The UK’s leading case management software provider, Eclipse Legal Systems, has released a unique secure document delivery and acceptance tool.

Fully integrated with Eclipse’s Proclaim software, SecureDocs is embedded within the system to provide a seamless online solution.

SecureDocs utilises Proclaim’s e-mail messaging function to allow recipients to securely view appropriate documents. Only intended recipients can view documents, as only they will have the prerequisite log-in details. Even if the wrong recipient is e-mailed accidentally, they can do nothing with that e-mail as they have no access to the documents it points to.

As well as ensuring accurate delivery, SecureDocs enables recipients to action documents. This can automatically trigger context-dependent ‘next actions’ within Proclaim Case Management for fee-earners, efficiently progressing cases onwards.

SecureDocs is available for any organisation transmitting confidential, sensitive or personal information.

Steve Ough, founder and chief software architect at Eclipse, said: “SecureDocs is unique in the legal services sector, being the only secure document delivery and acceptance tool to be fully embedded within a case management system. By using SecureDocs, firms can completely remove the risk of sending sensitive information to the wrong person, or inadvertently releasing documents into the wild to be intercepted by malicious users.”

GDPR and the rise of ‘datanapping’ – the new threat to the pockets of law firms

Nigel Wright

You’ve heard about ransomware – a hacker infiltrates your IT systems, locking them down until you pay a ransom. Some studies now estimate that over 50% of businesses have experienced this type of attack in the last year, and it’s particularly prevalent within the legal sector. Previously, firms could protect themselves by having a solid disaster recovery plan in place to ensure they can get back up and running in the event of a disruption. However, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – the new EU-wide regime which comes in effect on 25 May 2018, irrespective of Brexit – means that this approach alone is no longer adequate and security measures must be strengthened to prevent attacks.
