Workshare Launches Professional 8 to Address Legal Sector File Transfer Security Issues
LAS VEGAS --(Business Wire)--
a leading provider of secure enterprise collaboration applications,
today announced the launch of Workshare Professional 8 at the ILTA
Conference 2013. The new version provides current subscribers of
Workshare Professional with secure file transfer capabilities, helping
its customers reduce the number of unauthorized, consumer-grade systems
being used by staff.
Workshare Professional 8 bridges the gap between users that seek
simplicity and ease of use, and IT departments that need to retain
control, visibility, and auditability of documents inside and outside of
the firewall. Professional 8 provides users with end-to-end encryption
and control that is significantly more secure than email and
self-provisioned file sharing applications, meeting the strict
compliance mandates associated with highly regulated markets.
Anthony Foy, CEO at Workshare said: "Legal firms face significant
security issues when sending confidential files to recipients outside of
their organization. On top of that, mobility and bring-your-own-device
(BYOD) trends mean that data policy mandates are harder to enforce,
putting enormous pressure on legal IT."
Foy continued, "Workshare is proud of its longstanding partnership with
the legal community, protecting sensitive documents attached to email
for more than a decade. Professional 8 now allows secure file transfer,
extending that protection into the cloud. We now allow users and IT
support staff to control and protect how highly sensitive information is
shared and accessed by people outside of the firm."
Workhare Professional 8 includes the following enhancements:
Simplifies comparison and extends supported files to non-text-based
PDFs by integrating OCR functionality in the desktop solution
Offers new interactive protect features to simplify metadata cleaning,
avoid email pop-ups, and eliminate Outlook add-in issues
Saves redlines and finished documents as PDF/A, a mandatory archiving
system to support in U.S. Court filings
Integrates comparison functionality with NetDocuments, completing a
wide range of ECM/DMS vendor integrations, including SharePoint,
iManage, and OpenText.
With 98% of the world's top law firms already using Workshare
Professional, users can continue working the way they always have.
Professional 8 extends familiar Workshare protection and comparison
offerings outside of the firewall quickly and efficiently.
