RJS Taps Partner to Build Document Security into WebDocs
June 25, 2013 Alex Woodie
Document management software vendor RJS Software Systems is teaming up with security software developer Global Velocity to build data loss prevention (DLP) technology into the IBM i and Windows versions of RJS’ WebDocs.
Global Velocity builds and sells a DLP solution, called rapidDLP, which helps protect data by detecting and blocking unauthorized attempts to access data or documents. The St. Louis, Missouri, company starts by indexing all of the content under protection. Then it uses proprietary pattern-matching algorithms to detect whenever that content is moved across the network.
The offering, which deploys as a Wintel- or Lintel-based appliance, works well on fast networks, has a low latency rate, and can be used in cloud configurations, the company says. Global Velocity claims to have a very low false-positive rate and a false-negative rate of zero. That is, legitimate access will sometimes be flagged as a policy violation, but real unauthorized access attempts will never slip through undetected, according to the company.
RJS of Burnsville, Minnesota, plans to integrate the rapidDLP solutions to create a “virtual vault” for documents stored with its WebDocs solutions. RJS says rapidDLP can work with the Windows and IBM i versions of WebDocs, and can be used with new or existing WebDocs installations.
“This added layer of security is a key feature that customers have been looking for,” RJS general manager Mike Bergstrom says in an announcement. “Giving users the ability to stop malicious or accidental data leakage not only protects their most valuable digital assets, it also assists them in maintaining their compliance, audit, and security obligations.”
WebDocs is a Web-based document management system that allows users to capture, store, manage, and route all kinds of electronic documents, including IBM i spool files, invoices, work orders, faxes, reports, scanned documents, and even non-structured data like video and audio files.
RJS sells three versions of WebDocs for IBM i, including the On-Premise Edition, the Enterprise Hosted Edition, and an Express Cloud Edition. The Express Cloud Edition starts at $40 per user per month, supports up to 10 users, and can store up to 15 GB of data.
