SECUDE Announces Partnership With Synergy Advisors to Boost Growth of New Data Security Technology

Strategic Move Positions Synergy Advisors as an Authorized Reseller of SecureDocument

ALPHARETTA, GA--(Marketwired - May 9, 2013) - SECUDE, an innovative data security provider, today announced a new strategic partnership with Synergy Advisors, a Microsoft Certified Partner and a global leader in the area of Information Rights Management (IRM) with offices in North, Central and South America as well as Europe. Synergy Advisors brings a team of experts that have extensive and worldwide experience implementing solutions based on core Microsoft technologies, including Microsoft AD RMS.

With signing the new agreement, Synergy Advisors becomes an authorized global reseller of SECUDE's SecureDocument, a revolutionary information protection software that raises security of data downloaded from SAP. SecureDocument uses Microsoft AD RMS to automatically apply IRM protection to data leaving the safe boundaries of the SAP landscape. The companies are committed to working cooperatively in the areas of implementation, customer support, marketing, and sales to provide an outstanding customer experience.

"We are very pleased to announce this partnership, which syndicates SECUDE's innovative solutions and technologies with Synergy Advisors' unprecedented expertise in the field of Information Rights Management," said Michael Kummer, President of SECUDE Americas. "SECUDE gives businesses around the world the ability to take security of their most critical corporate information to the next level. Information is a powerful business asset, and we are seeing an increased demand for data security solutions that go beyond the traditional security perimeter. Today's businesses are struggling with the traditional perimeter and its boundaries, which don't provide them with what they need most -- mobility, cloud security and flexible collaboration. To address these needs, we have created a solution that does all of the above and more."

SecureDocument is SECUDE's information protection solution for SAP data-on-the-move and data-in-use that safeguards an often-overlooked white spot that may leave some of the most critical information vulnerable. Generally, information stored within SAP is considered secure; however, once downloaded, critical information, such as financial figures, HR data, and customer and sales information, is vulnerable and exposed -- especially when residing on users' computers and mobile devices, shared via e-mail, or carried around on USB sticks, without any protection at all.

Layered on top of the existing infrastructures, SecureDocument uses Microsoft Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) to automatically apply Information Rights Management (IRM) protection to data downloaded from SAP. By utilizing Microsoft AD RMS, an information security technology that safeguards sensitive data from unauthorized access, SecureDocument provides continuous protection to data coming out of SAP. Now, files of any type or extension, along with the business-critical information they contain, are securely protected no matter where they reside -- inside the SAP landscape, on an employee tablet, in an email sent to a business partner, or on a USB stick. With this solution, businesses can increase security and mobility of their most confidential business information, all while enhancing collaboration among business users and third parties.

"At Synergy Advisors, our mission is to secure sensitive information for enterprise customers, and adding the ability to automatically protect data from SAP systems helps us safeguard customer information, which is the lifeblood of an organization. We are very excited to partner with SECUDE, as they can provide our customers with a robust SAP security solution that fully integrates into their existing Information Protection strategies," said Cristian Mora, Synergy Advisors Worldwide Services Director.
