LEGALTECH NEW YORK, NYC – January 31, 2011 – At LegalTech New York this week, Vancouver-based Themis Solutions Inc. is pleased to announce improved security for its leading cloud-based legal practice management system, Clio, with the introduction of two-factor authentication. Designed to offer attorneys and their clients an even greater level of security and privacy protection, two-factor authentication was developed as part of Clio’s commitment to be the most secure practice management system in the cloud.
Although the internet is a trusted medium for hosting critical applications and information, passwords are often a weak link in the chain of security between a web application and a user. Clio’s two-factor authentication option allows subscribers to require that passwords be used in conjunction with a secure PIN delivered to a mobile device or other secondary authentication mechanism. This means enhanced security for all users, and ensures that a weak or compromised password can’t be used alone to gain access to sensitive data.
Jack Newton, President of Clio, notes, “Security is a critical component of any cloud-based law practice management solution. At Clio, we continually strive to provide our customers with leading-edge tools and security, and two-factor authentication furthers our commitment to provide our users with the best data security and privacy protection in the market.” Newton continues, “In a world of many passwords, it’s easy for credentials to become familiar, repetitive and ultimately insecure. With two- factor authentication, sensitive firm information remains protected, even if a password becomes compromised.”
