Why was Sensitive Attachment Guard created?
Document exchange through email attachments is a very common practice, especially in business field. However, the senders may not be aware that some of their email attachments actually contain sensitive or personal information which should not be revealed to their recipients. On the other hand, even the sender is aware of this, it is still inconvenient and time-consuming to make a copy for each sensitive document and to remove those confidential contents in the copy before sending it.
We provide a Thunderbird add-on called “Sensitive Attachment Guard”, which is able to detect the existence of sensitive information in the email attachments and to notify the sender accordingly. Moreover, it provides a function for the sender to strip away the sensitive contents from the attachments which will possibly be delivered to the selected recipients.
