Today McAfee announced the availability of a new joint offering with Adobe called the McAfee Data Protection Suite for Rights Management. This joint solution combines the classification capabilities from McAfee’s Host Data Loss Prevention (DLP) product with persistent protection from LiveCycle Rights Management ES. The joint value proposition allows customers to discover and classify sensitive information on laptops or desktops and automatically and proactively protect it from a single, uniform policy. This will significantly reduce the cost, complexity, and risk associated with sensitive IP and compliance information located on endpoints throughout the enterprise.
This is the result of a global alliance partnership between Adobe and McAfee, previously announced September 28, 2009 aimed at offering more comprehensive security to our Enterprise customers.
Learn more about the new offering available now from McAfee here. Please contact your local McAfee or Adobe sales representative for more in depth information or to schedule a demo of the solution.
Announced last week, and built using Adobe LiveCycle ES, Adobe Security Partner 4Point’s QuickStart e-invoicing solution is designed to offer customers a faster path to cost reduction and improved customer satisfaction by providing an out-of-the-box approach to implementing secure electronic invoicing and eliminating paper.
4Point’s solution leverages LiveCycle ES to provide a way for customers to quickly stand-up an e-invoicing solution with a limited scope that can generate a quick ROI and later serve as a foundation for a broader enterprise-wide capability.

We’ve discussed the legal validity of electronic signatures and digital signatures in this blog in the past. While a concurrence of laws worldwide point to general acceptance of electronic signatures as legally binding, there are a number of nuances that need to be taken into account when dealing with the identity and evidentiary elements of those electronic signatures, especially as it relates to how they’ll stand up longer term in court.
