Seclore, the leading provider of Enterprise Digital Rights Management (EDRM) solutions, today announced that it was mentioned in the Gartner Market Guide for Information-Centric Endpoint and Mobile Protection. Gartner identified Seclore as a representative vendor for Cloud and EDRM information protection methods profiled in this research.

Gartner stated: “Information theft pays big benefits to thieves, and plagues businesses with long-term damage. It is the hack that keeps on giving, since the extent of breaches is not always known, and business information can have long-term exploit value, extending into years and lifetimes in the case of some medical and financial knowledge. Once thieves have obtained your business information, they can unplug from your systems and they will be difficult to trace.”

The report goes on to conclude that – “disk encryption remains the oldest and best defense against extraction from a lost, stolen or mishandled endpoint device. EDRM promises to be the most flexible and pervasive future technique to protect files regardless of where they travel. In between these extremes, choices should be made that match current information security concerns.”

A recent survey from ESG, Securing Information in the Age of External Collaboration,concludes that more than 1 in 4 companies believes it's very likely that sensitive data has been stolen by third party vendors. 98 percent of respondents cited the loss of sensitive data as a top or significant concern. Commonly stated reasons for data loss include emails sent to the wrong person (67 percent), unauthorized access (64 percent) and lost portable storage devices (61 percent). 

Seclore is expanding its GCC presence and operations in response to increasing demand for its award-winning solutions, with a new regional office in Dubai and the appointment of a new distributor in Saudi Arabia.

“We are truly ecstatic to be included in Gartner’s renowned Market Guide for information-centric endpoint solutions. Ensuring the effectiveness of one’s security and risk management strategy is a critical component to the organization's success”, said Vishal Gupta, Founder and CEO, Seclore, speaking at the Dubai office opening. “Despite today’s sluggish global economy, data losses are at all-time high and information centric security is gaining momentum. Our recent tie ups with SAP and SolidWorks have further enriched our product offerings, for vertical markets worldwide.”

Seclore is the most automated and adopted EDRM system in the world. With deep expertise, ease-of-use, advanced technology, and connectivity that delivers automated file protection, Seclore empowers businesses to strike the right balance between security and collaboration. Latest features include:

They can now open, edit, save, and print protected Office documents in their native Office 2016 apps running on Mac.

“We believe that our inclusion as a representative vendor in the guide is a result of our single-minded focus on becoming the most secure EDRM solution in the world.
