Foxit® Releases PDF Software Development Kit Upgrade with Enhanced Encryption Capabilities

Leading PDF SDK Provides Content Integrity and Security

FREMONT, Calif. - September 29, 2011 - Foxit® Corporation, a leading provider of solutions for reading, editing, creating, organizing, and securing PDF documents, today announced the release of PDF SDK DLL 3.1. This release will enable businesses to provide authorized personnel with online access to secure PDF content via a safe conduit.

Historically, enterprises, publishers of electronic content, and developers of digital rights management (DRM) solutions have wanted to increase the security of their confidential PDF content by means of their own encryption methods. As a result, many of these organizations have leveraged non-Foxit PDF solutions and have invested their time and energy into developing, building, deploying and supporting their own customized versions of DRM.

Recently, however, these companies have found that their customized DRM solutions will no longer be supported by their PDF technology of choice and are being forced to quickly find an alternative or risk losing out on their investment. Fortunately, Foxit has stepped up to fill the gap by providing a standout alternative, delivered through its leading PDF technology that the industry already knows and trusts.

For companies looking to integrate and customize a true “plug and play” and trusted PDF technology into their applications, the Foxit PDF SDK DLL is a single assembly reference for their PDF needs. Packaged in a dynamic library without any dependencies on third-party components, the PDF SDK DLL provides a PDF environment whereby developers have deep control over modules. Fine grain control enables PDF developers to highly customize their PDF implementation to add value and differentiate their offerings. What’s more, the new Security Module allows developers to:

  • Extend their custom encryption methods to encrypt PDF files.
  • Through the View Module, build their own PDF reader to include their own custom decryption in order for their authorized personnel to read content securely while maintaining its integrity.

"Our security features in PDF SDK DLL 3.1 will give customers a complete solution that ensures their confidential PDF documents continue to remain secure," said Frank Kettenstock, VP of marketing for Foxit Corporation. "Enterprises, ePublishers, and DRM developers can feel safe that their investments in Foxit technology will be protected and most importantly, supported."
