With more and more professionals working remotely on mobile devices, it is easy to forget that such convenience comes with a price. Cyber-criminals are out there somewhere, looking to take your information away and wreak havoc. Thus, it makes senses that most businesses place great importance on information security, which also includes the protection of critical data stored in electronic documents. For those who turn a deaf ear to safeguarding confidential materials, serious consequences might likely await you around the corner.
Nevertheless, when it comes to documents that have to go outside of your firewalls, enterprises need a different kind of security strategy – one that travels with documents until they reach the intended recipients. PDF, as the world’s chosen format, is the must-have solution to potential information leaks.
ZEON, an established PDF solution developer, provides you with advanced tools to protect confidential documents over their lifecycle and secure PDF documents by inspecting document, marking redaction, signing/certifying, and applying encryption.
