Tivoli Offers Free Privacy Software
IBM Corp. subsidiary Tivoli Systems Inc. released a free download Thursday to help enterprises set and manage privacy policies for their customers.
Privacy is becoming an increasingly important concern for enterprises. As technology companies are pushed to find more sources of revenue, they become more likely to sell data to third parties or use the data for internal reason, such as generating sales leads. Conversely, as customer data is more likely to be shared with partners, customers are becoming more sensitive to how data is shared.
Tivoli Privacy Wizard is available for download here. The software exports the business rules into the P3P standard, which was co-developed by Tivoli and is used by Tivoli Privacy Manager.

With the release of Tivoli Privacy Wizard, IBM also announced that consultancy Ernst & Young LLP had joined the Privacy Management Council. Members already include the US Department of Commerce, Deloitte & Touche, and T. Rowe Price.
