Redaction and Meta data stripping for email and web

SECURE Information Governance Platform

Redaction removes confidential information, ensuring that it cannot be read.



Why redact?  Adaptive Redaction, developed by Clearswift, scans email and web content - text, Microsoft Office, PDF and HTML files - automatically identifying and removing both the ‘visible’ and ‘invisible data’ which breaks policy  - credit card numbers, patient ids, Medicare numbers etc. - then continues to deliver to the intended recipient without ‘stopping and blocking’.

Why adaptive? Redaction is triggered according to your own security policies - any combination of content, recipient, sender  - making it an ‘adaptive’ process.

Why this is different

Unlike our competitors, the Secure Information Governance Platform contains in-house technology to extract information from files rather than relying upon 3rd party components to carry out the task.

This gives the unique ability to not only extract the text from a file but also to be able to remove or substitute information within the file and then to recreate the changed file. It is this in-house DCI technology which makes Adaptive Redaction possible.
