In today’s mobile environment, data-centric security must be added to the fabric of an agency’s cybersecurity protocol. The Adobe Category Management Data Centric Security Offering delivers a datacentric security solution allowing federal agencies to flex with the operations tempo, address immediate security concerns and even predict future threats.

The Adobe Electronic Signature offering (Adobe Sign) allows government agencies to transform paper processes, making digital workflows a reality with trusted and legal e-signatures. Adobe Sign supports the government initiatives (OMB Circular A-130, Government Paperwork Elimination Act [GPEA] and the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act [E-SIGN]) to move towards an ‘electronic government’ and will also help cut costs and improve productivity.

Carahsoft and Adobe’s Category Management Offering allow the Government to:

  • Protect high-value assets and sensitive information
  • Provide a Digital Rights Management (DRM) capability to enable data level protection
  • Help prevent unauthorized review, redistribution and modification of sensitive government information
  • Sign documents digitally anytime and from anywhere
