3BOpenDoc - Clean Metadata from your ODF files

3BOpenDoc is a scalable server based solution that cleans metadata from OpenDocument files.

Businesses around the world have been put on high alert about transmitting stray information in documents that may be detrimental to business transactions, security or reputation. In the last 12 months alone, multiple events were highlighted in the media concerning the leak of confidential information by the US and UK governments via Microsoft Word Track Changes.

One instance erupted into a major UN security issue.

Small businesses to large multi-national organisations need to ensure that the right content reaches the intended recipient without the threat of information leaks via word processing, email or other document technology. At least some - if not all - of this 'hidden data' needs to be cleaned or 'scrubbed' from documents.

The majority of instances of the leakage of sensitive or confidential information through this hidden data that have made the headlines are through Microsoft Office and PDF files. However OpenDocument files also pose the same risk.

Email

Sitting alongside your organisation’s email server, 3BOpenDoc can be configured via a set of rules to clean all email attachments that are in ODF or Microsoft Office format prior to forwarding them on to the destination. The rules can be set up by user and/or group and can apply to emails going outside of your organisation and/or internally within your organisation.

Business information management systems

3BOpenDoc can be integrated into your document management system (DMS) or content management system (CMS) and configured so that a document is cleaned or converted automatically at the time of import to or export from the system. The format of the document can be configured to be dependent on the state of the document in the system and the user who is exporting the document.
