  • The need to secure confidential client information against malicious threats and espionage
  • Visibility into devices in the network is very important
  • An overview of various device communications, both within the network and externally
  • Multiple office location deployment, but centrally managed

Challenges

As one of the largest law firms in the Czech Republic and with an international reach, the firm needed to maintain security – not just for its own network, but also for confidential client information. Additionally, it was necessary to ensure compliance with privacy and data protection requirements (GDPR), and protection from advanced threats and espionage. The firm was actively seeking an advanced network security tool. The last requirement was that the solution should be deployed in multiple locations, but with the ability to be managed centrally.

At Kocián, Šolc and Balaštík, we take our clients’ needs very seriously. From the smallest to the largest, all of our clients rely on us to maintain the confidence of the matters in which we represent them. We know that hackers are becoming more and more sophisticated, and that law firms are increasingly targeted. But with GREYCORTEX Mendel implemented in our network, we are able to defend ourselves much more effectively than before, and maintain crucial client confidence and our peace of mind.”

  • Security and visibility demands have been met
  • Multiple offices are secured from a single location
  • The small team is now able to conduct security on the scale of a larger one
  • Regulatory/​legal compliance needs have been met 

Results

The firm uses the GREYCORTEX Mendel all-in-one hardware. Mendel is the prime monitoring solution for the firm’s multiple offices, across major cities, and is able to provide data from each office via a central location. It provides the robust security and detection capabilities that the firm needs. Mendel also enables the firm’s security team to do the work of a larger team with fewer people – providing detection, visibility and forensic analysis, all from one location.
