Benefits for the Content Owner or Publisher
Control PDF Distribution
With protectedpdf, you 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. You can also enable document or computer lockdown and digital shredding capabilities. Additionally, you can stop readers from distributing hard copies of the PDF document by placing a watermark on the document that is displayed onscreen and on printed copies.
Protect IP and Prevent Content Piracy
With protectedpdf, you can dynamically define, revoke or modify reader access permissions. You can disable PDF copy, print and paste features, as well as limit the number of computers on which a reader may access a secured document. Understand how your PDFs are being distributed and utilized by readers by tracking when documents are opened, and which IP or machine documents were opened on.
Seamless Owner Experience
Protectedpdf is an easy-to-use solution for content owners and publishers. The solution may be integrated with your existing IT and business systems such as document management systems, customer databases, credential systems, active directory, or other systems. Additionally, you may protect multiple PDFs simultaneously for maximum efficiency.
Benefits for the Reader
No Plug-ins Required
Protectedpdf does not require the end user (reader) to download any plug-ins or additional software to view protected documents. With full compatibility with Adobe Reader and Foxit Reader, readers can use software that is pre-installed on most computers today.

- Create a simple login process for authorized readers with login forms embedded into the PDF
- Set documents to auto-unlock when readers want to re-open them again
- Group documents together so readers can access all documents with one login
- Allow authorized readers to sign onto your website and access all protectedpdf documents at once
