Palo Alto, Calif. (PRWEB) April 12, 2010
IntApp, Inc., the leading provider of risk management software for the legal industry, today announced that Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler LLP, a law firm of nearly 200 lawyers, delivering a full range of services across more than 20 practice groups in both commercial law and litigation, uses IntApp Wall Builder to manage internal confidentiality policies, enforce information access restrictions and track compliance across the firm.
Wall Builder is a web-based confidentiality management application that enables organizations to centrally control, monitor and report on user access permissions across multiple applications including document management, accounting, portal, CRM, time entry and records management systems. It also automates notifications to individuals subject to specific policies and tracks acknowledgments for compliance purposes.
“We selected IntApp Wall Builder because we wanted to use the best technology available to respond to the ethical screening, confidentiality management and data privacy obligations facing law firms,” said Mike Gasparino, Director of Information Systems, Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler LLP. “IntApp continues to enhance Wall Builder to address industry needs, and the support we receive from them and their partner community is excellent.”
Law firms must closely manage and track internal access to client information for many reasons. These include waiver-driven ethical screens, client outside counsel guidelines, and compliance with regulations such as the HITECH Act, ITAR and several data privacy laws.
Wall Builder replaces distributed, ad hoc approaches to information security with a centralized system that provides organizations with unprecedented capability and control over user access to specific applications, documents and other information. It’s the only product for law firms that delivers real-time enforcement while updating access rights in response to attorney behavior to ensure that policies are kept up to date automatically.
“All law firms face confidentiality and data privacy requirements,” said Pat Archbold, head of IntApp's Risk Practice Group. “Patterson Belknap is part of a growing community of firms employing the strongest technology measures available to address their professional obligations and limit risk for their organizations.”
IntApp provides software products and services that enable law firms to increase revenue, ensure client confidentiality, manage risk and maximize lawyer productivity. With over 150 customers, including 50% of the 100 largest US firms as ranked by The American Lawyer, and a vibrant partner community, IntApp has been embraced and endorsed as an industry standard.
