Top-Tier Scottish Firm Burness Paull Chooses cleanDocs from DocsCorp for Metadata Leak Protection


The premier firm relies on cleanDocs to prevent sensitive information in email attachments being accidentally leaked to the public.

DocsCorp, a leading provider of enterprise productivity solutions, today announced that Burness Paull, a top-tier Scottish law firm, has chosen cleanDocs to minimize the risk of inadvertent data leaks. cleanDocs removes hidden and potentially damaging metadata from email attachments on send, and prompts users to confirm recipients and attachments as valid.

Burness Paull now has all the products in the DocsCorp desktop productivity suite, including compareDocs for document comparison, pdfDocs for PDF file editing and bundling as well as cleanDocs.

Speaking on the decision, Sam Moore, Innovation Manager at Burness Paull, said, “Burness Paull recognizes the potential risk to ourselves and to our clients from hidden metadata. Busy lawyers and secretaries don’t always remember to check for metadata, so we needed a tool to make sure we weren’t accidentally disclosing hidden information.”

“We chose cleanDocs as our preferred solution to protect against this risk,” continued Sam. “cleanDocs is set up at Burness Paull to automatically remove metadata from documents as they leave the firm and we appreciate the built-in email checking functionality as well.”

Samantha Jefferies, DocsCorp VP of Sales EMEA, explained that “cleanDocs removes hidden metadata from email attachments instantly and then prompts users to confirm recipients and attachments are correct, protecting firms from human error and unintended actions, which is the leading cause of data breaches worldwide.”
