Control Access to PDF Files and Generate Secure PDF Envelopes for Other File Types

Control how people use the content in your PDF files with APCrypt.

Set passwords to ensure that only you or the people you authorize can see or edit the contents. Choose different tiers of encryption to control what people may do (or not do) other than read the document: for example, you can prohibit or permit printing as well as extracting or copying content or any combination thereof. It’s your choice.

Need to deliver encrypted PDF files along with non-PDF file attachments? APCrypt can generate secure PDF “envelopes” to make delivery easy. Also, the server-based software can batch process files on a server or deliver encrypted PDFs on demand from online requests.

  • Apply 256-bit AES encryption to PDF documents; the latest and most secure Adobe Acrobat standard encryption mechanism
  • Secure Envelopes; apply 256-bit AES security to PDF and non-PDF file attachments while leaving the PDF itself unencrypted
  • 40-bit or 128-bit RC4 Encryption to support older versions of Adobe Acrobat® or Reader®
  • User password to control who may view, print, or modify a document, and an owner password to control who may change security settings
  • Owner password, dynamically remove encryption settings from your documents, enabling users to change previously encrypted files or apply new encryption settings
  • Set Document Permissions to control viewing, printing, copying, assembly and accessibility.
  • Optionally, retain current file modification date
  • Utilize PDF as a secure delivery envelope for attached files
  • Linearize output PDFs for faster access and viewing when downloaded from the Web or a network (Fast Web View)
  • Optimize to reduce output file size
  • Consistent with Title 1 of the United States Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) of 1998, Appligent software will only permit the modification of encrypted documents when the owner password is supplied
