Securely view, annotate, and redact virtually any type of file

In today's world of "anywhere, anytime" business, organizations are under pressure to ensure easy access to documents, regardless of the file type or device in use. At the same time, business leaders want to protect the content from unauthorized user access, modifications, and downloads.

How can organizations strike a balance between the accessibility and security of their files?

Brava! provides access to content in virtually any format—including PDFs, Microsoft Office documents, image files, CAD drawings, 3D models and even video clips—without allowing the source file to be edited or downloaded. It enables workers to view the content they need and collaborate with coworkers and external stakeholders, all within the business rules so organizations can operate efficiently while meeting compliance and security objectives.

Users can add markups and collaborate using Brava!'s robust markup tools, create new file renditions as PDF or TIFF—even redact sensitive information in the new file—for easy sharing with external recipients, and add electronic signatures.

Brava!'s customizability, scalability, and minimal user training requirements make large deployments and rapid adoption a reality in any business environment. It eliminates the need to install native applications on every desktop, and is compatible with all major web browsers, so it works on PCs, Macs, and most smartphones and tablets.

OpenText Brava! enables you to:

  • Improve operational efficiencies and save costs by utilizing a single application for viewing and collaborating on all documents
  • Speed review and approval cycles and document processing times so projects go faster
  • Protect sensitive information and meet data security requirements
