Digital rights management

To share and protect

Adobe digital rights management (DRM) solutions, leveraging Adobe® LiveCycle® Rights Management ES2 technology, enable more secure collaboration by helping to maintain control over processes such as product development collaboration, supplier collaboration, work instructions, and field service management. With Adobe solutions for digital rights management, you can:

Reduce the risk of theft and misuse of intellectual propertys

Reduce the risk of theft and misuse of sensitive information

Safeguard sensitive information against theft and misuse so you can safely share proprietary designs with your value chain.

Protect, manage, and monitor

Protect, manage, and monitor the use of sensitive documents outside the firewall

Encrypt and protect documents inside and outside the firewall with persistent and dynamic permissions and policies that help maintain confidentiality, control use, and manage access control. Dynamic policies can allow online and offline control of information even after the document is released.

Eliminate costly design errors

Eliminate costly design errors through revision control during the design process and across the supply chain

Control access to designs or sensitive business information anytime and anywhere, regardless of where the information is stored or how it has been distributed. Content can be set to expire at a predetermined date, actively supporting version control requirements that help ensure everyone is working with the correct document. Individual user or group access privileges can even be revoked in real time. This flexibility allows manufacturing organizations to confidently extend access to information needed for external processes like RFQ and supply chain collaboration.

Rights manage sensitive information

Rights manage sensitive information from a wide range of applications and file formats

Add rights management capabilities directly to Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files, as well as Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire and CATIA documents and many other formats. View a list of all supported formats.

Adobe DRM solutions integrate easily with existing information systems and workflows, which helps ensure cost-effective, centralized, and efficient document security and administration.
