Facit Cloak Identity GDPR Redaction Software Tested

By Robert Shih, Published on Nov 28, 2018

The fear of GDPR fines for releasing personal information has increased interest in video redaction software.

One of these entrants is the UK's Facit Data Sytems's Identity Cloak.

In this test, we examine the performance of the software and contrast it to Genetec's Clearance face redaction feature.
