Bricker & Eckler LLP, a leading Midwest law firm with offices throughout Ohio and clients across the United States, is strengthening its existing iManage Work implementation in the iManage Cloud by adding two iManage applications – iManage Security Policy Manager and iManage Threat Manager – to manage the firm’s global security policies and seamlessly protect critical client information.
With iManage Security Policy Manager, Bricker & Eckler gains a scalable way to manage ethical walls, segment data and implement a “need-to-know” security model. iManage Threat Manager creates a unique electronic thumbprint from historical data for each user to detect internal and external threat actors with the highest level of accuracy.
“We have over 25 million documents in the iManage platform and managing ethical walls is critically important to our firm,” said Sam Shipley, Chief Information Officer, Bricker & Eckler. “iManage is taking a much more intelligent approach to the challenge of implementing and managing security policies than other vendors on the market. The fact that Security Policy Manager works in real time, walling off sensitive data, is incredibly valuable.”
Because iManage Security Policy Manager is seamlessly integrated with iManage Work, security updates are efficiently applied, eliminating the lags and system performance issues typically associated with large volume security policy updates. “Everyone understands that data security is extremely important,” added Shipley. “Protecting our clients’ data is the number one priority. Having the ability to manage rules and receive continuous alerts as well as having the security set directly on the document made this an easy decision.”
Both applications will be deployed in the iManage Cloud providing the firm with comprehensive functionality delivered with rapid implementation and increased IT agility. Together, these applications will enable the firm to take a holistic approach to defining and managing security policies and identifying malicious user behavior through an integrated solution.
“Today’s security challenges require a thoroughly modern approach, delivered by vendors who can provide a fully integrated suite rather than individual point solutions,” said Dan Carmel, Chief Marketing Officer, iManage. “With its selection of iManage security products, Bricker & Eckler is helping ensure that it has multiple layers of security in place to meet strict client demands for protection of privileged and sensitive information.”
