ProtectedPDFPrivate sector is taking a cautious approach, even though it is moving towards Cloud Computing at a faster pace. With BYOD being accepted in the sector, security of smart devices and mobile device management has gained even more importance. Document security is one of the key factors due to which decision-makers are still slightly apprehensive about accepting Cloud Technologies. Vitrium's Protectedpdf is making a good attempt in clearing the air in this regard.

While encryption is often considered the foundation for any secure cloud environment, other tools can also enhance document protection capabilities. By implementing identity and document rights management technologies, for example, decision-makers can prevent unauthorized access to confidential resources. By deploying robust solutions and educating employees on best practices, companies may be able to embrace the cloud revolution without leaving sensitive documents susceptible to outsiders.

Protectedpdf is a document protection or digital rights management (DRM) solution enabling organizations to publish and distribute digital content in an economical and viable way.  At the same time It is providing security in protecting their confidential, sensitive or revenue-generating information from intellectual property theft, unauthorized distribution or file sharing, content piracy...etc. The product does not require the end user (reader) to download any plug-ins or additional software to view protected documents. Protectedpdf Enterprise can be integrated with virtually any third-party system or database such as a content management system, Learning Management System (LMS), credential database and Active Directory.
How ProtectedPDF works

With protectedpdf, users can revoke reader access to a protected PDF at your discretion and prevent readers from passing unlocked documents to unauthorized individuals, creating secure PDFs that always travel in their locked form. They can also enable document or computer lockdown and digital shredding capabilities. Additionally, readers can be stopped from distributing hard copies of the PDF document by placing a watermark on the document that is displayed onscreen and on printed copies. Users can also be benefitted by features like Document-Level or Page-Level Protection, Dynamic Reader Access Control, Custom Login Forms, Document Expiry / Digital Shredding, Watermarking and more.
