Remove personal information and sensitive data from electronic documents definitively.
The DocuVieware Redaction tool allows you to permanently erase text, images, and other areas of your documents. An essential feature to help secure electronic documents and PDFs for your Web applications.
The word redaction comes from the legal domain and was first applied on physical documents, usually by blacking out portions of text in permanent ink, so the text underneath is not readable any longer.
Applied to electronic documents, and especially PDFs, redaction is the process of permanently removing visible text and graphics.
Not to be mistaken by black rectangle annotations, the redacted text or image cannot be retrieved once the redaction mark is burned into the document.
Why is Redaction necessary?
Many industries have a legal obligation to keep their data private, such as the Legal domain with judicial secrecy, the Healthcare sector with medical and professional confidentiality, and the Financial system, just to name a few.
But even for all other businesses or organizations, regulations exist at several levels to protect employees and customers:
GDPR in Europe
CNIL in France
California Consumer Privacy Act
Brazilian Landmark Privacy Law
and more to come.
