AirZip Takes a Dedicated Approach to DRM
FileSecure's client-based approach makes it possible to encrypt and protect almost any file or content type without worrying whether it integrates with an editing application.For any company considering a digital rights management solution, one of the biggest questions is: Will it work with the content-creation applications that the company uses? Most products are tied to Microsoft Corp.s Office or Adobe Systems Inc.s Acrobat. If an organization uses something else, finding a DRM solution gets a lot more difficult.

To get around this limitation, AirZip Inc. uses a dedicated Windows client application in its FileSecure 2.01 platform, which shipped last month. The result: intuitive applications that enabled us in tests to manage rights and policies for content access and distribution, protect content in a drag-and-drop authoring client, and read protected content in a simple reader application.
