Secure Document Hosting & Distribution
Locklizard provides secure document hosting with Web Publisher (protected PDF files are stored on a cloud server either hosted by Locklizard or yourselves) or you can distribute protected documents as you would any other file.
Many providers offering secure document hosting protect your documents online so unprotected files are available on a server for a length of time before they are protected. Our secure cloud storage system (Web Publisher) protects documents locally (encryption and DRM controls applied) and then uploads them securely to a cloud server so they can never be compromised by server vulnerabilities.
If you prefer to host your protected documents then you distribute them like any other file (email, USB, web site download, etc.). Locklizard protected documents can only be opened by authorized users using our secure document Viewers. It does not matter who gets hold of your secure documents – unauthorized users won’t be able to open them – so you can make them freely available via a web site for download without worrying about password access controls.
For completely offline secure document distribution you can use Safeguard PDF Portable to distribute our secure Viewer and documents on USB sticks. Users can start using protected documents as soon as they receive their USB sticks without having to install any software. Additional protected documents can be added at a later date by authorized users when they become available without the USB stick having to be returned to you.
The administration system (where you create users and authorize document usage) can be hosted by Locklizard or on your own servers. This is separate from generating your secure documents (locally on your computer) so you have greater control over secure distribution of your documents and who has access to them.
