It also brings new and unique features to the table, that was specially designed to allow developers and businesses to conveniently process documents that contain Sensitive Data, such as:

  • Sensitive Data Analyzer – Analyzes and scans input documents (PDF, TIFF, scans, images) for potentially sensitive data and creates a report with details about sensitive data categories and sensitive data stats.
  • Sensitive Data Detector – Detects and highlights sensitive data based on pre-defined policies/patterns based on selected sensitive data categories
  • Sensitive Data Remover – Detects and removes (can also optionally mark erased areas with black ink) areas with sensitive that are matching selected sensitive data categories or policies/patterns
  • Sensitive Data Remover (with manual mode) – Removes and optionally blacks out selected areas in multi-paged documents or policies/patterns
