New DRM Features For All Document Scenarios.
February 2, 2013 – This most recent release of ArtistScope DRM introduces new features to all parts of the DRM service including server-side features, document conversion software and the CopySafe PDF Reader.
The most important and no doubt the most sought after new feature is the display of CopySafe PDF documents from web pages. Encrypted and copy protected PDF can now be displayed from any web page and be viewed in all popular Windows web browsers. At this point in time, the desktop software for document conversion for online display is yet to be released, but the server side version has been in operation since Christmas for services in Dubai, India, Nigeria and Australia.
Web page display of secure PDF has long been sought after. This new version was especially developed to cater to the requirements of a new online library opening in Nigeria on March 1st. The ReasearchClass site employed ArtistScope to push technology and provide online reading billable by time using clever algorithms. This caters to multiple readers but only bills the active window.
As the latest reader uses totally different encryption algorithms than previous versions, any documents created by the new Protector software will require the new reader even though it is compatible with all previously published documents.
The inclusion of web browser support for reading protected PDF online is a major
innovation as no other "protect PDF" solution provides this support, that is,
without using Adobe Reader files which are nowhere near as secure as
Plugin support is now available for all popular web browsers and it is
automatically installed with the CopySafe PDF Reader version 3.0. The new
CopySafe PDF Protector, both server and desktop versions, have the ability to
encrypt and convert PDF for use for both online and offline distribution.
However, the same files cannot be used for both online and offline reading as
they are each specially designed for those different purposes.
One notable difference is that they use different file names so that authors can distinguish which is which. But the main functional difference is that while offline documents distributed as .ENC files can be DRM controlled, the protected PDF for online viewing are not controlled by DRM. Instead, they are controlled by the web page that displays them. That way, user access can be managed and controlled by already existent CMS solutions that web authors may already have in place. For example, WordPress webmasters will find that there is a WordPress plugin available that is specially designed for adding CopySafe PDF documents to their web pages and posts.
The CopySafe PDF approach to displaying PDF online is a no-nonsense solution that has all possible avenues for exploit covered. For example:
There is no doubt about it...
CopySafe PDF is not only the most secure document
protection solution, but it is also the most versatile!
