Cyber risk in the legal sector

Due to the volume of data, sensitive information and financial responsibility held by legal firms, this sector is now a priority target for cybercriminals.

Legal firms need reliable defences

As simple or advanced as you want it to be, the SenseOn platform can automatically detect even the most advanced threats, including the notorious NotPetya ransomware, which brought the global law firm DLA Piper to its knees in 2019, as soon as they enter your system. Any instances of suspicious movement of sensitive data, regardless of whether it happens within or beyond the firm, are flagged as well. 

"We’d been on the other side of information leaks, representing clients on the legal side, so we knew what the impact of a breach could be, and we instantly felt that SenseOn was a must have."

Andrew Walles, IT Solutions Architect, Harbottle & Lewis.

What legal firms love about SenseOn

Minimal effort required to correlate data

The nature of legal work means that the volume of data needing to be protected is extremely high. This, in turn, generates a significant amount of security data. SenseOn correlates all of this data into one usable format so analysts can instantly find out who, what, where, when and how without having to try and link up information from disparate sources.

Direct observation of your network

As legal teams are becoming more distributed through remote working or multinational offices, it is becoming even harder to access network information with traditional tools. SenseOn’s Universal Sensor collects data across remote workers, corporate offices, production sites and cloud instances at once with an EPNS service to correlate endpoint information and the network data at the point of being recorded. 

Drastic reduction in blind spots

With sensitive data comes great responsibility. It is a top priority that there are no security blind spots in a legal firm’s digital estate. Any gap could be an entryway for adversaries to access confidential information. Our Universal Sensor provides specific, granular information without the traffic jam of lots of different tools to stop adversaries penetrating your estate. 

Reduction of noise

As with many security teams, resources for cyber security within legal firms are often thinly stretched. As such, there is rarely the capacity to resolve the thousands of alerts that are generated by traditional security tools. Using a highly accurate AI based reasoning framework, SenseOn only brings true positive alerts to the attention of analysts, dramatically reducing security operating costs.

Loved by teams and companies you know.

We do security differently.
