APCrypt is a server-based application that encrypts PDF files with 128-bit or 256-bit AES security, the most secure password-based mechanism available to Adobe® Acrobat® X.
Use to ensure no one changes the content of PDF files, or may copy text or images from within it. Password-protect files to ensure that only the people you authorize can see or edit the contents.
Optionally, encrypt PDF and non-PDF file attachments for secure delivery within PDF “envelopes”.
- Apply 256-bit AES encryption to PDF documents; the latest and most secure Adobe Acrobat standard encryption mechanism
- Secure Envelopes; apply 256-bit AES security to PDF and non-PDF file attachments while leaving the PDF itself unencrypted
- 40-bit or 128-bit RC4 Encryption to support older versions of Adobe Acrobat® or Reader®
- User password to control who may view, print, or modify a document, and an owner password to control who may change security settings
