PuriFile 6.0, now with cleansing!

Posted on June 26, 2013 in Product News.

June 20, 2013 – Rome, NY – Exelis Inc., Information & Cyber Solutions Department, announced today the release of PuriFile v6.0 now with user selectable options for auto-cleansing Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, PDF and image formats.

For years PuriFile has been used by many secure installations to perform deep document inspection of Microsoft Office files to find hidden content and alert the user for data loss prevention. PDF’s however have been a growing concern as they may contain hidden information that until now could not be found by general inspection of the PDF document. PuriFile v6.0 now pulls the PDF apart to go deep inside the PDF structure to locate hidden data. Once hidden data has been found, PuriFile v6.0 now provides the user the ability to auto-cleanse the offending data. The additional automation of inspection and cleaning saves time while reducing human review errors.
Major new features in PuriFile v6.0 include:

    • The new PDF engine now performs deep inspection and allows the user to cleanse over 50 types of threats!
    • Auto-cleansing is now available for Microsoft Office 2007-2013 files.
    • Support for image inspection and cleansing in .jpg, .gif and .png files
    • Support for Microsoft Office 2013
    • Support of 64 bit installers
    • Redesigned web interface

PuriFile 6.0 has a faster, easier to use interface with more thorough inspections of more file types. The NEW cleansing capabilities ensure the data within your organization stays within your organization. We urge all current customers to consider upgrading to PuriFile v6.0 to take advantage of the improved speed, memory usage, increased inspection capabilities and cleansing!

PuriFile v3.6 adds extensive “file type” inspection and selective reporting

Posted on March 5, 2010 in Product News.

ROME, N.Y., March 5, 2010 – ITT Corporation (NYSE:ITT) today announced the release of PuriFile v 3.6 document inspection software. PuriFile software detects and identifies hidden objects and metadata within Microsoft Office and PDF files, which could accidentally or maliciously disclose sensitive information or confidential digital assets. These types of documents have numerous opportunities for holding data not easily discovered during normal inspection and release procedures.

The latest version, PuriFile v 3.6, brings additional functionality to the product by allowing the user to easily choose from a library of file types, which file types are allowable and which types should be flagged as concerns or violations. For example; the user may allow a picture (jpeg file) to be embedded in a Microsoft Word document, but may define an embedded Excel workbook as a violation. This new feature allows the end user to select acceptable and unacceptable file types without flagging everything in a file. In addition to a library of file types, PuriFile also performs complete recursive inspections of entire zips, folders or drives and inspects for offending data.
