The ArtistScope Browser is recommended for the most secure web site
The protection provided for web content by the ArtistScope Web Browser in comparison
to every other web browser is incomparable because popular web browsers are
designed for the very opposite of roles by exposing web content to every
copy/save method ever devised.
ASPS will provide the most secure copy protection imaginable, securing any media,
data and links displayed on the pages that you want to protect.

What is the ArtistScope Site Protection System (ASPS)?
The ArtistScope Site Protection System (ASPS) is a two-part solution
that provides the most secure web-viewing environment possible. The ArtistScope Web Browser
provides secure browser of all page media normally exposed by popular web
browsers. The ASPS server filter delivers pages as an encrypted stream that
cannot be read by any other browser or software tool.
As a standalone web browser, even delivering pages that have not been encrypted,
the ArtistScope Web Browser will close all avenues for exploit in any copy protection
solution, including those solutions provided by competitors and imitators of
Why use the ArtistScope Site Protection System (ASPS)?
Popular web browsers expose web page content and media in every way ever
devised. Allowing copy protected content to be displayed while using those
browsers can never be secure. The ASPS solution has been designed from end to
end without dependency on any third party resource to leave no margin to exploit.
ASPS pages leave the server in an encrypted stream to the ArtistScope browser. There is
nothing in between to exploit, not even from cache.
What is the
Unlike other secure browsers, the ArtistScope web browser is not a reskinned
clone of a popular browser. Consequently the ArtistScope browser does not
provide avenues for the exploit of protected content by enabling the
installation of add-ons that can be used to cloak, download or copy. Nor does it
provide any means to disable any add-ons or plugins so that a user can disable
How Does ASPS Work?
ASPS delivers web content from the server direct to the web browser in an
encrypted format that only the ArtistScope Web Browser can decode. The content on the
website does not need to be encrypted and there is no double-handling required to
prepare any web content for delivery via ASPS. This means that anything
delivered from a website, including database records, media and web pages
created on the fly using absolutely any programming language, will most securely
be delivered from server to the user's web browser without any opportunity of
copy, duplication or retrieval.
Websites can contain a mix of protected and public content (for search
engines and casual visitors) without any segregation. Pages designated for
protection only need to include additional meta-tags to set which protection
options to apply. When that tag is detected by the server it will be delivered
in encrypted form that only the ArtistScope browser can decode.
& Server Performance
There is no significant increase in load on a server when using the ASPS server
filter, unless the server is already using all of its available resources.
Browser performance may seem slower than normal browsers because of the
differences in caching and because the ArtistScope browser assembles a page before
display rather than display its parts as they download.
Encrypted pages need to be fully decrypted to interpret the protection options
included in the meta-tags and while a user changes view back and forward between
unprotected and protected windows delays will occur to ensure that "the gate is
properly open or closed".
ASPS Protection Options
ASPS protection can be applied site wide, to specific folders or to individual web pages only, and the protection applied can vary on each page. For example, you can allow a visitor to print a receipt but not copy it, or to save selected files to disk but not copy the page.
All types of media can be protected when you are using the ArtistScope Web Browser. In
fact, anything that can be displayed or embedded on a web page will be most
securely protected from all copying and saving, and this includes texts, images,
Flash and video, without requiring the encryption or alteration of the media in
- Allow/disallow screen capture
- Allow/disallow keyboard for web forms
- Allow/disallow printing and number of times printed
- Allow/disallow remote viewing
Since the release of version 2.0 ArtistScope browser, everyone can utilize ASPS
protection. To use ASPS server software a dedicated or virtual server is
required for the rights to install server software at system level. However
those who may only have a web site on a shared hosting server can use ASPS
The ASPS server software can be installed on all Windows and Linux servers.
Filter modules are available for all distributions, and because ArtistScope
programmers install it for you, you can be assured that your new ASPS
installation will be up and running to meet your schedule.
The ASPS Protected Hosting enables anyone with a web site to most securely
protect the whole of or any part of that site by mirroring its content from an
ASPS web server. Of course some measures are required to prevent direct access
to those protected parts by direct means, but if you are using any of the
popular CMS like Drupal, Joomla, Moodle or WordPress, that task becomes
extremely easy by installing the ASPS Check Referrer add-on.
ASPS & Third Party Web Solutions
Regardless of what software or programming language is used on
your web site, which type of server software, or whether it be for e-commerce,
online course, trade survey or copy protection provided by a third party, the
ArtistScope web browser will be most compatible to be your browser of choice where
content protection is paramount.
