Esquire Innovations, Inc., a leading provider of Microsoft Office integration software services and applications for the legal market, today announced the release of iScrub version 5.0, the latest upgrade of its metadata removal and management utility for Microsoft Office (Word, Excel & PowerPoint) and PDF files.
iScrub v5.0, an enterprise-wide application for metadata removal and metadata management in law firms, uses sophisticated technologies to remove visible metadata and scrub the hidden or difficult to reach file elements. It also provides a centralized administration feature that allows firms to establish and control the metadata removal settings. Version 5 integrates with MS Office 2007.The iScrub upgrade provides e-discovery tools for Microsoft Documents- by providing extensive metadata reports in a common XML format, and is compatible with third party litigation and e-discovery tools. Based on Office 2007' XML document structure, iScrub has the ability to examine, mine and manage metadata in much more thorough fashion.
iScrub v5.0 includes various user benefits and key features including:
Metadata Viewer: A built-in review and reporting tool (iDiscover) designed to capture and display document metadata in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint;
Outlook, Lotus Notes and GroupWise Integration: E-mail integration capability to prevent the inadvertent release of confidential information.
