Controlling member access
Traditionally, access to a member area is controlled via a login to a cloud-based system where members enter their login credentials to gain access to the system.
The major weakness with this type of system is that members can share login credentials with others who can then access and download content for free. Usually there is no location restriction in place so users can login from anywhere in the world.
Generally, the only protection provided is the login access, and once logged in, users have full control over the documents made available to them.
Controlling membership access levels
Often membership organizations provide different levels of membership and this may reflect on the type and amount of content users can access.
Traditionally this has been achieved using access controls, but they are far from foolproof and often difficult to manage especially with a large user base.
Once content is downloaded from the system then it is no longer protected.
How Locklizard Document Security helps
Locklizard enables member associations, industry associations and membership societies to protect confidential documents and proprietary information regardless of where it is located. We provide persistent document protection ensuring that content remains protected even when downloaded to a local device.
Our document security software enables associations to deliver documents securely to members and stop them from being shared with non-members. Documents can be locked to both devices and locations and you can revoke access at any stage.
Locklizard document security can be easily integrated with your existing member management software – you just upload protected documents to your system and can automate user access to protected documents using our ecommerce API.
