A recent press release reports, “Storage Made Easy™ (SME) today announced that they had strengthened their File Fabric multi-cloud solution with document watermarking policies. The feature enables administrators to set policies at a storage or folder level to protect documents with watermarks. This feature ties in with existing Data Loss Protection (DLP) policies that can restrict users from downloading files and only previewing them in a web browser. The feature can also be used to ensure that any documents shared by end users are always shared with a digital watermark that can be used to identify the end user sharing the document.”
The release continues, “The Storage Made Easy File Fabric is a storage agnostic multi-cloud solution which can work with a combination of on-cloud and on-premises data stores to make company data more productive and secure. Jim Liddle, CEO, said: ‘Watermarks have been around a long time as a means to establish proof of ownership. Although digital watermarks are not in and of themselves DRM controls, they can be used to establish proof of ownership in addition to identifying the person who shared the document. In combination with other policy controls such access control, audit, and encryption they provide an effective mechanism to lock down and track documents’.”
