Law firm secures sensitive data by reducing its risk exposure with Netwrix Auditor
Netwrix, a vendor of information security and governance software, today announced that the audit intelligence provided by Netwrix Auditor enables Day Pitney to classify its sensitive data, analyze how exposed that data is and enhance the security of its most critical IT systems.
Day Pitney is a full-service law firm with more than 300 attorneys in 13 offices in Boston, Connecticut, Florida, New Jersey, New York, and Washington, D.C. The firm stores a vast amount of corporate and client data. Therefore, the IT team needed to gain full control over activity across the IT infrastructure and deep insight into sensitive content stored on file shares.
Day Pitney chose Netwrix Auditor for its accurate data discovery capabilities and agentless audit data collection that does not degrade system performance. By using Netwrix Auditor, the firm achieved the following results:
- Continuous discovery of sensitive data. The IT team runs discovery of sensitive data across its file shares on a weekly basis so they can ensure that all sensitive data is stored in secured locations.
- Better control over user privileges. Netwrix Auditor provides precise information on what privileges and data access rights users have, so the IT team can regularly check that they are in line with business needs and remediate any privilege escalation.
- Visibility into IT risks. Netwrix Auditor sheds light on misconfigurations that could expose Day Pitney to unnecessary risks, enabling the IT team to promptly mitigate them.
As a security professional, there are three things you want to know: where your sensitive data is, what the users are doing, and what privileges they have. Netwrix Auditor gives you the answers by providing a quick, broad view of everything you need to know. What I also like is that Netwrix Auditor enables me to secure data and the IT environment without interrupting business processes for users.

Law firms process large volumes of critical data and must regularly demonstrate their reliability to customers, so data security must be among their top priorities. Continuous data classification is the key because it helps organizations accurately identify data that needs protection and prioritize their security efforts in a risk-based way.
