Know that you’ve redacted any confidential 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.

Ideal for compliance and disclosure processes, Objective Redact quickly and easily redacts information, no matter how large or complex your documents are.
