“Here at Dickson Testing we specialize in metal testing where our resources and privacy is invaluable to our company. Our digital files naturally increased with the daily growing technology, but so did our vulnerability. This is where Drumlin comes in. Everything and everyone was considered when we were choosing a PDF solution. Besides being cost-free, what stood out about Drumlin from the rest were the positive individual consumer blogs and forums written about using Drumlin. Drumlin offers the standard in PDF security without the standard in pricing. It is simple to use and powerful when utilized. Other products focus on pricing, focused on getting our dollars per files or licenses but not Drumlin.

"With the great help of their staff, Drumlin focuses on our requirements and catering Drumlin to our use. Their staff are prompt and informative. As a result, Drumlin was easily integrated into our system and has had few to no problems so far. The only issue we initially had with Drumlin is the two year limit for registered accounts, but when it was explained (it is auto-updated without charge) we are more glad to have it than not because of the extra sense of security. With how helpful their staff has been with us, we are confident Drumlin will help us best with our interests. Overall the Drumlin experience is wonderful and a blessing to use. Many thanks again Drumlin!”

The Drumlin service includes the free Drumlin PDF reader/publisher, coupled with a free digital rights management (DRM) service. The Drumlin software and service ensures that PDF versions of documents such as books, technical manuals, market research reports, courseware, subscription newsletters, financial statements, contracts and similar materials can be distributed with complete safety. The fully secured version of PDFs created using the Drumlin software can be placed on a web site, CD or emailed to a user or customer without concern that they might be intercepted, read, decrypted or copied.

The "publisher" facility in the Drumlin PDF reader/publisher strongly encrypts conventional PDF files with the option to ensure that they can only be read once they have been authorized. Even then, these files can only be opened on the individual PC on which they have been authorized - such files cannot be copied and read elsewhere. Drumlin's publisher facility enables many controls to be applied to such documents, such as enabling or disabling text copy facilities; setting start and end dates for viewing; and specifying the number of times a document may be viewed, and the number of times it may be printed (if at all).

The "authorization" facility within the Drumlin PDF reader enables the recipient of a secured PDF to open the document. If all is OK the file is decrypted, saved on disk as a new encrypted file and the user can view and optionally print this file according to the settings the publisher has made.
