Security breach[edit]

In October 2020, Nitro suffered a data breach; user and document databases (including from customers such as Fortune 500 companies) were stolen and offered for sale on the dark web. The company acknowledged the incident and said it was investigating it.[6][7]

Subscription services include cloud-based user management, deployment and analytics tools. Nitro also manages several free document conversion sites.
