Microsoft Windows® Rights Management Services (RMS) is information protection technology that works with RMS-enabled applications to help safeguard digital information from unauthorized use — both online and offline, inside and outside of the firewall.
RMS augments an organization’s security strategy by protecting information through persistent usage policies, which remain with the information, no matter where it goes. Organizations can use RMS to help prevent sensitive information — such as financial reports, product specifications, customer data, and confidential e-mail messages — from intentionally or accidentally getting into the wrong hands.
