HERNDON, Va., March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- GigaTrust, the market leader in ERM content protection software solutions that enhance and extend Microsoft's Rights Management Services (RMS), today announced it has entered into a partnership agreement with Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division and a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services. GigaTrust joins the Siemens Solution Partner Program as a Software and Technology Partner to provide manufacturing clients within the Siemens PLM Software user community with Enterprise Rights Management Services, a fully transparent security system for their intellectual property.
Under the terms of the agreement GigaTrust will extend Microsoft's RMS to certain Siemens PLM Software applications, enabling organizations to implement increased content security beyond the enterprise, after the content has been delivered and while it's being used. This partnership, in which GigaTrust Enterprise Rights Management technologies will be made to interface directly with specific Siemens PLM Software applications, will result in a line of security solutions available to customers starting in the second quarter of 2009.
"Protecting manufacturing companies' intellectual property is critical to their existence and growth while providing vital competitive differentiation for future innovations," said Rich Ramsey, vice president, Partner and Components Marketing, Siemens PLM Software. "Our partnership with GigaTrust creates a rights management protection solution -- available to many of our clients -- with the depth and breadth to address these serious issues."
Built exclusively on Microsoft's Windows RMS, GigaTrust's ERM solution is a set of client and server software that enables an organization to persistently secure important content while at rest, in transit or in-use in the native application. With GigaTrust, individual authors, as well as PLM systems, have the ability to further increase protection of assets beyond the enterprise. Security can be implemented after the critical data has been delivered, opened and used on a global basis for the lifetime of the content.
"GigaTrust is pleased to partner with Siemens PLM Software to provide persistent content security to their manufacturing customers," said Darryl Worsham, vice president of Business Development at GigaTrust. "Through this partnership, customers can maintain complete control over their valuable information regardless of location or user."
