EMC has unveiled a security strategy and a new security assessment service.

The information management and storage giant, which is trying to raise the profile of its security-enhanced products and services, also announced new digital rights management software, following its acquisition of Authentica in February.
The information security strategy implements a combination of systems, software and services from EMC and its partners.

It is aimed at securing information throughout its lifecycle and is designed to help users assess the security of their information, secure the information infrastructure, directly protect sensitive information and manage security events.

EMC’s new Assessment Service for Storage Security is based on NSA-IAM, the information assurance methodology used by the US National Security Agency.

As part of the service, EMC technology solutions staff will analyse users’ storage platforms, networks, management systems, access controls, applications and other elements of the IT infrastructure to uncover potential security risks and propose remedies.
The new Documentum Digital Rights Management software uses Authentica technology to extend EMC’s Documentum enterprise content management platform. It allows users to dynamically control access to and use of unstructured data and content.
