Palo Alto, Calif. (PRWEB) June 1, 2010
IntApp, Inc., the leading provider of risk management software for the legal industry, today announced that Leonard, Street and Deinard Professional Association, one of Minnesota’s largest law firms, employing nearly 190 attorneys in more than 40 practices, uses IntApp Wall Builder to enforce confidentiality policies, address ethical screening requirements and track internal compliance.
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 because they’re the clear leader in confidentiality management and compliance for law firms, serving a large number of our industry peers,” said Terry Pressley, Chief Information Officer, Leonard, Street and Deinard. “IntApp Wall Builder has proven itself to be an integral part of our risk management strategy, smoothly integrating with our document management infrastructure and existing business processes.”
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.
“With evolving rules of professional standards and new data privacy regulations creating new expectations for the entire legal industry, firms must carefully address their confidentiality management practices,” said Pat Archbold, head of IntApp's Risk Practice Group. “By using IntApp Wall Builder, Leonard, Street and Deinard is able to demonstrate that it’s taking the strongest technology measures available to meet its confidentiality and risk management obligations.”
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.
