Protectedpdf offers a wide variety of features from basic document DRM features such as password-protection, copy / print control, and watermarking to advanced protection features such as batch protection and integration with a variety of systems including credential systems, Learning Management Systems (LMS), Active Directory, e-commerce sites and much more.
Document-Level or Page-Level Protection
Protect an entire PDF document with password-protection or secure only select pages, leaving other pages open for viewing. This allows your readers to preview certain pages of your document before being asked to log in to access the protected pages.
Copy, Paste & Print Control
Disable text copying and document printing in order to protect intellectual property, prevent content piracy, and stop readers from distributing hard copies of your PDF content.
Dynamic Reader Access Control
Dynamically define, modify and revoke reader access permissions. Set passwords or other security measures for your authorized readers whether they are students, buyers, subscribers or other types of document readers.
Set documents to auto-unlock when authorized readers re-open them, maintaining a seamless experience for readers.
Custom Login Forms
Create a custom cover page or login form for your protectedpdf document. Include your own logo, colors, design and messaging to ensure you maintain consistent company branding.
Create secure PDFs that always travel in their locked form even after being accessed by a reader, preventing readers from passing unlocked documents to unauthorized individuals.
Limit the number of computers on which a reader may access a secured document, discouraging widespread online sharing of passwords and other login credentials.
Control where your documents are opened. Customize your documents for different locations and target readers with your content. Set limits by city, region, or country, and prevent your documents from leaving a geographical area.
Document Expiry / Digital Shredding
Ensure readers cannot access a PDF document after a certain period of time by revoking their access even after the protectedpdf has been distributed to them. This feature can also be useful in cases where a new version of the PDF has been distributed and you no longer want the older version in circulation.
Embed a watermark in your PDF to identify document ownership. This feature often discourages sharing of information via screen capture and enables the document publisher or content owner to know who is redistributing its content.
Understand how your PDF documents are being distributed and utilized by your readers by tracking when a PDF document is opened, which PDF viewer and version was used, and which IP address and machine ID was used to open the document.
Expand your readership by allowing your readers to share documents with friends or colleagues. New readers will be able to create a username and password and access your document for a limited time. Discover what your readers are sharing and who they’re it sharing with so you can build a better content strategy.
Batch or Automated* Protection
Ensure maximum efficiency when protecting large numbers of documents by securing multiple PDF documents at a time via batch upload or an automated process.
Family Single Sign-on*
Group documents so that a reader who logs in to one PDF can access the other PDF documents within the same group without logging in again, increasing the ease of access for readers.
Web Portal Single Sign-on*
This feature is ideal for those organizations that sell, offer or provide their PDF documents over the web via some kind of registration or login. When this feature is enabled, readers who sign into your website can access protectedpdf documents without having to sign into each document again.
Integration With Other Systems*
Protectedpdf can be integrated with a variety of third-party systems such as e-commerce sites, credential systems, Active Directory, learning management systems (LMS), and others as part of your overall DRM workflow process. Automate the processes to make it easier and more efficient for your business and for your end customers or readers.
*Available in the Enterprise Edition only.
