Protectedpdf has enabled us to seamlessly transition from issuing print materials to distributing electronic content online
Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) October 7, 2008
Leading PDF technology vendor Vitrium Systems today announced that it is offering custom deployments of its Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology protectedpdf for Microsoft SharePoint. Vitrium is the only company offering SharePoint-based PDF protection software that does not require readers to download and install either a plug-in for Adobe Reader or a third-party proprietary viewer.
Leveraging SharePoint is helping Vitrium bring reader-friendly DRM to the leading collaboration and content management platform's massive user-base. SharePoint is Microsoft's fastest growing server product ever, with sales in excess of $1 billion.
With SharePoint, protectedpdf can offer each customer a unique browser-based PDF security solution. A custom protectedpdf solution can be delivered as an onsite deployment or a fully web-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) application.
Vitrium has already had significant success building SharePoint-based custom PDF protection applications for several clients, including LOMA, an internationally respected financial services and insurance industry association with over 1,200 member companies in more than 80 countries.
To help member companies optimize their operations, LOMA offers a range of courses and publishes study materials in several languages. Since August 2008, the association has been distributing selected course materials electronically and using protectedpdf to secure those materials against misuse and unauthorized sharing.
"Protectedpdf has enabled us to seamlessly transition from issuing print materials to distributing electronic content online," said Larry Scott, chief information officer of LOMA. "This allows us to offer our stakeholders a higher level of service, while maintaining control over our intellectual property."
Vitrium Chief Executive oOfficer Peter Nieforth noted, "Using SharePoint, we are focused on meeting every customer's DRM needs, no matter how complex. Our technology is rooted in ease of customization, so it can work seamlessly with a client's existing workflow systems and information technology set-up."
The browser-based nature of SharePoint allows protectedpdf to offer uniquely flexible and user-friendly DRM technology. Vitrium chief technology officer, Dr. Terry Coatta commented, "With SharePoint, we can deliver very complex DRM solutions while maintaining a simple, intuitive end-user experience."
