Rockville, MD (Vocus) October 21, 2010
FileTek announced today that its Trusted Edge® information classification and management software won the esteemed 2010 Document Manager Product of the Year award from Document Management (DM) magazine. The DM Awards, the only UK awards focused solely on the content and document management industry, honor outstanding products, suppliers, and projects each year. The 2010 winners in 24 categories were nominated and selected by Document Management readers and by a team of experts from across the industry, including independent bodies, consultants, and other specialists. Sias Ooosthuizen, FileTek Vice President of Solutions – EMEA, accepted the award at a black-tie dinner reception held on October 14, 2010, at the Tower Hotel in London.
Document Management magazine editor, Dave Tyler commented, “Every year I'm asked how the DM Awards ceremony has gone, and every year I am more delighted. It’s hard to believe that in just four years we’ve seen it grow from amateurish enthusiasm into this slick and hugely successful event. I'd like to thank our Project judges, who have lent an air of integrity and authority to the awards process, and of course all our readers, who continue to support the industry so wholeheartedly.”
Trusted Edge from FileTek is enabling software that extends enterprise policies to the growing volume of unmanaged content at the network’s edge – on desktops/laptops/file shares – where 80% of enterprise information is created and stored. No other information governance solution can consistently promote the same high rate of user adoption, provide similar classification flexibility, and classify/migrate legacy and new information off desktops and file shares in one easy step – all while delivering a measurable return on investment. By enforcing polices at content creation and using manual, automatic, role-based, and combined classification methods, Trusted Edge reduces litigation/compliance risk, enforces structure on all business information, and completes an organizations total asset management plan, thereby providing a holistic approach to records management.
Trusted Edge features include:
? Comprehensive classification strategies that can be tailored to specific project requirements
?Automatic tagging of content in real-time as migration occurs
? Full-service client agent that generates user-friendly classification dialogs and ensures accurate metadata branding
? Support for federated storage architectures and connectivity to industry-leading records/content management systems
? Intelligent scan engine for one-step classification/migration of new and legacy content from the network’s edge to the archive repository for long-term storage or permanent preservation
? A detailed metadata database that supports a forensic audit trail for content authentication and analytical reporting tools for records management/eDiscovery
? Interception, classification, capture, and filing on record creation, which is the documented best-practices approach
