May 16, LONDON, UKWorkshare, a leading provider of secure enterprise collaboration applications, today announced that it has completed beta testing Workshare Professional 7.5. The product extends Workshare Professional by integrating with Windows 8 and Microsoft Office 2013, providing faster and more accurate comparisons for tables and DOCX files.

Workshare Professional 7.5 enhances the product’s trusted document comparison, metadata removal and PDF creation features, delivering users with a complete package for data comparison within Windows 8 and Microsoft Office 2013. Available directly from inside Office 2013 applications, users benefit from comparisons between versions of even complex PDF or Word documents. All document edits are maintained in the original master document, eliminating the need for different document versions and allowing users to easily determine what has been changed.

Enterprises can set centrally administered policies that intercept email attachments sent from Outlook. For documents with sensitive information, settings include automating metadata removal and PDF creation, and allowing employees to replace attachments with a secure link. This prevents employees from inadvertently including sensitive or hidden information in documents sent outside the organization.

“Microsoft Office is the gold standard of enterprise productivity suites, so it’s important for Workshare to integrate with its newest desktop applications and operating systems to continue to support our growing customer base,” said Anthony Foy, Workshare CEO. “Workshare is used by 62% of Fortune 1000 companies, many of which rely on Workshare Professional for document control and protection. By integrating with Windows 8 and Microsoft 2013, we can ensure our enterprise customers’ maintain their daily workflows with the highest level of document control and security.”
