The demo server has recently been retired after many years of faithful service. Please contact your local Oracle representative if you would like a demo, or see the demos on the Oracle IRM YouTube channel.
The following is a very simple set of instructions to demonstrate how easy it is to use Oracle IRM. Below are three sealed documents that have been protected using Oracle IRM. Before you can play with them, you need to create an account and download/install the Oracle IRM Desktop.
If you want to learn more and use our evaluation service to protect your own documents and look at the technology in more detail, please contact us.
Oracle IRM has a wide list of supported formats, from Office documents, to PDF, XML, TXT CAD and even images. Protecting images can be very useful, say for instance you have high resolution, copyrighted JPEGs and you wish to control their distribution and use. Or maybe you want to protect a GIF file that contained confidential information about your network infrastructure, like the example below?
Or what if your marketing department needed to securely share a PNG image depicting the next latest and greatest device your company is creating? Loss of such information has been reported several times for companies like Nokia.
This demonstrates how Oracle IRM can simply protect JPEG, GIF and PNG images. Try taking a screenshot of any of the above, or attempt to gain a copy of the native image. We also have the ability to protect images dynamically. So if you had an application that generated images on the fly, such as graphs containing confidential information, the Oracle IRM technology can protect those documents on the fly!
Oracle IRM protects and tracks your sensitive information no matter where it goes. It combines business friendly encryption with role based usage rights and auditing.
