WindTalker Inc. introduced Monday its new content security platform that offers law firms complete control of sensitive information throughout its lifecycle. By providing granular protection of content versus the file, WindTalker enables secure information sharing capabilities in the industry. In addition to the added security, clients see the value-added benefit of workflow and process efficiencies that save time and money.
WindTalker employs Rights Based Access Permissions to ensure only the appropriate internal and external audiences have access to information. WindTalker’s content encryption provides essential paragraph-by-paragraph, line-by-line, word-by-word protection. The platform automatically logs events for auditing purposes and also supports privilege logs as well.
In existing environments, legal professionals should take every precaution possible to eliminate inadvertent and inappropriate data leaks. Built directly into Microsoft Word and Adobe Acrobat, users can classify, encrypt and redact content.
Once content is protected, WindTalker provides patented Secure Data Portability. Each individually embedded encipherment protects sensitive information with FIPS 140-2 certified AES 256 encryption algorithms. The encrypted information is now protected wherever it goes, even when copy and pasted, and throughout its entire lifecycle. Attorneys and firms retain full control over information access, even when sending documents to cloud-based applications, flash drives, courts or opposing counsel.
“We are excited to introduce WindTalker to legal professionals at ILTACON. The WindTalker content security platform protects sensitive information, reducing and virtually eliminating the harmful risks to both firms and their clients,” said Christopher Combs, president and CEO of WindTalker. “However, the value proposition of WindTalker goes beyond just the security of information. WindTalker aims to improve legacy business processes for law firms and improve regulatory compliance for client privacy and confidentiality. Truly a revolutionary product, WindTalker has infinite potential to benefit all types of professionals, including lawyers, legal staff and electronic discovery professionals. Several partners, firms, clinics and cities have already successfully deployed WindTalker in advance of our upcoming launch, as we felt it was critical to gain domain knowledge before we fully launched into the market.”
