Protect Corporate Use of Social Media and Cloud Services With
Scrambls for Enterprise
Encrypt Postings and Shared Files to Ensure Privacy and Compliance
LEE, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/04/12 -- Scrambls for Enterprise
launched today giving organizations a means for their employees to
safely collaborate over social media sites like Twitter(R) and
Facebook, and share files with cloud services like Dropbox(TM) and
Salesforce.com(R). Scrambls protects data that is often overlooked in
corporate security initiatives -- information shared online via
social media, files stored in the cloud and data in motion.
Employees are free to leverage existing social media infrastructures
to enter status updates, Tweets, blog posts, files and more, without
jeopardizing security or privacy. Scrambls for Enterprise encrypts
data before it ever leaves a user's computer or smartphone. Posts and
files can only be viewed by those the enterprise grants permission to
-- everyone else sees scrambled text.
"Social media and cloud services are expanding the way business is
done, but enterprises need greater control of the information they
share across the public web," commented Steven Sprague, scrambls
co-creator and CEO of Wave Systems. "These services are often
self-discovered by employees who use them to share critical
information. Enterprises need to take responsibility for this new
flow of data, and scrambls provides the privacy, security and audit
controls similar to what you'd see with corporate email accounts."
The power of scrambls lies in the permissions granted to group
members. To read a post or descramble a file, the service
automatically applies the permission to make it readable again for
only those individuals granted access. Business administrators set
the policy and manage the groups. Add or remove people from the
groups at any time to change who can read messages and files, even
after they've been published on the web.
"Scrambls can open up new business opportunities with use cases for
every type of vertical market," continued Sprague. "In healthcare, a
private and protected channel for communication leads to better care
and service. It's easy for doctors, social workers and caregivers to
have sensitive discussions about the care of a family member in real
time using popular tools like Twitter or Facebook. Those
conversations remain private with scrambls."
Deploying scrambls in the Enterprise
The scrambls enterprise console
gives employees, managers and IT staff the ability to manage
accounts. You first create groups for access either by email
addresses or through the existing corporate lists that enterprises
already use (Active Directory, corporate email domains, etc.). Add
more detailed rules as needed, like an expiration date for a file, or
a password that can be used to view a blog post. Deploy the client
install or have users download it, and they're ready to scramble.
It's as simple as that!
Scrambls privacy and security can be added to an organization's
internal applications as well through a software developer kit. The
SDK enables third-party apps and sites to integrate directly with
scrambls to leverage the same groups for security, privacy and
