Secure Copy Protection Browser

ArtisBrowser : Secure Web Browser

ArtisBrowser secure web browser for copy protectionThe ArtisBrowser has been specially designed to provide the most robust and impenetrable copy protection for web pages. Today it is the only web browser suitable for copy protected web sites because other browsers no longer support real browser plugins that can action at system level.

When used to display content delivered by the ArtistScope Site Protection Software (ASPS) or a CopySafe solution, it can provide the most secure copy protection for web pages on the planet. Nothing can be saved or copied and with SSL applied, web page data and media is also safe from packet sniffers when SSL is used.

The ArtisBrowser and ASPS combination provides superior data security and data loss prevention that cannot be matched by any other security solution. It cannot be penetrated, not even from browser cache or memory.

Browser Security Features

As a web browser the ArtisBrowser is very different to popular browsers that were designed to exploit web media and intellectual property. None of the exploits commonly found in popular browsers are possible and when displaying pages delivered from an ASPS web site, all of the options listed below can be applied:

  • Prevent PrintScreen, screen capture and recording when used with ASPS or CopySafe.
  • Automatically detects CopySafe solutions and switches to protection mode.
  • Safe from packet sniffers when ASPS and SSL is used.
  • Pages/media cannot be saved/downloaded.
  • No right click menus or status bar indication of hyperlinks in protected mode.
  • Data in browser cache and memory cannot be retrieved.
  • All data and media is safe from downloaders and data miners.
  • Page source view is not possible - media resource links cannot be obtained.
  • Reports the unique Computer ID of each user for DRM management.
  • Browser window can be controlled for size or kiosk mode by meta-tags.
  • Copy, print and save options can be set per page by meta-tags.
  • Supported across all Windows OS since XP.
  • Displays normal web pages like other web browsers except when in protected mode.
  • Includes the usual features for tabs, bookmarks, privacy, etc.
  • Supported on all Windows and Mac OSX desktop computers.

On Windows, the ArtisBrowser is the only web browser that still supports real browser plugins, whereas all of the popular web browsers dropped their support in favor of simple HTML and JavaScript plugins that are used by mobile phones. Consequently no popular web browser can action any effective copy or capture control at system level, making ArtisBrowser the only choice for copy protected web projects.

On Mac its the only web browser that can support copy protection service by the ArtistScope Site Protection Software (ASPS).

Web Site Protection Support

The ArtisBrowser has been specially designed for web site copy protection and ideal for use with the following solutions:

  • ArtistScope Site Protection Software (ASPS)

    ASPS server software can be installed as a server-side filter on dedicated/virtual servers (for both Windows and Apache) to apply copy protection to web pages to be encrypted so that only the ArtisBrowser can decode and display them on both Windows and Mac computers. More information and pricing can be found in the ArtistScope Site Protection Software section.

  • CopySafe PDF

    CopySafe PDF provides the most secure copy protection for PDF that can be displayed on the desktop using the CopySafe Reader, or displayed online from web pages while viewed using ArtisBrowser. More information and pricing can be found in the CopySafe PDF section.

  • CopySafe Video Protection

    CopySafe Video provides the most effective copy protection for video. CopySafe Video files can be viewed on the desktop using the CopySafe Video player, or they can be displayed online on web pages for view in ArtisBrowser. More information and pricing can be found in the CopySafe Video section.

  • CopySafe Web Protection

    CopySafe Web provides copy protection for web pages, images and other media as an alternative for those with hosted web sites (as opposed to a dedicated or virtual server). Although not as effective as the ArtistScope Site Protection System which requires a dedicated or virtual server for the right to install at system level, CopySafe Web can be used on any web page. More information and pricing can be found in the CopySafe Web section.

Privacy Browser

Web browser privacy is paramount when using ArtisBrowser. Unlike most popular browsers, ArtisBrowser is designed for the copy protection of web media and not as an advertising gimmick or for the purpose of satisfying financial backers interested in tracking your ad preferences. While some DRM controlled web sites might log your member account access for security tracking, no other information about your identity, location or search preferences is logged that can be passed onto market researchers or spamvertisers.

In fact, when viewing pages delivered by the ArtistScope Site Protection Software (ASPS), the data and media that you download cannot be decrypted or viewed without the permissions assigned to you by the ASPS web site delivering that content, making the ArtisBrowser the perfect privacy browser.

Kiosk Browser

ArtisBrowser can be used as a kiosk browser by simply loading a page in "Kiosk Mode" which shows the page at full screen and without any browser toolbars or menus that can used to escape that view. In Kiosk Mode the user is limited to the options provided by the web designer, making it ideal for information desks or for use in corporate networks such as for stock and inventory management. For an interactive kiosk the web designer can include every scripting and CSS technique at their disposal.

Safe Exam Browser

ArtisBrowser is the best choice for a safe exam browser because it leaves no avenue open to exploit at all. Unlike most other exam browsers that are merely clones of one of the popular browsers, ArtisBrowser has been designed from the bottom up with the protection of data and media as the paramount concern. For general use ArtisBrowser looks and feels like a normal web browser, but when viewing CopySafe or ASPS protected pages, it switches to copy protection mode to prevent all copy, save and print options. Nothing can be extracted from browser cache or memory.
