AutoRedact Plug-in

By EverMap Company Free to try

Developer's Description

AutoRedact plug-in is an add-on to Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Acrobat Professional software that provides a complete set of tools and operations for redacting various types of information from PDF documents. AutoRedact is a "true redacting" solution that deletes sensitive text, annotations, text form fields, vector graphics, and image information from PDF documents making them completely safe for distribution. The software contains many powerful operations and tools that increase productivity and provide powerful methods for automated document redacting and multi-user redacting workflows. Batch processing features allow redacting of many documents at once without human intervention and can significantly simplify redacting workflow by combining several processing steps into a single one. AutoRedact plug-in adds professional redacting functionality to Adobe Acrobat. Software adds "Redacting" menu and "Redacting" toolbar to the Acrobat user interface to provide full access to all features of AutoRedact plug-in. The redacting workflow generally consists of 3 steps: markup, redacting and final review. User uses a variety of manual and automated redacting tools to mark up specific text and designate areas on the pages that need to be redacted. Once this step is completed and all confidential information has been selected for redacting then actual document redacting is performed. Text, form fields, annotations, and images in the PDF document are redacted by completely removing designated information from the document. Redacted characters are replaced with a designated "redacting" character, exemption codes are optionally added to document to indicate the locations and reasons why a certain information has been removed. AutoRedact comes with ready-to-use exemption code library that covers Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and Privacy Act of 1974. The visual appearance of the redacted documents can be customized by selecting different colors, font styles and sizes. Redacting bars can be optionally added to the document to give it a traditional, "censored" look. Please note that redacting bars are used for visualization purpose only, they are not used to cover any content on the page. Information is always physically removed from the document for security purposes. The software features many automated methods that simplify finding and redacting textual information in the PDF documents. Specific words and phrases can be automatically found and marked up for redacting using user-specific redacting dictionaries. Text patterns such as Social Security Numbers, Employer Identification Numbers, phone and fax numbers, email addresses, dates, postal addresses can be automatically selected for redacting. User can specify custom or use variety of built-in text patterns. Custom redacting templates can be applied to a document to redact specific areas on the pages. This method is useful for processing official forms and documents that typically place specific information at predefined locations on the page. The plug-in maintains HTML processing log for each document that keeps track of all operations performed on a document for record keeping. Software comes with all necessary tools and editors for designing custom exemption codes and redacting dictionaries. Please review feature details below for more information.
