Nitro Announces Microsoft RMS Integration with Nitro Pro

Nitro Pro with RMS Introduces User-Based File Security for Businesses

SAN FRANCISCO—June 3, 2014Nitro, a leading provider of document productivity and collaboration solutions, today announced it has integrated Nitro Pro with Microsoft Rights Management service (RMS) to provide enhanced document security for user-permission workflows. Demonstrating the company’s continued commitment to document security, Nitro Pro with RMS enables users to protect and exchange digital documents with colleagues, customers, and partners.

“Nitro Pro is now the easiest option for organizations to extend RMS protection to documents,” said Sam Chandler, Founder and CEO of Nitro. “Protecting sensitive information is a top priority for our customers, and their feedback was the catalyst for developing this integrated functionality with Microsoft. As one of the only document companies to integrate with Microsoft RMS, Nitro differentiates itself in the market by enabling file protection from anywhere at anytime.”

Microsoft RMS enables the flow of protected data of important file types – including PDF and all Microsoft Office formats – and lets these documents be used by all important people in a user’s collaboration circle. The Nitro Pro with RMS integration brings this functionality to Nitro’s flagship desktop product to help businesses respond to the challenges of keeping sensitive documents secure both inside and outside of the organization, from sharing documents with multiple collaborators to accessing documents from the desktop.

“We’re thrilled that Nitro released their newest integration in their flagship desktop product, Nitro Pro, with Microsoft’s Rights Management support. Nitro Pro with RMS provides maximum document security to user-permission workflows that hadn’t been previously addressed. By putting the power to protect sensitive information in the hands of the end-user, PDF files and documents can be secured whether shared internally or with outside collaborators by requiring identity verification before file access is granted,” says Dan Plastina, Group Program Manager for Microsoft Rights Management.

Key features of Nitro Pro with RMS include the following:

  • PDF File Encryption - The Microsoft RMS integration encrypts PDF files so that only those who have permission are granted access. Each user identity is verified to ensure documents can only be accessed and modified by authorized personnel within the internal network or beyond the corporate firewall.
  • SharePoint compatibility - Nitro Pro with RMS can consume protected PDF documents generated by SharePoint Secure Libraries.
  • RMS Ecosystem Support - Nitro Pro with RMS allows users to open and use files that other people have protected using RMS-supported applications.

“From the desktop to the cloud, documents and how we share them can have a significant impact on an organization’s success. With the ease that information is distributed today, it's all too easy to lose control of sensitive documents after they have been sent out. Whether a user accidentally forwards an email or a user has malicious intent, the end result is that sensitive information ends up in unintended hands," said Mimi Hoang, VP Product at Nitro. “Giving users the peace of mind and control over who can access the document no matter where it goes, we’ve integrated Microsoft Rights Management Services into Nitro Pro making it easy for customers to comfortably share digital documents as was intended between employees and third parties."

The Nitro Pro RMS integration builds on Nitro Pro’s robust security features, including passwords and permissions, certificate security based on public and private key security, and 256-bit encryption for sharing and tracking PDF documents. Nitro’s newest functionality is available in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Dutch, Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, Portuguese, Swedish and Russian.

The Nitro Pro with RMS integration will be demonstrated in a webinar on June 17th titled Next Level Document Security: Protect Your Files from Prying Eyes with User-Based Access, featuring Orin Thomas, contributing editor at Windows IT Pro and Windows Security MVP, Microsoft’s Gagan Gulati, Lead Program Manager, and Nitro Product Manager Wilson Phan.
