Appurity's specialist security and management solutions enable fee earners to maintain high productivity using platforms and applications like Microsoft Teams and iManage, while ensuring the protection of sensitive corporate data and reinforcing the firm’s overall security posture.

With the recent threat actor activity seen within the Legal Sector over recent weeks/months, it is now more important than ever for law firms to make sure that their devices are protected with preventative measures and not reliant on reactive capabilities - Don't let your endpoints be entry points. 

Well known threat actor groups including Lockbit 2.0 are using tactics mapped against the Mitre Attack Framework to target and exploit areas such as Log4J, Active Directory, Windows Event Logs, NIST standards, Group Policy configuration, NTLM, and more! 

Security risks due to misconfigurations are a major pain-point for all organizations. According to the Microsoft Cyber Signals Report over 80% of ransomware attacks are attributable to misconfigurations. 

Today, Secure Configuration Management is non-automated and very manual process. This is ineffective, costly and relies on having skilled resources available across multiple stakeholders. 
This lack of visibility is often why organizations suffer from poor cyber hygiene which leads to a successful attack.

Keepit delivers next-level data protection

What we do: Next-level data protection

We secure your data from your most relied-upon SaaS apps like Microsoft 365 and Azure AD. With the only vendor-independent cloud, we make future proofing all your company’s data not only possible, but extremely fast and easy.

How? Over 20 years ago, our founders and CTO predicted that all software would be in the cloud as a service, and that this data must be protected. Why does this vision matter? It lead to our solution being completely purpose built for cloud SaaS data.

And since we built our solution from scratch and own and operate our own data protection cloud, we can do exactly what we need to do — quickly. It doesn’t get more next level than that.

Keepit today

We’ve architected our own cloud via self-created and self-managed software and systems across global data centers. So, from a data processing standpoint, we're the only vendor involved. One vendor, one data processing. This level of simplicity is found everywhere across the Keepit solution.

And we’re purpose built for the cloud — a design decision that’s a major advantage and one that contributes to our software’s leading security, efficiency, ease of use, and reliability.

Find out more about our platform 

Keepit tomorrow

Secure by design, our role in your future is to stay two steps ahead of whatever comes along that could disrupt your business.

Altogether, Keepit defends your data against the growing list of threats that can disrupt business continuity, potentially costing you millions in downtime, lost revenue, fines from regulatory non-compliance, and damage to reputations.

That way, you can relax, be ambitious, and have peace of mind knowing that your data is always safe and always available.
