To secure and protect information assets, Dharampal Satyapal Group (DS Group), manufacturer of pan masala (Rajnigandha), adopted Oracle Content Management.
The organization opted for Oracle over vendors like Microsoft, Adobe, and EMC because of its advanced capabilities such as interoperability with different applications and also its ability to seal and protect any type of electronic document.
DS comprises of more than 2000 employees, 3 manufacturing units in Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, North East; 16 depots; 35 consignee sales agents and 1800 authorized dealers. This involves exchange of confidential data between DS and external vendors. The Oracle Information Rights Management (IRM), a component of Oracle Content Management, will help the company to secure, track, and protect sensitive and classified documents containing intellectual property, business proposals and proprietary communications between its employee base and extended business network.
Santosh Singh, GM (IT) of DS Group said, "With the group on an expansion mode, our directors and managers increasingly transmit sensitive documents among branches and departments. That's why we require a software solution which is user-friendly, secure and capable of helping us to track sensitive information irrespective of where it is stored and how it is used."
The solution will allow authorized users to add and securely exchange information via Internet. It will also allow prevent unauthorized saving and printing of documents. Oracle IRM software will manage and secure data both on the server side and at the end user device point. Every copy of the information - be it on the desktop, laptop, mobile wireless device, inside or outside the firewall - will be encrypted.
According to Harshal Pendse, director (Technology Initiatives) of Oracle India, the growing importance of the subsidiaries within the group, it was essential for DS to maintain a robust and secure data management system.
Oracle IRM protects all types of documents - from MS Office files to images to PDF files. It includes features such as expiry, print, and copy protection. These help to assure nobody other than the users access and work on these documents. It also allows tracing of any unauthorized user who tries to access these documents.
