  • 12 March 2019

Travers Smith is protecting employees with Tessian Guardian and Tessian Constructor.

“Tessian’s ability to prevent misaddressed emails using artificial intelligence is unrivalled in the market and it is now something we consider a crucial part of our firm’s cybersecurity strategy.”
Ann Cant IT Director

Given the highly sensitive nature of the work performed and the client confidentiality requirements outlined by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, securing their email environment from human error was a key priority for the firm.

Risk and IT teams were acutely aware of the potential risks from misdirected emails and chose Tessian Guardian because of the admin – free nature of the product and minimal disruption and effort that it requires from end users at the organization. Travers Smith successfully deployed Tessian firm wide with minimal effort from the firm’s IT team.

After a set period of time using the software, Travers Smith was presented with a comprehensive report containing details of Tessian’s performance and examples of misdirected emails that had been prevented.

Thanks to Tessian, Travers Smith is now better equipped to protect clients’ sensitive information and avoid the scenario of confidential information accidentally being sent to the wrong people. Moreover, Tessian allows the firm to demonstrate diligence to clients and regulators by showing that the risk is being measured and managed appropriately.
