Intralinks Announces Latest Release Of Secure Enterprise Collaboration Solution Intralinks VIA

Includes expanded administrative capabilities

New York, N.Y., September 11, 2013 -- Intralinks® Holdings Inc. (NYSE: IL), a leading, global SaaS provider of inter-enterprise content management and collaboration solutions, today announced the latest release of Intralinks VIATM, its secure and scalable enterprise collaboration solution that helps organizations take lifetime control of their most important information and frees employees to reach new levels of productivity. The new release provides even greater visibility, governance and control over how an organization's information is shared, while providing an easy-to-use experience that encourages collaborative working.

This latest release brings expanded capabilities for Intralinks VIA administrators, allowing them to gain control and manage policies that guide how users and business groups share and use information, all while providing complete visibility into their Intralinks VIA environment. For example, administrators can mandate the level of security that users must apply to their collaboration projects or can prevent certain users from syncing content with their personal devices.

"Working within the highly regulated healthcare industry, we needed a solution that provides the best security and controls, but was still simple to use for our employees, partners and customers," said Simon A. Corman, director, Business Operations at IRB Services. "IRB Services independently approves, monitors and reviews biomedical and behavioral research involving humans and works with many of the largest pharmaceutical and research organizations. We needed a robust collaboration solution that protects the sensitive information we share with customers, and we knew we could trust Intralinks."

Some of the additional capabilities available with this latest release include:

Setting policies for sharing work streams: Enables administrators to limit a business group's ability to create specific types of work streams, providing a standard for security on documents. For example, administrators can disable business group users' ability to share documents with public work streams and require that users create work streams with digital rights management enabled by default, which helps avoid inadvertent data leakage issues.

Determining on which desktop devices users can access their Intralinks VIA Drive: Enables administrators to track the devices a business group member uses to log in and, depending on the type of device, either allows or disallows access. Also enables administrators to disallow devices that were previously allowed – for example, if someone loses a laptop.

Enabling Remote Wipe: Allows administrators to remotely wipe all content from all synchronized devices that are no longer trusted or that fall outside of their control. Significantly, this feature works whether the device is online or offline.

Defining work stream archive dates: Enables administrators to easily comply with corporate archiving policies and manage the complete lifecycle of files.

Creating enhanced reports: Enables administrators to generate granular audit and usage reports that provide a holistic view of the Intralinks VIA environment. This facilitates IT teams' efforts to comply with audit requirements and analyze business users' usage of the application.

Provisioning trial accounts for new users: Enables administrators to easily self-manage accounts and add users for free trials or paid accounts for members of their business groups without needing to go back to an account team for service.

Built upon a proven technology used by over 99% of the global Fortune 1000, Intralinks VIA goes beyond file sharing to ensure that productive work gets done and protects that work wherever it travels. Intralinks VIA can be trusted by busy professionals as they work across a network of increasingly complex external business communities, knowing that they can UNshareTM access to shared content at any time with the click of a button, even after it has been sent beyond the firewall.
