Secure Your Intellectual Property with an Integrated Global Data Exchange Platform
Have you been affected by the $50-60 billion dollar loss of intellectual property that occurs across the globe yearly?
Intellectual Property (IP) theft is on the rise. If it has yet to affect you, then it inevitably will in the near future. In a globalized manufacturing economy, many companies establish joint ventures or other long term development partnerships to exchange data for product development processes. Suppliers, vendors and other parties dedicated to product development are located all across the world. How can you be sure that your intellectual property stays secure as it traverses the globe?
Whether your IP consists of CAD files, industrial designs or patents, you need a platform for data exchange that handles transferring files in addition to controlling, transferring, and documenting the entire data exchange process. PROSTEP can ensure that your data stays secure throughout the process by transferring large engineering files at the highest level of encryption.

The CAD data used in manufacturing uses notoriously large files , making it cumbersome for you to share your data downstream. Because manufacturing is done on a global scale, it becomes a significant challenge to efficiently share secure CAD data with all partners, vendors and developers.
How can you protect your IP and share your data when you encounter incompatible systems and software, vastly different data standards, and restrictive IT administration rules?
You need a solution that transforms CAD into a "lightweight" representation - a .pdf file. When compared to full-fidelity CAD, a lightweight solution allows you to create a CAD representation within a PDF file of the necessary data. When you send a PDF instead of the entire CAD , you greatly reduce your risk for IP theft.
What more can you do with a .pdf?
A .pdf provides you with security, encryption, limits on printing, limits on how often the file can be opened and numerous other intelligent file management and security options.
