    Why would Corp IT disable Protected View?


      When I try to download a PDF from the internet, I get an error that I need to enable Protected View to open the PDF.  I tried enabling by going to edit->preferences-> security (enhanced), but it seems my corporate IT admins have disabled Protected View.  So, I'm unable to open the document.


      Protected view sounds like it provides additional security, so why would the IT policy prevent it from being enabled?  Are there still vulnerabilities that can get out of the protected view "sandbox"?
