PurifyCMD™ is a command line hidden data & metadata removal tool that can process multiple files at once.

Hidden data stored in many popular file types may contain confidential and private information that when exposed can cause you and your organization embarrassment with possible financial and legal implications.

Powered by Digital Confidence DataDistiller™ Engine, PurifyCMD™ is able to remove more than 60 types of hidden data from 25 file types, including Microsoft Office® documents (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), OpenOffice™ documents, PDF documents, and popular image and media file types such as JPEG, JPEG 2000, PNG, SVG, AVI, WAV, AIFF, MP3, MP4, and F4V. PurifyCMD™ can remove hidden data from files even if they are compressed within ZIP files.

Thanks to its command line interface, (CLI) PurifyCMD™ can be invoked from a script for automatic hidden data & metadata removal.

Please note that PurifyCMD™ may not be used by remote access according to the End User License Agreement (EULA). (e.g. in a web server for removing metadata automatically from uploaded files)

However, we might provide special permit for such usage, for a special fee. For consideration, we'll have to know exactly how the product will be used, and how many users will upload files to the server that will automatically be cleaned by PurifyCMD™. Please contact us at
