We have released a new version of our data leak prevention software, cleanDocs. The new version is available for immediate download and purchase.
cleanDocs 2.2 integrates with NetDocuments, the leading cloud-based content management and security platform for law firms and corporate legal and compliance departments, to enable users to clean documents of metadata. Removing document metadata minimizes the risk of data leaks when sharing files outside of NetDocuments.
DocsCorp Co-Founder and President Dean Sappey encouraged NetDocuments users to adopt the new integration and cautioned them against complacency when managing document metadata. “Metadata is a data protection risk most people aren’t aware of. The most important thing to know is it can lead to inadvertent leaks and compliance breaches. And, without metadata management, every email you send could be putting you at risk of severe financial penalties and professional damage under new laws and regulations.”
“NetDocuments’ global network of certified services and technology partners continue to create value-added integrations built on the NetDocuments platform to enhance the user experience and solve specific and workflow process challenges,” stated Leonard Johnson, SVP of Products & Partnerships at NetDocuments. The cleanDocs 2.2 integration with NetDocuments is an example of doing exactly that – maintaining a robust and secure solution for document-level metadata cleaning while making it intuitive and seamless for the end user experience.”
More to data leak prevention than metadata management
Metadata is a serious risk, but it is not the only one when emailing documents externally. The major source of data leaks globally is human error: emailing the wrong person, attaching the wrong document, or a combination of both. cleanDocs addresses this by requiring users to confirm recipients and attachments as correct, which are then cleaned of metadata and sent.
