Empower your applications with our Document Redaction API, enabling automated and precise removal of sensitive information from documents. Seamlessly integrate redaction capabilities to enhance privacy, compliance, and document-sharing security within your workflows.
A Document Redaction API, similar to Document Anonymization API, is an interface for programming applications that enables developers to incorporate redaction capabilities into their software.
It provides functions and methods that facilitate the automated removal of specific content in documents, including text, images, or other media. Document anonymization, on the other hand, focuses on protecting the privacy of individuals by replacing or removing personally identifiable information (PII) from a document.
Both document redaction and document anonymization involve altering documents to protect sensitive information, redaction is more about removing specific pieces of information that are deemed confidential, while anonymization is focused on general privacy protection by removing or replacing personally identifiable information.
Some typical applications for Document Redaction APIs involve legal document creation, government document management, and privacy-compliant medical record redaction (for example, in adherence with HIPAA regulations in the United States).
Our standardized API allows you to use different providers on Eden AI to easily integrate Document Redaction APIs into your system.

Using a Document Redaction API offers a range of benefits that enhance various aspects of document processing and analysis. Some of the key advantages include:
Document Redaction APIs have a wide range of uses across various industries and applications. Here are some common use cases:
In legal practice, lawyers regularly share documents with opposing parties, clients, or the court. To comply with regulations and maintain confidentiality, it is essential to redact sensitive information, including personal details, financial information, and any privileged content.
Government agencies handle a significant amount of documentation that may include confidential data. Redaction APIs facilitate the preparation and dissemination of such documentation while upholding privacy and security regulations.
Healthcare providers handle patient records that contain delicate health information safeguarded by regulations like HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act). APIs for redaction help adhere to regulations by automatically censoring identifiers for patients and other confidential information.
In finance, reports and statements commonly hold private information about clients, stakeholders, and the company. Redaction APIs can erase or hide sensitive details when distributing these materials.
Media outlets and publishers can utilize redaction APIs to conceal sensitive details in documents before they make them public. This is particularly vital when conducting investigative journalism or safeguarding private sources.
