Safeguard Admin System


Safeguard PDF Security does not use insecure technology such as passwords, JavaScript or plugins, ensuring your PDF files remain protected against simple attacks.

We use public key technology with secure and transparent key management (there are no certificates or keys to manage), AES encryption, licensing controls and DRM to provide the ultimate protection for PDF documents.

Distribute protected PDF files just like any other file - by email, USB, web site, etc.

Users can view secure PDF documents in our installed Viewers, in their browser, or using our zero installation USB solution.
