Delegating control over policy definition and usage with “Policy Sets”

One question that often comes up with customers is “how can my large, distributed organization effectively delegate and manage access control?” Our answer is “policy sets”, a feature introduced in LiveCycle Rights Management ES.

The “Policy Sets” feature allows administrators to delegate who can create and manage shared
policies. It also permits organizations to control which policies each individual or workgroup can use. Allowing decentralized management enables customers to more effectively ensure their intellectual property is protected.


This short video goes through the functionality in more depth

Adobe @ RSA

The RSA Conference is one of the most highly respected information security conferences and exhibitions in the industry.  This year, the Conference runs from April 7-11 in San Francisco, California, at the Moscone Convention Center.  Anyone who’s anyone in the information security space, specifically companies and individuals involved in authentication, identity management, encryption, and cryptography, will be there.  Attendees (over 17,000 expected) represent every key vertical market and range from C-level executives to front line IT staff.  Heck, even Al Gore is making an appearance (no really…he’s one of the keynotes at the event!).

Adobe will be exhibiting at Booth 828 and demonstrating our LiveCycle ES and Acrobat products, highlighting their electronic signature and rights management capabilities.  If you are planning on attending, please come by and say hello!  Learn about the latest updates to our product and feature line-up, as well as our integration with a wide variety of partners, many of whom will also be exhibiting at the event (see below).  We’ll be happy to answer any questions you have. 

The extended Security Solutions team, including product managers, engineering, and sales engineers will be on hand during RSA, not only manning the demo stations at the booth, but also roving the floor, and speaking at the conference itself.  For example, John Landwehr, director of Security Solutions and Strategy at Adobe, will be speaking on Thursday, April 10 at 8:00 AM on a panel (DEPL-301) with Deloitte & Touche covering the topic of Information Classification and its critical application to the questions of security policy, data leakage and rights management in the enterprise.

If your company is interested in a partnering relationship with Adobe, please visit the booth and ask for John Harris, who manages our security alliances.

We look forward to meeting you in San Francisco next week!  Our Security Partner Community will also be exhibiting at RSA…be sure to visit them and ask how they work hand-in-hand with Adobe:
