Copy Protecting Video With ASPS
Any media displayed on your web page will be copy protected and you can use any video file format or embedded player that you like. You can even embed live streams and video from media services like Vimeo. For examples of protected video displayed in your favorite CMS such as WordPress, Moodle, etc please visit one the demo sites listed below.
Copy Protecting PDF With ASPS
Any media displayed on your web page will be copy protected but with PDF you need to be careful not to provide options for print, download, etc. For example, simply embedding the PDF will enable Adobe Reader support which provides options that cannot be disabled. However by using a PDF JS viewer the PDF is dissembled and displayed as HTML. It still looks like an embedded PDF but you have the option of removing the toolabar options for download, print and save. For examples of protected PDF displayed in your favorite CMS such as WordPress, Moodle, etc please visit one the demo sites listed below.
Copy Protecting Images And Text With ASPS

It still looks like an embedded PDF but you have the option of removing the toolbar options for download, print and save. For examples of protected PDF displayed in your favorite CMS such as WordPress, Moodle, etc please visit one the demo sites listed below.
ASPS Site Protection Server Requirements
Any version of Windows or Apache/Linux web server is suitable. However a dedicated or virtual web server is required to have the permission to install software at system level. Installation is always performed by ArtistScope to ensure that the filter module is suited to the server OS version and that it is properly licensed for the intended web site/s. Self install is not an option.

in that it can retrieve and deliver
a web page for review in the ArtisBrowser. Any type of web page
can be mirrored and copy protected in.
However while the web page will
be copy protected, any pages clicked through from that page will
not be protected. Also, if you visit that page directly it will
not be protected. Only the page that we display in the demo will
be copy protected. The ArtisBrowser is required for this
demo. Try it and see for yourself why ArtistScope copy
protection software is incomparable.

protection settings to apply to

much simplified by using a plugin for your CMS that can add your
ASPS meta-tag selection to existing web pages on the fly and
nominated which pages for your secure web site are to be protected without editing those pages

Frequent Questions and Answers
- Does ASPS site protection include DRM features like with CopySafe PDF?
No. Because most web sites today use a CMS like Drupal or WordPress to manage user accounts and logins. So it is best to use those existing features, use a custom add-on or modify the user management system already in place. However the ArtisBrowser does provide the unique Computer ID for each user that can be used to lock computers to individual accounts.
- Can ASPS protected web pages be searched via Google?
No. Only the ArtisBrowser can decode and read ASPS web page content. This is by design as copy protected content needs to remain impenetrable.
- How does ASPS download speed compare with normal content?
Apart from the fact that content is not cached, download speed will be the same for any first visit to a normal web page. The software has been designed and tested for high volume traffic with no apparent loss of performance or extra demand on a web server.
- Can our own developers install this ASPS web security solution?
No. When installed by ArtistScope the server licensing is guaranteed to work and the selection of server filter guaranteed to work for your server type. For example Apache can come in many different flavors and the various control panels installed by web hosts can alter their configuration. So when the ArtistScope team installs the filter, if an odd/new server distribution/configuration is encountered, our team can rebuild the filter software to suit and thus ensure that your web security solution is ready to use.
- Our corporate network uses Firefox or IE. Can these
web browsers be used?
No. Only the ArtisBrowser can decrypt the encrypted page data and display according to the protection level set for each page.
- Which programming languages are supported by ASPS
All of them. The ASPS filter encrypts and delivers the final web page, which is the HTML already assembled by your server side code. So it doesn't matter if your site uses ASP.Net, PHP, Ruby or beetle juice to create your web pages.
- Can the ArtisBrowser be used on a terminal server?
No. This is not recommended at all because if a user on the same server visits a protected page SQL server functions will stop. ASPS server software can be used on any server, but use of the ArtisBrowser to visit that content must done from a separate server, computer or virtual partition.
- Can I test the ASPS website protection on my server before purchase?
No. ASPS website protection requires software to be installed at server level by our support team. However you can use the Protect-Anywhere demo to mirror any web page via our ASPS server. But note that any sites like Vimeo will have protection in place to prevent mirroring of their content.
- Can the ArtisBrowser be used on all devices and OS such as phones?
Yes. As of April 2021 the ArtisBrowser is available for all Windows, Mac, Android and iOS devices.
- What are the alternatives for a copy
protected web site?
Nothing that compares. However the CopySafe solutions can provide copy protection for Images, PDF and Video but they are limited in that a Windows computer is required to view them.
