Federated or multi-organization DRM is, of course, one of the Holy Grails of Enterprise Rights Management. Now GigaTrust has announced a federated DRM service for those who have implemented Microsoft's RMS. Snippets:
GigaTrust announced a federated solution for authenticating and connecting users who need to exchange rights-protected content. By connecting to the GigaTrust federated network, enterprise RMS customers can exchange RMS protected content with people outside their enterprise network without the hassle of setting up multiple trust relationships or providing helpdesk support for external users.
“Both new and existing RMS customers want to exchange protected content with trusted business partners and customers outside their network,” according to Tom Ebert, Vice President of Sales at GigaTrust. “The GigaTrust federated solution enables customers to connect to a trusted network of RMS users without complex integration or user management.”
