As these law firms seek to combat the growing trend in usage of unmanaged, public cloud-based file storage apps like Dropbox, Accellion solutions provide the legal industry with the ability to completely control access and ensure regulatory compliance of file sharing. Accellion offers the ability for employees to easily share case files and legal including those documents residing in key document management systems like iManage and Microsoft SharePoint with clients and outside counsel.

“As our lawyers work to quickly, easily, and securely share confidential client and case information both internally and with clients, we needed a solution that delivered secure access,” said Bill Kyrouz, Bingham McCutchen LLP. “Accellion provides an elegant and intuitive solution for our end users who need to share information.”

“The adoption of iPads is driving the need for mobile applications that enable secure sharing of sensitive information. Unfortunately, many end users have been drawn to unmanaged ‘dropbox-type’ applications that create significant security and compliance issues for their employers,” said Yorgen Edholm, CEO of Accellion. “Smart law firms are taking action and seeking out solutions that address their employees’ needs while also putting the controls in place to ensure security and compliance. By deploying Accellion file sharing solutions, many of the world’s leading firms are both protecting their employees’ and clients’ sensitive legal information anytime, anywhere, and allowing them easy access to collaborate and increase productivity.”
