Foxit® Delivers Enhanced Support for Microsoft® AD RMS 2.0 and Sharepoint® Enviroments

Foxit Releases Foxit Reader 5.4 and PhantomPDF™ 5.4

FREMONT, Calif. - September 6, 2012 - Foxit® Corporation, an Amazon-invested leading software provider of solutions for reading, editing, creating, organizing, and securing PDF documents, today announced the releases of Foxit Reader 5.4 and PhantomPDF 5.4. Foxit Reader 5.4 provides support for Microsoft® Active Directory® Rights Management Service (AD RMS) SDK 2.0 and AD RMS Client 2.0. It also complies with Microsoft’s IRM Protection for PDF Specification Supplement for ISO 32000. Foxit Reader 5.4 and PhantomPDF 5.4 also provide enhanced integration with Microsoft SharePoint®.

AD RMS is Microsoft’s Information Rights Management (IRM) solution which protects sensitive information from unauthorized access through technologies such as encryption and rights policy enforcement. AD RMS SDK 2.0 provides a simple mechanism for developers to create applications and solutions that protect and consume critical content, allowing customers to rights-enable their applications and solutions much faster and easier.

Key AD RMS integration features of the Foxit Reader 5.4 include:

  • PDF File decryption - allows users to decrypt complaint PDF files so users with the correct credentials can access them based on the permissions they have been granted.
  • PDF File Encryption - allows users to encrypt PDF files compliant with AD RMS 2.0.
  • Support Microsoft Office® workflows - provides a consistent user experience to protect PDF documents in a similar workflow as protecting Microsoft Office documents.
  • Works with SharePoint® - decrypts and opens AD RMS 2.0 protected files on SharePoint servers.

Foxit Reader 5.4 and PhantomPDF 5.4 now support Microsoft SharePoint file check-in/check-out, which allows users to seamlessly check-out and check-in PDF files located on SharePoint servers.

"Document security is becoming an increasing issue as enterprises are putting more and more digitalized documents on the network," said Frank Kettenstock, VP of Marketing for Foxit Corporation. "We are excited to deliver PDF solutions which support Microsoft AD RMS 2.0 environments."

Customers choose Foxit products since they are fast, affordable, secure, and easy to deploy.
