Blake Morgan LLP selects Egress Switch to secure confidential client information and meet regulatory compliance
London 2012 – Egress Software Technologies, the leading provider of email & file encryption software to professional services firms announced today that leading law firm Blake Morgan LLP has adopted Egress Switch to secure and control information shared between the firm, its clients, and other third party partners.
“At Blake Morgan, the need to electronically share confidential and sensitive information externally with our clients and partners has increased substantially in the last few years. For over a decade we have built an outstanding reputation based on providing our clients with the highest quality legal services and advice. Therefore, we need to ensure that any information shared is 100% secure, preserving client confidentiality at all times,” commented Paul Dryden, IT Operations Manager, Blake Morgan.
“Egress Switch allows our lawyers to share information securely regardless of the transfer mechanism. Any information sent by email, copied to removable media, or transferred via FTP/HTTP Servers can be shared with confidence, offering auditing and real-time control – even after the data has been sent. In addition using the community based licensing model, our clients can respond securely using Switch free of charge, enabling us to reduce operating costs and IT overhead when communicating securely with third parties,” continues Dryden.
Commenting on the announcement, Tony Pepper, CEO, Egress Software Technologies said, “We are delighted to have been chosen by Blake Morgan to provide their users with a simple and secure way to encrypt the information they share. With the recent legislation from the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) which mandates all law firms to nominate or employ a compliance officer, we are seeing more and more client’s position information security as a key priority. Without clear security policies and investment in the right technology Firms risk substantial regulatory fines and reputational damage.”
"Our new partnership enables Blake Morgan to maintain its reputation for embracing innovation and improving efficiency by offering clients a range of supporting services to help differentiate their Firm from other businesses in the legal market," concludes Pepper.
Project completion is currently planned for early 2013.
