PdfCrypter enables the subsequent encryption and securing of PDF
documents. The software works as an independent application or plugin for
Outlook. When sending documents by e-mail, the security settings of your
PDF documents can thus be automatically set.
In contrast to PGP and other conventional e-mail cipher systems, the
content of the e-mail remains legible, only the attached PDF is protected.
This makes it possible to send a document to a company's collective
e-mail address (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org). The e-mail can then be
subsequently forwarded to the intended recipient.
You determine who may read, print, process, add to and copy your PDF
documents. PdfCrypter supports cipher systems including high-level symmetric AES
(Acrobat 7) and RC4 encryption with code lengths from 40 to 128 bits as
well as asymmetric encryption with certification.
A comprehensive profile management feature allows security settings to be
saved for various applications e.g. accounts, financial statements and
confidential business correspondence.
Recurring processes can be automated via directory monitoring, call up
parameters (command line) and a COM interface.
Its simple handling and extensive range of features are what make the
PdfCrypter so special. This unique software comes in two versions:
The entry-level version of this software enables PDF documents to be
secured with simple password protection. With PdfCrypter Standard, you
determine the rights which the recipient of the document will have: print,
process, add content or copy.
If you know the recipient, you can also agree on a password which means
that the document can only be opened if the agreed word is entered.
This version is aimed at professional users for whom PDF encryption
security is a top priority.
PdfCrypter Professional supports cipher systems including high-level
symmetric AES (Acrobat 7) and RC4 encryption with code lengths from 40 to
128 bits as well as asymmetric encryption with certification.
PdfCrypter Professional is therefore the right tool for encrypting
financial statements, calculations and other electronic business
correspondence which is only intended for certain recipients. To open the
documents, the recipient must have the right certificate. Nobody can open
the PDF document without your permission!
OK, so you want to stamp your document. Maybe you need to give reviewers some advice about the document's status or sensitivity. This tip from author Ted Padova demonstrates how to add stamps with the Stamp Tool along with related comments.
