Ensuring data protection is the cornerstone of every company today. They must balance the need to keep sensitive information confidential while complying with strict data protection regulations.

EShadow utilizes document pseudonymization and anonymization to help companies protect their sensitive information effectively. By pseudonymizing and anonymizing documents, we ensure that sensitive information remains inaccessible, thus minimizing the risk of data exposure and protecting your business against potential data breaches.

EShadow for all documents

  3. Images: AI detects and protects sensitive information contained in images.

EShadow simplifies data security for a wide variety of document formats.

Artificial intelligence at the heart of our technology

EShadow's effectiveness is based on exploiting two complementary AI methods: symbolic and connectionist. Together, they provide robust and accurate protection for your data.

  • Symbolic AI: This method uses pre-established rules to represent and process information. It is ideal for managing situations where pseudonymization and anonymization rules are clear and well-defined.
  • Connectionist AI: This approach uses artificial neural networks to mimic how the human brain learns and makes decisions, making it effective for managing complex and ambiguous scenarios where symbolic AI may be less efficient.

The unique combination of these two methods enables us to handle a wide variety of situations. Whether your information is structured or requires a more nuanced interpretation, EShadow ensures optimum data protection.
