Engineers, architects, and manufacturers using Pinion's software can create and share files in the SolidWorks eDrawings(R) format while maintaining continuous control over how the information is used by recipients inside and outside the corporate firewall. SolidWorks users can implement time-based access to files, impose an automatic shred date to self destruct files, and prevent recipients from using Cut, Copy, Paste, and Print functions or screen grabber tools. Pinion's unique "auto shred" feature is a key competitive differentiator not found in Adobe PDF security options.
"The engineering data created using SolidWorks 3D manufacturing design software is often among a company's most valuable intellectual property," says Joyce Durst, president and CEO of Pinion Software. "When this information is shared without continuous protection as part of design collaboration, outsourced manufacturing, or other technical business processes, it becomes subject to unintended or illegitimate use that could have significant consequences to your business."
Pinion Software provides a full array of File Security products for the needs and budget of any client...from the top-of-the-line Secure Enterprise(TM) for large corporations to Pinion Desktop Packager, an email/attachment protection solution designed for small to medium size businesses. Pinion Software sets global standards for safeguarding proprietary engineering information that is being shared via email, CD, corporate intranet, business portals, or document management systems. When digital data is marked "Pintected," CAD users instantly recognize their designs have tamper-proof protection.
"SolidWorks is 100% focused on mechanical design, providing software and services that help manufacturers get new products to market faster," says Brian Houle, manager, Solution Partner Program at SolidWorks Corporation. "Pinion Software's security solutions give engineers complete control over their intellectual property. Engineers can extend their network of prospective partners and accelerate real-time response to market opportunities with total confidence that their design data is protected 24 x 7 with Pinion security technology."
What is TRM?
Pinion Software's first-to-market Technical Rights Management (TRM) technology allows users of CAD and other technical applications to produce and share files in their native format, while continuously safeguarding the digital information during its entire lifecycle -- from concept to design collaboration to final part production. Manufacturers can now protect their CAD designs, specifications, and engineering documentation, as well as complex spreadsheets, sales projections, company financials, business plans and strategies, and much more. This comprehensive scope of data protection propels Pinion Software to the forefront of the TRM industry.
