Intellectual Property

Confidentiality of Proprietary Information

For innovative companies, the ability to maintain the confidentiality of intellectual property (IP) and trade secrets is strategic to competitive advantages in the market. The challenge is to keep IP and trade secrets secured while also fostering the creativity that led to the development of those advantages in the first place. This is core to the challenge of securing IP – securing it while not inhibiting the abilities of those that create it.

Collaboration technologies allow engineering and design teams to work more efficiently but they do not provide adequate security features to defend against advanced threats to proprietary information. Organisations need to seriously consider and address these threats to the confidentiality of their high value intellectual property as this type of information is an appealing target for the most sophisticated attackers.
