Filter sensitive information from text

Philter finds, identifies, and removes sensitive information, such as PII and PHI, from text.


Philter finds, identifies, and removes sensitive information, such as Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and Protected Health Information (PHI), from text. Philter can help you with text deidentification, anonymization, tokenization, masking, encryption, and redaction.

Philter’s API provides powerful filtering capabilities for natural language text. When text is received, Philter analyzes and processes the text for sensitive information. Any sensitive information found is manipulated based on Philter’s configuration.

Philter is available on AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, and as a Docker container.
