In 1993 the Portable Document Format was created. It instantly changed the way we are working with our files. In no time, it became the number one file format for sharing and viewing documents. And today it’s still in the lead when it comes to working with information and sensitive data.
There is one main reason for its success. PDF format is the most secure document viewer out there. But that security comes with the price.
