When it comes to client matters, security and compliance can never be an afterthought. MyWorkDrive deploys defense-grade security controls and governance capabilities to ensure files remain secure, access is tightly restricted, and your firm maintains compliance. See our cryptographic algorithm validation here. This allows MyWorkDrive to meet and exceed regulations like HIPAA, FINRA, FEDRAMP, and GDPR.

  • Secure File Storage Access: Unlike cloud file-sharing services that require uploading confidential case files, MyWorkDrive allows law firms to keep all sensitive client data securely within their own environment. Your important legal documents remain intact, whether stored in on-premises file servers, network attached storage, Microsoft cloud services like Azure or SharePoint, or other private cloud repositories. With MyWorkDrive, there’s no need to migrate or transfer case files outside of your firm’s control. All data stays securely under your governance and compliance policies within your private cloud infrastructure.
  • Data Leak Prevention: Safeguard against data leaks and maintain regulatory compliance for your law firm, without hindering productivity. With MyWorkDrive, your staff can securely view and edit Office files online while powerful security controls operate behind the scenes. All file access is encrypted, logged, and searchable, with watermarking and time stamps to deter misuse. Our secure viewer prevents unauthorized copying or printing of confidential content. Plus, alerts notify you of any suspicious user activity, allowing you to take timely action against potential breaches or policy violations.
  • Device Approval and MFA: Law firms can leverage MyWorkDrive’s integration with DUO 2FA or any SAML identity provider to enforce two-factor authentication for secure remote access to case files and client data. Prevent unauthorized devices from connecting to your file shares by requiring pre-approval from IT administrators. Gain visibility into usage patterns with detailed logs showing user access times, last logins, operating systems, and more for all devices accessing your firm’s confidential data remotely.
  • Regulatory Compliance: MyWorkDrive delivers the robust security safeguards and compliance capabilities required by law firms and legal organizations. Our solution meets stringent standards such as CMMC, FIPS, FINRA, FEDRAMP HIPAA, and GDPR. By deploying MyWorkDrive within your firm’s existing Windows file server environment, you create a private secure cloud that facilitates regulatory compliance. This allows your legal teams to gain secure remote access and file collaboration capabilities while ensuring all data remains under your firm’s control and governance policies.

Protection Against Modern Threats

The financial and reputational impacts of a data breach or malware infection can be catastrophic. Read more about cyber attacks against law firms here. MyWorkDrive incorporates multiple layers of defense to ensure your critical data assets remain insulated from internal and external threats.

  • End-to-End Encryption: For law firms handling sensitive client data, MyWorkDrive ensures all information remains encrypted during transmission using advanced SSL/TLS 1.2 security protocols – the industry standard for data encryption in transit. Additionally, MyWorkDrive seamlessly supports and provides secure remote access to files that are encrypted at rest using Windows Server’s built-in encryption features. This end-to-end encryption safeguards confidential case files, communications, and documents as they move between your firm’s private servers and authorized users’ devices, preventing unauthorized interception or data leaks.
  • Ransomware Prevention: The impacts of a ransomware attack can be devastating for legal organizations – from breaching client confidentiality to extended disruptions in billable work and case preparation. MyWorkDrive’s secure remote access architecture prevents this by never syncing or caching files locally on user devices. This approach creates an air gap against the lateral movement of ransomware, safeguarding your critical case files and data whether stored on-premises or in the cloud.
  • Always Up to Date: Consistent security updates and patches ensure effortless yet secure file sharing for law firms, protecting against the latest vulnerabilities without any IT overhead. MyWorkDrive software is updated regularly ready to be patched alongside your Windows Update patch policies.
