NextPage Introduces NextPage Enforce™, Enabling Policy Application Across All Storage Mediums

Enterprises Can Now Take Action on All Enterprise Information Regardless of Location

DRAPER, UT--(Marketwire - November 11, 2008) - NextPage, a leader in information risk management and compliance, today announced their policy engine, NextPage Enforce, which enables enterprises to enforce policy on enterprise information. NextPage Enforce™ is a layer of the NextPage Information Tracking Platform. NextPage Enforce enables enterprises to demonstrate that they are applying consistent document retention and disposition policies, decreasing cost of eDiscovery and reducing the risk of information.

With NextPage Enforce, administrators can define policies to detect documents that fit custom conditions, notify users of impending events, and execute actions on documents. Policies can range from silent and mandatory to interactive and optional. In addition to reducing end-user burden to a level that makes policy compliance practical, the NextPage Digital Thread™ makes it possible to know about every version of every document and its location such that when an action needs to take place on a document -- move, copy, delete, notification -- NextPage Enforce can execute it.

"Taking the appropriate action on documents in the enterprise is the only real way to address the cost of eDiscovery and information risk," said Darren Lee, President and CEO of NextPage. "Our technology provides the badly needed bridge between the controlled environment of central storage repository and the ad hoc environment in which users create, share, edit and store enterprise information. NextPage is becoming the standard to appropriately enforce policy across the enterprise."

The NextPage product suite addresses information risk by enforcing policies on documents everywhere in an organization. To accomplish this, it begins tracking documents and their classifications from the moment they are created -- and continues tracking them throughout their complete lifecycles.

In virtually every organization, documents originate in many different ways and then morph and proliferate throughout the organization. They typically migrate through users' hard drives, email inboxes, network drives, removable drives, and document repositories such as Microsoft® SharePoint®. Unlike conventional centralized repositories, NextPage tracks relationships between copies and versions of these documents throughout this process of scattering and gathering. As a result, it can pervasively apply highly targeted, rule-based actions to documents no matter where they're located.

Enterprises can combine these actions into policies that perfectly match their specific needs for improving compliance and reducing risk. NextPage applications, NextPage Control (announced today in a separate release), sit on top of the NextPage Platform which includes NextPage Enforce and the Information Tracking Platform.
