11/18/2005 - HitachiSoft and Microsoft have announced plans to cooperate in solutions development, sales and technical support for systems in the security realm. In the initial collaborative project, HitachiSoft has launched "Rights Core for HIBUN", a solution to protect confidential information developed with Microsoft(R) Windows Rights Management Services (RMS).
Microsoft has been providing Windows Rights Management Services (RMS), an information protection solution for the protection of important Web contents, documents and e-mails, and which enables protection of this information wherever it is sent. HitachiSoft has been developing solutions in the security field including "HIBUN", an information leakage protection solution.
"Rights Core for HIBUN" enables administrators to set up fixed security policies for Microsoft Office 2003 document output from a company's application system in order to protect against information leakage to third parties by design or by accident. Application systems will communicate easily with "Rights Core for HIBUN"by connecting through the API web service.
"Rights Core for HIBUN" Features
Through the collaboration, both HitachiSoft and Microsoft hope to strengthen their respective systems in sales, product development and support, develop more reliable infrastructure, and increase their presence in the security field, which is expected to expand when ISMS** is JIS standardized. In addition, HitachiSoft will participate in the "SecureIT Alliance", a community organization promoting joint operations with Microsoft as security partner. As a result, HitachiSoft security products will work more effectively with the Microsoft platform in future.
"Rights Core for HIBUN" is targeting 30 orders from mainly communications and finance companies in the first year, with eventual expansion into other industries.
