The 3-Heights™ PDF Security Service is a Windows Service that automatically decrypts, encrypts, and sets permissions on PDF documents placed in watched folders.
Typical uses of the 3-Heights™ PDF Security Service include:
Restrict access to sensitive and confidential PDF documents
Remove encryption on PDF documents, e.g. for long-term archiving in compliance with PDF/A or to allow for the documents to be amended

With the 3-Heights™ PDF Security Service you can:
Install a Windows PDF Security Service Process
Start and stop the service through the Windows services control window
Control the service through a command line interface
Configure any number of security threads

Configure individual security settings (passwords and permissions) per watched folder
The 3-Heights™ PDF Security Service provides the following PDF decryption and encryption features:
Encrypt PDF documents with an owner password to restrict the permissions from being changed
Encrypt PDF documents with a user password to ensure only authorized users can read them
Decrypt encrypted PDF documents, provided that the applicable passwords are known
Set the encryption key length (40, 48, 56, 64, .., 128-bit)
Passwords for the decryption and encryption are not visible to the normal user.
What's Unique? The 3-Heights™ PDF Security Service supports all standard PDF encryption options and offers a wider range of encryption key lengths. Users can decrypt and encrypt PDF documents simply by "dragging & dropping" them into watched folders.
