Patented server-based document metadata cleaning

We've all heard the horror stories of information hidden in metadata accidentally leaking out of businesses, resulting in embarrassing, dangerous and very costly, easily-avoided issues. According to a survey conducted by Litéra, 40% of all e-mails are opened by a mobile device or access mechanisms such as webmail, and 24% of all business e-mails sent each working day have files attached. We have found that even for companies with server-based metadata removal, 10% of all e-mails going out of a company have unscrubbed attachments.

Metadact®-e reduces financial risk and protects your company’s most valuable asset – its reputation.  This patented, enterprise-grade, server-based metadata solution previews, cleans and converts documents in Outlook, Web Access, tablets and smartphones, as well as desktop-based documents.  Whether a Microsoft Office, PDF, image, ZIP file, or even an embedded e-mail attachment, Metadact-e ensures all metadata is removed, including hidden information such as Excel formulas, PowerPoint
speaker notes, comments, and PDF Properties.

Metadact-e 3.0 Mobile Alerts automatically notify users if an attachment they've just sent needs attention. A link to a mobile webpage allows users to adjust processing options as needed.

Enterprise-grade, server-based metadata management
Metadata management on the server offering protection for all users, including webmail, tablet, smart phone, and desktop users.

Clean and convert files
Metadata management on the server offering protection for all users and devices, including webmail, tablet, smart phone, and desktop users. Processing can be seamless and invisible to the user, ensuring compliance and saving valuable time, or it can be configured to give users limited control over metadata cleaning as they send. Fully scalable architecture for any size organization and environment that supports failover (redundancy) and load balancing (faster processing).
Easy management
Save administrative time with quick and easy set-up and administrative tools. Administrators can generate a variety of reports to monitor performance, balance loads and optimize servers. Customizable notifications and email alerts enables administrators to customize the text for notifications received by both users and IT staff about Metadact-e email processing.

Intelligent content clean
With “Intelligent Content Clean,” replace text in Microsoft Word documents that matches a specific pattern.  For example, identification numbers (state ID, Social Security, or National Insurance numbers) can be replaced with anonymous characters such as “XXX-XX-XXXX.”  After processing, you can see a detailed report of every occurrence.

Enterprise-grade, scalable architecture
Fully scalable architecture for any size organization and environment that supports failover (redundancy) and load balancing (faster processing).

Mobile Alerts
Allows mobile users to interactively set certain cleaning options without having to remember subject line tags. Metadacte can be easily configured to send an alert requesting confirmation about how to process alertable metadata. The mobile user can quickly set their options via the browser on their mobile device.

Admin tools so you can “set it and forget it” and easily manage the system
Saves administrative time with quick and easy set-up and administrative tools.  Administrators can also view simple reports to distribute the processing load and optimize servers.

Sent items and archived e-mails reflect what the recipient receives (i.e., cleaned attachments in Exchange 2007 and 2010 environments).

Integrates with active directory
Active Directory database leveraged for user and/or group cleaning policy settings, allowing administrators to easily maintain the system and harden the perimeter.

Integration for Outlook 2010 and 2013
The ribbon UI delivers an intuitive and seamless experience that also reduces training time.

Creation of custom policies and settings
Control of individual user’s ability to change or override corporate policies and settings.

Administration choice of types of metadata to clean
Administrators can allow users or groups granular control to override specific cleaning settings and/or exclude documents from cleaning altogether.

Viewing of detailed reports via the web
Ability to review metadata detected in documents on the Metadact-e website; see types of metadata removed and number of instances; balance load and optimize servers with simple reports on latency, message size, number of attachments, etc.

Preview metadata
View the metadata present in any document in detail, as well as a summary of the “risk” level of the content based on multiple variables, including metadata quantity, type, and location.

Desktop and Batch cleaning
Clean desktop documents (from document management systems or local folder) individually or in batch process mode using optional “On Demand” functionality.

Returns desktop to user immediately
On-the-server processing, allowing users to proceed to the next task as processing occurs.
