Redax Enterprise Server


Rapid and Accurate Redaction of Large Volumes of PDF Files

Protect and Secure Sensitive Information for Collections of PDF Files

If you have a large volume of PDF files that need to be redacted to remove sensitive or private information, Redax Enterprise Server can make the process easier and more accurate.

Redax Enterprise Server can be used as part of your redaction workflow process.  Using watched folders, documents can be preprocessed on the server to find list of key words and phrases.  Preset patterns and regular expressions can be used to locate information such as Social Security Numbers, Account numbers, URLs, e-mail addresses and more. The marked documents can be reviewed before committing to the final redaction.

The software may be integrated into any PDF document workflow, with or without our Redax plugin for Adobe® Acrobat® (standard or professional).

The simplest way to run Redax Enterprise Server is through the watched folders functionality.

The RedaxESconfig application creates an XML parameter file used by Redax Enterprise Server to configure properties for the watched folders. These folders can be mapped network drives; providing “drag and drop” simplicity for any user.

Integrators may choose to dynamically generate XML parameter files from Perl, Java, PHP, VBScript, or any shell script, or operate Redax Enterprise Server via scripts for multistage or multicore processing.
