Acrobat rights managed after distribution
Authentica has released PageRecall, an information security solution for the latest version of Adobe Acrobat 5.0. PageRecall uses Authentica's Active Rights Management (ARM) technology that allows companies to share sensitive and confidential information as Adobe PDF files. ARM, within PageRecall, maintains rights to control how the PDF documents are accessed and used after distribution. Through PageRecall, document owners can recall and expire Adobe PDF files at any time; establish recipient rights as to their ability to distribute, print or copy the PDF file; set usage permissions and expiration at the page level; track activity on files, including when and how often each page was read or printed. Furthermore, document owners can change access and usage policy or expiration dates any time after delivery, regardless of document location.
