Moving Beyond Rule-Based Systems to Protect Employees

  • 11 April 2019

Top 100 UK Law Firm, Foot Anstey, enjoys a reputation as an energetic, proactive firm, combining technical efficiency with a problem solving approach. This is supported by the firm’s top band rankings in independent legal directories, Chambers UK and Legal 500. Putting clients at the heart of the business and developing and investing in talent have been key to growth. The firm now operates out of seven locations and has over 500 employees.

Foot Anstey is protecting employees with Tessian Guardian and Tessian Constructor. 

“Tessian’s low user disruption and intelligent predictions have proved to be a sophisticated and risk attractive improvement to disabling autocorrect in Outlook.”

The firm’s innovative IT and Risk teams identified that the risk of sensitive information being accidentally sent to the wrong person needed addressing. After dismissing the rule-based solutions on the market due to high user interruption, Foot Anstey opted for Tessian’s unique approach of intelligently preventing misdirected emails through machine learning.

After an initial period, Tessian presented a detailed report containing email statistics and misaddressed emails caught by Guardian. As well as protecting several emails from being sent to the wrong recipient, Tessian has also provided Foot Anstey with a valuable insight into their email traffic and common sending behaviors. Tessian is now used by Foot Anstey to prevent multiple potential data leaks every day.
