iManage and Workshare partner to deliver an integrated, proactive approach to securing the legal work product


iManageFrom Legal Futures’ Associate iManage.

iManage, the company dedicated to transforming how professionals work, and Workshare, a leading provider of intelligent technology for protecting high stakes documents, today announced enhanced product integrations that enable legal CISOs and other security professionals to better protect sensitive client data, especially when collaborating with email.

The first integration enables professional services firms to scan and protect email attachments with Workshare Secure based on policies defined in iManage Security Policy Manager. This capability stops emails and attachments from going to unintended recipients and other recipients not permitted by policy, minimizing data loss.

Another integration leverages email intelligence from Workshare Secure enabling iManage Threat Manager to uncover possible threats faster and more accurately and support further investigations.

“Our coordinated approach with iManage ensures that emails are now completely governed, both to eliminate accidental data loss and to secure email as a possible threat mechanism,” said Anthony Foy, CEO, Workshare. “This closes existing gaps in firms’ defences when it comes to creating, reviewing and sharing work product via email. iManage and Workshare have a history of integration and a proven track record of working together to deliver high-value customer solutions, so we are delighted to continue that tradition with our latest offering.”

Other iManage and Workshare products which are easily integrated to support a firm’s security strategy include:

  • iManage Work– The leading document and email management platform for agility and adoption. Enterprise-grade security combined with consumer agility makes iManage Work 10 a platform everybody can use for their Work Product Management.
  • Workshare Compare – The industry’s leading document comparison solution that provides fast and accurate redlines for all file types
  • iManage Records Manager – Provides a central interface with advanced capabilities to manage both physical and electronic records. Administrators can set governance policies, including trigger events, retention periods and disposition rules, as well as monitor and enforce compliance on both records and non-records without introducing burden or overhead for today’s busy professional user.

“Law firms today are facing a unique challenge in securing a wide variety of systems and client information,” said Dan Carmel, Chief Marketing Officer, iManage. “A policy-based approach in which changes or updates can be made once and applied across many systems reduces the costs and risks associated with managing complex security at scale. We are pleased to partner with Workshare to bring email data loss prevention under unified policy management.”
