Pricol leverages Microsoft Office 365 to secure its R&D IP

Pricol, an auto component manufacturer, has deployed Microsoft Office 365 to secure its IP and sensitive data. According to the company, Office 365 has helped Pricol streamline its policies for access rights to sensitive information.

Office 365 combines the Microsoft Office suite with cloud-based versions of the next-generation communications and collaboration services: Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, Lync Online and Yammer. Each of these services offers individualised security features that organisations can manage and control.

"The deployment ensures that the design and specifications of products under development are accessible only to authorised users and customers thereby creating a secure R&D environment," the company said.

In addition, O365's collaboration services via Lync are helping Pricol employees and customers stay connected across countries. Pricol is also promoting the use of Yammer, the social collaboration tool from Microsoft, inside the organisation for employees across group companies to leverage talent and resources.

Our design, specifications and features represent our intellectual property. Each time we share our submissions with a customer, Office 365 ensures only authorised people are able to access the files. Earlier our product designs carried a risk of falling into our competitor's hands. Office 365 has addressed our concerns around reliability and security of our critical IP," said Pravin Kumar Sadavisam, Group Chief Information Technology Officer (CITO), Pricol .

Quadrasystems.net India, a Microsoft partner, was Pricol's technology advisor in helping them to plan, deploy and manage Office 365.
