wordsApi = WordsApi(api_client)

#upload file to aspose cloud storage
storageApi.PutCreate(Path="SampleBlankWordDocument.docx", file="../../data/"+ "SampleBlankWordDocument.docx")

#invoke Aspose.Words SDK to protect a word document
    response = wordsApi.PutProtectDocument(name="SampleBlankWordDocument.docx", body=body, filename="SampleBlankWordDocument_Protected.docx")

    if response.Status == "OK":
        print "Document has been protected successfully"
        #download updated document from storage server
        response = storageApi.GetDownload(Path="SampleBlankWordDocument_Protected.docx")
        outfilename = "c:/temp/" + "SampleBlankWordDocument_Protected.docx"
        with open(outfilename, 'wb') as f:
