Our DRM products can be enhanced with add-ons to create more comprehensive solutions.
Multiple add-ons can be used together to create a completely automated document protection system – for example: using command line to automatically protect documents (ebooks, reports, training courses, etc.) placed in one or more folders, then using ecommerce to automatically add and assign access rights to new users, and finally giving Web Viewer access.
|Safeguard Web Publisher
Where Publishers want to make protected PDF documents available to users without having to install a Viewer, they can use Safeguard Web Publisher to prepare them for web use. Users use the free browser based Secure PDF Viewer to view them on any Operating System.
|Safeguard PDF Portable
Safeguard PDF Portable is a portable, no installation Viewer and secure PDF document solution for USB sticks (Windows only). It enables publishers to distribute secure Viewers, documents, and keystores on USB sticks, and users to use secure documents from any computer without having to install or register the secure Viewer software.
Safeguard PDF Portable can work in both offline (no Internet connection for the user is required), and online mode where USB sticks can be updated on-the-fly with new documents, keys, and access rights. The licensing control is that whoever has the USB device has use of the license(s) granted.
One use of the USB system is the bulk issuing of conference documentation where all the materials can be published on one USB stick and circulated with the conference welcome pack. You can also publish collections of documents onto USB but only license parts of them at a time to customers – thus saving replication costs.
|E-commerce API – Automate user account creation & access rights
Ecommerce integration allows for full automation between your web sales process (payment system) and the issuing of licenses and document access.
It can also be used within an organization to enable administrators to easily add user access without having to use the Safeguard administration system (i.e. a full administrator of the system).
Instead of having to manually enter user details into the administration system (user name, email address, protected files they are entitled to view, etc.), the ecommerce module allows these details to be sent automatically from your ecommerce system to the Locklizard administration system, so no manual input is required. Users therefore do not experience any unnecessary delay in receiving their license codes, and can view your protected files as soon as they have paid. This is suitable for organizations processing more than 20 sales a day.
You or your web developer integrate with the Locklizard ecommerce module from your ecommerce system of choice, or you can separately purchase ecommerce plug-ins for common shopping cart systems (e.g. Magento, XCart, opencart, Woocommerce, WordPress) from Proexe who also provide integration services, and concrete5 plugins from Mesuva.
There are several reasons why you would wish to automate administration system processes:
|PDF Command Line Encryption – Automate batch protection
Safeguard PDF Security Command Line Encryption Utility allows the automation of actions that would otherwise have had to be carried out manually whilst protecting documents through the Writer GUI. PDF files can be encrypted and DRM controls applied without the need for manual input or user intervention. Commands can be run from the DOS prompt or a batch file.
This also provides quick and simple integration into your existing web based applications and .NET code (where PDF encryption is required on-the-fly) without the need to use an API. It also simplifies integration with Document Management Systems. Using command line, documents can be consistently protected with the same DRM controls just by dropping them into the appropriate folders where a preset batch file is run.
All the protection options available through the Safeguard Secure PDF Writer GUI can be accessed through the command line utility.
The manually operated Writer app used to protect documents can be automated using the Command Line option. This allows an administrator to preset specific commands and have them run as DOS commands in the machine where the Writer is installed. There are several reasons why you would wish to automate the protection process:
So Command Line can significantly improve the automation of the system, devolve administrator responsibilities and increase protection reliability for improved governance.
|Publisher Own Branding
Safeguard Secure PDF Viewer Publisher own branding is a valuable and flexible approach to helping publishers present their overall electronic image in the same way as their print image. Publishers can substitute their own branding/logo in place of the Locklizard logo displayed in the top right hand corner of the Windows Secure PDF Viewer toolbar and on the Web Viewer Dashboard and login screen.
Publishers are able to change their house style dynamically, and can even use special branding for periods of time if they so wish.
The Web Viewer can be customized with the following items:
|Custom Viewer Registration Email
When you add a customer/user to the Locklizard administration system, they automatically receive an email (unless you turn this feature off) with details on how to install the Viewer software and register their license, or how to access the Web Viewer. This email can be customized with your own logo, images, and text, and even the user’s name for a more personal touch. You can also change the email Subject and include the user’s name here too.
This service is especially useful if you want to reinforce your branding, wish to apply a more personal message which may include links to your protected documents, or wish to display text in another language.
