PKWARE has partnered with Fidelis Security Systems, the leader in next generation data leakage prevention (DLP) solutions, and released a new joint content-aware encryption solution that combines DLP and enterprise encryption. The new solution helps organizations safeguard valuable digital assets and address increasing regulatory compliance requirements for the protection of sensitive information.
The new content-aware encryption solution lets enterprise security and risk professionals set up centralized policy management controls for automatic detection and encryption of sensitive information contained in email messages and email attachments, without negatively impacting end-user usability. It ensures that corporate policies for the encryption of sensitive emails and attached files are enforced as information flows in and out of the corporate network.

PKWARE, recently acquired by an investment group led by Novacap, a leading Canadian private equity firm, announced that V. Miller Newton has been named President and Chief Executive Officer.
“PKWARE is an amazing company with proven data management and security solutions, a marquee customer base, and a great team,” said Newton, President and Chief Executive Officer for PKWARE. “I am excited to accelerate PKWARE’s efforts to help our customers address their critical concerns regarding compliance regulations, audit requirements, protection of sensitive information, and reducing overall operation costs.”
Sharing sensitive data internally within an extended enterprise is a challenge in itself. Exchanging information with business partners outside of an organization’s network presents a new set of security concerns.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) realized the security risk involved with exchanging critical medical data and patient records with hundreds of non-government endpoints, including research labs, universities, and private health care providers. CMS needed a solution that would allow it to easily extend its security policies and best practices to an unlimited number of partners, protecting its personally identifiable information (PII) wherever it went, regardless of the computing platform.
