Web Browser PDF Viewer and Editor

Portal is a full PDF desktop editing application embedded right in your browser.  Implemented as an ASP.NET control, Portal eliminates the need for client-side PDF software.  It gives you the maximum security possible and allows you to dictate where the PDF comes from and where it goes.  Taking just a few lines of code to integrate, Portal saves you a ton of development time and gives you complete flexibility over what the user can and cannot do.  With its server farm technology, Portal scales with you, yet has no per-user or per-document fees.
