secure file share with ownCloud for legal firms

Secure file share and content collaboration

Enable staff to easily edit, share, and access files regardless of their location, on any device. Open Source means it is widely examined and fully auditable, open standards means no vendor lock-ins.

Verifiably secure

ownCloud encrypts files in transit and at rest. For maximum secure file share, use End-to-End-Encryption.  Log and audit actions for compliance with GDPR and HIPAA.

Streamline how your legal firm handles client documents

In the modern legal firm, it is vital to organize legal and other counseling work in the digital realm for more efficiency and productivity. Give authorized staff and the clients themselves access to files, logged for compliance and accountability. At the same time, keep clients’ data safe from unauthorized access.

ownCloud eliminates all your headaches regarding data breach and offers secure file share and collection on your own terms.

Sending documents by mail or using public cloud services is potentially insecure, and also impractical. ownCloud ensures secure file share in terms of confidentiality and regulatory compliance, and is also user-friendly. There is no limit on the size of files you can share with ownCloud. Links can be set up with passwords and expiry dates. File access always takes place on your server and under your control. ownCloud links can of course be sent any which way you want, by mail, by messenger, you name it, without risking security or compliance. 

Work securely with your clients

Your clients expect to be able to provide your legal firm with documents when they see fit. By providing them with a secure file share option and an easy upload venue for their files, you enable asynchronous and efficient collaboration. You can choose to provide them with Guest User status or file drop folder protected by password.

Protect your clients’ data

Your clients trust your legal firm with their sensitive data. Subpar data security has implications for your brand, imperils your regulatory compliance and poses liability risks. So better don’t lose control over where your data is stored or who can access it. Through file classification, secure file sharing processes, rules-based workflow automation as well as logging and auditing, ownCloud makes sure that data access always conforms with policies and is accounted for.

With the File Firewall, an advanced interface with leading Antivirus vendors and comprehensive Ransomware Protection, ownCloud keeps your data safe and ensures secure file sharing. Secure View enables the creation of ad-hoc Virtual Data Rooms to securely share sensitive data with select external contacts.

Use technology to get things done

ownCloud can process large amounts of data fast, but it also has comprehensive automation capabilities.

  • With Classification, Tags, Workflows and File Lifecycle, IT admins have the full toolbox to handle the large amounts of data that can accumulate in a surprisingly large number of court cases, arbitrations, tax audits and consulting mandates.
  • Automate data handling with metadata-based workflows.
  • Sync large amounts of data between office branches with ease and unprecedented scale.
  • Automatically archive and then delete customer data in accordance with GDPR and similar regulations.
