Safeguard PDF Security version 3 released
PDF protection for secure document distribution & control
Date: March 1st, 2012
Locklizard are pleased to announce a major new release delivering a significant upgrade to the Safeguard Administration system. This release adds additional functionality to the Writer software, and upgrades the appearance and functionality of the Administration system while adding a number of features previously only available to Locklizard Enterprise users.
New DRM Administration system
The look/feel of Safeguard PDF Security has been completely replaced with that of the more recently developed Enterprise DRM platform, and a number of the Enterprise features have been added to the Safeguard offering. The new interface provides the Safeguard user with much more detailed information about customers, documents and publications (including statistics), and screens are cross-linked so that it is possible, for instance, to start by selecting documents to add to customers, or selecting customers and adding document access to them. Document and publication access can be granted to multiple customers in one go.
Apart from the completely redesigned GUI interface and ID/password controlled login, other features previously specific to Enterprise have now been introduced. These include broadening the management capabilities for publications and documents, and delivering the ability to add these dynamically to selections of customers, using a sophisticated range of filters. ID’s may be used in filtering, and all the documents in a publication, or documents/publications that a particular customer can access, may be listed.
Customer records are now editable, and document expiry dates and numbers of prints and views may be changed on a document. Documents can be published without printing allowed, but enabled for specific customers. More account logging information is now captured and retained online for your analysis – this includes administrator actions which cannot be deleted by the Administrator. Customer licenses may be resent just by checking a button and license files are formed using the Customer Name so that they are easier to identify.
Additional Secure PDF Writer and Viewer functionality
Watermark options have been expanded to include random locations on each page, continuously repeated watermarks, and additional dynamic fields. Command line protection now processes sub-folders, and additional ecommerce commands have been added to provide greater flexibility when querying the system.
New screen grabbing security features mask the Viewer window when it is not in focus, so if another application (a screen grabber perhaps) takes control, the Viewer window is masked. This feature is optional, so training organizations that need more than one screen to be active at the same time can choose not to implement the control.
