Vitrium Vs. Locklizard: How Do We Compare

Vitrium is a customer centric company, and our digital rights management (DRM) products are developed with the goal of providing an ideal user experience. As the source of revenue and livelihood of your company, your content is your most valuable asset. However, it is only as good as the user experience your customers go through when accessing it.

A quality DRM solution should offer an excellent user experience and guarantee that your content is thoroughly protected. Vitrium and Locklizard are two of the leading DRM solutions in the market, however, Vitrium has considerable advantages over Locklizard.


A Better User Experience

With Locklizard, users must download and install Locklizard’s proprietary apps in order to access content. This is problematic because:

  • It adds extra steps 
  • It takes more time
  • Users may not have permission to install 
  • Apps have to be installed on each device they use

With Vitrium, users can access their content quickly and easily, as Vitrium does not require the person to download or install any plug-ins or third-party proprietary apps. 


More Supported Formats

Unlike Locklizard that only protects PDF files, Vitrium protects multiple file formats including PDF, other document formats, images, audio and video. Your content protection options are limited when choosing Locklizard, especially if you have a variety of different content in different forms.

Portal Customization Included in Price

Locklizard offers a basic portal with limited customization features, for an additional cost above the subscription price. Vitrium has far more extensive customization features with its portal, including the ability to add your brand colors and logo, change button and text colors, add text headers and logos, customize the folders with different colors or images, customize the domain URL, enable self-registration, and more. Furthermore, these customizations are all included in Vitrium’s subscription price.

Efficient Administrator User Experience

Locklizard’s administrator user experience is tedious and cumbersome. With Locklizard: 


  • Administrators need to download separate Locklizard apps, one to protect content and another to access content, and this must be done for each device
  • Files must be converted to PDF format before uploading to Locklizard 
  • The first protection process converts a PDF file to Locklizard’s proprietary PDC format
  • A second protection process needs to occur to create the secure web version 
  • Locklizard only issues 3 admin licenses per account



Locklizard Admin User Experience


Vitrium’s administrator user experience is exceedingly better. With Vitrium: 


  • Administrators can upload multiple content at the same time, even thousands of files at a time
  • Content doesn’t need to be converted to PDF before uploading as Vitrium supports multiple file formats including other document types, images, audio and video files
  • When files are uploaded into Vitrium, two encryption and conversion processes take place at the same time: one for a protected PDF format and another for a secure web format 
  • For video content, Vitrium encrypts and converts the video to different bitrate streams
  • Vitrium allows unlimited administrators per account

Additional Watermarking Choices

Locklizard’s watermarks are limited and simple – they have few font choices, placement, and dynamic data. 


Conversely, Vitrium offers a wide variety of watermarks. With Vitrium, you can choose:


  • Text or dynamic watermarks with user-identifying information in the watermarks
  • Different font types
  • Different font colors
  • Different font sizes
  • Different opacity levels
  • Different placements, including custom placements

With Vitrium watermarks, you can also create multi-line watermarks (2 or 3 lines, whatever you prefer) and you can add multiple watermarks to your content - one at the bottom, one at the top, one in the center diagonal, and one on the left or right margin of the page - it’s your choice!



Although it may seem like a challenging task to decide which DRM system to use, it is important to note that there are clear differences among the top choices. There are several details that will not only guarantee a higher degree of protection, but also make the experience for your administrators and your users significantly better. These are valuable things to consider when looking to protect your intellectual property, and Vitrium excels in both categories – content protection and ease of use.
