Using PDF DRM Security to secure high value reports – stop sharing, theft, misrepresentation
The need to protect reports when selling digital versions online
There are many specialist reports, market research reports, consulting reports, data intelligence, investor research, and analyses of financial market players or sectors. Metals such as copper, tin, gold and so on all have their specialist players and reports. As do the major share markets. As do countries or market sectors.
The full list is enormous. But reports and analyses share common characteristics:
They are not for public distribution
Public distribution would harm or negate their value or could be unlawful
Unauthorized editing could harm the author and/or the understanding of the recipient
They need to be protected from copying
They can be for sale, but are costly to make and to buy so their content must be protected
They aim at moving targets so need regular updating and distribution
The more authority the report has, the more expensive it is – and the more attractive it is to be copied and passed around without payment. That is a problem with highly desirable information.
Typically, recipients expect to be able to print out the reports for further study, and this makes life more complicated, because without DRM controls it is possible for recipients to easily make their own PDF reports for distribution.
Protect market, analyst, finance, study, journal, consulting, news, data intelligence, law & valuation reports
Strong document security for research providers with copy, print & expiry controls
Locklizard document DRM security has found wide acceptance in the high value report markets for preventing authorized recipients from:
forwarding them to other people
printing them to PDF files
editing and changing content
copying and pasting information
In addition we display and enforce permanent watermarks that identify the actual license holder. This does not prevent recipients from distributing printed copies, but having them named as the source is a strong deterrent to otherwise uncontrolled copying.
Since many specialist reports are regularly updated and users take out subscriptions (although they may also take one-off copies of other reports) the Locklizard concept of the publication is invaluable in simplifying administration and control. Subscription users are given access to a ‘publication’ which is the current report series, and any later copies are added to the publication. Then when a new report in the series is produced, it is added to the publication, and all users of the publication automatically get access. The users subscription dates can be managed in their user record, so that they will automatically expire, but they will continue to have access to reports that have been produced during their subscription. And their subscription can be cancelled if that becomes necessary.
Overall Locklizard provides a very powerful administration and copy protection scheme that can be readily integrated with a web site sales system where that level of sales automation is required for delivering your analyses automatically to market.
Locklizard’s document security for research providers ensures that reports are only used by authorized users and cannot be illegallally distributed, copied and shared. Our document security software provides strong protection against revenue loss using encryption and DRM controls, and persistently protects reports regardless of where they are located. Expire reports after a certain time period or number of uses and instantly revoke access at any time. Stop document sharing, printing and copying.
Protect research data & reports, study data, research methods & market research reports
Research reports are normally only made available to limited distribution groups, and tight control over document use is essential to prevent data leakage, sharing and theft.
Locklizard document DRM security enables you to distribute research data and reports securely with confidence that:
documents cannot be forwarded to unauthorized users
documents cannot be modified or misrepresented
documents can be locked to specific locations to ensure they are not compromised by BYOD use
documents can only be viewed for a limited period of time
documents cannot be printed (unless you specifically allow this)
document use can be tracked and logged
documents can be instantly revoked
Best ways to protect research data
While document encryption products protect against unauthorized access, once an authorized user has been given access they can do what they like with the document.
Locklizard document DRM locks documents to authorized devices so they cannot be shared, and provides complete control over document use, enabling you to protect research data and sell research reports securely regardless of where they reside. You can easily secure and destroy data for research – research data can be automatically expired after a period of time or number of uses and instantly revoked so it can no longer be accessed.
We provide the strongest possible document security and copy protection for market research & consulting service providers and research data analysts, preventing IPR theft and document misuse.
users can share passwords and therefore your ‘protected’ PDF files
passwords are easily removed with password recovery software
Adobe PDF permissions (stop copy, print etc.) can be removed without using any tools in seconds
once the user has the password they can unprotect the PDF and do what they like with it
