SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—February 2, 2009— At LegalTech New York 2009 (Feb. 2-4), Informative Graphics Corporation (IGC), a leader in content visualization, collaboration and redaction technology, today officially releases Redact-It® Desktop 1.1 for removal of sensitive content and privacy information such as social security numbers, names and phone numbers before making documents more widely available. The software dramatically reduces the time it takes to redact, review and release documents for public access, eDiscovery and other processes. Redact-It Desktop 1.1 applies powerful redaction capabilities to Microsoft Word, Outlook, PowerPoint, and Excel, the most widely used software programs in the world, while providing OCR (Optical Character Recognition) processing of documents to convert PDFs and TIFFs into text-searchable files. Redact-It never alters source files, saving the redacted renditions as easily distributable TIFF or PDF files.
“Extending the power of Redact-It to popular Microsoft programs people use across every industry was critically important,” said Gary Heath, President and CEO of IGC. “Privacy and attorney-client privilege laws mandate that attorneys, government officials and health care professionals ensure confidential information is not inadvertently released. With Redact-It Desktop 1.1, we've made it easy for them to securely remove information in documents they create and share every day.”
Redact-It Desktop is the first low-cost desktop application using pattern recognition to find and redact information within a document. It includes many built-in macros to redact privacy information such as names, phone numbers, social security numbers, driver license numbers, credit card numbers, birth dates and more. Users can also create custom search macros and scripts for specific needs like account or ID numbers. Redact-It also includes “Defined Area Redaction” (drawing a box around the area to be redacted), adding the ability to redact an entire page or range of pages. Combined with Redact-It’s “peek through” feature, this makes it easy to select limited areas to remain visible.
Key features of Redact-It 1.1 include:
A 15-day trial version is available at: www.redact-it.com/download/. The base version of Redact-It Desktop 1.1 is available immediately and priced at $195 with the OCR option available for an additional $49 USD.
Other members of the Redact-It family include Redact-It Enterprise Server for batch and automated redaction as part of workflow processes, and Redact-It for Kofax® Ascent Capture®, which works directly within the Kofax batch process to remove the data from selected redaction zones with associated OCR text, typically as files are bulk loaded into a document repository.
