NextLabs Announces Global Reseller Agreement with Siemens

NextLabs Enterprise Digital Rights Management (EDRM) solution protects Siemens’ Teamcenter data on the move

San Mateo, Calif. – September 17, 2018 – NextLabs®, Inc., a Siemens Solution Partner and leading provider of data-centric security software for large enterprises, today announced that Siemens will resell NextLabs Enterprise Digital Rights Management (EDRM) for the Teamcenter® portfolio. The solution applies data protection to all file types of Teamcenter product lifecycle management (PLM) software so organizations can share their critical information internally and externally with the proper level of security.

Intellectual property, such as R&D data, CAD/CAM designs, trade secrets, and strategic business plans are a company’s most important assets. Given that today’s business often requires organizations to share sensitive information with partners and suppliers located all over the globe, proper security controls have to be in place to prevent unauthorized sharing of sensitive data.

NextLabs EDRM for Teamcenter applies digital rights protection that follows content no matter where it goes. Organizations can share their critical information internally, in the cloud, and throughout the extended enterprise – with the appropriate level of security controls.

NextLabs EDRM for Teamcenter is integrated natively with the program to ensure that data extracted or taken out of Teamcenter is continually protected. The product provides built-in integration with the Teamcenter business object model and transactions to make data protection transparent to the end user. It is also integrated with the Teamcenter file management service, applying digital rights policies to files coming in as well those already stored in the Teamcenter repository. As a result, this policy-based approach becomes an integral part of the business process, protecting the data no matter where it goes – whether on-premises or in the cloud.

NextLabs EDRM protects a wide range of file formats, including those of Teamcenter, Microsoft Office applications, 2D/3D CAD, PDF, HTML, image files, archives, source code, rich media, and more. File classification and rights protection can be initiated either manually or automatically based on rules or events. Policies are enforced in real-time to determine whether access should be granted upon request. Ease of use and accessibility via rich clients, mobile apps, or web browsers highlight the solution’s ability to scale globally.

“We strive to protect data regardless of where the data is stored, used, originated from, or sent to,” said Keng Lim, CEO & founder of NextLabs. “NextLabs EDRM for Teamcenter is designed to simplify information security and allow users to focus on innovation and what they do best. We have designed our products to be natively integrated with Siemens PLM Software’s Teamcenter portfolio to offer the best user experience. Security should be transparent to the end user.”

“Customers use Teamcenter software to manage some of their most important product data assets. We know that protecting customer IP is critical for data in store and in motion.  To give our customers more choices in how they keep their data safe, we partnered with NextLabs, a leading provider of digital rights management solutions, which is bringing tremendous value to our customers,” said Rohit Tangri, Vice President, Product Management, Marketing, and Business Development for Teamcenter at Siemens PLM Software.
