Training & Education

Safeguard PDF Security can speed up the time getting your training courses to market and ensure your revenue is protected at all times.  Secure training courses are automatically protected against unauthorized misuse (being passed to others for free, or being copied or printed without permission), and you can control how, and how long they are used.  You can make course content available for a specified period of time to ensure outdated content is no longer available, and you can revoke access if you feel your content is being misused.  Users can subscribe to a course and they will be automatically be able to use all course content (multiple PDF files) without you having to give them access to each individual file.  If you want to allow printing then watermarks with user details (name, email, etc.) can be dynamically applied at print time to identify the source if a photocopy is made.

Reports & Market Analyses

Safeguard PDF Security can protect reports (research data, financial anyalysis, etc.) from being pirated and sold, or given away without your knowledge.  Safeguard prevents your customers from sharing reports with other parties and printing them without your permission.  If you want to allow printing you can have watermarks dynamically applied to the document that display user information (such as their name, email, company name, etc.) along with a date/time stamp – so any photocopies made can be easily tracked back to the originator.  Customers can easily sign up to your subscriptions and Safeguard will automatically manage document access through its unique Publication feature.

Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A)

Safeguard PDF Security can protect sensitive M&A information from getting into the wrong hands.  You can lock documents to specific devices and locations (for example a laptop computer which can only open secure documents at a specific office location), and access to documents can be set from specific dates so information is not available before it should be.  Documents can be set to expire after a number of views/days/fixed date or if a new document is made available that supersedes information in an old one.  Document usage can be logged so you know who has viewed and/or printed what documents.

Healthcare & Life Sciences

Safeguard PDF Security can be used to send confidential patient information securely to patients and third party agencies and insurers, and for the protection of clinical trial and targeted treatment data.  By using DRM rather than straight encryption the sender can control far more accurately document usage and prevent it being passed on to unauthorized parties and the senders controls cannot be overridden.  You can log when documents are viewed and printed ensuring that historic use can be verified.  And by using Web Publisher you can create secure web portals containing protected documents where user’s don’t even have to install a Viewer to use them.

Government agencies have many secrets that they need to share internally and with authorized parties and often this is done with secure email and the use of encryption.  However, once a message or document is decrypted by the recipient it is no longer protected.  Safeguard PDF security can facilitate government departments in secure document sharing beyond simple encryption and ensure documents at rest are never saved in plain text.  Safeguard prevents documents being passed on and shared with unauthorized recipients, prevents screen grabs, stops printing, and logs document use.  Documents can be set to expire after a number of views, prints, days, or a fixed date, and can be revoked at any stage.
