GigaTrust Launches Its GigaCloud Solution for Secured Content Collaboration

GigaTrust, a global provider of email security and document protection solutions, has announced the launch of its cloud based service offering, GigaCloud. This new service offering provides secured content protection, consumption and collaboration for any user of a PC, tablet or smart phone, even users of Microsoft Office 365.

GigaCloud would offer a rich set of document security features designed to facilitate secure collaboration between internal and external users in an enterprise or SMB. GigaTrust’s GigaCloud solution is available as a multi-tenant service or in a private cloud configuration targeting enterprises requiring added security features and administrative control.

The GigaCloud solution applies and enforces security permissions (or ‘rights’) down to the digital content (documents, emails, pictures) level. This would result in content being protected from misuse while in transit, at rest and most importantly ‘in use’ even when opened by any permitted recipient. This protection persists for the content’s entire lifecycle.
