Secure Collaboration vs. Digital Rights Management
Digital rights management (DRM) grew out of the need to address the explosive growth in piracy after the advent of the internet, especially in the film and music industries. Digitization leads to reduced costs of reproducing copyrighted materials, along with an increase in large-scale distribution of pirated digital assets.
As the world has become more decentralized, the variety of intellectual property and sensitive content needing to be shared online as exploded.
With this increase in collaborative needs, nearly everyone within an organization has a need to collaborate externally. With this, DRM has evolved into secure collaboration, which invokes a more modern and user-friendly approach. Secure collaboration tools put data and content controls into everyone’s hands, typically without the reliance on an organization’s IT team.
