Intralinks Acquires Document Security Firm docTrackr
Among docTrackr’s technologies are its abilities to protect and track PDF, Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents, no matter where those documents are.Inter-enterprise content management and collaboration solutions specialist Intralinks Holdings announced the acquisition of docTrackr, a provider of document security solutions. The company said docTrackr’s technology would help enhance the digital rights management (DRM) capabilities of the existing Intralinks platform and products, providing stronger document support, richer auditing capabilities, better controls and a much simpler user experience that will make DRM protection seamless for users. Among docTrackr’s technologies are its abilities to protect and track PDF, Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents, no matter where those documents are stored, shared or used. In addition, docTrackr combines document analytics, audit trails of all document activities, dynamic policy management (so that document rights can be updated, even for downloaded files) and a plug-in free deployment to ease user adoption and reduce operational support requirements.
"With the acquisition of docTrackr and the availability of customer managed encryption keys, Intralinks becomes the de facto standard for collaboration and file sharing of valuable information where security, privacy and regulatory compliance are key concerns," Ron Hovsepian, CEO of Intralinks, said in a statement. "docTrackr’s unique technology requires no plug-ins or viewers, allowing organizations to expand significantly their use of DRM without compromising user experiences. With docTrackr’s technology integrated into the Intralinks platform, users have lifetime control over their data and always know how documents are being used and distributed."
