Protecting images with Oracle IRM
By Simon Thorpe on Aug 29, 2008
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!
