NAPERVILLE, Ill., Jan. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Chicago-area startup and 1871 Member Encrypted Information Exchange, LLC today launches EIE Legal, a secure mobile messaging app for lawyers that puts encrypted transparency in the palm of their hands.
EIE Legal, now available on the App Store and Google Play, offers a solution to lawyers looking for a quick, convenient messaging system that meets their security needs. EIE Legal provides lawyers with a secure method of mobile information exchange and an archived record of those communications to retain for their files.
The inspiration for the app came from one of the founder's experience trying to keep clients updated during fast-paced negotiations. He looked for a messaging app that would allow him to communicate efficiently with his clients and meet the security and record-keeping requirements of legal communications but couldn't find one. So, he decided to build it.
"I know from my own courtroom experience that lawyers and clients want to be able to communicate quickly and often turn to the messaging apps they already use in day-to-day life," said David M. Buddingh, Encrypted Information Exchange founder and president. "Unfortunately, many of the apps out there are non-secure platforms, and lawyers using them are actually putting themselves – and their clients' communications and data – at risk. With EIE Legal, lawyers and their clients get the convenience of a messaging app and the confidence that their text communications are always secure, always transparent, and always recorded."
EIE Legal functions like other messaging apps lawyers and clients are already familiar with, but also encrypts all text messages and keeps a record for safekeeping. It also allows lawyers and clients to share encrypted notes, photos, videos and documents for easy, secure access at any time.
The potential risks of using encrypted messaging apps that don't create records are becoming clearer every day, as with the case of Uber and Waymo employees using non-secure apps to send text messages that automatically delete themselves.
EIE Legal goes beyond end-to-end encryption – data and communications are always encrypted and stored in the cloud. Additionally, EIE Legal automatically creates a record of every text message so users will never be in jeopardy of losing that information or evidence in a text thread – providing the lawyer with the ability to preserve client communication and protect themselves from costly lawsuits.
EIE Legal is a product of Encrypted Information Exchange, LLC, a company established in Naperville, Illinois in 2015. They will be exhibiting at the ABA TECHSHOW in February. The company was founded by David M. Buddingh, David S. Buddingh and Michael T. Mantzke.
