Ricoh Showcases Rights Managed Document Scanning

Today at the RSA Conference 2007, Ricoh is showcasing their rights managed document scanning solution. Thwarting unauthorized access to confidential documents processed through Ricoh Aficio multifunction products, the solution combines Ricoh ScanRouter EX Professional software with Adobe LiveCycle Policy Server software to deliver a secured paper-to-digital document solution.

Ricoh and Adobe are offering users the ability to manage risk at the point-of-capture. Paper documents are scanned at the Ricoh MFP where the security policy is applied. To ensure the information remains safe, the security policy remains with the document through its lifetime, whether it is transferred inside or outside the corporate firewall.

Further benefits of the Ricoh-Adobe integrated solution are gained from the availability of the Adobe PDF Scan Library, which operates in conjunction with the LiveCycle Policy Server. Paired with Ricoh’s ScanRouter EX Professional solution, the Adobe PDF Scan Library enables Ricoh’s ScanRouter to generate searchable, more secure and compact PDF files from scanned paper documents. In essence, this integration of Adobe technologies with Ricoh solutions will allow users to create and manage intelligent documents with enterprise applications and various business processes.
