The Internet was made to facilitate sharing information, so it is difficult to stop people from being able to download files, especially if you want some people to be able to download them, but not just anybody or everybody.
If you have your information on a server in an unprotected form, there are several free tools available that will transfer a publicly accessible files onto someone’s hard drive where they can be examined at leisure. So if you want to stop illegal downloading you will need to keep the information you want to protect in a special environment so it is of no use to anyone without information from you, or you put it on a server that is not publicly accessible. But then you must be sure that the recipient is not going to misuse it.
Our secure downloads protect your files by requiring the user to login with an account that’s been granted access – or with a secure link that’s encrypted using information that has to match and verify the customer’s purchase.
