PR: Appligent's Redax Lite 3.5: Fast, Streamlined Redaction of Confidential Info from PDFs
Quickly and easily remove selected text
2 September 2003
Lansdowne, PA -- Appligent, Inc., a leading provider of PDF-related software and creator of Redax, the only software application that removes sensitive and private information from Portable Document Format (PDF) files, today launched Redax Lite 3.5, an easy-to-deploy, streamlined version of Redax geared towards legal, healthcare and business communities.
Enterprises and litigators are facing mounting pressure to keep sensitive employee and client information private when releasing documents for compliance, discovery or other purposes. Hidden text left in documents has resulted in several embarrassing disclosures in the last year, including the DC sniper case and UK's Iraq weapons dossier inquiry. Anyone who must share documents outside the enterprise runs the risk of divulging sensitive content if proper precautions aren't taken. In addition, companies in the health care industry are reorganizing their document management systems to comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), which require the protection of patients' medical records.
Redax Lite 3.5 offers these businesses and organizations the ability to quickly and easily remove selected text from PDF documents while maintaining compliance with HIPAA and the Privacy Act. Redax Lite 3.5 is a streamlined version of Redax at a much lower price point. Many companies need redaction without the extra features of Redax, which offers palettes of exemption codes required for government compliance with Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.
"Redax Lite 3.5 is ideal for those organizations who need quick, permanent redaction," says Virginia Gavin, President of Appligent. "Information privacy and security policy are increasingly important for everyone and are required for HIPAA compliance. Current word processors only hide information, and the text often remains in the file. Acrobat plus Redax Lite ensures that all data is deleted and unrecoverable."
Redax Lite 3.5 is a plug-in for Adobe(R) Acrobat versions 5.0 and higher and is available for Windows. The software retails for $199 with volume discounts available and can be ordered online at www.appligent.com. It is also available on the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) schedule at www.gsaadvantage.gov.
