Tiger Eye Guardian is an effective plug-in for Outlook, which monitors outgoing email messages to assess and validate all iManage document links shared via email. Minimizing the risk of human error in collaborative workflows, Guardian analyses all iManage document links (.nrl links) sent via email, alerting users if message recipients are not on the security permissions list for files shared. If a recipient does not have access to a document link they have been sent, Guardian prompts the email sender to edit/update security access for the document.
From the system’s user-friendly interface, users can add email recipients to permissions lists if needed, or send original documents. This reduces time waste in collaborative workflows by cutting out the need for recipients to request access to documents they do not have permission to open. From a compliance perspective, Guardian protects users and the firm against the risk of accidentally sending incorrect files externally, and ensures that ‘need-to-know’ security measures remain protected via email. The solution can also be used in conjunction with a range of other email security solutions to provide additional prompts to users and deliver a truly comprehensive security barrier for Outlook.
