Bank of India (BOI) has signed an agreement with Microsoft to deploy Microsoft Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS).
Under the project called BOI Info-Guard, BOI will extend Microsoft AD RMS, an information protection technology, to about 15000 users in the next phase of deployment from the present 100 users.
Microsoft AD RMS helps safeguard corporate digital information and enables secure banking operations.
The Microsoft technology enables Bank of India to meet RBI Data Security Guidelines. The bank will ensure that its confidential and sensitive corporate information does not leak through unauthorized channels, with this deployment.
“Completeness, Compatibility and Productivity gains were the key drivers for Bank of India to select Microsoft AD RMS. By being in-line with the RBI data security guidelines, it ensures safety and security of corporate data. It demonstrated deep and seamless integration into Microsoft Office solutions thereby, protecting information, which in turn boosts productivity while helping meet compliance,” said Sameer Ratolikar, CISO & Head BCP, Bank of India.
Microsoft claims that AD RMS prevents sensitive information from intentional or accidental breaches. It has the capability to extend Rights protected information to be accessed on other platforms and with partners from anywhere over the internet.
“AD RMS system enables organizations to safeguard sensitive information, persistent protection with flexible and customizable technology. Rights can be configured to allow a user to open, modify, print, or take other actions with the rights-managed information. It also allows safeguarding data when it is distributed outside the network. This solution helps protect corporate identities, credentials and information protection,” said Srikanth Karnakota, director, Server and Cloud Business, MicrosoftIndia.
