As part of Virtru’s mission to make data privacy and control easier than ever, we’re excited to announce our new PDF Watermark capability.
Virtru Pro’s PDF Watermark feature enables Gmail senders (and now Outlook users) to individually watermark any encrypted PDF attachment that they share with their recipient’s email address – just by toggling a switch in the Virtru toolbar. If you share a file with Virtru’s PDF Watermark enabled, each recipient you send it to will receive a version watermarked with their individual email address. This makes it easy for you to monitor who shares your sensitive documents.
If your recipient decides to forward on (if you haven’t disabled forwarding), their recipients will not have the option to forward. When PDF Watermark is enabled, recipients will not be able to download your sensitive documents locally.
*At any time you can use Virtru Pro’s Control Forwarding or Revoke features from your Virtru Dashboard, to track or pull back access on your secure messages and attachments.
PDF Watermark provides persistent control and individualized tracking for sensitive documents, such as:
- Creative IP, like manuscripts and business plans
- Manufacturing plans and product specs
- Financial documents
- HR policies and memos
- Real estate applications, and
- Legal contracts
If you’ve previously sent a PDF file secured by Virtru, but did not utilize the watermark feature — you can retroactively do so. Just open the email in your Sent folder, select the Virtru Options arrow and select “PDF Watermarking”, and you’ll be all set.
Virtru can enable the PDF Watermark feature for Virtru Pro customers upon request. Please reach out to a Virtru sales rep to start using this capability, which we’ll take a look at here in this demo:
