Unauthorised printing of PDF documents has been a thorn in the side for many eBook authors. Several PDF print protection suites have roamed the PDF market but have left numerous authors disappointed. As a document protection company, LockLizard has risen to the occasion to develop a revolutionary platform which has among other objectives managed to effectively control the issue of PDF printing.
With Lizard Safeguard’s PDF protection suite, LockLizard has achieved an optimum potential in PDF print protection, preventing unauthorised document printing. For authorised printing, the number of times the document can be printed can be regulated. Print applications such as screen grabbers and Windows print screen can now be successfully disabled when dealing with protected PDF documents. Safeguard automatically stops other printing options such as printing to file or email and common image printers such as the PDF format (Acrobat Distiller).
With this PDF print protection platform you can automatically revoke the use of your documents or files any time the recipient exceeds the authorised print limits no matter where the documents are located. The author also has print jurisdiction over his/her documents after distribution by having the power to change the number of prints for a particular client. Safeguard PDF print protection is further advanced in that you can choose to enforce your document’s appearance and style such that even when printed out they will remain in the same format you prefer.
PDF Print Protection is even better with document watermarking. Safeguard has customizable document watermarking options where you can add personalised text, system data and an image which will all be displayed if you let your protected document be printed. You can also opt not to watermark the first page if you want a watermark free cover page, logos or business details. This PDF print protection capability is dynamic in that you only have to protect the document once for Safeguard to apply individual watermarking for each user.
Many PDF print protection suites use passwords to regulate who has access to a particular document. LockLizard knows that there are numerous password cracker tools around and this why they use strong public key technology. The Safeguard protected document connects to a licensing server to obtain an access code. To view such a protected file there is a LockLizard proprietary decryption application, the Secure PDF viewer, that ensures only authorised persons can view or print the protected document.
LockLizard’s PDF security suite with it’s PDF print protection is a user friendly platform that delivers and enforces print controls, surpassing clients’ expectations of security and ease of use.
