Workshare, a leading provider of secure enterprise collaboration applications, announced today that the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) selected Workshare as a finalist for the 2013 Innovative Solution Provider of the Year, part of ILTA’s 4th Annual Distinguished Peer Awards program. Workshare’s innovative approach to efficient and secure file sharing and collaboration positioned the company as a leading ILTA peer that is transforming the industry by addressing critical issues head on.
The company earned finalist status for its trusted and secure collaboration application which enables legal professionals to create, share, and manage high-value content anywhere, on any device. An all-encompassing solution bridging cloud, mobile, and desktop-based environments, Workshare is as intuitive as the consumer-grade tools lawyers are used to, but
provides enterprise security features that IT and law firms require.
Workshare’s selection was based on the delivery of two world firsts. This includes extending policy enforcement and metadata cleaning beyond the desktop environment and into the cloud and mobile environments, directly addressing BYOD concerns by providing users with tighter control over sensitive documents. Additionally, Workshare’s secure mobile app was the first ever to allow collaboration and comparison of multiple documents via iOS and Android devices.
“With today’s law practitioners becoming increasingly mobile, firms must be able to maintain an efficient, collaborative, and secure environment for employees working on-the-go,” said Barrie Hadfield, CTO at Workshare. “Our latest product upgrade, Workshare Professional 8, illustrates our commitment to innovation by addressing users’ needs for simple file sharing, while maintaining the IT departments’ requirements for control around data and documents.”
Finalists also included Workshare’s strategic partners, Traveling Coaches and Net Documents. Traveling Coaches was presented with the award at the annual awards ceremony on August 20th at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The ceremony honored ILTA peers that have delivered business value and a transformational impact through their innovations, implementations and best practices. Both company and personal achievements were recognized, including those of several Workshare customers and partners.
