Preventing Intellectual Property Leakage
Intellectual Property (IP) is the lifeblood for every organization and as such, must be protected
against leakage. One common and occasionally overlooked channel is email. This page talks about
how Xeams can be used to prevent IP leakage.
In addition to IP leakage, companies need to ensure other sensitive data or information is protected, such
as personal identifiable information, vendor cost/pricing, employee/client health records, customer pricing,
contracts, financial data, etc.
IP leakage can potentially have long-term consequences on your business. Consider the following examples:
- Losing competitive edge by compromised patents, trademarks, copyright, trade secrets, etc.
- Regulatory fines
- Civil lawsuits
- Loss of business
