Adobe Livecycle Rights Management ES2 / ES3 / ES4 competitor analysis

Adobe Livecycle Rights Management

Adobe LiveCycle Rights Management is a document collaboration system that uses policies to enforce limited document controls.  To access a protected document, users must login with a username and password.  This defeats sharing of documents since login credentials can be given to others.

Safeguard PDF DRM Security

Safeguard PDF DRM is a PDF security solution independent of Acrobat that does not use insecure passwords or plugins.  It uses transparent key management and locks documents to specific computers and/or USB devices so they cannot be shared.  Further controls can be used to lock documents to IP addresses and country locations so that for example, users cannot open protected documents on devices taken outside of an organization.

Safeguard PDF Security is simpler to use, provides greater security and more functionality at a fraction of the cost of Adobe LiveCycle Rights Management ES2, ES3, ES4.

Why Safeguard PDF DRM Security over Adobe Rights Management?

Locklizard provides many advantages over Adobe Rights Management security

  • Stronger Security

    Locklizard provide stronger security than Adobe Rights Management, ensuring your PDF documents remain protected regardless of where they are located.

    • No useless passwords – there are no passwords or codes for users to enter or share with others – keys are transparently and securely transferred to authorized devices
    • Documents are automatically locked to authorized users devices
    • Documents can be locked to country and IP locations to control BYOD use
    • You can control the number of devices your protected PDF files are viewed on
    • Stops screen grabbing applications to prevent high quality screen grabs of displayed content
    • If printing is allowed, stops printing to file drivers so users cannot easily create unprotected copies
    • PDF content is decrypted in memory and no temporary files are used
  • Flexible Document Expiry

    Locklizard provides additional document expiry controls over Adobe Rights Management.

    Expire document after a number of:

    • days use
    • views
    • prints
    • or on a fixed date

    You can select multiple expiry options and documents will automatically expire when the first expiration criteria is met.

  • Total Offline Use

    With Locklizard you have total control over documents that have been published for offline use (Internet connection not required after the initial document open).

    • DRM controls are part of the document so documents are persistently protected regardless of whether they connect to the Internet or not, or where they are located.
    • You can group documents into publications so that users only ever have to connect once for the publication in order to view all protected documents in that publication offline.
    • Or you can publish documents securely to USB sticks with our zero installation USB solution for total offline viewing (no Internet connection ever required).  USB sticks can be pre-loaded with a Viewer, documents, and keystore for total offline viewing.  Documents are locked to the USB stick so they cannot be copied to other USB sticks or devices.
  • Choice of Secure Viewers

    Users can install one of our Secure PDF Viewers on Windows, Mac, iOS and Android.

    We also provide two different zero installation viewers.

    • Web viewer – users can view protected PDF documents online using their browser on any operating system

    • Distribute secure PDFs just like any other file – upload them to a cloud server, your web site, send by email or distribute on CD, USB, etc.

  • Cost Savings

    We don’t charge you based on the number of documents or users – just a one off fee for unlimited users and documents.

    We don’t lock you into a yearly subscription service – you can purchase a perpetual license or host the system on your own server.
