Intelligent Document Solutions

3BView provides innovative solutions for the secure exchange of electronic communications and documents, and for document transformation. In the Information Leak Prevention (ILP) market, 3BView has the most advanced technology and the easiest to use solutions.

Information Leak Prevention

3BView’s products address the challenge of data loss prevention from electronic communications and documents, avoiding sensitive information getting into the wrong hands, and ensuring organisations are compliant with regulations and legislation such as Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) and Basel II. Based on our 3BClassify platform, our products use advanced policy-based processing to monitor and control outbound electronic communications, for example to stop confidential documents being emailed outside a company or to remove metadata accidentally left in a document.

3BView’s technology sits alongside your email server, integrates with your other business systems, or is provided as a service hosted by us, and works with Windows, Mac and Linux desktops. Our 3BClean product cleans metadata from a wide range of documents including Microsoft Word and PowerPoint, Open Document Format (ODF) and PDF. 

3BClassify covers communications via email (including via webmail and mobile devices) which has been the main focus of our existing customers, is extensible to cover all relevant protocols for the electronic transfer of information e.g. IM, FTP, HTTP and can be integrated with business systems such as Enterprise Content Management systems.

3BView provides integrated solutions for each customer, put together from modules based on the 3BClassify platform (including 3BSafe and 3BClean). It requires no desktop customisation or software installation. This means the solution is flexible to meet each customer’s needs, without requiring inefficient set-up work by 3BView. Professional services delivered by 3BView or a partner can include integration, implementation and training.

Document Transformation

For any organisation that needs to archive documents for the future, we can provide tools to convert your documents between ODF, Microsoft Office and PDF formats, including support for the PDF/A archival format. Our products include batch tools for conversion of large volumes of legacy documents.

Our 3BOpenDoc product provides ‘on the fly’ conversion of documents between Open Document Format (ODF) and Microsoft Office formats, enabling StarOffice and users to work seamlessly with Microsoft Office users.

For PDF creation, our 3BSecurePDF and extendedPDF tools provide a variety of options to easily create secure, easy-to-read PDFs from a wide range of documents.
