Secure Document Exchange Across Industries

Risks from document metadata and unsecured documents

The majority of businesses, whatever market or industry they may be in, use office applications (word processors, spreadsheets, slide shows etc) and email every working day. Only a small portion of these businesses are aware that they are at risk of leaking sensitive information when they send electronic documents.

To aid collaboration in authoring documents, office suites store a large amount of metadata, information about the document, with the document itself. Whilst of huge benefit when used during collaborative authoring, this can, and has, proved costly when sent out unintentionally.

3BView helps businesses across industries to counter this threat by seamlessly stripping out metadata or converting to secured PDF be it for documents attached to an email or documents stored in a Content or Document Management system.

Use of StarOffice, or NeoOffice

The cost of office suite licences is being lowered by many businesses worldwide by adopting StarOffice or in all or part of their organisation. 3BView helps these businesses address interoperability issues with Microsoft Office users by seamlessly and automatically converting documents to and from OpenDocument format, the format underlying these office suites.
