Publishers and high-volume document delivery services face particular challenges in controlling distribution and protecting their revenues. They must address a diverse array of client environments and provide a smooth authentication experience for end-users. At the same time, it is essential to prevent pass-along of documents and downloading from unauthorized sharing sites.
FileOpen’s original document security architecture was designed to solve the unique problems of the publishing and document delivery market. Building on standard document formats and viewers, FileOpen offers extremely lightweight and effective rights management, without burdening end-users or IT staff. With support for iPad, iPhone, and any web browser via the zero-install FileOpen Viewer™, FileOpen's rights management solutions are putting publishers back in control of their content.
