IntraLinks Sees Growing Global Use of Unique File Protection Feature

Comprehensive Tool Secures Files Both Inside and Outside the Firewall

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - September 16, 2009) - IntraLinks®, the leading provider of critical information exchange solutions, is seeing businesses worldwide quickly adopt Document Locking & Protection, IntraLinks' comprehensive tool to securely share most commonly used business files including Microsoft Office™ word documents, spreadsheets and presentations. The newly expanded feature augments IntraLinks' current locking capabilities, making it the only software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform to secure both native Office files and PDF formats.

"Data protection, especially anti-leakage, is the most important consideration for regulated and proprietary data," reports Gartner, a global information technology research and advisory company. "High-trust SaaS providers... need to provide sophisticated and comprehensive levels of security technology."*

More than 3,000 organizations worldwide have been protecting their files with IntraLinks' Document Locking & Protection since early 2009, allowing nearly 15,000 users to securely and easily access almost 50,000 protected Microsoft documents.

"Usability and security are no longer at odds. IntraLinks' Document Locking & Protection uniquely and automatically controls all types of files so that professionals can focus on being productive instead of potential security breaches," said Fahim Siddiqui, executive vice president of product development and operations for IntraLinks. "Businesses can be confident they are protected against information exposure because IntraLinks enables them to control file access even after documents are distributed and downloaded."
