Voltage SecureFile, powered by Voltage Identity-Based Encryption™ (Voltage IBE™), secures files no matter how or where they are transported after they leave the Lotus Quickr environment.

Voltage SecureFile for IBM Lotus Quickr offers several key benefits to customers that have deployed the IBM collaboration environment. Specifically, it enables businesses to secure information workflows, protect the integrity of their brand reputation, ensure customer confidence, mitigate potential risk involved in a data breach (by loss or theft), and meet compliance regulations.
Voltage SecureFile for IBM Lotus Quickr offers:

  • Encryption of files of any document type, at any location
  • Automatic file encryption based on policy or rules (pre-defined rules templates also provided) for individuals or groups (such as with no impact on end users
Business today is increasingly global, with documents needing to travel between partners, sales channels, supply chains, outsourcers and contractors. Having trusted channels to exchange sensitive files and documents is essential to ongoing business. Anything of a financial or medical nature should be protected, as should HR information, sales forecasts, product roadmaps, R&D and other intellectual property.

Launched in June 2007, Lotus Quickr is team collaboration software that helps organizations share content, collaborate and work faster online across teams of employees, partners, consultants and other designated users. Voltage SecureFile for IBM Lotus Quickr is the first information encryption solution that integrates with Lotus Quickr to enable persistent protection of files and documents wherever they go—within, across and even outside of an enterprise.

Voltage SecureFile for IBM Lotus Quickr arrives at an ideal time for existing and aspiring IBM customers. More than 80 percent of companies using Lotus Quickr are expressing a need to extend the encryption of documents beyond the shared document repository, according to a Voltage survey conducted in October 2007.

Voltage SecureFile, powered by Voltage IBE, provides information encryption to protect files and documents to individuals and groups regardless of whether those files are on the desktop, network share or inside a collaboration portal.

And it’s easy to use by both administrators and end users.
