No one can see your cloud files without your approval with the new system by Hitachi and TitanFile i

No one can see your cloud files without your approval with the new system by Hitachi and TitanFile in booth #537.  Putting the user firmly in control with hassle-free, hacker-proof security combined with powerful information sharing functionality, Hitachi Solutions America, Ltd. and TitanFile Inc. are announcing a collaborative communications system built for today’s corporate legal departments. Secure client communications are essential to successful law firm operations and the new joint effort allows confidential file sharing anytime, anywhere with the user maintaining control of the encryption key to further safeguard confidentiality.

“One way law firms can mitigate their risks and stand out from their competitors is to offer a higher level of security for their clients’ sensitive documents and an information sharing system that allows staff to provide better, faster and more convenient client service,” said Yuji Nakagawa, vice president, Security Solution Department of Hitachi Solutions America.

With the integrated solution, users will be able to directly control who can access and view files while conveniently sharing documents with clients, legal teams and company management. Sensitive files will automatically remain in an encrypted state as they are distributed across platforms or shared on mobile devices.

  • With its client-side file encryption, Credeon Cloud Data Protection enhances TitanFile file sharing and collaboration services by applying highly-rated FIPS 140-2 certified encryption before files are shared or uploaded.
  • Since the encryption key is protected with the user’s password, no one – not even Hitachi Solutions or TitanFile – can access the encrypteddata without the owner’s authorization.
  • Centralized user management makes it easy to add or remove users and groups through an intuitive security admin console.
  • Role-based access control simplifies security functionality and audited user trails are maintained.
  • Communications are recorded in historical sequence and can be used as evidence, if needed.
  • With the system’s three layers of security, flexible BYOD policy and mobile capabilities, IT management can automate the enforcement of firm-specific risk and file sharing standards.

“Just superimposing a manual security scheme over existing information sharing applications often turns out to be expensive, frustrating and ineffective. The challenge is to provide an elegant solution with an easy-to-use, unified file sharing system that automatically protects files. TitanFile integrated with Hitachi Solutions’ Credeon Cloud Data Protection will bring this next generation of competitive, seamless functionality to law firms,” Nakagawa said.

The integrated solution will be shown February 4-6 at LegalTech New York 2014 at the New York Hilton. Hitachi Solutions America and TitanFile are co-exhibiting and will be available to answer questions at booth #537 or contact
