Virtru’s encryption applies attribute-based access control (ABAC) tags to the data, giving you granular, persistent control of your information, everywhere it travels.
For federal agencies, it’s critical to ensure sensitive data doesn’t fall into the wrong hands, and that it is only accessed by those with a need to know. Because many organizations have numerous levels of access rights, and numerous distribution channels, data tagging and access management have become extremely complex.
Agencies need a more efficient way to balance security with visibility. Virtru equips federal teams to securely share data with colleagues and coalition partners by automating encryption and applying access controls from existing tools. The result is an environment where sensitive and classified data can be shared quickly and efficiently, with fewer bottlenecks and reduced risk — tying encryption and access controls to the data itself, everywhere it travels.
Imagine an environment where data can be self-protecting, self-directing, and centrally located: Instead of creating disparate environments with varying levels of security, federal agencies can instead leverage a Zero Trust strategy that applies access controls to the data itself.
This way, data can be stored and managed in a single place, under a unified framework, with access granted or denied based on the individual user’s credentials, location, and other designated parameters. Embraced by the intelligence community, including ODNI, Virtru’s Trusted Data Format is designed to facilitate this data-centric, Zero-Trust protection.
As users rely on tools like Titus or Boldon James to portion mark their documents, Virtru Secure File Collaboration turns those portion marks into ABAC tags for that portion of the document and enforces it by making the portion a TDF. This creates a seamless experience for both the document creator — who only has to apply portion marks in order to set access control — and the recipient, who is granted access only to the portion of the file that they are authorized to view (and is not denied access to the file itself).
