With WikiLeaks Dominating the Headlines, Toshiba and Announce Their 2011 Plan to Provide an Ironclad Security Solution

For the last several weeks, news headlines have been dominated by the damage inflicted by WikiLeaks on the U.S. government and their relationships with organizations, countries and individuals. The exposure of government documents to the entire world has not only caused embarrassment, but may have compromised the national security of the United States.

The failure in document security that created the opportunity for WikiLeaks to expose this information is not rare or unprecedented. Serious data breaches from trusted employees either intentionally or unintentionally releasing sensitive documents are regularly reported in the news. The wide-spread occurrence of this type of threat is why companies of all sizes must have a strategy to guard against this type of data loss.

In the case of WikiLeaks, for instance, file-based security solutions could have prevented the loss of critical documents. File-based security incorporates high-level encryption that travels with a file and permits the owner of the document to control all access rights, preventing it from ever reaching the public domain.

Most organizations have made significant investments to protect their information from internal and external threats. However, as companies continue to look for possible security issues, the Multifunction Printer (MFP) is one area of risk that has come to the attention of network administrators.

Toshiba America Business Solutions (TABS) is strategically focused on document level security. With their partner — Korea’s leading Enterprise DRM (E-DRM) solution provider — Toshiba will launch DRM ONE for MFPs. By implementing’s E-DRM technology, companies can feel assured their information is protected by the best document security solution on the market. provides persistent security on scanned documents allowing companies to grant different permission by users and groups, and monitor document activities. This is the first of many steps TABS will take to ensure that, with the use of their products, customers have the best file-based security solution available.
