Disable Printing of Your PDF Documents with DRM Mechanisms

One of the concerns that many publishers have is that their content can without their consent, be printed and then photocopied and given to unauthorized users thus denying them a considerable portion of their due revenues. A system that can disable printing of their documents is therefore most desirable. In the Adobe Acrobat environment you can disable print but because Adobe uses password protection and passwords can be broken by the numerous password-cracking tools available, printing will go on unabated.

However, by using a non password-based DRM system from LockLizard you can comprehensively disable printing. With this software you can add PDF watermark dynamic user details that will enable you to identify the source of the illegal printouts. In cases where your clients may request to print your documents, say for the purposes of presentations, this LockLizard system gives you the ability to limit the amount of printouts that can be made and even prevent further document access upon depletion of print copies. What’s more, you can disable print in PDF, html and swf files. The add PDF watermark capability has long been an efficient anti piracy technique because all illegal contents are stamped with the username, company name, and even the date and time when the printing was done.

Comprehensive Web Content Protection from LockLizard Data Security Protection

Every organization with a website that contains training materials, service manuals, market reports, and so forth, should invest in data security protection mechanisms to prevent from copying the html contents and images they carry. Content protection also prevents unauthorized modifying of html content, helps you to decide if it can be printed, and if so, how many times this can be done, and controls the viewing of your web content and for how long e.g. days, months, years or forever. has such a data security protection system in its DRM-based Lizard Protector Web Security, and which also includes the capability to inhibit screen grabber and Windows print screen, thus preventing screenshots of your web contents from being taken. You will also love the fact that this web content protection system prevents printing to file, PDF, email, and other common image printers. The system further locks the web content to the authorized user’s computer and this ensures that it cannot be shared with any unauthorized user. The same locking system is also used to prevent from copying the decryption keys, and so unlike passwords they cannot be transferred to another person.
