How Document Security protects intellectual property
Document Security ensures that only the people you authorize can use files that contain your intellectual property. Using Document Security, you can protect files by using confidentiality policies. A policy is a collection of information that includes confidentiality settings and a list of authorized users. The settings you specify in a policy determine how a recipient can use a file to which you apply the policy. For example, you can specify whether recipients can print or copy text or save changes.
Document Security administrators and users create policies. Administrators create organizational policies that are available to all authorized users. Administrators or policy set coordinators can also create groups of policies called policy sets that are available to a subset of users. Users can create their own policies, which only they can use. Administrators, policy set coordinators, and users create policies by using the Document Security web pages.
