Workshare Launches Professional 8 to Address Legal Sector

File Transfer Security Issues

Workshare, a leading provider of secure enterprise collaboration applications, today announced the launch of Workshare Professional 8. The new version provides current subscribers of Workshare Professional with secure file transfer capabilities, helping its customers reduce the number of unauthorised, 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 organisation. 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.”

Workshare 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.
