BigHand Office today announced the release of Scrub 8, the latest version of its next-generation metadata management solution.

Temecula, CA – BigHand today announced the release of BigHand Scrub 8, the latest version of its next-generation metadata management solution. Scrub 8 has been completely re-engineered to provide users with unparalleled speed and greater usability. BigHand Scrub's new metadata management engine significantly improves performance and further streamlines the metadata removal process.

BigHand Scrub's comprehensive metadata management software now provides greater flexibility with no interruption of workflow. The new engine allows users to manage metadata without compromising precious machine resources by managing metadata outside of the Microsoft Office® core. This re-engineering is the first of its kind and will continue to separate Scrub from other solutions by providing firms with unparalleled performance.

New key features include:

  • New metadata management processing engine
  • Microsoft Office® 64-bit integration
  • Updated User Interface
  • Improved Password Protection handling
  • New PDF conversion options
  • Improved attachment processing

"Because sensitive data resides at the core of all business activities, it is critical that BigHand Scrub continues to improve in order to provide clients with the tools they need to effectively protect their business," said Judye Releford, Client Solutions Director for BigHand. "BigHand Scrub continues to be a top metadata solution in the market and we continually work to enhance performance so firms can experience best-of-breed metadata security without sacrificing performance."
