Workshare, a leading provider of secure enterprise collaboration applications, announced today that law firm Irell & Manella has won the Best Industry BYOX Strategy Award at the Ovum BYOX Strategy Awards 2013, following the implementation of Workshare's file sharing and collaboration application.
The panel of judges praised Irell & Manella's BYOX strategy for embracing new technology in order to address the challenges of a changing workplace. Irell & Manella moved to address the security issue of employees using their own devices to work remotely, selecting Workshare's enterprise-class collaboration application to enable its team of lawyers to share, compare, and review sensitive documents securely anywhere, on any device. Workshare's collaborative application provides Irell & Manella's network of lawyers the benefits of secure remote working while boosting employee productivity and satisfaction.
"Workshare enabled Irell & Manella to implement a successful BYOX strategy, giving employees greater flexibility, mobility, and efficiency while ensuring that all activity falls within its security and information management policy," commented Anthony Foy, Workshare CEO. "We're delighted we could play a supporting role in Irell & Manella winning this award and becoming a more flexible, agile business which is better able to service its clients."
Adrian Drury, Head of Ovum's consumer impact on IT practice and head judge for the awards, commented, "Ovum's research has found that corporate BYO activity remains steady, indicating that this is not a passing fad. With 20% of employees bringing in their own devices and applications regardless of corporate approval, there has never been a more important time to put a strategy in place to manage it."
