Vuzit (pronounced views-it) is a Philadelphia-based software company that is addressing the need for a universal, yet enterprise-level, method for sharing, viewing and controlling documents, images and other sensitive content on the web.

Organizations are increasingly faced with the technical complexity, legal liabilities and risks associated with sharing documents containing sensitive information online, such as financial records, business contracts, copyrighted material and medical data. Regulatory bodies and organizations are clamoring for better control and monitoring over their valuable information. At the same time, the Internet and the advent of products such as the PDF file, are making document distribution easier, but less secure.

The Vuzit family of products addresses these needs, with products built for the small business as well as the multinational giant. The Vuzit DocuPub Platform is a robust, standards-based set of APIs, Web Services and libraries that enable you to embed over 40 different file types in your website or application. The Vuzit Platform contains dozens of features to help control how documents and content are accessed online. Vuzit SecureVu, available mid-2009, allows you superior distribution control over documents in and out of the corporate firewall.

Vuzit DocuPub Platform

Vuzit’s flagship product is the Vuzit DocuPub Platform, which enables universal electronic document sharing, distribution control, and document auditing and statistics.

Architecturally, the Vuzit DocuPub Platform is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) system. It utilizes web services and AJAX technology to create a best of breed platform which allows you to embed over 40 different file types in your website or application. Our standards-based architecture allows for easy integration and more development flexibility than with Adobe Flash-based document sharing and viewing options.

Vuzit SecureVu

Available mid-2009

Vuzit SecureVu is a feature-rich application built on the Vuzit DocuPub Platform which helps organizations manage the life-cycle of document distribution in and out of the corporate firewall to meet strict access control, document auditing, and compliance requirements. Vuzit SecureVu allows you to easily email registered documents to internal or external recipients without exposing the original file. Business users can define access rights and functional restrictions by recipient or recall emailed documents without leaving a trace of the original. Document owners also have access to reports detailing document access and usage, down to the page level.
