Intralinks and Premiership Rugby tackle document protection

Date: 08/20/2015

Intralinks® Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: IL), a leading provider of content collaboration solutions, today announces a relationship with Premiership Rugby.

Premiership Rugby represents the 12 professional rugby clubs in England which play in Aviva Premiership Rugby, the European Champions Cup and the European Challenge Cup. Premiership Rugby will use Intralinks VIA® to share its confidential information securely. Initially, the organisation will collaborate with central partners and prospects using Intralinks VIA, before deploying in other divisions of the business.

In using Intralinks VIA, Premiership Rugby is able to communicate with its network securely, allowing it to share confidential information, such as contract negotiations, presentations, guidelines, image banks and critical processes.

“We chose to work with Intralinks because it is renowned for its work in highly-regulated industries, where protecting data and valuable IP is critical,” said Paul Sherrell, Head of Partnerships at Premiership Rugby.

Sherrell continues: “It is extremely important that we secure our sensitive information. We take pride in working with best-of-breed partners and are delighted to start a relationship with Intralinks.”

Intralinks VIA is a robust, yet simple, enterprise collaboration solution that gives demanding professionals the freedom to exchange, and work on documents on any device - wherever they are. With Intralinks VIA you can sync, share and UNshare® files, work efficiently on group projects, and manage content wherever it goes, all with the knowledge that your documents remain secure. 

“2015 is a massive year for rugby in England. Aviva Premiership Rugby has seen tremendous growth on and off the pitch and its brand reputation relies on its ability to nurture commercial relationships,” said Dave Wareham, SVP EMEA, Intralinks. “Premiership Rugby understands the importance of using technologies, such as Information Rights Management (IRM), to protect its confidential assets, and recognises that consumer-grade solutions can easily compromise everything it has worked towards as an organisation. We’re proud that it has selected Intralinks to support its document collaboration needs.”
