WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwire - June 12, 2007) - Liquid Machines®, Inc., the leader in Enterprise Rights Management (ERM) solutions, today announced that it will be co-sponsoring the Pro-Tec Data IP Summit Forum entitled "Demystifying Trade Secret Protection Strategies" on June 13, 2007 in Santa Clara, California. Liquid Machines' Vice President of Product Management and Marketing, Ed Gaudet, and other security industry panellists will discuss strategies for protecting intellectual property (IP) and critical data in today's workplace.

"Intellectual property protection has become a very hot topic amongst security practitioners," says Gaudet. "In such a radically competitive business society, no company is immune to the damage that can result from industrial espionage."
