Whereas Secure Image and CopySafe offer protection of the image/content once downloaded to the visitor's browser, Link Protect will protect the links to your images and page content from direct download, search programs and other illegal linking activity.
Link Protect is a web-based software for administration and protection of page links.
Here are some key features of "Link Protect":
· Prevent unauthorized access to your web images and content.
· Check that the call for your image(s) is from an authorized site.
· Eliminate bandwidth abuse completely.
· Record the user details and visits to the protected content.
Your protected content is stored in a folder only known to Link Protect. When a link is clicked or a call made for the page through Link Protect, the software will check that the call is from an authorized site. If the referring address is not listed as an authorized site, a default image is displayed instead of the content.
Essentially, the image on the server remains completely safe until it is legally downloaded, with your authorization. Pages or images linked with Link Protect do not reveal direct links to search engines and grab software that then use the links to locate content.
