Premiership Rugby, the organisation which represents the 12 professional rugby clubs in England which play in Aviva Premiership Rugby, the European Champions Cup and the European Challenge Cup has partnered with Intralinks in a new cybersecurity initiative.

Premiership Rugby will use Intralinks VIA to share its confidential information securely. The organisation will collaborate with central partners and prospects using Intralinks VIA, before deploying in other divisions of the business.

The Intralinks VIA platform will allow Premiership Rugby to communicate with its network securely, allowing it to share confidential information, such as contract negotiations, presentations, guidelines, image banks and critical processes.

Paul Sherrell, Head of Partnerships at Premiership Rugby said, “We chose to work with Intralinks because it is renowned for its work in highly-regulated industries, where protecting data and valuable IP is critical.”

He continued “It is extremely important that we secure our sensitive information. We take pride in working with best-of-breed partners and are delighted to start a relationship with Intralinks.”

Dave Wareham, SVP EMEA, Intralinks said, “2015 is a massive year for rugby in England. Aviva Premiership Rugby has seen tremendous growth on and off the pitch and its brand reputation relies on its ability to nurture commercial relationships,”

“Premiership Rugby understands the importance of using technologies, such as Information Rights Management (IRM), to protect its confidential assets, and recognises that consumer-grade solutions can easily compromise everything it has worked towards as an organisation. We’re proud that it has selected Intralinks to support its document collaboration needs.”
