Informative Graphics Corporation (IGC), a leader in viewing, collaboration and redaction technology, today announced that its Redact-It® Desktop, a solution for intelligently removing sensitive content and privacy information from documents, received very favorable marks from Law.com’s legal technology editor, Sean Doherty. In his March 25, 2009 article, “Redact It With Redact-It Desktop,” Doherty states that, “Redact-It Desktop made it easy for me to remove sensitive content and privacy information from documents and email messages.”
The review praised Redact-It Desktop’s ease of use and simplicity for applications that need to make use of macros and templates to enhance redaction automation processes. This is especially valuable for sites looking to include intelligent electronic redaction as an important part of the document management and eDiscovery process. According to Doherty, “…IGC included handy scripts to semi-automate the process and provided an easy view of it from a simple, well-designed user interface.”
Doherty concluded his review by stating, “I found Redact-It very easy to use with highly configurable ways to automate the redaction of multiple documents. And it supports all the file formats that my clients and I use on a regular basis. Especially considering it’s worth in time-saving features, I consider the cost of $195 per user to be a bargain.”
“Organizations that face litigation are often at great risk due to improper electronic redaction,” said Gary Heath, CEO of IGC. “eDiscovery requirements and directives in the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure are driving an increased need for document sharing. Yet, with privacy and attorney-client privilege laws that mandate protection for confidential information, organizations need to take effective redaction steps to assure that confidential information is not inadvertently released. Redact-It Desktop is an easy to use solution which helps automate this process with accuracy and reliability.”
About Redact-It Desktop
Redact-It Desktop is the first low-cost desktop application to offer comprehensive redaction and verification tools. It offers everything from drawing a box around areas to be redacted, to intelligent pattern recognition to find and redact information within a document. It also has many built-in macros to redact privacy information such as names, phone numbers, social security numbers, and more (users can also create custom search macros for specific needs). Reverse redaction (also called “peek through”), step-by-step verification tools, extensive logging and the ability to record reusable redaction scripts are just a few more examples of its capabilities.
