Digital Rights Management or DRM has been mainly used to provide access control protection for multimedia products marketed to consumers, like music and movies. There are also a number of DRM products, like Authentica and Microsoft's RMS, that aim to protect documents for enterprises. However, none of these products provide for all the needs of an enterprise, and furthermore these products do not offer all the benefits that DRM potentially offers to an enterprise. In this paper we discuss what DRM offers to enterprises, examine the base requirements for an enterprise DRM system and then analyse how well three existing enterprise DRM products satisfy the requirements of an enterprise DRM system. We have found that enterprise DRM systems have yet to mature with many requirements not satisfied.
