CoVia and Alchemedia Partner to Extend Secure Display Solutions Throughout The Enterprise

Apr 17, 2001, 01:00 ET from Alchemedia Technologies, Inc.

    SAN FRANCISCO and MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 17 /PRNewswire/ --
 CoVia Technologies -- the leading enabler of collaborative, multi-tiered
 business relationships throughout the value chain -- today announced a
 strategic partnership with Alchemedia, the leading provider of software to
 prevent the theft of proprietary information online. The integration of
 Alchemedia's Clever Content(TM) technology into CoVia's InfoPortal platform
 will make it possible for companies to implement simple, secure, role-based
 access and authorization to their knowledge management systems, by adding
 powerful protection of proprietary information throughout the enterprise.
     While billions are spent annually to prevent access to sensitive data,
 Clever Content protects data inside a company, where access has already been
 granted and is, according to Information Security Magazine, where the greatest
 threat to corporate intellectual property assets exists. Alchemedia's
 information security software effectively eliminates the theft of information
 inside the firewall, protecting companies against the loss of valued
 information that could otherwise be easily duplicated and transported,
 physically or electronically.
     The addition of Alchemedia technology to CoVia's business network
 applications enables protection of images, text and PDF content as determined
 by access controls built into InfoPortal's knowledge management system.
 Clever Content information can be viewed on the screen by InfoPortal users but
 cannot be manipulated in any way, such as printing, saving, copying, email
 forwarding or by "screen capture." This Secure Display(TM) solution
 effectively delivers full access to content and business intelligence without
 compromising the security and safety of the corporation's most valuable
 assets.
     "Partnering with CoVia means expanding our customers' ability to safely
 and easily move their most sensitive information throughout their
 organizations," said Buddy Wilson, Alchemedia's Senior Vice President of
 Business Development. "By protecting sensitive content with Clever Content,
 business processes are liberated from many of the constraints previously
 required for safely sharing intellectual property within an insecure
 environment."
     "Collaboration is based on the sharing of information, but you can't share
 critical information unless you can protect it," said Boyd Pearce, CoVia's
 Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. "Billions are spent every year to prevent
 unauthorized access to critical enterprise data, and our integration with
 Alchemedia will safeguard companies against the intentional or inadvertent
 removal of information by authorized users -- regardless of where that
 information is distributed in the enterprise."
