FileOpen Solutions for Regulatory Compliance

As your organization moves toward 100% paperless document distribution, can you be sure you are in compliance with industry, federal and international regulations?  Regulations such as HIPAA and HITECH in the healthcare industries require that organizations ensure the privacy of patients and customers’ personal information. In the financial industry, Sarbanes-Oxley, GLBA, and EU regulations call for the protection of personal financial information.


FileOpen's document encryption and rights management solutions have been used by leaders in highly regulated industries for over a decade to achieve compliance and protect their customers' privacy. From allowing only the intended recipient of a document to view and print it, to applying access controls such as expiration and watermarking, FileOpen's document security solutions can ensure compliance across the whole organization.




A large investment management company had just completed their annual audit and risk assessment for security and compliance. Although the company had strong firewall security in place, the audit revealed that in order to comply with privacy regulations, they needed to broaden their security efforts to documents sent digitally to their customers.  


The company sought a solution that met three main requirements: the ability to support multiple devices, deliver documents via email and Web, and maintain compliance with Sarbanes Oxley and Gramm-Leach-Bliley. 


After careful review of several DRM and VDR technologies, the company chose FileOpen Developer Toolkit. As a result, they were able to implement enterprise-wide document-level security and compliance, significantly reducing their risk of legal exposure and privacy infringement in the process.
