1.2 About SecurDisc Viewer
SecurDisc Viewer is a standalone application that is part of the SecurDisc technology plat-
form. This is the one application that allows you to open PDF documents that have been
password-protected against unauthorized access using SecurDisc and/or protected against
unauthorized duplication using the special SecurDisc duplication protection feature.
The SecurDisc duplication protection feature lets you effectively control the distribution of
electronic documents since copy-protected documents (only PDFs at this time) can only be
read, not copied; in other words, they cannot be edited or sent electronically.
Files protected using SecurDisc can only be distributed using an original DVD which is read
by the recipient with the help of a SecurDisc drive and the SecurDisc Viewer application. The
files cannot be copied or saved under another name.
SecurDisc Viewer can be downloaded free of charge at
