London, UK, September 15, 2015 - Full-service law firm, Thompson & Knight LLP, announces it has selected Workshare Protect Server to further reduce the risk of metadata leakage and enable its global workforce of attorneys to work securely from any device.
Thompson & Knight has more than 300 attorneys with U.S. offices in Texas, New York, and California and international offices and associations in the Americas, North Africa, and Europe. Workshare Protect Server provides the firm ‘360-degree protection’ by ensuring that all email attachments, sent via a desktop computer, mobile device or tablet, are scrubbed of sensitive metadata before leaving the corporate network.
Ray Keeton, Senior Systems Administrator for Mobility & Messaging at Thompson & Knight, commented, “Our attorneys handle sensitive information related to client cases and send a substantial number of messages on any given day. We reviewed how our attorneys were working from mobile devices and OWA and chose to implement Workshare Protect Server as an additional layer of security. Installation and configuration was straightforward, and the product has proven to be reliable. With Workshare Protect Server, we are confident that when our attorneys and paralegals send messages from any platform, attachments will be scrubbed, yet still maintain an audit trail for our records.”
Anthony Foy, CEO of Workshare, commented, “Legal professionals are becoming heavily reliant on their mobile devices and while this can bring lots of benefits to a firm, it doesn’t without posing great risk. Thompson & Knight has been recognized for best practice on a number of occasions and is a great example of a firm that is balancing its attorneys’ needs with the needs of the business.”
