Challenges law firms face today
The pandemic caused an unprecedented shift across industries, and many law firms are struggling to adapt.
These days, law firms need to give their clients alternative ways to discuss their cases without meeting in person. Similarly, lawyers and staff need to be able to access sensitive case data whether at the office or at home. Doing this could increase their vulnerability to cyberthreats and risk of exposure, which many are not prepared for.
Law firms and offices need solutions to help them protect clients’ data and case files, ensure devices for their legal teams are secure, and identify and manage cyberthreats so they can focus on growing their business.
60% of small and medium businesses (SMBs) lack the skills to deal with cyberattacks 1
90% of SMBs would consider hiring a third party to help manage IT needs if they offered the right security solutions 2
75% of decision-makers agree that added complexity of a remote workforce means that they are less secure 3
Transform teamwork and communications – Provide a safer way to connect with clients and legal teams with mobile device management features that allow you to remotely configure security policies and even erase data so only trusted devices and the right people have access to sensitive case files.
Meet compliance requirements – Simplify the process of complying with legal industry standards by being able to take inventory of data privacy risks, manage complex access controls, and easily create audit reports.
Secure data and devices – Apply security policies to protect critical client and case information across devices, like requiring a PIN to access client details or setting Information Rights Management policies so that only authorised employees have access to sensitive data.
Stay ahead of cybersecurity threats – Help stop hackers from stealing client and case data containing personal information by using automated detection and remediation tools to identify and react to cyberthreats before they happen.
