Digital Rights Management (DRM) is a way to protect copyrights for digital media. This approach includes the use of technologies that limit the copying and use of copyrighted works and proprietary software.

In a way, digital rights management allows publishers or authors to control what paying users can do with their works. For companies, implementing digital rights management systems or processes can help to prevent users from accessing or using certain assets, allowing the organization to avoid legal issues that arise from unauthorized use. Today, DRM is playing a growing role in data security.

How Does DRM Work?

Most DRM solutions use some form of cryptographic encryption to protect content. Encryption is a technology that conceals information by altering it according to a secret pattern.
