Protect your legal practice

Deal documents, litigation files, tax documents. All of these and more are prime targets for hackers. But now you can stop them from stealing or viewing your most sensitive information.

You already know the risks.

No other business possesses as much confidential information as law firms. Hackers know that, which is why attackers so frequently target legal professionals. Deal documents offer an opportunity for insider trading, which was the case in 2016 when seven New York law firms were hacked in connection with M&A deals. And who can forget the 11 million client documents leaked in the “Panama Papers” hack?

Hackers and cybercriminals never stop finding new ways to profit from other people’s private information. Keeping software and systems up to date, relying on strong passwords, or using a VPN while traveling won’t keep your most valuable files out of the hands of a determined attacker.

Introducing a better way to protect valuable files

Why do data breaches continue to happen?

Atakama is a new, easy-to-use solution to give your business-critical files a last line of cyber-defense that will frustrate hackers and insiders like nothing ever seen before. Here’s how we make your “jewelry safe” uncrackable:

  • Atakama scrambles your company’s or your family’s private files using military-grade AES-256 bit encryption
  • Atakama breaks the key to unlock the 256-bit encryption into multiple shards that are then distributed to multiple physical devices that either you own or to devices owned by a trusted contact
  • Just as multiple key-holders must come together to unlock certain safes in the real world, multiple devices (up to two or more) must physically come together to unlock private files that have been scrambled by Atakama

The chances of a team of hackers descrambling a 256-bit encryption is low. The chances of a team of hackers unscrambling encrypted data and stealing all of the multiple “key-holding” devices is infinitely low.

If you can drag a file to a folder, you already know how to start securing your files with Atakama. Opening encrypted files normally requires setting and entering a password for each one. Atakama’s technology doesn’t rely on any passwords or codes. Each file protected by Atakama is not just encrypted, but is also inextricably linked to more than one of your physical devices (e.g. your computer and your smartphone).

When you open a file protected by Atakama, your linked mobile device receives an approval request as a push notification. When you tap on the big, green “Approve” button on your smartphone, your file instantly opens on your computer. And when doing a keyword search to find a file, Atakama allows your search to include encrypted files. We understand that file-level security cannot disrupt your productivity.

Your client files need a last line of cyber defense

Atakama protects files on any computer running Windows or macOS and works together with Atakama Mobile for iOS or Android. Not only does Atakama protect the files on your computer, it also automatically backs up your protected files to your cloud storage provider so that you (and only you) are always able to access them.

Most operating systems and security solutions focus on “keeping the bad guys out” and don’t provide users with solutions for keeping files protected when someone breaks in. Smart hackers know that attorneys and legal professionals have access to troves of sensitive information which can be easily exploited or sold for profit.

If you think of your client files as precious jewelry, you would naturally consider protecting them in a safe. While governments and large companies have often hired teams of cybersecurity experts to create incredible last lines of defense, we believe at Atakama that everyone in today’s world needs unbreakable “jewel safes."

After all, your reputation doesn't just depend on zealously representing your clients, it also depends on your ability to keep their sensitive information safe and sound at all times.

"...law enforcement discusses hacking and data loss in terms of “when,” and not “if.” Law firms are targets for two general reasons: (1) they obtain, store and use highly sensitive information about their clients while at times utilizing safeguards to shield that information that may be inferior to those deployed by the client, and (2) the information in their possession is more likely to be of interest to a hacker and likely less voluminous than that held by the client."
