Microsoft Windows RMS enables granular access control over sensitive data

This article that I wrote for the Midmarket Security Strategies and Tactics site at TechTarget focuses on the file access control possibilities of Windows Rights Management Services. Traditional NTFS file and folder permissions are effective for preventing unauthorized users from accessing data, but provide no control over what authorized users can do with the data once they access it. With Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008 you can enable Windows Rights Managements Services (RMS) and be able to exercise control after files have been accessed and downloaded and even revoke access if necessary. You can learn more about Windows RMS and how you can use it to control and protect your data by reading Microsoft Windows RMS Enables Granular Access Control Over Sensitive Data.
