Legal tech win: Shardul Amarchand signs up to Workshare Secure

Leading Indian law firm Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas & Co has selected Workshare Secure to help stop personally identifiable information being shared inappropriately over email.
By applying policy-based rules to content being shared via email, Workshare Secure will enable Shardul Amarchand to protect clients’ data and ensure compliance with GDPR for those located in the European Union.
“As one of India’s premier law firms, we have always taken the protection of client data very seriously. The introduction of the GDPR earlier this year provided the impetus to review and further strengthen our system security and in particular, protect the personally identifiable information of our clients and professionals. The Workshare solution has helped us further strengthen our data security and our compliance with the stringent GDPR rules,” said Jennifer Milford, COO at Shardul Amarchand, which has over 520 lawyers, including over 100 partners.
Shams Khan, head of IT infrastructure & information security at Shardul Amarchand, an iManage document management system customer, said: “The Workshare Secure solution has a unique functionality to ensure documents leaving the firm via corporate email do not contain sensitive personally identifiable information or metadata. The data loss prevention technology was implemented quickly to ensure measures were in place prior to the introduction of the GDPR deadline in May 2018. Workshare now plays a pivotal role in the firm’s compliance with all the legislation we and our clients abide by.”
