3BView releases 3BClean 2.1

- Are you leaking confidential information? -

St Helens, UK and Royersford, PA – 21st  September 2006 – 3BView Ltd, a software development company specialising in secure document exchange technologies, today announced the latest release of their flagship product 3BClean - version 2.1.

3BClean is specifically designed to prevent confidential information leaks from hidden document metadata such as Tracked Changes and Document Properties.

Hidden behind the visible document content - the image you would see if you printed the document out onto paper - is information that describes the content, the history of the document and its authors. This information is called metadata.

3BClean offers a unique approach to cleaning metadata from documents in a way that is totally transparent to users. With 3BClean there is no requirement for desktop installations or user training.

Sitting alongside your email server 3BClean automatically cleans documents that are sent via email either internally or externally. The amount of cleaning is determined by company wide rules that maybe set at differing levels: recipient’s company, individual recipient, default for sender and company wide default.

3BClean version 2.1 builds on the proven architecture of previous versions to offer:

  • Significantly reduce the time administrating your email system with the LDAP integration – allowing you to directly map information held in  identity servers to the policy configuration so that no new accounts or passwords are required;
  • The integration between 3BClean and additional relational databases enhances the scalability of 3BClean as well as simplifying the management of the system. 3BClean now provides support out of the box for MySQL and Microsoft SQL databases. Other databases can be supported on request.
