Redaction alerts in cleanDocs
Communicate securely when you redact text from a PDF and send it via cleanDocs. It detects and alerts you to any redaction errors in the document, so you can fix them before sensitive information is leaked.
cleanDocs is more than just metadata removal
Sending secure emails takes more than metadata removal alone. With cleanDocs, you're also protected against another common cause of unintentional data leaks: redaction errors.
After you redact text from a PDF or Word document and attach it to your email, cleanDocs will check that the redaction hasn't been applied wrongly. Sometimes, redaction is attempted by drawing a black box over text, or changing the font color to white so it blends into the background. This isn't true redaction, since that text is still there.
cleanDocs will alert you to improper redaction methods before your email is sent, so you have the chance to fix it before it causes a data leak. Once corrected, re-attach your document, remove any sensitive metadata that is present, and Send.
The safest way to redact text from a PDF
A PDF redaction tool is the most surefire way to safely redact text from a PDF. It permanently removes the text from the document, so the redaction can't be reversed or uncovered because it's no longer in the file. Press below to see how PDF redaction works in pdfDocs.
