See how to seamlessly and securely manage high-value content

Work-critical information is often spread across disconnected people, teams and systems. When that information needs to be located or collaborated on, legal and knowledge management professionals struggle to find what they need quickly. To avoid potential land mines, such as missed case deadlines, poor client service delivery or losing a new client pitch, legal teams need full visibility into their organizations’ data store.

Legal Content and Knowledge Management solutions make it easy to find, organize and collaborate on high-value information.

Business impacts

  • Legal data management

    Legal teams need to access sensitive data, such as IP, patents, work product and privileged communications. Information is siloed across disparate systems, making it hard to find and increasing exposure risk. Centralize high-value data and documents.

  • Enterprise search and knowledge management

    Switching between multiple applications or relying on IT for requests is time-consuming, delays the decision process and increases the risk of not finding or misplacing relevant information. Centralize information in a single source of truth.

  • Project collaboration

    Legal teams frequently collaborate with law firms and third-party experts on work product. Sharing work across multiple systems leads to delays, version control issues and other frustrations. Collaborate easier with centralized content management.

  • Data privacy and security

    Cybersecurity threats are on the rise, and many come from within. When sensitive, high-value content is spread across disparate systems without controlled access, vulnerabilities are exposed. Secure information access at the document level.

  • Regulatory and compliance risk

    Meeting increasing regulatory requirements, including data privacy mandates and industry-specific rules, such as HIPAA and FINRA, is more demanding than ever. Bolster records management, privacy and corporate governance compliance to reduce risk.
