DRM for Publishers & Corporates
Safeguard PDF Security can be used by information publishers either selling information to the public (ebooks, reports, magazines, etc.), or internally by corporations to protect trade secrets and/or liaising securely with third parties.
Unlike encryption products (that protect information at rest and in transit), Locklizard DRM software enables you to have full control over your intellectual property whilst it is being used.
Safeguard PDF Security and Enterprise PDF DRM can both be used by small and large organizations to control document usage – from ensuring only authorized intended parties can access secure documents to revoking access no matter where your documents reside.
A large publisher is anyone who is publishing one or more titles that appear daily, weekly or monthly, i.e. regular publications, and where their customers purchase subscriptions to publications that last for a period of time. These can be financial reports, weekly or monthly magazines, product documentation and updates and documentation.
Using Safeguard PDF Security you can ensure that your ebooks, magazines, etc. are protected to meet your needs. Ebooks for example may be set to never expire (unless you want to give away time limited editions), new editions of magazines to no longer be available when a subscription period ends, and customers to not be able to access back copies of magazines that they have not paid for.
Internal Company Use
Internal Company Use – Board Documents
Protecting board documents can be a critical component of any business. But sharing documents securely with board members should not necessarily involve IT personnel – in fact in most cases it is important they are not privy to confidential information as leakage could affect business operation.
Using Safeguard PDF Security you can ensure that highly sensitive documents are only made available to specific individuals, document views and prints can be logged to provide proof of use, and documents automatically set to expire when they should no longer be used. With Safeguard Web Publisher it is easy to setup a secure document sharing portal where board members can login via their browser to view documents they are authorized to use without having to install any Viewer software.
