Palo Alto, Calif. (PRWEB) June 21, 2010
IntApp, Inc., the leading provider of risk management software for the legal industry, today announced that Kirkland & Ellis LLP, a global law firm with 1,500 attorneys, has successfully deployed IntApp Wall Builder to enforce confidentiality policies 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 evaluated available options and chose IntApp Wall Builder because it was the only confidentiality management product with a proven track record of client success, delivered by the only vendor that could demonstrate technology and services experience implementing confidentiality software in large law firm environments,” said Ann Ostrander, Senior Director of Loss Prevention, Kirkland & Ellis LLP. “IntApp’s professional services team did an outstanding job of meeting our firm’s demanding technical and timing needs, addressing a very complex set of implementation requirements without missing a milestone, including integrating Wall Builder with our Autonomy iManage document management, Open Text LegalKEY records management, and Carpe Diem time entry software.”
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 European Union Market Abuse and Privacy Directives.
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.
“We’re able to address the technology, project management, training, data integration and business process requirements set out by Kirkland & Ellis because of our significant experience working with law firms to meet their confidentiality and compliance needs,” said Pat Archbold, head of IntApp's Risk Practice Group. “We’re excited to announce another smooth law firm Wall Builder implementation and look forward to supporting Kirkland’s continued success.”
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.
