RSAC Fireside Chat: Seclore advances ‘EDRM’ by aligning granular controls onto sensitive data

By Byron V. Acohido

Digital rights management (DRM) has come a long way since Hollywood first recognized in the 1990s that it needed to rigorously protect digital music and movies.

By the mid-2000s a branch called enterprise digital rights management (EDRM) cropped up to similarly protect sensitive business information. Today, businesses amass vast  amounts of business-critical data – at a pace that’s quickening as GenAI takes hold.

At RSAC 2024 I sat down with Isaac Roybal, chief marketing officer at Seclore, to discuss how the challenge of securing business data has moved beyond even where the EDRM space has been evolving. For a drill down, please give the accompanying podcast a listen.

Seclore takes a data-centric approach to securing data by aligning granular controls with the sensitive data itself. This allows for security teams to dynamically manage permissions, rescind access, alter editing capabilities,  and even perform real-time compliance checks, he noted.

“We can ensure that only authorized users have access and can perform specific actions such as reading, editing, or printing,” he says.

Seclore facilitates data protection in a global productivity ecosystem that’s constantly shifting between on-premises, hybrid and cloud architectures. Its ability to integrate seamlessly with existing security tools and policies is a key differentiator, Roybal says.

By partnering with DLP, CASB, and classification vendors, Seclore ensures that organizations can leverage their current investments while enhancing their overall security posture.

“We’re not asking organizations to start from scratch,” he emphasized. “Our solutions integrate with the tools [users] already use, allowing for a more cohesive and effective security framework.”
