Prevent  print
Prevent send email /skype ( They have pop3 email )

Have you looked into the security preventions in Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Pro?  PDF files can be constrained in most of the ways you suggest. PDF's are good because any normal print format (Excel, Word, etc.) can be made into PDF files. ... Thinkpads_User

The only thing that fits the bill is Information Rights Management

Dear jobby1,

please let me fully support KCTS' recommendation of Windows DRM solution which would be my preferred choice.

Alternately - IF your organization already use McAfee Enterprise AntiVirus - you may want to check out McAfee DLP (Data Loss Prevention): http://www.mcafee.com/us/products/data-protection/data-loss-prevention.aspx

Kind regards,

So far I've used a PDF DRM solution from Armjisoft for this purpose to prevent my users taking away and sharing the sensitive company documents while allowing them to work on these files just like before on their authorized computers.

There are also other drm solutions available for Office Documents, AutoCAD Drawings, PDF, CHM and Flash Multimedia files.

Take a look at:
