Brainloop awarded 'Best Deployment Scenario' in the Document Protection category Boston, June 20, 2011 - Brainloop (www.brainloop.com), a leading supplier of software solutions for high-security collaboration on confidential documents, today announced that it won the '2011 Best Deployment Scenario Award' from Info Security Products Guide in the Document Protection category for its work with Deutsche Postbank Group, one of Germany's largest financial services providers with EUR 237 billion in assets.
The Brainloop application provides secure online collaboration inside or outside of the enterprise, automating security and compliance to give users the peace of mind to focus entirely on their business goals. Deutsche Postbank selected Brainloop to protect documents while collaborating with outside agencies working on quarterly and annual reports.
Postbank's investor relations department needed a solution that would enable the bank to work with external agencies four times per year to prepare quarterly and annual reports in German and English. About 50 project participants work on tight deadlines to collate corporate data, which is edited for clarity and must not fall into the wrong hands before publication.
Postbank realized that by using Brainloop, the bank could now meet compliance regulations that stipulate how confidential information should be handled. In summary, the bank found itself with a highly secure collaboration platform for communicating with external agencies.
"User acceptance of the solution was very high right from the outset," said Lars Stoy, head of investor relations and research at Postbank. "The solution's ease of use is a big advantage, especially as we only work with it at the end of each quarter. And the audit trail of all permissions and communications ensures that we handle confidential data in accordance with the relevant compliance requirements."
"The honor of this award really belongs to our customers," said Brainloop CEO Peter Weger. "We know that people want to focus on their company's success, so we make it easy for business users to follow the rules without having to get bogged down in processes. Using Brainloop, they can rest assured that their most confidential documents are being securely managed under their control, yet doing it automatically in accordance with their company's confidentiality policies. Protection is applied throughout the document's lifecycle, even when it has been downloaded to a local device."
