Automate your document security with HotFolders version 3!

hot_folder-icon.gif
The popular automated document sealing tool from Martin Lambert, Oracle IRM inventor and founder, has just been updated with significant new functionality. Support for the Java sealing API that was recently shipped with the latest release of the Oracle IRM technology has been added. Previous versions of Hot Folders secured documents using the web services interfaces which required the document to be protected had to be transferred to the IRM server where it was sealed and then returned back to the Hot Folders application. With the Java API now available, the file can remain local to the Hot Folders environment leading to a significant improvement in performance. Initial testing shows the increase to be up to a factor of 100x!

You can download and even contribute to this great tool via the Hot Folders website at https://oracle-irm-hotfolders-java.samplecode.oracle.com/.
