MUMBAI, India -- October 16, 2013

Seclore, a leader in providing security, privacy and compliance solutions,
announces the successful deployment of its flagship Information Rights
Management (IRM) technology - Seclore FileSecure - for HDFC Life, one of
India's leading private life insurance companies.

HDFC Life was looking for an empowering and integration-friendly security
solution to prevent unauthorised use of customer data. Security, privacy and
compliance in the context of outsourcing cannot be managed by legal contracts
alone; the responsibility lies with the enterprise who owns the customers’
data as well as its own intellectual property.

Seclore FileSecure protects an enterprise’s unstructured information, such as
documents and email, by defining usage rights that persist irrespective of
location or mode of transfer. These rights – which can be remote controlled –
control who can access information, for what purpose, when and from where.
This makes Seclore FileSecure an end-to-end information security solution in
compliance with regulatory frameworks such as ISO and mandates from IRDA on
security and privacy.

Commenting on the deployment of the technology, HDFC Life’s CISO, Mr. Sharad
Sadadekar, said, “In the world of blurring organizational boundaries and
dependence on business providers to process business information, it is
imperative for an organisation to ensure that their customer data is safe.
Addressing this issue, Seclore FileSecure provided a comprehensive solution to
all the information security needs. The software is engineered in a way that
it focuses on the ‘solution’ to deliver business value and not only the

“It is a matter of pride for us to partner with HDFC Life in their information
rights management initiative. HDFC Life chose Seclore FileSecure as the one of
the most prominent technologies that can safeguard the customer information.
By providing information-centric security, Seclore FileSecure enables
enterprises to operate in the emerging world of BYOD and Cloud,” said Vishal
Gupta, CEO, Seclore.

HDFC Life thoroughly evaluated many technologies as well as technology
combinations before choosing Seclore FileSecure.
