From Smart PC Solutions:
A leaked document can compromise trade secrets and threaten company security. But did you know that even a document that you send or publish may also contain sensitive information that may harm your privacy and company security? Every time you create a document in a Microsoft Office application such as Word or Excel, it is automatically and compulsory tagged with extra information. All documents are assigned properties that list the document's author, organization name, document change and reviewing history, any comments made by the different editors, editing time, and so on. This information can be useful when working with documents in a workgroup, but may cause unwanted problems should it become available to a third party, putting your company in an embarrassing situation or even causing financial risk. A line or a paragraph of text that contains sensitive information, even if it is cut, deleted or overtyped, may still be stored in the document's metadata under certain circumstances, such as if text change tracking is enabled. Do you want all the notes made by your workgroup members while editing a presentation made publicly available? Document Trace Remover checks your company workflow, including Microsoft Word documents and Excel spreadsheets for unwanted private information that may infringe your privacy and threaten company security. Document Trace Remover discovers all types of meta-information and offers you an easy way to remove any hidden data from your documents. When this is done the documents no longer contain a single trace of infringing information. Batch mode is available to quickly clean multiple documents. Make Document Trace Remover part of your routine workflow. Run Document Trace Remover every time before publishing or sending the document out of your company to ensure highest level of privacy and security of your workflow.
