LockLizard recently released its secure PDF Viewer for Apple Mac OS X platforms. Lizard Safeguard enforces PDF controls, including document expiration and instant revocation. The software will allow Mac users running OS X 10.2 and above to access PDF files secured with Lizard Safeguard in the same way as users running the supported Windows platforms.
John Dermott, LockLizard’s CTO, said, ‘This release was a result of numerous requests from existing and potential customers. Whilst Windows still remains the main user base for all our publishers and their customers, that does not mean we have ignored the operating system that is still the heartland of document publishing. Our beta program has been well received and has given us positive feedback which we have carried forward into the released product. Publishers can now implement controls that are identical across both systems.’
Lizard Safeguard Writer is currently available for windows, with the Mac version expected in December 2005. Lizard Safeguard Viewer is a free download, and is now available for Windows or Macintosh systems from the LockLizard website.
