Everyone knows how popular file-sharing services like Box and Dropbox are. Even if many IT departments don’t like to acknowledge this shadow IT, the fact remains - sensitive information in documents is being shared to these services.
Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) May 21, 2015
Standard and Pro Edition Protectedpdf customers who share, or would like to share, their sensitive and valuable documents via Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, and MS OneDrive services, can now use Protectedpdf DRM and encryption to secure these documents and easily store them directly onto these familiar cloud file-sharing platforms. Customers having accounts with these services will find it especially useful for sharing confidential, sensitive PDF documents to the cloud service they normally would use where they can distribute them at will.
The PDF document is uploaded from the cloud service of the administrator’s choice, secured, and then can be saved and shared out to that service easily.
Documents that have been protected within the Protectedpdf interface can be sent to Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, or MS OneDrive, cloud sharing services at any time via the “cloud upload” icon.
The cloud-sharing feature is included with all Standard and Pro Edition accounts. Enterprise customers will need to contact Vitrium to see if their custom installation can be integrated with these services.
Other improvements included in the Protectedpdf version 5.6 release are:
1. An improved help area that links to Vitrium’s new helpdesk area featuring ticket submission, knowledge base with FAQ’s, search, a community forum, and articles.
2. Contextual memory for the web link, meaning that should a reader exit the document and then reopen the document, the point of last position will be remembered and display exactly where the reader left off.
3. Annotations and highlighting will now be remembered while the document is offline, and be synchronized regularly. End-users can also force document synchronization via the synchronization icon as frequently as desired (offline document copy and sharing permissions must be enabled for this feature).
