Essential Security Software, Inc. announced support for Microsoft Windows Rights Management Services (RMS), and the extension of its capabilities beyond Active Directory requirements, allowing enterprise organizations to set and enforce document and e-mail usage policies for the secure exchange of e-mail and documents with small businesses. The announement was made at the Gilbane Enterprise DRM Conference in San Francisco. Windows RMS-enabled applications help safeguard digital information from unauthorized access and use. Essential Security Software will extend the Windows RMS platform by enabling the following: Interoperability between Essential Taceo, Essential Security Software’s peer-to-peer email and document security solution, and Microsoft’s RMS; Identification and management of keys for small businesses by Essential Taceo to enable small businesses that do not run Active Directory to securely exchange email and documents with enterprises that do; Automatic identity translation through Microsoft’s Rights Management Services to translate identity into and out of RMS for small business users of Taceo; and Rights translation and enforcement services through and between RMS and Essential Taceo.
