The Challenge

The industry does not have regulatory guidelines or mandated security policies in place to ensure consistent data protection standards are upheld to protect sensitive data against, theft, misuse and data alterations. The result is that security is not always as big a focus as it should be. Not surprisingly, law firms are high-value targets for cybercriminals looking for quick and relatively easy access to information that is monetized for personal gain.

Lawyers need to be easily accessible to clients and rely on email to communicate with their clients and exchange information.  They also need to store and quickly access archived information around the clock. Any downtime due to a cyberattack equates to a direct loss of money for the firm as every minute spent unable to access critical records is time law firms cannot bill for.
