Foxit(R) Delivers Enhanced PDF Document Security Solution

Foxit RMS PDF Protection Tool Protects PDF Files in Microsoft(R) IRM Environments Programmatically

FREMONT, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/24/13 -- Foxit® Corporation, a leading provider of solutions for reading, editing, creating, organizing, and helping secure PDF documents, today announced the Foxit RMS PDF Protection Tool. This product is part of the Foxit PDF Security Suite solution for protecting PDF files. This new product encrypts and protects PDF files with permissions and authorization settings through programmatic interfaces to prevent sensitive information from being printed, edited, and copied by unauthorized users in Microsoft Active Directory® Rights Management Services (AD RMS) environments.

The programmatic interfaces provide both Command Line Interfaces (CLI) for IT administrators to run in scripts or on-demand and C programming interfaces for developers to incorporate into existing applications. Both the CLI and C programming interface support any file sharing/file repository environment to protect and unprotect files.

The rapid growth of online documents has been fueled by the efficiency gains that organizations realize by storing documents digitally rather than traditional paper. PDF has become the dominate file format for sharing and archiving documents. Effectively managing digital access to the large and growing number of online documents with sensitive and confidential information becomes a vital challenge to:

  • Enterprises that highly value information security and information governance which have clearly defined information access control policies.
  • AD RMS users who need to protect/unprotect PDF files.
  • File Classification Infrastructure (FCI) users who need to protect (encrypt) PDF files to a predefined RMS rights policy when files are classified or decrypt the protected PDF files when file classification changes. File classification enables organizations to assign properties to their files and to apply actions to files based on the file classification.
  • Data loss prevention (DLP) and file categorization providers who want to integrate the rights management of PDF documents into their solutions to assign and enforce permissions per corporate policy.

Key features of the RMS Protection Tool for PDF include:

  • Programmatic protection (encrypt) and unprotection (decrypt) of PDF files with specified RMS rights policies. Shields the details of the implementation, allowing the user to protect and unprotect PDF files programmatically using a few simple interfaces.
  • Batch protection and unprotection of PDF files. Allows bulk, on-demand, and event-based file protection and unprotection.
  • Retrieval of official Rights Policy Templates from RMS servers in real-time.
  • Application of dynamic security watermarks. Dynamic security watermarks automatically display viewer identity information on protected PDF files in case users copy confidential information by using screen shots, cameras, mobile phone cameras, video capture, or other similar methods.
  • Generation of activity log files that keep a history of what files are protected/unprotected and when they were protected/unprotected.
  • Out of box integration with File Categorization Infrastructure (FCI).
  • Consistent design with the Microsoft AD RMS Bulk Protection Tool and AD RMS SDK 2.0, providing a consistent user experience to protect PDF documents in a similar workflow as protecting Microsoft Office® documents. Applies uniform security and permission settings across documents file formats.

"With organizations sharing more and more sensitive information through the cloud, protecting this information to ensure only the correct people access it is critical," said Frank Kettenstock, VP of Marketing at Foxit Corporation. "Now organizations that utilize Microsoft AD RMS can easily extend their current solution to secure PDF files in the same way as Microsoft Office files. This protects IT investments in software and training and is transparent to end users."

Disruption, Innovation, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Leadership and Management hear these words all day every day... lofty goals but how do we make it real? Add to that, that simply put, people don't like change. But what if we could implement and utilize these enterprise tools in a fast and "Non-Disruptive" way, enabling us to glean insights about our business, identify and reduce exposure, risk and liability, and secure business continuity?
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Digital transformation has increased the pace of business creating a productivity divide between the technology haves and have nots. Managing financial information on spreadsheets and piecing together insight from numerous disconnected systems is no longer an option. Rapid market changes and aggressive competition are motivating business leaders to reevaluate legacy technology investments in search of modern technologies to achieve greater agility, reduced costs and organizational efficiencies. In this session, learn how today's business leaders are managing finance in the cloud and the essential steps required to get on the right path to creating an agile, efficient and future-ready business.
