Cloud Collaboration Provider Box -- Taking Law Firm Information Risk Seriously

This week cloud collaboration provider Box announced 70% growth in law firm adoption of its service throughout 2012. As industry marketing director Julie O'Brien notes:
  • "Cloud technologies help legal CIOs consolidate a previously fragmented global infrastructure, and give attorneys the tools they need to work with clients anywhere, anytime, including on mobile devices."
  • She reports new customer additions include: Perkins Coie, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, and Gunderson Dettmer
As part of its efforts to address the specific information governance, risk and compliance needs of the legal industry, Box also announced a partnership with IntApp:
  • "Box is announcing a new relationship with IntApp, the leading provider of information security software for law firms, to offer compliance and control over documents shared via Box. Together, Box and IntApp will provide an integration that enables firms to proactively monitor lawyer and staff access to sensitive documents and notifies risk stakeholders about abnormal activity."
  • "Using the Box API, IntApp's Activity Tracker enables firms to set access thresholds on sensitive documents in Box and monitor excessive downloading of firm intellectual property, especially relevant to manage risk affiliated with impending lateral departures."
