Used by more than one million people worldwide, the Metadata Assistant is the leading metadata removal tool available on the market today. The only metadata removal tool to be written about on the cover of The Wall Street Journal, the Metadata Assistant has won several "shoot outs" in product comparison tests and is deployed in law firms, corporations and government agencies around the world. Simply put, we remove more metadata than any other product out there.
The Metadata Assistant analyzes Word/Excel/PowerPoint files (formats 97-2003 and XML-based) to determine the type and amount of metadata (hidden information) that exists within. You can use a variety of options to remove unwanted metadata from your documents, workbooks and presentations. The enterprise version can operate as a standalone utility or can run from within Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook 2003. You can analyze and clean the active (open) file in any of those applications or you can designate a specific closed file. You can even use the Metadata Assistant to batch process multiple files located on a local or network folder. Additionally, you can analyze/clean files attached to outbound e-mail messages and convert cleaned files to pdf format.
