Secure Data Exchange - The Leading Platform Built to Protect Your Intellectual Property

Secure Data Exchange with OpenDXM GlobalX

Secure Data Exchange with OpenDXM GlobalX

Information security is non-negotiable. Without it, sensitive data that belongs to you and your customers remain exposed to unauthorized users.  

Yet despite the vital importance of prioritizing data security, all too often data exchange happens on the path of least resistance—in an unsecured email account, via an unprotected file cloud, or over a vulnerable VPN. 

Factors like familiarity with a program and free or low-cost file transfer cannot be your chief reasons for choosing a data exchange platform. Leveraging the most robust encryption technology available gives you a better overall plan for sharing data among authorized users in the programs you already use—and keeping unauthorized users away.

Why Secure Data Exchange Matters

You know cybercriminals are out there, but let these numbers illustrate just how large of a threat they pose to you:

  • On average, the rate of hacker attacks online occurs every 39 seconds – University of Maryland
  • Data breaches for publicly-traded companies cost $116 million – Compliance Week
  • As the pandemic began and office work moved to the home, the FBI has reported a 300% increase in cybercrimes – IMC Grupo
  • 95% of cybersecurity breaches are due to human error – CYBINT

The startling numbers indicate a need for a data security platform capable of both enterprise data protection and consumer data protection.   Further, with the increasing number of remote workers, companies need stricter policies and protocols to protect against user error and exposed data in email, cloud storage drives, and other key methods of data exchange. 

And there’s yet another element to add into the mix: contractors, freelancers, vendors, and other business partners outside your organization. For example, in manufacturing, external partners may perform close to 80% of your development services. A workforce of multiple partners and global vendors requires automated and secure data exchange, even when files are large or subject to industry regulations.

How to Store and Share Sensitive and Valuable Data

Patents, trade secrets, CAD data—your intellectual property (IP) sets you apart in the market and is just as valuable, if not more so, than your organization’s physical assets. It follows then that safeguarding your IP and protecting it when this data is shared between users and operating systems is essential to your company’s success.

Similarly, your information systems may hold vast amounts of personal consumer information or protected client secrets that you are legally bound to keep private. Even a single breach of that data could ruin your company’s reputation with existing and prospective customers.

  • strong encryption
  • encryption keys
  • encryption key management
  • data level encryption
  • application encryption
  • authorized parties
  • transparent data encryption
  • compliant encryption
  • persistent encryption

In sum, you need a data exchange solution that offers the maximum security standards without moving away from the existing workflows you rely on for efficiency and oversight. That’s exactly what you can have with OpenDXM GlobalX.
