Assured File Transfer (AFT). Document Detective is also effective to identify and mitigate Insider Threat signatures in
Using multiple tools including keyword search, object and image inspection, optical character recognition (OCR) and a proven sanitization

Customer Upgrade/Migration Guidance
Document Detective 5.0 supports Windows 10, 8.1 and 7, and systems with Office 2016, 2013, or 2010 installed. This is not a mandatory
upgrade, but ManTech recommends always using the latest version of Document Detective to help minimize the possibility of a data spill.
If your organization is currently or will soon be using Office 2016, ManTech recommends you upgrade to Document Detective 5.0 now. The previous
version 4.5.2 does not detect objects in Office 2016 documents, so there is a possibility of a spill if customers use the previous version in an
Office 2016 environment. The 4.5.x code sunset date has not been established, but we are considering 12/31/2018 or Q1-19.
If your legacy systems are still running Windows XP, Vista or Office 2007 or older, keep using Document Detective 4.5.2 until your systems are
upgraded to a newer Windows Operating System and Office version.
