designed to copy protect PDF documents and eBooks, CopySafe PDF
Protection provides incomparable copy protection with the most
robust DRM to prevent sharing and unauthorized distribution.
Distribute CopySafe PDF files for desktop reading by email, download and on disk using DRM that enables total control over all aspects with immediate effect on any changes made, even on PDF already downloaded and saved to a user's computer or still out in the wild on disk. Or display on web pages using one of our CMS plugins for DNN, Drupal, Joomla, Moodle or WordPress.
While CopySafe PDF requires a Windows computer (Mac can run Windows via Parallels) it does provide the most robust and most secure PDF protection which is why it is the PDF security software chosen by professionals where livelihoods and data security matter. Unlike most other PDF protect solutions, CopySafe DRM and password protection cannot be removed!
CopySafe PDF software provides 3 different output types:
Your PDF documents can be copy protected for easy distribution with optional DRM to prevent sharing and unauthorized distribution.
CopySafe PDF protection uses military strength encryption to prevent data extraction, ensuring that your document's contents will only be available to who you
expressly allow. Password requirements and expiration can be set on documents for
general distribution, or if more specific access control is needed, DRM can be
enabled to ensure that only those users with your specific permissions can open
When DRM is applied user access is validated by the user's unique computer signature which cannot be shared on other computers. In other words, even if a user sends a copy of your protected PDF to 1,000 friends, none of them will be able to open the PDF unless they also have your explicit permissions. Those permissions are managed from your DRM portal and they can be varied or suspended at any time with immediate effect over any changes made, even to PDF already downloaded and saved to a user's computer or still out in the wild on disk.
Almost anyone who needs data protection that cannot be exploited in any way. Sure, it may be conceivable to use weak protection on ebooks that are sold cheaply, but
expensive online courses, corporate data and other intellectual property that may be mission critical,
needs to be properly protected to protect the livelihood of their owners and
authors. Copy protection for PDF and ebooks cannot be more secure than with CopySafe PDF.
While password protection is considered to be DRM, it does not prevent users from sharing their password with a copy of the file. There are many solutions offering password protection but most do not prevent extraction of
the password from the document as a search for the means to hack PDF passwords will show.
But real DRM, like what is used by CopySafe software, cannot be exploited in nay
way and it cannot be shared because each subscriber is identified by their
unique computer ID which cannot be faked or duplicated.
The CopySafe PDF Protector desktop GUI is easy to use. Simply nominate distribution type, for example for desktop viewing with or without DRM, or for online viewing from your web site, and the GUI will walk you through the steps as you nominate
your desired copy protection and print control settings and project folder.
Unmanaged distribution means copy protected but without DRM, while the DRM option can prevent unauthorized distribution and sharing by locking the
PDF to the user's computer. For display on web site means that the PDF will be encrypted and domain
locked to your web site, and thus cannot be opened or displayed anywhere else.
