Introducing Kiteworks SafeEDIT: Revolutionizing Digital Rights Management (DRM) for Next-Generation Security

Legacy digital rights management (DRM) systems face significant challenges that have hindered their broader adoption and effectiveness in protecting digital content. One of the main issues is the restriction to view-only access, which severely limits user interaction with protected documents. Users are often unable to edit, navigate, or fully utilize the data within these documents, leading to a subpar experience. This is particularly problematic for dynamic content types such as Word, PowerPoint, and Excel, where editing and interactive features are essential. Additionally, the deployment of these legacy systems is complex and prone to security vulnerabilities, as they require the installation of heavy client software or plugins. This complexity, combined with the risk of data leakage due to temporary decryption on users’ devices, makes legacy DRM solutions less appealing.

Kiteworks introduces a next-generation DRM solution, SafeEDIT, which addresses the limitations of traditional DRM systems by allowing editable file access externally without relinquishing source control. Unlike legacy DRM, Kiteworks SafeEDIT streams an editable rendition of the source files, enabling remote collaboration and editing while keeping the original files securely protected within the owner’s environment. This innovative approach ensures that data never leaves the organization’s perimeter, maintaining the highest level of security control and tracking. Kiteworks SafeEDIT transforms the DRM experience by offering a native application experience for editing and collaborating on file streams, thereby facilitating seamless workflows and overcoming the barriers associated with traditional DRM solutions.

The benefits of Kiteworks SafeEDIT are profound, offering organizations a way to maintain control over their digital assets while enabling effective collaboration. By providing detailed audit logs and reports and allowing restrictive collaboration on any file type, Kiteworks SafeEDIT ensures comprehensive data protection and governance. The ability to collaborate on file streams like a native application without the risk of data leakage represents a significant advancement in DRM technology. Organizations can now enjoy the cyber risk reduction value of DRM without the legacy issues that have previously limited its adoption, making Kiteworks SafeEDIT a compelling solution for modern digital rights management needs.
