Getting started with Identity Cloak

Identity Cloak success stories

Find out how our retail customers complete requests for video footage while protecting their staff and customers from privacy breaches

The company is in a better position using Identity Cloak. Far better oversight of redaction costs now, whereas it was previously difficult to track spending.

The legal team is happier because Identity Cloak provides a reliable in-house solution, which is increasingly important now that the structures associated with GDPR have taken data protection to even more demanding levels.

Video redaction for retail FAQ

With increasing police issues, such as theft and aggression towards staff, police need video footage redacted, and often quickly. Having access to a video redaction tool enables operators to respond quickly to subject access requests and incidents.

While different types of video redaction software may have different approaches, Identity Cloak uses AI technology. It recognises faces, bodies and licence plates, automatically tracks these objects, whether still or in motion, and adds a “blur” around the subject or subjects of interest.

With Identity Cloak, you can also select specific areas to protect privacy rights of your staff and shoppers. The original file is left unchanged for data integrity and the new redacted footage is irreversible to ensure data security is upheld.

Identity Cloak quickly and efficiently redacts footage of busy areas and crowded stores. Minimal training is required to start using the software, so in a busy retail environment, anyone can use it to respond to incidents and subject access requests.

With targeted redaction and full cloaking, you can ensure staff and shoppers privacy rights are intact, for example, blurring shoppers’ PINs and sensitive areas such as locker rooms.
