Law firm Thomson Snell & Passmore selects Egress Switch to provide secure email encryption and enhanced operational efficiency
London – January 2014 – Egress Software Technologies, the leading provider of email encryption to professional services firms, today announces that regional law firm Thomson Snell & Passmore has selected Egress Switch to protect client information sent by email and offer a simple mechanism to transfer large files securely.
With a reputation built on the excellence of their legal services across 25 practice areas, Thomson Snell & Passmore prides itself on the quality of service they provide to clients. Consequently, much of the firm’s success has been based on long-term client relationships that encourage a culture of respect, understanding, excellence and trust.
David Bennett, Head of Information Systems at Thomson Snell & Passmore, explains: “As a firm, we are very proud of our reputation in the market, and one of the major reasons for our success has been the level of long-term trust we have built with our clients. Preserving this trust is of paramount importance to the future of our business, which is why we must guarantee the security and confidentiality of highly sensitive client information.
“By selecting Egress Switch, we are able to guarantee 100% client confidentiality and demonstrate tangible efficiency and costs savings when sharing electronic information,” Bennett continues. “This can be via email, large file transfer or removable media, which means that in many cases, clients can use a single system to access confidential information and avoid the unnecessary burden of ‘deal rooms’ that require additional usernames and passwords.
“We are also seeing huge benefits from the Egress Switch licensing model, which allows recipients of Switch emails to reply securely and free of charge as many times as they need. As a result, we are able to offer our clients a service that not only gives us peace of mind when handling sensitive information, but also provides the firm with a differentiating service that other legal practices cannot offer. In the current competitive legal services landscape, this is a fantastic selling point.”
Tony Pepper, CEO of Egress Software Technologies, states: “The decision by Thomson Snell & Passmore to use Egress Switch to provide email and file encryption is further evidence of the emphasis that law firms are now placing on information security. Not only will Switch ensure the confidentiality of Thomson Snell & Passmore’s client information, but it will improve efficiency, streamline their systems and enable them to offer a market differentiating service. We are confident that these cost savings, efficiency gains and additional service offerings will provide the firm with a strong set of benefits, and we look forward to continuing to work closely with them in the future.”
