Workshare announced companies can eliminate the risk of exposing potentially damaging or sensitive metadata with its Workshare Protect 3.0. With Protect 3.0 companies gain greater control of content in their Microsoft Office documents, whether used on the desktop or shared via email, through features such as automatic metadata cleaning options, internal and external metadata policy settings and one-step PDF conversion capabilities. Protect 3.0 now cleans metadata in any Microsoft Office application including Excel and PowerPoint. Protect 3.0 Metadata Risk Reports indicate if there is no potentially damaging information in a Word document. Companies can use Metadata Policy Settings to set standard metadata policies, on a departmental or organizational level, on how and what metadata should be cleaned automatically when sending emails to internal or external recipients. Protect now integrates with Lotus Notes and Novell GroupWise as well as Microsoft Outlook. Workshare Protect 3.0 is available now with per user pricing based on volume.
