ESS Secures Microsoft

BELLEVUE, Wash. -- Essential Security Software™, Inc., a provider of outbound email and document security solutions, today announced support for Microsoft® Windows® Rights Management Services (RMS), and the extension of its capabilities beyond Active Directory requirements, allowing enterprise organizations to set and enforce document and e-mail usage policies for the secure exchange of e-mail and documents with small businesses.
