Law company protects its information assets with DeviceLock.

DeviceLock : 28 April, 2008  (Application Story)
Information protection for respected law firm enabled using DeviceLock for controlling access to USB ports, WiFi and other system endpoints.
Leading law firm Paris Smith and Randall LLP has demonstrated the value that it places on information security and confidentiality of data by purchasing endpoint security software DeviceLock. This ensures that no information can be removed or copied from the corporate system without permission and gives the firm absolute confidence in its security.

DeviceLock controls access to all ports and devices, including USB ports, CD-ROMs, storage devices, MP3 players, FireWire, WiFi and Bluetooth, as well as protecting organisations from keylogging attacks. Unlike solutions that simply disable the port completely, DeviceLock offers a layer of management, so that the IT department can change settings as appropriate from a central location making the solution completely flexible. With DeviceLock, Paris Smith & Randall LLP can centrally and granularly define which types of data specified individuals or groups are allowed to download on to a Windows Mobile or Palm OS device. It covers a full range of mobile device threats including the possibility of uncontrollably losing valuable data when a user syncs their mobile device with their work PC.

"I wanted to adopt an endpoint security system after witnessing a virus being transferred to an employee's own PC via a USB stick. It is not practical to prohibit the use of USB sticks but we need to ensure they do not compromise our security," said Philip Rich, IT manager at Paris Smith and Randall LLP. "DeviceLock has enabled us to put in place policies and enforcement technologies to ensure that they do not pose a security threat to the company. DeviceLock is a cost effective and flexible solution. From the minute we tested it we knew it was the right system."

"Paris Smith and Randall LLP is a well-respected law firm that prides itself on its innovative use of IT. The company is proactively ensuring it isn't vulnerable to security breaches by putting all the necessary systems and protection in place before a problem has ever occurred," said Sacha Chahrvin, managing director at DeviceLock UK. "Not only does DeviceLock protect Paris Smith & Randall's data, and that of it clients, it also helps to ensure that the firm complies with data protection legislation."
