NextLabs Information Risk Management software suite has been deployed by large corporations, defense and government agencies to control access, protect data, and assure safe collaboration of technical data across global supply chain. NextLabs brings more than 6 years of experience in helping global manufacturing, financial services, and A&D companies implementing sustainable information-centric security and risk management solutions to segregate data, comply with export control regulations and enforce intellectual property rights.

"Our customers need to collaborate safely and securely, both internally and externally with supply chain partners, forcing security to shift its focus from the perimeter to the data itself. To achieve this, the adoption of standards that work across applications and enterprises is critical. We have invested heavily in standards and look forward to working with TSCP members to drive adoption," said Keng Lim, Founder and CEO of NextLabs. NextLabs is a contributing member of the Oasis XACML and the OpenLiberty OpenAz industry standards.

As security threats to critical assets around the world increase and become more sophisticated, the need for a common, robust approach to ensure proper protection of information escalates. Meeting this need is the core mission of TSCP -- the aerospace and defense (A&D) consortium dedicated to identifying, prioritizing, developing and testing requirements for all aspects of information-sharing -- from identity management, secure e-mail, information labeling and handling to document sharing with identity federation.

"We are pleased to welcome NextLabs to TSCP," said Philippe Laflandre, TSCP chairman. "We strongly believe that with all parties working together toward a common goal, we can reduce the risk of information security breaches, accelerate secure information sharing across A&D organizations, and reduce overall program costs."

TSCP members include global government and defense agencies, leading A&D companies, and solutions providers. For more information about TSCP, contact JP Calderon at jp.calderon@tscp.org.
