This week in PDF has seen the announcement of an enterprise PDF security solution, the launch of a server-based redaction product, a major update to a PDF developer component, and support for searchable PDFs added to a popular scanning product.
First up, LockLizard has announced the pending release of its PDF security product for large publishers. Safeguard Enterprise PDF Security is based on the Safeguard PDF security suite, which prevents copying, modifying, sharing, and unauthorized distribution of PDF documents and enables users to control expiry, revoke access, and limit the number of views and prints. It has been extended to offer enhanced PDF security, customization capabilities and administrative functions. A new administration system offers additional information, but boasts a simple searching interface. To find out more, check out the official website.
In other news, Code Origami has launched a server-based tool for redaction. InfoRazor Server allows users to quickly remove (redact) confidential information from PDF documents. The tool accommodates more than 50 users while processing a large number of documents, which can reduce costs and increase productivity. For more information, check out the official vendor website
Last but not least, Hamrick Software has released the latest version of its flagship scanning solution. VueScan 8.6.33 adds support for the creation of searchable PDF files, a frequently requested feature. VueScan is available for Mac OS X, Windows and Linux, and includes options for scanning faded slides and prints and automatically adjusting images to optimum color balance that reduces the need for manual processing in Photoshop. The software also includes built-in IT8 color calibration of scanners and batch scanning. For a detailed listing of VueScan features, check out the official vendor website/
