Adobe, McAfee to combine DRM and data-loss prevention

Upcoming product aims to help companies better manage and protect important data

Adobe Systems and McAfee will jointly develop a product that combines digital rights management capabilities with technology designed to prevent data from leaking outside corporate networks, the companies said Monday.

The partnership combines Adobe’s expertise in digital rights management with McAfee’s data-loss prevention technology in a bid to give customers the ability to restrict access to documents based on how the documents are classified. That can help companies better protect information such as intellectual property and regulatory compliance data, the companies said in a statement.

McAfee and Adobe did not provide details of the new product, but plan to disclose more at McAfee’s Focus 09 security conference , which will be held in Las Vegas next month.
