Hi All

Is it possible to protect an excel sheet on the Active Directory so that the excel sheet may only be opened within the organization?

Thanks

a free solution would be simply adding a password to the document.

If you want a product than you can use one of the IRMs on the market.

I also heard a while ago about a company called covertix that some of the things their product is doing is protecting files from opening, copying, printing etc. based on location and content or something like that...

Yes, the password protect would work, but that doesn't prevent a disgruntled employee from fowarding the document with the password to an external recipient...

Could you tell me more about this IRM? and maybe a link?

Thanks again
