Organizations need a simple, foolproof way to protect their critical data – wherever it goes, in whatever content form it’s in, and whatever device it’s consumed on. That is exactly what Content Raven does.
Marlborough, MA (PRWEB) April 23, 2012
Content Raven, a content security company that helps enterprises achieve greater control over their intellectual property as it is being shared externally, today unveiled its flagship product, a cloud-based content control and analytics solution that empowers users to easily control content delivery, track usage, and analyze content consumption. Content Raven is the first enterprise-level content control solution able to support multiple devices, including mobile, and protect any type of content format, including video, audio, Office documents, Adobe, HTML, and other rich media.
Unlike collaboration tools, Content Raven focuses on content distribution, control, and analytics. With Content Raven, organizations can keep their content anywhere they want – in public or private clouds, in collaboration tools, etc. – and still fully protect it with controlled delivery, tracking capabilities, and consumption analysis via a secure system. Patent-pending encryption technology simultaneously maintains rich media performance while ensuring a high level of security. As content is shared, Content Raven provides actionable analytics that enable companies to understand how the content is used, including the device it is viewed on, the geographic location of viewers, the frequency of views, duration of each view, and more.
The Content Raven solution is simple to use, since there is no software installation required by the recipient to view content, and the content itself never exists on the user’s device. Senders can quickly and easily withdraw access, publish updates and changes, and effectively control sharing. Content Raven allows enterprises to reduce the risk of data exposure by protecting against unauthorized sharing and controlling access to intellectual property and other sensitive company content.
Leading independent research firm Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) conducted a laboratory evaluation of the Content Raven solution and validated its ability to dramatically limit the loss, theft, and misuse of information. Highlights of the ESG evaluation report include:
-- Content Raven allows the content owner total control of its intellectual property, even while sharing it: “Content access was controlled per user, ensuring that only the right users had access to assigned files.” In addition, permissions are given per user, allowing the content owner to dictate how and where a user views the content, for how long and whether they print, share or save it.
-- Content Raven enables easy user adoption by creating a seamless experience: “Creating and publishing content was quick and easy, eliminating a significant barrier to user adoption.” ESG also notes, “Consuming content through a web browser was very intuitive and required no training to accomplish.”
-- Content Raven is secure: “Content was encrypted end-to-end and undecipherable without logging into the service online or using the required access keys in offline mode.”
-- Content Raven provides actionable analytics: “Actionable analytics were collected about file usage that allowed administrators to adjust permissions and access as needed.”
“In today’s business environment, it is becoming increasingly difficult to control the illegal proliferation of content, which can put company assets and revenues at risk,” said Steve Duplessie, founder and senior analyst at the Enterprise Strategy Group. “Organizations need a simple, foolproof way to protect their critical data – wherever it goes, in whatever content form it’s in, and whatever device it’s consumed on. That is exactly what Content Raven does. It enables companies to share their information, whether they are emailing it directly or using collaboration tools such as Box or Dropbox, without incurring any of the associated risks or loss of control."
“The way companies share content today is risky,” said Vasu Ram, president and CTO of Content Raven. “Content owners have no control of a file’s trajectory once it leaves their internal organization, leaving it vulnerable to tampering and piracy, and the company at risk of substantial intellectual property loss. Content Raven is the first solution to put a stop to that. We effectively enable organizations to maintain authority and ownership of their critical intellectual property – no matter what content type it is – while still sharing it with external partners, customers, manufacturers and suppliers.”
