Accellion, provider of the enterprise content firewall that consolidates, controls and secures sensitive third-party communications, today announced it has once again been rated the number one choice among the largest global law firms for sharing sensitive content. It was rated tops by the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) for the sixth straight year.

For its 2019 Technology Survey, ILTA queried more than 116 000 attorneys and 240 000 staff from 537 global law firms. The survey reports that over one third (35%) of firms employing 700 or more attorneys use Accellion for hosted file-sharing and large file transfers. Of the 17 solutions mentioned, Accellion was the number one choice by an ample margin.

When asked to select their firms’ three biggest security challenges, over one third of respondents indicated user behaviour (39%), followed by social engineering and phishing (27%), and client security requirements (24%). Other priorities include compliance and enforcement (19%), and client audits (15%).

When law firms or other organisations that handle confidential information are unable to see what’s happening with their sensitive data, everyday workflows expose their firms to data breaches and compliance violations. The Accellion enterprise content firewall protects organisations by locking down the exchange of proprietary information across e-mail, mobile, Web collaboration, SFTP, form-based workflows, and automated file transfers. Total visibility enables complete compliance and control over all information shared with clients, partners and other third parties.

“Confidentiality and verifiability are critical to attorney-client communications. Otherwise, criminal cases, contract negotiations, M&A transactions and other legal activities break down,” said Yaron Galant, chief product officer at Accellion.

“With Accellion, legal professionals advise their clients and confer on sensitive legal documents with complete confidence. We’re proud to be the trusted choice among the world’s largest law firms for sharing sensitive content and large files.”

Accellion’s legal customers include leading law firms from around the globe: Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen & Loewy LLP, Cahill Gordon & Reindel LLP, Willkie, Farr & Gallagher LLP, Squire Patton Boggs (US) LLP, Ropes & Gray LLP, Dentons Canada Services Limited Partnership, Seyfarth Shaw LLP, Latham & Watkins LLP, Foley & Lardner LLP, and Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP.
