What’s in this Fpwebinar?

This webinar will address the challenges like compliance, searchability, and accessibility that arise in this industry and explain how SharePoint can be used as a robust solution for securing your legal documents including client matters, case information and Virtual Room repositories.

  • IT Challenges in the Legal Industry
  • Opportunities for IT
  • Meeting the Needs of Your Stakeholders
  • Rights Management and Security of Documents
  • Protection of Content through Redaction
  • Secure Collaboration in Practice

Challenges that Organizations are up against:

Legal organizations deal with a tremendous amount of information and documents from a number of different sources.

  • Compliance
  • Information Security
  • Document Formats
  • Ability to search documents
  • Ease of Access for Collaboration

Opportunities with SharePoint:

SharePoint is quickly becoming a great way to facilitate electronic storage of client matters, case information, and Virtual Data Room repositories.

  • Centralized
  • Web Accessible
  • Search Enabled

Meeting Needs of all your Stakeholders:

SharePoint out of the box can still fall short.

Users want:

  • Collaboration with no little or no effort
  • Fast access – no downloading, finding the right application.
  • Mobile access

Admins and Owners want:

  • Security that is easy to administer but robust.
  • To avoid having to install applications for specialized file format
  • Easily enable users easily use mobile without opening security pitfalls

Let’s look at a case study:

This involves a company working with Merger and Acquisition deal room VDR (Virtual Data Room). The problem: Securing their SharePoint site was standard, but the documents continued to be a weak point. Documents had to be secured, and certain content had to be removed from the contents of the documents. Viewing required downloading. When they investigated Office Web Apps in conjunction with Rights Management Server to lock documents in the browser, complexity would have significantly increased, while still only address Office documents and PDFs and still did not address having redacted renditions of the documents.

Here’s how Accusoft helped our client:

We implemented a secure architecture for their VDR with a focus on:

  • Secure Collaboration
  • Universal, No Headache Access
  • Easy Administration

In conclusion, SharePoint is a powerful platform for business collaboration and Accusoft’s Prizm Content Connect SharePoint Document Viewer creates a secure collaboration portal from any device with easy administration and makes it easy for your users to adopt.
