Soda PDF: Soon to Be the Most Secure PDF Application

MONTREAL--(Marketwire - Nov 21, 2012) - LULU SOFTWARE, the publisher of Soda® PDF, a portable document format (PDF) editing and creation application, today announced that they have entered into an agreement with Glasswall Solutions Limited to offer its patented Glasswall™ technology customers the most advanced and secure PDF application in the world.

Those familiar with PDF documents containing threats, viruses, Trojans and many more security issues are well aware of the difficulties that are facing all the PDF application publishers to stop these malicious files from infecting your computer. Soda PDF, known as the Smart & Simple PDF application is soon to release a new version that will include a security layer that prevents any threats from infecting the user's computer and/or environment.

Soda PDF 5 Business Edition will be released with new security features benefiting from the Glasswall Solutions partnership. Soda PDF will break a file down, analyze it at the byte level and pass it through the patented Glasswall™ technology and its intelligent management dashboard. Soda PDF will return a sanitized, policy compliant and totally secure file containing only 'known good' data.

While Soda PDF Business Edition is adding this breakthrough security component to its 256-bit permission based document encryption and digital signature; it will continue to offer consumers and businesses its unique 3D view page rendering, the ability to create pdf documents easily and quickly, accurate conversion to Word, powerful and intuitive editing features along with its management console.

Soda PDF comes in different editions (Soda PDF Standard, Soda PDF Professional and Soda PDF PRO + OCR) to meet the specific needs of all PDF users. Along with its new Security Layer, Soda PDF 5 Business Edition benefits from a new look, improved layer management and form creation, additional tools for reviewing and annotating documents as well as support for the Tiff file format for PDF creation.

"File exploits and security issues in PDF documents are constantly increasing and constitute one of the most common security vulnerabilities for companies"' said Eric Gareau, Chief Executive Officer, LULU Software. "Our objective has been to offer an answer, an added layer that other PDF application publishers don't. We always believed that PDF users wanted simple, yet powerful and cost effective solutions; we thought that addressing their security issues would convince them!"

Interested users will soon be able to download the 30 day free trial of Soda PDF 5 Business Edition. To see what it has to offer, please visit: or for more information visit
