US law firm latches onto cleanDocs

Seattle-based law firm Lasher Holzapfel Sperry & Ebberson has purchased cleanDocs for server-based metadata cleaning. cleanDocs server will enable the firm to minimize the risk of an email data breach by covering all email exit points, including those sent from mobile devices.

Tonya Gere, Systems Administrator at the firm, said an upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 was an opportunity to change metadata cleaning applications.

“We wanted metadata cleaning that would run on the server so as to not interfere with anyone working on the desktop,” explained Tonya.

“At the same time, the firm needed to ensure all outgoing emails would be cleaned of metadata to prevent unintentional data breaches. cleanDocs server checked both those boxes by being the right balance of productivity and protection.”

cleanDocs server protects anyone who sends emails from the desktop, mobile devices, Outlook Web Access, or any other email-enabled application by ensuring no hidden metadata slips through the cracks.

Bob Moore, DocsCorp VP of Sales, Americas, said demand for more robust data leak prevention solutions is only increasing as strict new data protection laws and regulations are enacted.

“US firms are well aware of the risks of hidden metadata, but in the past 12 months, in particular, we’ve seen more and more of them replacing legacy applications with more powerful and user-friendly technology, like cleanDocs.”
