Family Law Specialist Hartnell Chanot & Partners Selects Egress Switch

Sep 11 2013, 8:28pm CDT | by PR.com

Egress Switch, the market-leading email and file encryption solution, is selected by prominent law firm to secure confidential information shared with a wide variety of external third parties.

London, United Kingdom, September 11, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Egress Software Technologies, the leading provider of email and file encryption solutions to professional services firms, today announces the selection of Egress Switch by Hartnell Chanot & Partners in order to securely share and control confidential information with its clients and other external third parties.

As the largest firm of family law solicitors in the South West region, Hartnell Chanot & Partners has built their reputation on the excellence of their services, which extends to the protection of highly sensitive information that needs to be shared outside the firm’s secure networks. Dealing with a range of third party clients and partners, including police, courts, medical experts and other legal firms, Hartnell Chanot & Partners required a robust encryption solution that would secure shared information, whilst also integrating with existing work practices so that efficiency would not be compromised.

Prior to deploying Switch, the firm had relied on less secure methods for transferring large files. Not only was this a data security concern, but as multiple products were being used, it was difficult for the IT department to manage and control where information was being shared. As a result, auditing issues arose as there was no efficient way of tracking the flow of information in and out of the organisation, which if left unchecked, could have led to a data breach and compliancy concerns, particularly in the wake of the recent legislative changes from the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA).

“When selecting an encryption product, we were looking to secure and streamline our information sharing process,” explains Scott Rose, IT Manager for Hartnell Chanot & Partners. “As our solicitors communicate with a variety of third parties about highly confidential information, we needed a solution that not only protected that data but also allowed us to track, audit and control its flow in and out of the firm.

“Switch has enhanced the way we share confidential information,” Scott Rose continues. “Not only does it provide a comprehensive solution for securing data – whether you’re sharing via email, large file transfer or removable media – it also integrates with Microsoft Outlook, removing the need for users to have multiple accounts on different systems depending on the type and size of the information being shared.”

Commenting on the announcement, UK Sales Manager Kelly McCann stated: “We are delighted that Hartnell Chanot & Partners have chosen Switch as their email and file encryption solution. Following recent legislation from the SRA mandating all professional services firms nominate or employ a compliance officer, we are seeing an increasing number of our clients making information security a key priority. Without clear security policies and investment in the right technology, firms risk substantial regulatory fines and reputational damage.”

McCann continues: “By working closely with Hartnell Chanot & Partners, not only can we help them to mitigate this risk and remain compliant, but also streamline business processes that will enhance efficiency and reduce costs in the long term.”
