Introducing Intralinks Connect™ for Enterprises: Control and Compliance for Inter-enterprise Collaboration

Date: 03/01/2012

Intralinks bolsters ability for IT to maintain full control and management of content while enabling partner and team collaboration beyond the firewall

Intralinks Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: IL), a leading provider of critical information exchange solutions, today announced the launch of Intralinks Connect for the enterprise. 

Intralinks Connect™ is an enterprise-grade platform that enables any employee, within or outside an organization, to share content and collaborate with businesses partners beyond the firewall while ensuring adherence to corporate control, security and compliance requirements.

As a recognized leader in team collaboration and virtual data rooms, Intralinks has enabled the exchange and control of information in areas such as strategic transactions and life sciences. With the introduction of Intralinks Connect for enterprises, Intralinks now extends its leading control, security, compliance, and auditing capabilities to every employee within an organization. In addition, Intralinks Connect subscription based pricing allows for easy adoption by the entire enterprise.

“Intralinks Connect ensures that we can deliver and receive documents in an environment that is more secure than e-mail and traditional mail,” said Kathy Rowley, senior vice president, Legal and Tax of e-Rewards. “Following a successful trial period, we added Intralinks in December 2011. We have used the Intralinks platform to track, send, and manage proprietary and confidential information such as financial documents, tax audit response documents, and our corporate annual insurance renewal documents.”

Intralinks Connect also offers full visibility and control of content. Using integrated rights management, fine-grained permissions, and a comprehensive audit trail, Intralinks Connect allows enterprises to share highly sensitive information without ever giving up visibility or control over the content. 

“Increasingly, collaboration is about connecting people, systems, and information to enable work,” says Michael Fauscette, group vice president, Software Business Solutions for IDC. “In this new world, employees feel empowered to go out and use whatever tool it takes to get their job done. While these employees are trying to do the right thing, they are using tools that are not sanctioned by IT and may carry increased security or IP risks. Intralinks Connect is part of a new generation of tools that are focused on building people-centric, collaborative environments across enterprises, and yet at the same time provide security, control, and IP protection.” 

In addition, Intralinks Connect provides a platform to extend the company’s current infrastructure investments securely beyond the firewall. For example, Intralinks Connect integrates with Microsoft SharePoint® to allow for secure sharing of content stored on SharePoint® with outside partners and customers. 

“For the past 15 years, companies have trusted Intralinks for their most critical business transactions,” said Fahim Siddiqui, chief product officer for Intralinks. “Now, Intralinks empowers the IT organization to extend their enterprise level control, security, and compliance to every business user within an organization as they conduct business beyond their firewall.”

With Intralinks Connect, Intralinks has combined its market leading collaboration platform with enterprise integration connectors, mobile access, and a subscription based pricing model that make it easy for enterprises to adopt.
