Toppan Forms Launches "SecurePosting" Encrypted Delivery Service that Enables Secure File Management Limiting Viewing Count and Period

October 28, 2014

Information Management Company Toppan Forms Co., Ltd. (Toppan Forms hereunder) will be launching the "SecurePosting" delivery service that limits viewing counts and period of encrypted PDF and image file.
Currently, companies are delivering files that include personal information to devices such as tablets to be viewed outside the company. The delivery operation and management are left to users that cause risk issues related to information leakage such as forwarding file to other devices or unnecessarily keeping the viewed file in the device. "SecurePosting" solves these issues by putting various limits to the operation and management of secure file. To view the file, it is necessary to login on the dedicated viewer app with a unique ID and password. The device is verified by sending the device ID to the server that limits the file downloading only to those approved. It also manages viewing count and period on the server side. The file is automatically deleted leaving no cash when it reaches beyond the setting properties. In addition, by using the GPS feature, viewing area can be restricted to particular area.
"SecurePosting" is based on secure data generation software co-developed by SciencePark Corporation (Head Office; 3-1649-2 Iriya Zama Kanagawa Pref. Representative Director: Koichiro Shoji) that develops security software with software developed by Toppan Forms.
