It’s long been something of a dream to be able to communicate effectively by message and then have that message no longer be accessible after a certain amount of time. The usefulness is beyond question, it’s an incredibly safe and secure way to communicate with those you need to, without having to worry about your confidentiality being compromised by someone else accessing the message at a later date.
The idea is simple really, you just define the time period you want to have the document accessible for and then you’re good to go – once that time period has elapsed the document is completely closed off.
Sounds perfect right? But is it even possible?
You may be familiar with such a thing from way back when in Mission Impossible, but let’s be honest here – having to use exploding cassettes is a bit too inconvenient and impractical for modern businesses to achieve data security. Fortunately for you there is a better way!
You can render a document completely inaccessible after a time period of your choosing has elapsed and you don’t need secret service gadgets and gizmos to do it! All you need is IRM!
IRM stands for Information Rights Management and it is a truly incredible technology that is allowing businesses all over the world to truly harness its power to vastly improve their data security. The process of protecting a document with IRM couldn’t be more simple and intuitive; ease of use is one of IRM’s many incredible benefits and is what makes it the gold standard of data security enhancement services. All you would need to do is to protect your chosen document with IRM, then establish your desired timescale.
Once that time has elapsed, your document will be rendered completely inaccessible!
This is an incredibly useful feature that can be utilised across a wide variety of sectors and businesses, allowing you to communicate delicate and important information without the worry that said information could be liable to compromise.
Say for example you need to share a document containing certain customers’ payment details with a third party for the purposes of a project you are working on together. With IRM you could program in the proposed timescale of the project to allow the third party to access this document for that duration with ease and efficiency.
When however the project has come to an end, the document would be rendered inaccessible to them – meaning that you keep complete control over who gets to access your confidential documents as well as when!
Please find below a video in which we have taken the concepts here and applied them to a real world scenario to further explain just how incredible the proposed benefits to you really are!
