Summary of Challenges
- Staff could not share confidential information on their own
- IT team was burdened by file-sharing requests
- There were often delays with sending and receiving information
Being one of the largest civil defense litigation firms in the United States, Marshall Dennehey dealt with many civil lawsuits that required a lot of data to be exchanged everyday. This data ranged from personally identifiable information (PII) and protected health information (PHI), to large production files and confidential corporate data.
While existing file sharing solutions were already in place, the solutions were not intuitive and access to the solutions were limited to the IT help desk. As a result, several challenges became apparent:
- Legal staff did not have self-serve access to a file sharing solution
- The IT team was burdened with file sharing requests
- Delays with sending and receiving information often occurred
Marshall Dennehey saw an opportunity to adopt a modern, HIPAA compliant file sharing solution that would enable legal staff to share large sensitive files on their own while maintaining a high level of security. The goal was to increase staff productivity and reduce the burden on the IT help desk.
Marshall Dennehey chose TitanFile as the winning solution. The platform offered a web-based client portal and outlook integration. It was easy to use by attorneys and support staff, did not require ongoing IT support, integrated with the firm’s DMS, and satisfied all of the firm’s security and HIPAA compliance requirements.
TitanFile enabled legal staff to send and receive large content anywhere without the need for IT intervention. External collaborators did not require any onboarding or IT support to use the platform.
In addition to SOC 2 compliance and a robust security program, TitanFile offered state-of-the-art security capabilities including encryption in transit and at rest, granular access controls, audit trails, single sign-on (SSO), and multi-factor authentication. Management, attorneys, and support staff as well as external collaborators, had peace of mind knowing their information was secure at all times.
“It’s really intuitive, our attorneys and staff found it seamless to get started and use it regularly. TitanFile is consistently reliable and when we do large file transfers at all hours of the day, it just works!”
– Lisa Ruane, Manager of Application Services
