Rights protected and encrypted spreadsheets now supported within ComplyXL

ComplyXL now supports Rights Protected and Encrypted files in line with corporate spreadsheet management policies

Microsoft has granted a license to Lyquidity which allows for the control of encrypted and rights protected (IRM) spreadsheets so organizations that have tightened their security management are now able to continuously control and monitor all spreadsheets using ComplyXL. Security aware organizations will be able to ensure full control and management, as well as analysis of all spreadsheets and their usage patterns as well as defined segregation of roles, version and change control.

Increased use of IRM for additional security

Organizations using IRM can specify access permissions to workbooks not just simple password protection. Using IRM organizations can prevent sensitive information from being printed, forwarded, or copied by unauthorized people. Once permission has been restricted using IRM the access and usage restrictions are enforced no matter where the information is, as permission to a file is stored in the document file itself which helps organizations enforce corporate guidelines governing the control and dissemination of information.

Although IRM protected documents are encrypted, no passwords are required because they are encrypted using a certificate based key issued by Active Directory, which provided login control to Windows domains. As a result, only authorized users are able to access the files.
