RMS Viewer enables Mac computers to consume Microsoft Windows Rights Management protected documents recieved by mail or any other application.
IMPORTANT: This application requires connectivity to an RMS Rendering Server running in your corporate network. Please read the requirements section below.
Windows Information Rights Management protects typical office documents using strong encryption and allows the use of these documents only on dedicated enrolled Desktop Computers. But because of the nature of these documents it is critical for a corporation to enable its employees to consume the documents also on corporate enabled mobile devices and Computers running Max OSX.
The RMS Viewer App registers itself to the file types available for RMS and when rights management protection is detected, the mobile app sends the protected document to a RMS Rendering server hosted in the corporate network. The RMS Rendering Server will decrypt and convert the document if the user has permissions to view the document. The converted document will be received by the mobile app and displayed within an app viewer, which will not allow to print or forward the protected document.
Documents can be stored on the device with strong encryption, in order to be viewed later even when offline.

Ratings and Reviews
App requires you to enter your RMS server address and your associated Active Directory credentials. Typcially because RMS is a small-scale solution (enterprise, not internet grade) your RMS server will be inside your corporate network. You will need the host name or IP address of that server and to have an account that works on the server.
Unfortunately RMS is really an attempt by Microsoft to push nonstandard proprietary technology. Fortunately that approach does not work well on the Internet, (internet community tends to reject proprietary one trick ponies) but Mac users in the older Microsoft centric organizations will find this useful. There is also a version for iOS.
I was hopeful to use this application to open XPS files on my new MacBook Pro. Installation was fine but on opening the application the first time (after double clicking on an XPS file) it prompted for a server, user name and password. I was initially confused as to what it was asking for, but figured it must be asking for an SMTP server and my email user name and password. I couldn't say if that was a correct assumption, as using Gmail as the server I was unable to successfully enter the fields. The only error message? "Error: No Error.".
Require a server and user account
They charge unclear amount for server access. Instruction is not clear how much do I need to pay to who. I am deleting this app.
