Controlling your Intellectual Property
Safeguard PDF Security and Enterprise PDF DRM can help your business in many ways from enabling you to share documents securely to ensuring regulations are complied with.
There are many advantages of going digital (cost and time savings) and using DRM to protect your digital documents – the ability to have documents automatically expire after a number of views/prints/days/fixed date, being able to instantly revoke access to documents no matter where they reside, and the application of dynamic watermarks to discourage photocopying of printed material.
Locklizard ensures only authorized users can access your secure documents and that your intellectual property is under your control at all times.
Document retention is a difficult topic indeed for many reasons. Documents have to be preserved intact and unaltered for specific periods of time, often specified by regulation. Commonly six years is necessary, but in the case of medical documents that can be after the death of the person concerned, which these days could be over 100 years.
Although corporations have central archives which are used as the central library for document retention, in today’s computing environment old documents may be retained on computers for many years simply because they have been forgotten. So there is the problem of ensuring destruction once the retention period has finished and that means making sure they cannot be recovered or passed on.
Locklizard DRM controls provide an automated way of ceasing access to documents once they pass their retention dates, regardless of where they have been stored or maintained.
Secure Document Sharing
Preventing Document Leakage
Preventing document leakage should be an important strategy of any organization – losing trade secrets, third parties getting hold of confidential financial information, and loss of customer data can be vital to the bottom line.
So there are considerable needs to prevent these documents from ‘leaking’ out of your organization and into someone else’s, or perhaps worse, the public domain. Typically people changing jobs take client lists or pricing schedules or details of manufacture or repair with them. But each industry has its own specific items of value that a competitor would welcome access to. Using Locklizard systems you can lock documents to specific devices or IP addresses or address ranges, revoke documents and/or users instantly, prevent copying, modifying and saving uncontrolled documents.
Internal Document Control
Integrating Our PDF Security products with your own applications could not be easier. Protected PDF files are treated just like any other file in both document management (Sharepoint Document Security Demo) and learning management systems (LMS Security Demo) so there are no additional overheads or learning curves to consider or worry about.
You can integrate Command Line options to automatically protect your PDF documents as they move through your publishing processes. For publishers selling documents, you can integrate with the majority of payment providers using our ecommerce API to create customers and authorise them to access the documents they have bought. Corporate users within a business can use the API to dynamically manage document access without manual administration intervention. Internal PDF files can be automatically protected using our Command Line encryption tool and integrated into your existing web applications or document management systems without the need to use an additional API.
