Liquid Machines Gateway for SharePoint

Liquid Machines took the wraps off its enterprise rights management gateway for Microsoft SharePoint, to protect business information inside and outside of SharePoint.

“The Gateway for SharePoint is tightly integrated with Microsoft Windows Rights Management Services (RMS) and Microsoft Office SharePoint Services (MOSS) to persistently protect files opened or downloaded from SharePoint. The Liquid Machines Gateway for SharePoint supports existing business processes and workflows by extending persistent information protection to a broader range of document and file types, and enabling advanced rights-managed workflows.

Documents removed from SharePoint are automatically protected by the Gateway for SharePoint with an RMS policy that includes the proper permissions for all authorized library or list users. Authorized users, even when working outside of the network, can collaborate on protected documents without first returning to the library. Different users can have different usage rights based on their SharePoint permissions. If an unauthorized user obtains a copy, they are prevented from opening it. When the document is saved back to SharePoint, the Gateway decrypts the file to maintain indexing and search capabilities within SharePoint.”
