RSD GLASS 3 addresses the biggest challenges companies face when managing content proliferation across all types of repositories.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 23, 2012
“Content is everywhere: desktops, laptops, shared drives, Microsoft environments, in the cloud, repositories of structured content, and the list goes on,” said Tamir Sigal, Vice President of Marketing at RSD. “Companies need to know what content they have and what has value and should be kept. We have clearly seen organizations struggle to achieve enterprise information governance objectives and had the foresight to deliver a proven solution. RSD GLASS is a patent-pending information governance platform that allows organizations to manage and control content across repositories and jurisdictions, wherever it resides. We are especially proud to announce a new version of our solution; RSD GLASS 3 addresses the biggest challenges companies face when managing content proliferation across all types of repositories with a particular focus on content in the “wild” such as shared drives and email stores.”
RSD GLASS is used to manage global corporate information governance programs for electronic and physical records. Using RSD GLASS, companies create corporate policies that are jurisdiction-aware. These policies are then actively enforced across organizational and jurisdictional boundaries, IT systems, content repositories, and paper archives. RSD GLASS 3 covers a wide range of enhancements and new features such as:
- Governance of content in shared drives – RSD GLASS enables organizations to proactively manage the chaos within shared drives. In response to universal customer demand, RSD GLASS 3 includes full integration with Nuix, the leading engine for searching and managing unstructured data. The combined package helps organizations regain control of shared drives by discovering and managing valuable information assets under the same policies that govern all content within the organization.
- Updated and new governance connectors – RSD GLASS supports in-place governance of content for all major repositories, allowing companies to provide a centralized policy engine with enforcement in-place across all digital and paper records. Organizations keep content wherever it resides, avoiding costly and risky migrations. The RSD GLASS connectors (over 40) provide extensive in-place governance functionality (as opposed to access only) covering major content repositories, including Microsoft SharePoint, EMC Documentum, IBM FileNet, Hitachi HCP, Alfresco, Open Text LiveLink, Oracle Stellent, Box.com, and many others. Organizations are also able to build their own connectors using RSD’s open software development kit (SDK).
- Customer-driven usability enhancements – RSD GLASS 3 provides new and updated executive dashboards and higher performance. Other enhanced features include favorites, sorting, error messages and filtering.
Additionally, RSD GLASS 3 provides the capability to subscribe to providers of laws and regulations and associate that input with the policies. Users create “what-if” scenarios to optimize retention schedules.
The integration of RSD GLASS 3 with Nuix provides critical capabilities for reining in content on shared drives. “We are thrilled to announce our partnership with RSD. With RSD and Nuix, companies can discover what content they have, analyze, review and cleanse that content, and then govern it,” commented Gareth Meatyard, Nuix’s Director of Information Governance Solutions. “They can do this either in-place or in a trusted repository ensuring compliance with policies, business requirements, and regulations.”
”We are very excited by our partnership with Nuix and the new capabilities provided by RSD GLASS 3,” continued Sigal. “Using RSD GLASS, customers are able to systematically enforce the governance rules across all their corporate information, regardless of where it is stored.”
