Foxit® Mobile PDF supports Microsoft® Azure Active Directory® Rights Management

User Can Interact with Rights Protected PDF Files from Mobile Devices

FREMONT, Calif. May 6, 2014 – Foxit® Corporation, a leading provider of solutions for reading, editing, creating, organizing, and securing PDF documents, today announced Foxit Mobile PDF’s integration with Microsoft Azure Active Directory Rights Management (AAD RM).  Mobile PDF is Foxit’s solution to read and annotate PDF files on leading mobile devices.  This new capability for Mobile PDF is part of the Foxit PDF Security Suite solution, Foxit’s comprehensive solution for extending Microsoft’s Rights Management Services (RMS) for PDF.  This release with AAD RM integration allows users to read, annoate, and encrypt rights protected PDF documents on mobile devices.

End users are accessing files through email, network, and cloud services from both desktop and mobile platforms.  Many of these files contain confidential information which needs to be protected.  Therefore, Foxit has partnered with Microsoft to provide organizations with a complete RMS solution which provides end users a common user experience to work on protected PDF files from both desktop and mobile platforms.

New feature highlights:

  • Allows users to unprotect and view PDF documents encrypted in Microsoft Protected File Format.
  • Allows users to save back (re-protect) protected files after making changes that are allowed by policies they have been granted.
  • Use the company standard rights policy templates to encrypt (protect) new PDF documents in the Microsoft Protected PDF format.
  • View file permission information on protected PDF files.

The AAD RM support will be available as an additional product called Foxit Mobile PDF with RMS, available on iOS® and Android™ platforms. 

“As workforces become more and more mobile, users need to read, annotate and encrypt rights protected PDF files from their mobile devices,” says Jenny Li, VP of Product Management at Foxit.  “By partnering with Microsoft, we will be able to provide customers with a consistent solution to manipulate RMS protected PDF files on users’ desktops and mobile devices."
