Fixmo and Mach 1 Development today announced a strategic partnership that will see the two companies integrate Mach 1’s DocuTRACER™ technology with the Fixmo SharePlace™ mobile DLP solution for Microsoft SharePoint. As a result of the partnership, the companies will offer the industry’s first government-grade mobility solution for SharePoint that will enable IT organizations to digitally sign, track and trace sensitive digital documents as they move around the enterprise network, and to proactively prevent them from being moved to smartphones and tablets, in addition to desktop and laptop computers.
As a growing number of iPads, iPhones and Android-based devices proliferate throughout Government and enterprise markets, so too has the complexity of tracking the audit trail of sensitive and classified documents as they move around the network and onto consumer-grade smartphones and tablets. Even more difficult has been the task of preventing those documents from being stored on a mobile device in the first place in a high assurance and auditable manner. Through the integrated solution offering, Fixmo and Mach 1 will now enable IT organizations to easily track and audit which sensitive documents have been stored on which mobile devices, and to proactively detect and remove specific documents through a sophisticated on-device security and policy enforcement engine.
“DocuTRACER is powerful solution that enables IT organizations to track the location, movement and chain-of-custody of sensitive documents as they move between devices, users and networks,” said Paul Greene, CEO of Mach 1. “In partnering with Fixmo, we will now offer our joint customers a complete solution for securing corporate documents on mobile devices and ensuring highly sensitive information is closely tracked and controlled. This is all about helping our customers protect themselves from both outsider and insider threats.”
