What is Document DRM Software?

Document DRM software is the tool that enables you to protect digital assetsdocuments in this caseto be securely distributed online. It is the process of protecting documents that may be a source of revenue to your organization, confidential, or sensitive in nature. Document DRM encrypts your digital files and uses a series of settings and controls so that you have complete authority over who has access to your content and how they access it. 


A comprehensive document DRM system allows you to add a broad set of security measures to your content so you can distribute it with the peace of mind that it will not be unlawfully downloaded, copied, or shared. It ensures, firstly, that only authorized users can access them. Secondly, it enables you to put restrictions and rules in place to determine how files are accessed. Overall, it provides you with the freedom to define the way in which your documents are accessed and viewed. 

How Does Document DRM Work?

DRM software works by applying a 128-bit AES encryption to your digital document. During the encryption process, the Vitrium technology is wrapping layers of encryption around your document and converts the document into two encrypted formats. 1) Secure Web Link. 2) Secure downloadable PDF. Applying flexible DRM policies to the encrypted content, ensures users can then access and consume content within the parameters you've set. 


With a quality DRM document software you can:

  • Protect your documents & convert them to a secure web format or a downloadable protected PDF
  • Prevent printing, downloading, copying or sharing
  • Apply dynamic user identifying watermarks
  • Set expiry dates, device limits, open limits & control access by IP address or location
  • Provide your users with online or offline access
  • Provide seamless access to content in browsers, a customizable user portal, or your website
  • Integrate with existing business systems
  • Provide single sign-on (SSO) access
  • Identify who is accessing your documents, when, where, & how
  • Be in complete control over your IP, ensuring only authorized users have access

Why Should You Use Document DRM Software?

Copying and sharing content is extremely easy in the digital age. Documents can be easily uploaded and downloaded with a simple click, and while this makes our lives easier, it also puts digital content at high risk of being unlawfully copied or shared. 

The digital documents you distribute online may be a source of revenue, they may contain sensitive information, or they may be confidential. By failing to protect them, they can easily land in the wrong hands, harming your organization. If you leave your content unprotected, you put it at risk of being plagiarized and, even worse, tampered with.
