Batch decryption of password-protected PDF documents now possible

June 18, 2007 in Software (F)

[] The Server Version, which can decrypt an unlimited number of PDF files in one batch previously encrypted at up to 128 bit AES, costs 350 Euros, and is already fit for Adobe Acrobat 8. It is running on Windows, Linux and MacOSX.

PDF documents are nearly always password-protected against alteration, addition, copying, printing and any other processing. This often presents serious drawbacks in work processes involving several companies - such as agencies, publishing houses, printers - as the document password has to be known for each and every PDF document.

The pdf-Recover - Server Edition package represents a completely new kind of solution. This software from UNIVERSE Software GmbH, based in Solingen, Germany, automatically produces a copy of the original document that can be opened despite the missing password, removes the password and places a copy of the file stripped of protection, with empty password fields, into any folder selected. This restores the file to its original state, allowing all of the content to be processed, printed and copied. Even documents with 128-bit AES encryption can be processed with ease.

This is not all that the software can do. If required, the software can scan whole folders for PDF documents, even recursively in sub-folders, and decrypt them. This eliminates the time-consuming task of searching for and decrypting each PDF one by one. The pdf-Recover - Server Edition package works in the background on the server, automatically decrypting large numbers of PDF files in a batch process " a highly efficient solution for companies with large numbers of documents from various sources.
