Milan 3.0 adds capability to manage information security across multiple systems on a "need to know" basis
PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Company news

Prosperoware Milan 3.0, an integrated platform for information governance, now includes a new module that helps firms move gracefully to a "need-to-know"

security model. Milan Confidentiality Management is the latest addition to the product modules Prosperoware offers to help firms manage information security across multiple systems. With Milan Confidentiality Management, firms maintain the ethical walls they have in place for lateral hires and regulatory requirement while giving users the ability to make self-service requests for access to matters and documents and authorizing matter owners and their designees, such as the service desk, to grant or deny access on a need-to-know basis.

This new module, which is a web-based application, provides of layers of governance for different parts of the organization and different business scenarios to help the firm secure matters as confidential without erecting barriers to getting work done. Milan Confidentiality Management provides layers of governance for different parts of the organization to streamline processes for securing matters as confidential without erecting barriers to getting work done. Milan Confidentiality Management makes it easy for small risk teams to establish confidentiality policies and for users and the service desk to work within those policies.

Milan Confidentiality Management addresses three critical challenges law firms have today:

-- The need for unique workflows within the firms' risk management policies

to support stakeholders with different requirements

-- The need to provide on-demand document and matter self-service to make

sharing content with someone else in organization quick and easy

-- The need to prevent accidental failure to follow firm policy Supporting quotes

"One in four law firms reported being hacked last year," said Keith Lipman, President and cofounder of Prosperoware. "As the threat from hackers escalates, law firms and other professional services are taking a hard look at information governance and the steps they need to take to make more information confidential.

"However, an information governance strategy has no value unless end users actually put their documents and email into electronic files and manage them within established policies. That's what this new release of Milan allows them to do without erecting barriers to getting work done."
