  • Publication number: 20200004974
    Abstract: Systems and methods for preventing leakage of protected data to unsecured applications and documents may include determining that a first document is a protected document in a managed application, detecting a request to copy protected data from the first document to a system clipboard accessible by unprotected documents, redirecting the protected data to a secure clipboard, determining that a second document is an unprotected document, detecting a request to paste the protected data into the second document, and refraining from pasting the protected data into the second document. The secure clipboard may be implemented by a data leakage prevention (DLP) client. It may be separate from the system clipboard and inaccessible by unprotected documents. Dynamic-link library injection and API hooking may allow the DLP client to intercept clipboard related function calls made by managed applications into the operating system and to transparently change the behavior of the managed application.

  • Publication number: 20190394353
    Abstract: In one or more embodiments, one or more systems, methods, and/or processes may redirect a request to open a document to a background process that controls access to the document; may determine policy information associated with the document and a user of an application; may provide the document to the application; may determine an area of a user interface of the application that displays information of the document; may determine watermark information based at least on the policy information; may generate one or more watermarks based at least on the watermark information; and may display the one or more watermarks, based at least on the watermark information, on the area of the user interface of the application that displays the information of the document.

  • Patent number: 10157287
    Abstract: A secure access client can be employed to enforce limitations on a user's access to a file while also allowing the user to access the file using an application of choice. To provide this functionality, the secure access client can implement an RDP client that is configured to create an RDP session with an RDP service executing on the same computing device. The RDP service can allow the secure access client to display the user interface of an application employed to open a file. The secure access client can be configured to selectively apply access limitations on a per file basis. This selective enforcement can be accomplished by only implementing a virtual channel extension to provide a particular type of access to the file when the file's access limitations would allow such access.

  • Patent number: 9734137
    Abstract: Systems and methods for secure third-party document editing are described. In some embodiments, a method may include tokenizing a file retrieved from a cloud storage provider (CSP); transmitting the tokenized file to a cloud editing provider (CEP); receiving a modified, tokenized file from the CEP; de-tokenizing the modified file; and enabling rendering of the de-tokenized, modified file. In other embodiments, a memory device may have program instructions stored thereon that, upon execution by a processor of an Information Handling System (IHS), cause the IHS to: provide a portal to a user executing a browser on a client device, wherein the portal includes an interface to a CSP and to a cloud editing provider (CDEP); and allow the user to access a document stored in the CSP and to edit the document using the CDEP via the browser.

  • Patent number: 9110963
    Abstract: Embodiments of methods, systems, and services for transparent adaptive file transform are described. In one embodiment a method for transparent adaptive file transform is performed by a data processing device. The method may include automatically detecting a data transfer addressed to an external data storage. The method may also include redirecting data associated with the data transfer to a data transformer. Additionally, the method may include applying one or more data transforms to the data associated with the data transfer to generate a transformed data set. In an embodiment, the method may also include transferring the transformed data set to the external data storage. In one embodiment, the external data storage is a cloud storage facility.
