SolidWorks is the leading supplier of 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) software that helps product designers and manufacturers to get quality consumer, medical, and machinery products to market faster at a lower cost. SolidWorks sales and partner network includes thousands of employees and partners worldwide, all of whom depend on proprietary business information such as customer lists, sales qualification data, and Value Added Reseller documentation. While access to this information is invaluable to SolidWorks' direct and indirect sales teams worldwide, it is proprietary and sensitive in nature. In order to assure the security of this information, SolidWorks has chosen Liquid Machines Document Control software.
Liquid Machines Document Control software allows SolidWorks to create policies that control and protect who can read, edit, save, and print its sensitive sales and partner operations data, including presentations, spreadsheets, and partner documentation. Protection remains with a document or excerpted portions of the document for its entire life -- no matter where it is sent or stored (i.e. on a laptop, CD-ROM, file share, or USB Flash Drive) -- to ensure that only users approved by SolidWorks can access and work with the information. Liquid Machines advanced auditing and logging features give SolidWorks the ability to monitor and audit document access and usage, including failed actions, in support of corporate compliance and reporting initiatives.
"Customer data and sales operations information is some of the most valuable and sensitive data in our entire organization," said John McEleney, Chief Executive Officer at SolidWorks. "The control and protection Liquid Machines gives us over this information enables us to provide employees and partners the autonomy and freedom they need to do their jobs without having to worry about a potential data leak."
"The protection of SolidWorks' proprietary sales operations data is a perfect example of the value and peace of mind we offer our customers," said Mike Ruffolo, Chief Executive Officer at Liquid Machines. "Today's enterprises must lock down data without disrupting the business. We put information control back in the hands of our customers, giving them the confidence to drive their business forward."
