Why FileOpen for Legal Documents
FileOpen’s approach of controlling access at the document level is well-suited to the legal use case, as it enables legal staff to explicitly grant specific users with access to certain documents, inside or outside the firm. FileOpen DRM supports review and annotations of secured documents and provides an audit trail of document usage and printing for monitoring and forensic purposes.
FileOpen's software can be installed inside the firewall and integrated with Active Directory or other LDAP systems to allocate access according to a firm's policies, and can also be installed on public-facing servers to manage access to files distributed to outside parties. PDF and MSOffice file formats are supported in their native applications, allowing editing, annotation, tracking of changes, redlines and other application features.
