Img redact automate

Don’t hope you got it right. Know you did.

Know that you’ve redacted every single word, phrase or number.

It’s an awful feeling when, after manually redacting a document, you can’t help but wonder if you’ve got every word. Yes, “find and replace” works, but only to a certain point. Hidden metadata may still be lurking in your document.

Protect yourself and your organisation from accidental disclosure. Objective Redact is smart, automated redaction software that makes redaction much faster, internal review much easier, and keeps your most sensitive information safe.


Img redact automate


Time-saving tools to redact single or multiple documents.

Redact groups of documents

Save time with Default Folders. Specify an input and an output folder and redact a group of documents efficiently.

Redact all file types

Redact directly from your authoring application; Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel, as well as other formats such as email, PDF and more.

Remove all hidden information

Permanently remove all text content marked for redaction, including hidden metadata such as authors, creation dates and other attributes that can be stored in a file.

Review & Report

Img redact easy to use reports

Review & Report

Make an impact on your internal processes with review and reporting features.

Send for review before redaction

Circulate a working copy for review amongst your team. When approved, finalise the redaction.

The original file is never modified

Objective Redact always creates a working copy, so the original is unchanged. It also generates a final redacted copy and an optional audit copy.

Easy compliance reporting

Built-in governance to produce reports at the touch of a button – what was redacted, types of information, number of instances or pages and the exemptions codes used.

This product includes existing user experience functionalities and behaviours. Evolved user interface will be available in the future.
