Stellent, a leading provider of content management solutions, recently announced its Records Management solution has received U.S. DoD 5015.2 - STD Chapter 4 certification for the management of classified records. The certification verifies that Stellent's product complies with U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) 5015.2 - STD Chapter 4, which is essential for any federal government organization that manages classified records or documents. In order to meet certification, Stellent demonstrated its records management technology could define and manage classification guides and rules that define security clearance levels; and provide security features, such as access control lists and classification schemes that allow records managers to control document access. In addition, Stellent demonstrated its robust, extensible metadata model can simplify the process of declaring and searching for records, and its reporting and auditing features can track all user interactions in the system. "By meeting the rigorous and strict requirements of U.S. DoD 5015.2 - STD Chapter 4, customers of Stellent Records Management can rest assured their classified information is secure," said Dan Ryan, executive vice president of marketing and business development for Stellent. "This certification provides additional value to our strong customer base in the federal government sector." The U.S. DoD 5015.2 - STD Chapter 4 certification verifies Stellent Records Management's ability to control the creation, declaration, classification, retention and destruction of electronic and non-electronic records, including scanned documents. This Stellent software has also been re-certified against the main DoD 5015.2 - STD Chapter 2 standard, which has become the de facto records management standard in North America.
