NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. -- SRS Technologies, a leading provider of system engineering, system integration and IT services and products, announced today that the Center for Army Lessons Learned (CALL) has deployed its Document Detective solution to securely process electronic documents. CALL, based in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, collects and analyzes data from Army personnel to produce real-world lessons for the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC), as well as other U.S. joint training centers.
Document Detective finds hidden data and metadata, such as tracked changes, comments, OLE files, embedded documents and object fragments, in Microsoft Office and Adobe Portable Document Format files, allowing users to determine what material to eliminate or retain. On June 12, SRS announced the availability of its Electronic Document Review System (EDRS), which extends the capabilities of Document Detective and helps government and commercial organizations safely and reliably review, share and transfer sensitive or classified documents.
Most people dont realize that electronic documents often contain a great deal of hidden data, especially when those documents are reused as templates or when multiple authors collaborate on a single document, said Ronald D. Hackett, program manager for SRS Systems Solution Division. Due to the nature of CALLs business, they are especially aware of the importance of finding and eliminating hidden data. Document Detective helps provide CALL with a quicker turnaround to publish and disseminate its critical best practices documents to Army personnel, while maintaining a high confidence level that those documents do not contain sensitive hidden material.
