Managing Confidential Information with OpenText Brava! and Blazon Enterprise


Introducing OpenText Brava! & Blazon Enterprise

Many of you may have already heard of Brava! and Blazon Enterprise. These modules are heavily used by Engineers to access, collaborate, modify, transform, and watermark files in different file formats (e.g. Office files, 2D CAD drawings, and different vector images). In today’s article, we would like to show how these modules can be used to control access to confidential information and thereby meet industry regulations and standards.


Brava! is a universal HTML5 document viewer. It is an optional module provided as part of the Content Suite platform and Extended ECM for Engineering package. It enables users to view, print, comment and markup or revise virtually any files, compare differences between versions of the same file, as well as see cross-references between files that are tracked in Content Server. Multiple documents can be viewed as layers to help visualize the information with speed and power.

Examples of Confidential Information Access Challenges


Data Labeling Challenge

According to the ISO 27001 Information Security standard, the information shall be classified in terms of legal requirements, value, criticality and sensitivity to unauthorized disclosure or modification. And based on the Data Labeling standard, an appropriate set of procedures for information labeling shall be developed and implemented in accordance with the information classification scheme adopted by the organization. For any company, these regulations are a big challenge and hard to handle. OpenText Blazon Watermarks are a perfect fit to solve these challenges. They allow users to add watermarks and banners to any document. They can include metadata, such as the document ID or type, from the ECM system or other lead application system information, such as the user name or date and time, or static text strings, such as CONFIDENTIAL or DRAFT. Blazon and Brava! can help to meet any company’s labeling and watermark-related business requirements. 


Right to be Forgotten Challenge

According to the California Consumer Privacy Act, a consumer shall have the right to request that a business delete any personal information about the consumer which the business has collected from the consumer, Brava! & Blazon Redaction can help to erase personal information in an automated and ad hoc base.


Privacy by Design (GDPR) Challenge

According to Article 25 of the General Data Protection Regulation, The controller shall implement appropriate technical and organizational measures for ensuring that, by default, only personal data that are necessary for each specific purpose of the processing are Processed. Brava! Role-Based Redactions can help to implement different role-based scenarios to meet this requirement.
