No. SealPath does not store your documents. The user protects them on their PC or network and shares them with anyone they want, however they want (via email, Dropbox, on a file server, via a document manager, etc.). You do not have to upload the documents to our infrastructure to protect them.

It is possible to retain granular edit, copy, print, etc. permissions in Microsoft Office documents (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), XPS and PDF. Later versions will support any file format.
No. If you are going to protect certain documents the same way in the future, you can create a “protection” (or protection policy). It can be created in just a few seconds, indicating the users, permissions, etc. Then it is available to protect all the documents you want.
Yes. You can use what is known as “Custom Protection.” All you have to do is identify the document recipients, their permissions and protect it. If you want to reuse this protection in the future, you can save it with a name and it will be available to protect new documents.
Yes. Sharing a policy so that your associates can protect all the documents they send you is easy. You only have to indicate who you want to share it with in the protection configuration. This way, you will be the owner of all the protected documents and you can change the accesses and viewing options whenever you want.
If you share a document with someone at another company and you think they are going to need to share it with their associates, you can assign them the “add users” permission. This way, when they want to share the document with their team, the customer/supplier will be able to add these people, without having to ask you to add one of their associates.
No. We know that if someone is determined to steal our car or break into our house, there isn't a lock or alarm that can prevent them. But does that stop us from using a lock or alarm on our house or car? SealPath, like a good lock or alarm, invites those who do not have permissions not to access the documents. It ensures that only the people you want have access, logs valid and improper accesses, makes copying the content more difficult by limiting print or copy and paste functions, even adds watermarks that will appear in the background of photos, etc. It also allows you to remotely destroy the document or close access to people who previously had permissions.
Yes. When someone has “add users” permission for a document, they can give access to their associates. However, you can monitor who has been added and if you consider it necessary at any time, prevent these people from accessing the document, for which you will continue to have all the permissions.
They only have to register for SealPath to access the protected document from Office. They do not need to download any additional software. For PDFs, after registering, they can download the SealPath application, which contains a plug-in for accessing protected PDFs.
Yes. SealPath can protect several documents all at the same time. Select the documents and drag them to a given protection and they will be protected by it. If for some reason the application was unable to protect one of them (e.g., you do not have permissions to change the protection), it will inform you of this.
