Watch how easy it is to clean potentially harmful metadata from a Word document using cleanDocs
Reduce the risk of a data breach by removing metadata
Document metadata hidden in Microsoft Office files can reveal more information than what is typed on the page. It can tell the reader who created the document, how long was spent editing it, and where the document is saved. Metadata that could potentially identify someone must be kept secure. If not properly protected, leaked metadata can lead to significant fines under global regulations like the GDPR.
Use cleanDocs as part of your data leak prevention strategy to removes more than 100 metadata types, keeping sensitive information protected. Clean Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF, and PDF/A documents in milliseconds, from the desktop or from directly within the application.
