Enables Microsoft Rights Management Services Users to Protect and

FREMONT, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/13/12 -- Foxit(R) Corporation, a
leading provider of solutions for reading, editing, creating,
organizing, and securing PDF documents, today announced that Foxit
Reader and PhantomPDF support Microsoft's recently announced Active
Directory(R) Rights Management Service (AD RMS) SDK 2.0 and AD RMS
Client 2.0. The Foxit Reader is a Microsoft preferred PDF reader for
AD RMS 2.0, SharePoint(R) 2013, and SharePoint Online in Office 365
environments. Both products comply with Microsoft's IRM Protection
for PDF Specification Supplement proposal for ISO 32000.
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.
"We are excited to partner with Foxit to extend support for PDF in AD
RMS and SharePoint environments," said Dan Plastina, Information
Protection team Partner Group Program Manager of Microsoft
Corporation. "Foxit Reader's performance, security, and enterprise
ready capabilities make it a Microsoft preferred PDF reader in AD RMS
and SharePoint environments."
Key Microsoft integration features include:
-- PDF File encryption and decryption - provides full featured PDF
viewing, collaborating, and editing functionality for Microsoft
SharePoint IRM Protector RMS enabled PDF files per the credentials and
permissions of the user.
-- Support Microsoft Office(R)workflows - seamlessly extends AD RMS to
provide policy protection to PDF documents in Exchange(R), Windows
Server and/or desktop solutions in a similar workflow as protecting
Microsoft Office documents.
-- SharePoint file check-in/check-out - enables SharePoint users to
easily open PDF files that are checked out from SharePoint and then
check-in those files at the same location on the SharePoint server
after changes are made.
-- Dynamic security watermarks - Allows the creation of dynamic security
watermarks to automatically display viewer identity information on
protected PDF files. This provides additional security to protected
files from being compromised by users copying confidential information
through mechanisms such as screen shots, cameras, and video capture.
