StarForce Document Protection Becomes True Multiplatform
StarForce Technologies, the leader in software solutions to protect digital content against unauthorized copying and sharing, announces the release of StarForce Reader, an application to view protected documents on devices with Apple macOS. This new version is now available together with applications for Windows, Android, and iOS.
The StarForce copy protection solution is designed for corporate customers and publishers who plan to distribute documents over the Internet efficiently and conveniently. Using StarForce's solution, access rules for documents can be managed, even when a document leaves the enterprise's perimeter. To achieve this, documents are converted to a special file format which can be viewed only with StarForce Reader, an application that is reliably secured against analysis and reverse engineering. Like a number of other PDF viewer programs, this application is available on the Internet for free.
“This year we have seriously improved StarForce solution to protect documents. It is cross-platform for protecting and for viewing; it has digital fingerprints to detect the source of leakage and we introduced silent verification to make it more user friendly”, says Natalia Yashenkova, Head of Marketing and PR at StarForce Technologies. “In my opinion the functionality and usability of the solution this year have reached the 'necessary' and 'sufficient' stage, respectively. And on one hand we have a desire to stop and enjoy this moment of perfection but on the other, as the Black Queen told Alice, we need to run as fast as we can, just to stay in place. That is why we interact with our clients to prepare a new roadmap”.
At the moment the StarForce solution is used on two online services to protect documents against unauthorized copying and sharing. They are SFContent.com and SFLetter.com. The first allows to use flexible settings for access management and digital fingerprints to detect the source of leakage. The second, SFLetter.com, combines email (including corporate email) and document protection functionality. Both services have free trials.
