How to redact documents in bulk: AI text analysis


The Bulk Document feature allows the user to redact an unlimited number of documents at once!

The AI Text Analysis function within the Bulk Processing allows users to automatically redact Personal Identifiable Information (PII) in all documents without performing any manual redactions.

For those interested in performing redactions using the Bulk AI Text Analysis feature, one possible use case would be to redact all names and emails from 100 bank statements. While the manual option is available, this feature will help any user who needs to redact multiple categories of PII with a few clicks.

Notably, there are 32+ categories of PII to select from. You can either redact all PII from your documents or select a few based on your requirements. Names, Phone Numbers, Emails, Addresses, and Social Security Numbers are the most commonly used categories for CaseGuard users.

Moreover, in the Bulk AI text Analysis feature, you can select the file language from which you want the AI to detect and redact PII. CaseGuard supports AI Text Analysis in 53 languages, including Spanish, French, and German. For example, if you need to redact all Names in a Spanish-language document, the AI will detect Spanish Names with more confidence if the File Language is set to Spanish.
