Enterprise PDF DRM Technical Info


SECURE DRM TECHNOLOGY

PDF documents are locked to individual devices (PC, Mac, iOS, Android) and cannot be shared.  Unlike weak and unmanageable password mechanisms Safeguard Enterprise PDF DRM uses public key technology with US Government strength AES 256 bit encryption, DRM controls, and a real-time, secure, cloud based licensing system.  There are no passwords to send, enter, manage, forget, or pass onto others.

You create secure PDF documents on your own computer.  The source (unprotected) PDF files are never exposed to a web server where they could be easily compromized. All communication between the client and the server is encrypted, and PDF Documents are decrypted on-the-fly into memory – they are never stored in temporary files where they can be easily recovered.

We use our own Viewers rather than a plug-in to Adobe Acrobat – plugins can be easily compromized, and every time Adobe does an update they fail to work.
