cleanDocs works well with plug-ins
Ivo Nikolov, IT Director at Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg, explains how his staff use cleanDocs at the firm. According to Ivo, cleanDocs works well with other applications and plug-ins and is the best metadata tool they have ever used.
Accounting documents and forms contain confidential and private information that must be secured when sent online or via email. cleanDocs automatically removes any comments, Track Changes, hidden information, or embedded objects such as an Excel spreadsheet to minimize information leakage.
Metadata in Financial Services documents can be both embarrassing and damaging when leaked.
cleanDocs ensures embedded objects, hidden cells or text, Track Changes, and other file properties and summary information is removed before the file is sent outside the firm. Metadata that acts as clues to a person’s identity should be kept secure. If it is leaked it becomes a compliance breach, whether it was intentional or not. When it comes to document metadata management, prevention is the best cure.
Governments around the world hold personal data on their citizens. More and more they need to reassure them that they can safeguard this data, particularly when it is distributed electronically. cleanDocs scrubs away metadata attached to a file before it is sent outside of a government organization, regardless of the type of device used. The rise of communications from mobile devices makes this more important than ever
Lawyers understand perhaps more than any other professionals the dangers of metadata leakage. Lawyers have a duty to protect client information so documents must be cleaned of metadata before they are distributed electronically. cleanDocs removes metadata attached to a file, including authors, Track Changes, and time spent working on it. It also removes embedded objects like spreadsheets, so users don’t send their full billing information out accidentally.
Consider also how comments and Track Changes inadvertently left in a document might prove embarrassing or damage your client’s case. cleanDocs prompts you to resolve them before sending.
Document metadata might be information you do not want made public. Certainly, Life Science companies would want to protect themselves from inadvertent leakages given the sensitive information that may be contained in clinical trial documentation.
cleanDocs ensures that documents submitted by Life Science companies do not contain hidden metadata, such as comments and Track Changes. cleanDocs gives them the control they need over their regulatory content.
Resources and Energy
Collaborating on documents can generate a lot of metadata – commonly comments and Track Changes. Emailing these documents with the metadata still in place could be embarrassing or potentially damaging to an engineering, gas, oil or utility company. It could be information it doesn’t want competitors or the general public to know.
"The cleanDocs price point and ability to deploy on a smaller scale meant I could afford the same level of technology as the big firms, and offer the same level of service. I could protect their data and meet industry standards."
