CellShield Enterprise Edition

Excel PII Discovery, Reporting, Protection and Auditing

Quickly search, select, secure, and scrutinize sensitive data in every Excel® spreadsheet
When laptops fall into unauthorized hands, personally identifiable information (PII) stored in Excel is at risk of misuse and violation of a data privacy law. IRI CellShield EE prevents and nullifies breaches by finding that data in every connected spreadsheet, and protecting it in place, fast.
IRI CellShield EE is the only full-featured, professional data masking package for Excel 2010, 2013, and 2016 workbooks in your LAN, and soon Azure and SharePoint repositories. CellShield EE exceeds the security and scope of a single password by combining and automating all these extra capabilities:


Search network-wide for sensitive data on specified (as well as popular and saved) patterns.

Once on the Excel side, you can also PII floating within cell contents.


Identify and open all discovered patterns from and Excel worksheet, with room for commenting and auditing.

  It is from this report and its "Spreadsheet Selector" dialog that you take and log all your protection actions.


Perform manual or bulk point-and-click encryption (and decryption), masking (full or partial cell, non-reversible), or pseudonymization (reversible and non-reversible) of the applicable ranges within the spreadsheets identified in the report.

Toggle between individual workbooks and ranges, or select the rows you want and protect them all in the same way with one click. Redact in situ (where you overwrite the original cell value), or direct the protected result cells to another sheet.


Automatically create a securable log entry for the protection applied to each pattern identified in the report.

Every additional change to the cell contents is appended to its row in the audit column.

Note that the reversible functions supported in CellShield are compatible with those in IRI FieldShield (for protecting PII in multiple database and file sources statically or dynamically). That means what you conceal in one tool can be collaboratively revealed in a different system using the other tool.

CellShield EE is now available. Contact us using the form below if you are interested in a demonstration webinar.

Pricing falls between $3500 and $35k for perpetual use depending on the volume of networked sheets or ranges to scan and protect. CellShield EE is currently offered at a discount to early adopters, however, and to supported users of FieldShield and other IRI software.
