Based in Broadway Street in the heart of New York City, New York, Redactable is a cloud-based data redaction software developed by C.E.O. and Founder, Amanda Levay to streamline the process of Redaction and ensure complete data-security.
“As a former loan consultant, I would get tons of confidential documents sent to me for due diligence packages. I constantly managed documents such as client tax returns, social security numbers, account information, appraisals, and inspection reports. I soon found out that drawing boxes over sensitive data didn’t work. Convinced there was a better way to redact documents, I started Redactable."
- Amanda Levay, Founder and C.E.O.

What You Need to Know About Redaction
Before we start, let's get caught up with what exactly Redaction is and where we see it.
What is Redaction?
Redaction is the process of deleting sensitive and confidential information from a document in order to protect the concerned party's data. If you've seen confidential or legal file props on T.V. shows or Movies - often a black-streaked document or confidentially-marked file held by an exaggerate government official or attorney- you've already been introduced to the field of redaction!
Though today, with the spread of mass data, the process has trickled down into our everyday lives.
What do we Redact?
From hospital bills to tax forms, Personally Identifiable Information (P.I.I.) is widely present and easily accessible. Names, Bank Accounts, Social Security Numbers are only a few examples of P.I.I.
You can see the personal and sensitive nature of such information must be protected as its unconsented misuse could be fatal for users.
Automation: Redaction and the Introduction of A.I.
“I recommend both large and small organizations begin assessing their document-intensive processes to ascertain where and how AI and intelligent document solutions can create new value for their businesses by redesigning, optimizing and automating workflows."
Automation has introduced a number of helpful tools that have alleviated the process of redaction for millions.
Evolving from printing and marking out documents with a marker only to scan it back again, Redaction has come a long way by being, for users today, a matter of searching and selecting data in their electronic documents or having a software ease the process for them by providing a list of recognised Patterns of P.I.I. such as Credit Cards, Social Security numbers, Addresses…etc.
Let's see the Benefits of Automated Redaction:
- Efficiency: Save time, man-power and money by assigning your redaction process to an A.I.-driven redaction tool that highlights your redaction needs in minutes.
- Accuracy: The fields of machine learning and Natural Language Processing has lent A.I.-redaction to be highly accurate and can circumvent human-error.
- Security: Permanent data deletion wherever the document file is present can be easily enacted with a few clicks. Manual efforts of previous years used to be a workload in itself often causing human-error.
When to Redact?
Data-Sanitization should be practiced whenever and wherever applicable. However, keep the following five stages where data can be successfully redacted in your tool-belt, it'll help enclose your sensitive information and prevent data-theft:
- Upon Receiving Data
- Upon Completing Task
- Before the Distribution of the Data
- Before Data Archiving
- Before Data Disposal
What Software Do You Need?
“The journey toward intelligent documents and AI-driven PDF workflows can be a significant undertaking, depending on the underlying complexity of the processes your organization is seeking to automate. Yet, the benefits of cost-efficiency, business productivity, customer satisfaction and revenue generation are too important to ignore”
Capable and Secure.
The whole intent of redaction is to protect user information. Having secure and trusted software, therefore, becomes of paramount importance. Harmful and unestablished software are the source of innumerable data-leaks and compromise of end-user data.
From telemarketers to bank account hackers, data-theft is prevalent and requires data-protection to counteract. Therefore, a software that recognises all facets of data leaks while being trusted and recognized itself, is your dual-sword for combating data-theft in our world today.
“Redactable is a reliable solution that companies can be confident using."

What Do We Remove?
We employ machine learning to scrub every layer of your document to ensure classified data is permanently deleted.
- Sensitive Data: The foremost layer of sensitive information in your document: P.I.I.
- Metadata: Metadata is "data that provides information about other data", but not the specific content. Think of it like your parking spot. Though the numeral following an alphabet does not directly indicate anything apart from a location within the parking garage, it CAN be used to deduce certain accuracies of your life like the size and purpose of your vehicle, where you live, your relative income, the size…etc. Redactable eliminates any secondary-data.
- Hidden Document Elements: Remove all trailing data-elements that are present in the source-code. We wipe out all scope for your data being compromised.
