PII Finder by Litexn

PII Finder quickly pinpoints personally identifiable information (PII), such as social security numbers (SSNs) and certain bank card numbers, within Microsoft Excel workbooks and points reviewers to the exact location of such critical information.

Pinpoint PII in Excel files

Litexn is a technology company based in Ashburn, Virginia, USA that applies innovative technologies to the e-discovery sector.

Excel file review and redaction is one of the most challenging e-discovery problems. Litexn has taken on this challenge by delivering automated solutions to identify critical information and perform mass redactions on a large number of Excel files. PII Finder is a Relativity application that enables users to quickly identify personal information in Excel files.

Key features include:

  • Automates PII finding: PII Finder automatically locates SSNs and bank card numbers within Excel files based on patterns, independent of row or column headings.
  • Propagates search on multiple Excel files: Using a saved search as input, PII Finder identifies personal information within all the returned Excel files—no need to work on a file-by-file basis.
  • Pinpoints the location: PII Finder stores in Relativity the exact location of PII in the Excel file, including sheet name and cell address, directing users to the critical information.
