87% of data is shared digitally, with 88% being sent unsecured.


The ability to send and share files with internal team members, external consultants, and other stakeholders, assists in project collaboration, improving efficiency and reducing costs. However, as business decisions continue to be driven by tight deadlines and financial considerations, increasing amounts of assets are being sent using unprotected email, large file transfer and removable storage.

Without the right restrictions in place, files can be misused and altered without the right permission.

‘Hard to use’ existing solutions are disregarded

According to Egress Software Technologies study, 71% of those surveyed stated that existing systems were often overlooked when sharing information because they are hard to use for either the sender or recipient.

OpenAsset provides easy traffic light based access levels, so you can control who can view, add, edit, and delete images. You can assign users to a group and they can only see content based on the permissions you give them. Ensuring the relevant team members have the right access, and your assets remain as they are.

OpenAsset can also save an average of $8,200 per person.
