Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) October 14, 2013
Intapp, Inc., provider of the most-adopted information security and confidentiality management software for law firms, today announced that Hinckley Allen, a full-service law firm with offices across the northeast United States, uses Intapp Wall Builder and Intapp Activity Tracker to secure client data across firm systems, monitor internal use of sensitive information, respond to client outside counsel guidelines and audits, and address new HIPAA compliance requirements.
Today, a diverse and expanding set of drivers puts an increasingly bright spotlight on law firm information security. These include more stringent requirements from clients and insurers, regulatory rules like new HIPAA requirements, and revised rules of professional responsibility.
“Like most law firms, we are experiencing an unprecedented number of information security audits from our clients,” said John Guyer, Director of Information Technology, Hinckley Allen. “Traditionally, clients accepted firm assurances about information governance practices, but today more and more clients require explicit proof that firms have technical controls in place to properly restrict internal access to their sensitive business information. Intapp Wall Builder gives our firm a competitive edge when responding to client RFPs and enables us to confidently face client audits. The product also enables us to address the compliance requirements mandated by the new HIPAA Omnibus Rule.”
Intapp Wall Builder is a web-based information security and confidentiality management software application that enables organizations to centrally control 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.
Wall Builder is the most-adopted information security management software by law firms with 150 or more lawyers. According to an independent survey by the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA), 72% of large law firms using commercial software to enforce information access controls use Intapp Wall Builder.
Intapp Activity Tracker supplements these security capabilities by monitoring how lawyers and staff use sensitive information. It notifies management of suspect activities so that firms can resolve potential problems before they become crises or compliance violations.
“Information loss during lateral departures is another key risk affecting firms, but most organizations have no way to manage this risk because they lack visibility into how lawyers and staff use information,” added Guyer. “Intapp Activity Tracker provides our firm daily reports on usage patterns across our core systems. The product enables us to investigate abnormalities, address areas of concern before they become serious problems, comply with regulatory monitoring requirements, and, ultimately, provide firm management with greater peace of mind.”
“We’re delighted to highlight Hinckley Allen’s success using our products to tackle a diverse range of information security and compliance requirements,” said Pat Archbold, Head of Intapp’s Risk Practice. “Firms like Hinckley set the standard of care across the industry and inspire our team to extend our products’ capabilities.”
