Egress Software Technologies, a leading provider of email and file encryption software to professional services firms, today announces that regional law firm Thomson Snell & Passmore has selected Egress Switch to protect client information sent by email and offer a simple mechanism to transfer large files securely.

David Bennett, Head of Information Systems at Thomson Snell & Passmore, explains: “As a firm, we are very proud of our reputation in the market, and one of the major reasons for our success has been the level of long-term trust we have built with our clients. Preserving this trust is of paramount importance to the future of our business, which is why we must guarantee the security and confidentiality of highly sensitive client information.

“By selecting Egress Switch, we are able to guarantee 100% client confidentiality and demonstrate tangible efficiency and costs savings when sharing electronic information,” Bennett continues. “This can be via email, large file transfer or removable media, which means that in many cases, clients can use a single system to access confidential information and avoid the unnecessary burden of ‘deal rooms’ that require additional usernames and passwords.

“We are also seeing huge benefits from the Egress Switch licensing model, which allows recipients of Switch emails to reply securely and free of charge as many times as they need. As a result, we are able to offer our clients a service that not only gives us peace of mind when handling sensitive information, but also provides the firm with a differentiating service that other legal practices cannot offer. In the current competitive legal services landscape, this is a fantastic selling point.”
