PDF Owner Guard - Digital rights manager (DRM) and data encryption system

When you want to distribute documents (e-books, sensitive documents, etc) over internet or local network or want to send a sensitive document via e-mail or P2P file sharing network you might want to apply protection to it so it can’t be misused by others. PDF OwnerGuard is such an application which provides many protections and limitations like 512 bit strong encryption, expiry date, disabling functions like copying, printing, screen capturing, etc.

PDF Owner Guard is a reliable digital rights manager (DRM) and data protection system which not only lock your protected documents to specific computer(s) using the computer ID or user account name etc, but also control and apply limitations for viewers using a user side DRM component called License Manager. This minimizes your users DRM hassles by letting them access your secure PDF files offline.

The License Manager is a tiny module which lets users add owner-generated licenses and access protected files. And also, the users do not need to run any additional application to access them.

Moreover it features a strong login method to prevent unauthorized access of any personal license codes stored on your machine. The encryption is based on an advanced 512-bit AES encryption system.

It supports a wide range of limitations for data users including working time, expiry date, and print and save functions, clipboard copying, screen-capturing, etc. Moreover it provides more security features than Adobe’s DRM method offered and also the personal edition is completely free. You can download it from program's homepage.
