PayneGroup and Biscom Deliver Improved Email Security
CHELMSFORD, Mass. --(Business Wire)--
As more and more law firm CIOs and IT professionals struggle to protect
confidential information from unauthorized access, PayneGroup and
Biscom, two of the legal industry's leading security solution providers,
are delivering an increased level of protection for client documents and
The companies have seamlessly integrated PayneGroup's metadata cleaning
and Biscom's secure document delivery technologies to interoperate in a
Microsoft (News - Alert) Outlook environment. With this integration, PayneGroup's
Metadata Assistant will clean email attachments of harmful hidden
metadata and Biscom Secure File Transfer will redirect the email as a
secured, encrypted delivery.
"The protection of confidential client data demands that every
precaution be taken with document delivery. Not only does the delivery
need to be encrypted from unauthorized access and delivered to only
designated individuals, it also needs to be clean of metadata prior to
that delivery. PayneGroup's Metadata Assistant connects directly with
Biscom's Outlook add-on to ensure maximum security with a minimal effect
on work habits and productivity," said Charles Magliato, Legal Program
Director for Biscom.
"Our collaboration with Biscom brings a new level of security to the
Microsoft Outlook environment," says Donna Payne, CEO of PayneGroup.
"The seamless integration of our security products significantly reduces
the risk of data breaches without changing user behavior."
The integration of the PayneGroup Metadata Assistant and Biscom Secure
File Transfer products will be demonstrated in an upcoming International
Legal Technology Association (ILTA) product biefing on May 18, 2012 at
noon ET. Register for the ILTA product briefing at http://bit.ly/HBaNs0.
