PGP bolsters Adobe support with PDF encryption

Security vendor adds support for Adobe PDF to e-mail encryption gateway.

PGP Wednesday announced it is adding support for Adobe PDF attachments to its PGP Universal Gateway Email for encrypting e-mail and attachments.

The PGP Universal Gateway Email currently includes options for securing messages through a Web e-mail interface. In addition to adding PDF support, PGP says it is adding a function called "certified delivery," which can record and log that a message has been successfully delivered to the recipient.

The next edition of the PGP gateway will be able to "take the mail coming in and convert it into an encrypted PDF," says John Dasher, director of product management. "There's an added password, and the person receiving it types it in to decrypt it."

To make use of the encrypted PDF capability, the e-mail recipient will need to have a Web browser and standard PDF reader such as Adobe Acrobat. Support for PDF attachments and the certified delivery function will be available before the end of the year. Pricing has not been announced.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
