Typically, an Adobe Content Server based DRM system would run a company tens of thousands of dollars in the first year alone. The software license alone costs $10.000, and the costs for deploying, integrating and running all the software and hardware involved would at least double that cost. Since this system is the most widely used DRM solution for eBooks out there, many have not been able to get into the eBook business without being locked into a single device or vendor. EditionGuard aims to change that by providing Adobe Content Server as a hosted and fully managed solution with extra features and capabilites added on top.
EditionGuard provides very affordable and well defined pricing plans, accessible documentation and stellar technical support. It is geared toward eBook sales operations of all sizes who do not wish to set aside a large budget for acquiring, deploying and maintaining their own Adobe Content Server DRM system for securely distributing their ePub and PDF eBooks.
