Protecting Digital Assets is a Priority for Every Business

In this digital age of fierce competition and companies vying for number one slots, the use of DRM technology to lock down intellectual property rights, codes, and trade secrets, is an imperative measure businesses must take to secure their digital assets. Unscrupulous hackers and thieves from other companies are willing and ready to swipe the file security away from businesses that leave their reports, documents or HTML web content unprotected.

The fight to prevent software piracy is an endeavor that's been going on for many years now.  Online digital distribution and the threat of theft have put leading software companies in a position of vulnerability.  Software piracy or having documents stolen could have huge negative effects on the financial position of a company just starting out or an established firm with a foothold in the industry. This threat shouldn't stop the ease and availability that it provides to a customer when online software is distributed over the Internet.

E-learning websites use many aspects of the type of technology that those hackers and thieving third parties find attractive. Online training courses that contain PDF files, special web images or proprietary web videos are all susceptible to copy or hacking when left out in the open. A web owner of these sites should at the very least password protect their training documents to avoid unauthorized viewing, modifying or saving of these digitally written tools.

The same measures and file security techniques should be initiated for the distribution of software from a company. Copy protection software can be used to not only password protect these distributable programs but restrict the amount of time they can be used. Licensing software can easily be distributed during the point-of-sale process.

Protecting PDF files, training videos or software programs sold on e-commerce websites is imperative to businesses that want to keep their codes and content a proprietary asset.
