DocuLex Introduces Search And Retrieval Capabilities For Encrypted PDF Documents

New capability added to the WebSearch v 4.0 component of the DocuLex Archive Studio Content Management Software Suite

DocuLex, Inc., creator of award-winning, business-ready document management software, announced recently that its WebSearch v. 4.0 document management software, a component of the DocuLex Archive Studio Content Management Software Suite, can execute document search and retrieval operations instantly for password protected PDF files. This new capability that allows WebSearch to accept and manage encrypted PDF files is especially valuable for organizations that are transferring and delivering files mainly via email or unsecure FTP. Many of these organizations are transferring information that is highly confidential, such as social security numbers, forms or payments and privileged patient medical data, so encryption is a must.

Said David Bailey, DocuLex President, "We were challenged by existing and new customers to provide something that could help them manage all PDF files, not just the ones that weren't encrypted. Since email is becoming a primary transport method of files between organizations, and the fact that email transmission is not secure, the ability to encrypt those files that contain sensitive data is becoming more and more imperative. We find there are many applications out there that require protection for their files, so it made sense to create something that could effectively manage this sort of protected file in a business environment. With this added capability to the WebSearch component of our Archive Studio Software Suite, we provide the user an all-encompassing product that will address any PDF document and allow the system to securely and automatically handle this document per the user's specifications."

WebSearch is a secure, browser-based document management software that enhances internal and external collaboration, business process workflow, email archiving, corporate compliance and records retention management scheduling.
