nCipher launches PDF sealing appliance

nCipher has launched an appliance that allows an enterprise to digitally sign and time stamp PDF files from desktops equipped with Adobe Acrobat 6.0.

Called pdfProof, the network-based device sits on the corporate network as a shared resource and is accessible through a pdfProof plug-in by any networked Acrobat user in a company, said Richard Moulds, nCipher vice president of marketing.

The software establishes authenticity of a PDF document so a recipient is assured of its origin and that it has not been modified.

Moulds said pdfProof provides companies - many of which must comply with auditing requirements for electronic documents - a cost-effective alternative to installing a PKI.
