AYRSHIRE, SCOTLAND, May 18, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- LockLizard have released LockLizard Flashguard Flash Security their latest DRM product to secure Adobe shockwave flash (swf) files.
Flashguard is a unique flash protection product allowing companies that publish or sell Adobe flash files (SWF files) to ensure complete protection of their intellectual property. It prevents decompiling of flash files and controls what users can do with the displayed content.
Flashguard secures flash files against decompiling, unauthorized viewing, copying, sharing, modifying, saving, screen grabbing and printing. The source files (FLA files - multimedia objects, images and scripts that make up an SWF file) are always protected against editing and misuse. It provides the usual DRM controls such as setting an end date for the use of a file (useful if a product is being rented rather than sold) and includes the ability to remove licenses in real-time if the recipient is misusing the product.
Flash Player Security ensures your flash files cannot be compromised by other applications, browser flaws, bugs, or the common Adobe flash security issues.
Flashguard is not an obfuscation product but a fully fledged Flash DRM protection system. Obfuscation products don't actually encrypt source code, they just alter the code and structure, often causing flash files to stop functioning correctly or at all. Flashguard completely encrypts the source code (with AES 256 bit encryption) preventing programs decompiling your SWF files to FLA files. Your source code is not altered in any way - ensuring your flash files continue working as before they were protected. In addition Flashguard controls who can view your flash files, how long or how many times they can be viewed, and whether printing is allowed.
"The introduction of Flashguard allows many organizations that were previously unwilling to commit their IPR into flash because of security concerns, to move ahead," said Dr Mathews. "Many companies have realized the potential of flash as an interactive medium, but have been afraid to publish content in this format as there has been no means of protecting it. Now, more than ever before, the new technologies have to earn their promise of lowering cost and increasing profit. But without giving everything away."
