Data protection is crucial for law firms    

Your firm’s data is your highest value asset because without it you couldn’t continue to run your firm. Every business is at risk of a cyber-attack or data breach, but law firms are a prime target for cyber criminals because they know you hold high-value assets. Without access to your client, financial or legal case data it’d be impossible to serve your clients, so we prioritise your data’s security and protection to ensure business continuity.

State-of-the-art infrastructure

Osprey is securely hosted in the cloud so you can be confident that your data is protected.

Industry-leading firewall  

Data stored in Osprey is protected by an industry-leading cyber security firewall that monitors incoming and outgoing network traffic.

ISO 27001 accredited data centres  

The UK data centres have highly sophisticated security best practices that limits physical access, and they are annually audited to ensure they are ISO 27001 accredited.

InfraRed and CCTV protected  

Full CCTV, InfraRed perimeter fencing and biometric entrances and exits ensures the physical location of your data is secure.

Data encryption 

To provide a high degree of privacy, Osprey is SSL encrypted which means the data that is transmitted across the web is protected from anyone who tries to intercept the data.

Automatic data synchronisation

Osprey takes advantage of co-located data centres, so the primary Osprey database is synced to a secondary data centre, located in a separate geographical location, automatically ensuring accessibility even if the primary data centre is not accessible.  

Secure product controls

Two factor authentication  

Osprey requires two factor authentication (2FA) to verify every login attempt which can be easily implemented via Google 2FA.

Controlled user logins

Control and monitor the users who can login in your system and provide secure username and passwords.

Permission controls

Restrict accessibility, visibility, and product functionality via role-based permission controls.

Business continuity

Osprey Approach is a cloud-based legal software solution which means you’re naturally protected from disasters that could destroy on-premise solutions. Your data and backups are safely stored in the cloud so if you were unable to visit for the office, no matter the reason, you could still access your data via an internet connection, no matter your location.  For further protection, we have two data centres, in two different locations which mirror each other in real-time. If a disaster were to occur at the primary location, all traffic is automatically re-routed, and your data access would not be disrupted.

Helping you stay compliant  

We implement data security protocols at every stage of your data’s lifecycle to ensure you’re operating using industry best practices. Osprey is hosted on UK data centres so you can be confident you meet certain accreditations, legislations, and compliance requirements. Plus, we can assist you in preparing any documentation you need to showcase your data audit trail. Osprey also includes advanced compliance features and dedicated workflows that help you meet best practices and reduce the cost of staying complaint.
