Overview of Information Rights Management

Information Rights Management (IRM) technology in Microsoft Office 2003 helps to give organizations and information workers greater control of their sensitive information. IRM is a persistent file-level technology from Microsoft that allows the user to specify permission for who can access and use documents or e-mail messages, and it helps to prevent sensitive information from being printed, forwarded, or copied by unauthorized individuals. Once permission for a document or message has been restricted with this technology, the usage restrictions travel with the document or e-mail message as part of the contents of the file.

Note

The ability to create content or e-mail messages with restricted permission using Information Rights Management is available only with the Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 version of the following applications—Microsoft Office Word 2003, Microsoft Office Excel 2003, Microsoft Office PowerPoint® 2003, and Microsoft Office Outlook 2003. IRM is also available in the stand-alone versions of those applications.
