Organisations around the world are increasingly turning to Enterprise DRM to address their digital content security problems. Enterprise DRM is a prominent technology today as it not only complements perimeter-based security solutions, content management systems and collaborative repositories, but also assists existing methods to restrict access to classified data.
An ideal Enterprise DRM solution will allow an organisation to:
- Maintain control of confidential data, even after it has been distributed.
- Trace the document sent to users, both external and internal to the organization.
- Obstruct unofficial permission to view, share information, or modify data.
As a publisher, valuable content can be made highly secure with the help of DRM’s fundamental functionality to prevent content from being copied – thus making a huge impact in preserving a publisher’s copyright and protecting revenue. Advanced access controls such as printing restrictions and expiration of the document, further empowers publishers to handle online subscription services, so they can get rid of complex and expensive print-based procedures. By deploying the latest PDF DRM systems, publishers can ensure that only the most current and genuine version of the document published by them reaches their viewers. Publishers can also revoke access to specific users or terminate document access if their subscription dues are not being paid. Moreover, using DRM provides a publisher with useful information about how their audiences are accessing and printing their documents, at what time, and from which devices or platforms. Getting such a detailed audit trail can introduce fresh business approaches for publishers, such as undertaking cooperative licensing agreements with content generators, authors and libraries.
Corporate entities also have plenty to gain from employing PDF DRM solutions for their PDF documents. Although there are a host of ERM solutions currently available to maintain classified data within the organizational firewall, these solutions are not specifically created for PDF documents, especially when it comes to sharing them with outsiders – clients, associates, employees, contractors or other individuals / groups outside the organisation. In addition, comprehensive ERM solutions that are executed throughout the enterprise, beginning from the highest level of the organization are licensed with appropriate fees attached to the entire system. On the other hand, a PDF DRM security solution such as LockLizard’s Enterprise PDF DRM security may be employed by a small unit within a large organisation or a medium-sized organisation and be grown as needs require. Organisational users of LockLizard’s Enterprise PDF DRM security can employ many refined and improved access/use controls available in comprehensive ERM solutions and employ them to users both internally and out in the field, complementing existing systems within the network, such as the firewall.
With the help of PDF DRM, publishers and content creators can now rest assured that their intellectual property is not stolen, shared by unauthorized means, or used in an inappropriate manner.
By choosing an Enterprise document DRM solution such as LockLizard, publishers can speedily execute a safe and stable document delivery system that uses the advantages of their existing assets without having to buy an expensive enterprise security system for the whole organization.
