Many companies struggle with balancing their needs to collaborate efficiently and at the same time, protect technical data under the ITAR requirements. The NextLabs solution allows them to meet export compliance requirements, protect their intellectual property, and enable safe supply chain collaboration at the same time
San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) March 3, 2009
NextLabs®, Inc., (http://www.nextlabs.com) the leading provider of policy-driven information risk management software for Global 5000 enterprises today announced an update to its Export Control for Technical Data (ITAR, EAR) (http://www.nextlabs.com/html/?q=export-control-technical-data), a comprehensive compliance solution that ensures Technical Data subject to the International Trafficking in Arms Regulation (ITAR) and Export Administration Regulations (EAR) are handled according to regulatory requirements without impeding collaborative business processes.
Traditionally, companies have needed to implement and manage multiple independent technical controls of physical networks in order to provide the data protections required by the ITAR and EAR regulations according to their deemed export rules. These measures imposed a significant burden to global and collaborative companies that rely on free exchange of information to gain efficiencies and strategic advantage. With this latest release of Export Control for Technical Data, companies can now have a dynamic solution that can detect and protect controlled data within a safe and secure collaboration environment. Export Control for Technical Data solution provides a library of best practice policies, reports, and enforcers to address:
Technical Data Classification and Content Analysis: Automated and user-assisted data classification, based on powerful content analysis and file tagging capabilities, to ensure that export controlled technical data is properly labeled from the time of creation.
Fine-Grained and Attribute-Based Access Control: Access control based on user citizenship, location, computer, application and compliance training status to prevent deemed export without proper licensing or technical assistance agreement.
File Storage and Sharing: Limit data duplication, storage, and sharing over email and IM to certified servers, portals, or systems to prevent accidental granting of access to foreign persons and administrators.
Data Mobility and Remote Access: Track or prevent downloading of export controlled technical data to notebooks and mobile devices that may travel outside the United States in addition to limit access of technical data from remote locations.
External Collaboration and Data Transfer: Automatically, label and protect (encrypt) data delivered to, or received from supply chain partners or customers.
Licensed Export: Automatically track and assign authorized export of technical data against the appropriate license or technical assistance agreement (TAA).
Product Contamination: Detect and prevent re-use of controlled technical data within mixed use or commercial products.
The NextLabs Export Control for Technical Data compliance solution has been recognized by SC Magazine in the prestigious SC Awards as a Finalist in the Best Regulatory Compliance solution category.
