More and more are doing it.

SPDF (Digital Applications - ) now
includes full support of the Acrobat Security Handler & Digital
Signature API's, along with some extensions for doing per-object
encryption. Because it's based on the standard security handling
architecture, you can plug-in ANY crypto system, not just the
standard one (which we provide).

PDFToolkit (ActivePDF - ) supports
standard Acrobat encryption using Microsoft's CryptoAPI.

Also, there are two stand-alone applications that provide
just the securing of PDF documents. SecurSign from Digital
Applications, and PDF AutoCrypt from TenBox
