Access Management Software 8MAN now available in French Launch of french version reinforces company’s growth plans
Berlin, 24th July 2012: protected-networks.com GmbH, a leading provider of access rights management solutions, announced that its flagship software product 8MAN is now available in the french language. 8MAN is a smart, intuitive solution that supports clients’ needs to protect proprietary information, curtail data breaches and build a robust security system within the Microsoft Windows environment. The french version of 8MAN has been developed to meet the growing demand for security products in French-speaking countries and organisations, and further underpins the company’s commitment to expanding its global reach and investing in product localisation. With the new addition, 8MAN is now available in four languages: English, German, Russian and French. Given the positive response to the software’s Russian version launched last year, the company decided to further enhance its language portfolio, starting with French.
“Data security is a growing global concern regardless of industry or company size. Traditional access management tools can often be counterproductive – proving to be costly, time consuming and inaccurate. In the recent past, we have witnessed how data loss and theft can damage the very back-bone of an organisation. 8MAN, with its intuitive features can help the data owner find out: Who has access to which file, folder or directory? Who should or should not have the rights to read, edit or delete a certain file and folder? And so on.” commented Stephan Brack, CEO, protected-networks.
“We are committed to meeting the demands for product localisation. We work closely with our partners and clients to understand their challenges. Language is certainly one of the critical factors, especially in the European market. In the coming months, we plan to add additional languages to further enhance our reach,” he added.
French speaking companies can now benefit from several unique features of 8MAN, including: - Create users and groups - Assign and revoke fileserver and directory access rights - Assign temporary access rights - Manage Active Directory group memberships - Empower Data Owners or business groups
“Currently we have an encouraging pipeline of clients in France and Belgium. We are aggressively looking for new partners in the region and are in discussion with some of the leading ones to further strengthen our network and distribution model. The availability of 8MAN in French will certainly help us in reaching out to a wider group of prospects,” commented Steven Bennett, Head of Channel EMEA.

I’m dating myself, but I remember when holiday shopping involved pouring through ads in the Sunday paper, placing actual phone calls from tethered land lines to research product stock and availability, and actually driving places to pick things up. Now, holiday shoppers can do all of that from a smartphone or tablet in a few seconds, but there are some security pitfalls to be aware of.
