Divide helps law firms embrace employee-owned devices with ease

NEW YORK, Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Divide, maker of the most secure, usable and accessible BYOD container, announced that law firm Simpson Millar Solicitors LLP chose Divide as its BYOD solution for its ability to secure business data and lower mobility costs.

The UK national law firm, with more than 150 years of experience, needed a tool to support its growing fleet of employee-owned mobile devices and migrate existing corporate users from their BlackBerry phones. The firm required a solution that was able to maintain a high level of security to comply with the UK's Data Protection Act.

With Divide, Simpson Millar was able to retire its BlackBerry deployment, which allowed it to slash its mobility budget by more than 50 percent per user. With the savings, the firm was able to double the number of users with access to secure email without sacrificing on the data protection it was used to.

"With Divide, we could give our employees email without paying the price for BlackBerry. When required, we can just wipe the data on their phone," said Jonathan Fairchild, assistant IT manager at Simpson Millar. "I just like the fact that it works, knowing we can do secure email without a hassle."

Fairchild said the Divide deployment not only met the firm's technical needs, it has won over IT and employees with its simplicity, easy set-up and user experience. He said employees are enjoying the way Divide's container separates business and personal data and are using their mobile devices for work more during non-business hours. That is making the firm more responsive and productive, said Fairchild.

"If people respond to some more emails, we benefit and this pays for itself," Fairchild said. "And that's exactly what we found."

Divide's comprehensive data security, which includes government grade encryption, ensures law firms can protect their sensitive client data. With its light-weight deployment and simple set-up, Divide appeals to smaller businesses with fewer IT resources as well as larger companies that need an easy and trouble-free rollout.

"Divide delivers the entire package for law firms such as Simpson Millar, providing impeccable security while empowering IT and employees with tools that make their lives more productive and enjoyable," said Alexander Trewby, chief operating officer of Divide.
