3 ways to control information security with the Document Control Suite

The Perceptive Content Document Control Suite eliminates one of the biggest barriers to business productivity — the continued growth of unsecured, untracked, unmanaged and redundant documents.

Hyland’s Perceptive Content Document Control Suite allows users across your organization to create, edit and maintain documents using any desktop application.

You can then initiate and track document control from Perceptive Content or directly within Microsoft Office and other applications that support web services.

The solution incorporates version control, library services and digital signatures — a combination of capabilities that promotes single-source collaboration, enhances efficiency and protects document integrity.

At any point in a business process, users can check out the latest version of a document, check in a new version, review a history of revisions, digitally sign the document and more.

The Document Control Suite is built on the enterprise content management foundation of Perceptive Content.

This means it integrates seamlessly with other solution features like user security, annotations, advanced searching, auditing, projects, tasks, e-forms, worksheets, workflow and retention management.

That way, you can comprehensively manage your business documents throughout the entire lifecycle.

Digital signature capabilities

Electronically sign any document within the Document Control Suite using advanced public-key infrastructure (PKI) technology embedded into Perceptive Content and applications that support web services.

This technology:

  • Employs private and public key encryption (asymmetric cryptography)
  • Conforms to NSA-approved Suite B cryptography standards and FDA 21 CFR Part 11 regulations
  • Tracks auditing details such as verification, voiding and history

Legally binding digital signatures authenticate the signer of a document and verify the integrity of a signed document’s content within your business environment while strengthening compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, FERPA and other regulatory initiatives.

Additionally, the addendums feature within the Document Control Suite allows you to append pages to a digitally signed document while maintaining the integrity of any existing digital signatures.
