PDF Protection


PDF Documents

SmartShelter|PDF protects your PDF documents against unauthorized access. SmartShelter|PDF is integrated into Adobe Acrobat and Acrobat Reader and reinforces the built-in protection and encryption mechanisms with the ability to securely store passwords in a license. The license can be kept safe, but mobile on a CmDongle or a CmActLicense bound to a specific device.

Licenses can also be assigned expiry dates (among other options). If the CmDongle or device is lost or stolen, this will prevent any future unauthorized access to the documents or files.

Your benefits:

  • Add another protective layer in Adobe Acrobat
  • Enjoy the full set of protection features in Abode Acrobat
  • Protect files from unauthorized access
  • Solution officially authorized by Adobe
