Appligent Document Solutions has announced the immediate availability of version 4.0 of its enterprise-class APCrypt server software for Windows, Linux and AIX.
The new version supports AES 256-bit encryption and adds the ability to encrypt PDF and non-PDF file attachments alone (leaving the PDF itself unencrypted). This allows users to create and manage secure delivery "envelopes" for files attached to PDF documents.
"The encryption of PDF and non-PDF file attachments allows a PDF file to be used as a transport mechanism or container for secure content," said Appligent Document Solutions CTO Mark Gavin. "This allows the unencrypted pages of the PDF file to be used for instructions, disclaimers or information related to the encrypted enclosures ," he said. APCrypt is fully compliant with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).
APCrypt 4.0 is available immediately from Appligent Document Solutions' website. Production licenses start at $995. The software is available without charge to existing Appligent Document Solutions customers with current Support & Maintenance agreements. Finally, Mac OS X, Solaris and HP-UX versions of the update are scheduled for release before the end of the year.
