet its growing demand for skilled professionals.” He also
added, “HCL TalentCare’s key objective is to offer skill development and staffing
solutions that will provide a career launch pad for students on one side and a ready pool
of employable talent for enterprises. A structured approach like this will lead to on-demand staffing of trained and certified resources which is an imperative for competitiveness across industries.”

HCL TalentCare plans to enroll, train and provide career opportunities to more than
20,000 graduates over the next three years across its campuses in Manesar, Hyderabad and
Chennai. The rigorous training program is aimed at strengthening their core skills,
business understanding and communication skills. At the end of the program, the graduates
will become world-class professionals, who will have the opportunity to work in top global companies.

“The high degree of change in Technology , Regulatory and Operational aspects of a
role made it imperative for us to design the program with a commit to appropriately
upgrade the skill set of our scholars with a view to making them future-proof through TalentSurance – a first-of-its-kind skill warranty,” added Mr. Premkumar.

HCL TalentCare enables anytime-anywhere learning that is industry-focused with
personalized development paths, digital immersion, online, classroom and on-job learning,
continuous tracking and progress reporting, individual counseling and mentoring. Courses
will be delivered using a mix of classroom-based instructor-led training along with on job
practice of concepts taught in the course. Soft skills training will be imparted by
industry experts through games, activities and guest lectures on behavioral and technical areas.

Admission to the flagship program – Young Engineer Program (YEP), a holistic six month
skilling program focused on engineering graduates, is through a Jobability Quotient
(JQ(TM)) test. HCL TalentCare offers a Signature Learning Experience – a proprietary
approach designed to transform skills and capabilities of students in a short window of
time and prepare them for a professional career by honing their skills and making them industry ready.
