This webinar took place on April 12, 2021. Watch the ILTA webinar video on-demand here: Seth Hallem, Mobile Helix CEO, discusses current threats to law firms such as Sodinokibi ransomware, REvil, and Pegasus, and how they work. Finally, Seth discusses what you can do and how our LINK system protects against these attacks.
Stephanie Wilkins. The legal profession today is a mobile one, with attorneys practicing anywhere and everywhere with the help of smartphones and tablets. As ubiquitous as they are, though, most lawyers would say they can’t handle all the meaningful work they need to handle on those devices, due to poor document workflows, security concerns, and usability.
When you think about the tools you use most in your day-to-day work, your document management system (DMS) and Outlook are probably at the top of the list. Working in both on your mobile device, though, has historically been a huge struggle, if not impossible. LINK brings them together in a single, secure, easy-to-use app.
Jeff Richardson. LINK from Mobile Helix is a secure system that allows attorneys to use the LINK app, available on the App Store, on either an iPad or iPhone to access email, document management systems, intranet portals, and more. At your firm, you run LINK server software deployed on-premises behind your firm's firewall. I've had a chance to see how LINK works, and it is quite impressive.
Seth Hallem. This latest attack from REvil on Kaseya VSA confirms the obvious – the business of ransomware is here to stay. Whether it is REvil, a spinoff from REvil, or an entirely new organization that is inspired by REvil’s success, a collective reconsideration of how we protect networks and endpoints is overdue. It has become standard practice to disable security software in order to enable functionality, rather than demanding the opposite – that software declare its intended behaviors in order to enable security software to detect anomalous behavior.
Bob Ambrogi. In today’s episode of How It Works, we look at the LINK app from Mobile Helix, enabling attorneys to work from anywhere, securely, on their documents, Outlook email, and firm intranet, from a tablet or smartphone.
To introduce the product and demonstrate how it works, Bob Ambrogi is joined by Seth Hallem, Mobile Helix CEO, co-founder and chief architect.
Maureen Blando. The economics of remote work were positive in 2020. Law firms will likely make changes, for instance in leases, to capitalize on this going forward. Attorneys made a positive adjustment to working from home and would like to retain some of that flexibility in the future.
. MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., July 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mobile Helix, the maker of the LINK encrypted app for attorneys and mobile professionals, today joins the NetDocuments ISV Technology Partner Program to offer containerized mobile workflows with documents in NetDocuments’ cloud document management platform on smartphones and tablets.
With LINK’s unique integration of NetDocuments DMS plus firm email, knowledge professionals can access, review, compare, annotate, and email documents within the security of a single app. LINK allows NetDocuments users to file emails and attachments to the NetDocuments’ DMS, as well as to send and file to the cloud platform. LINK’s predictive filing on mobile devices makes email filing quick and simple.
Nick Rishwain. Check out this episode with CEO Seth Hallem and COO Maureen Blando of MobileHelix. They have built the LINK App for lawyers. Seth is our first guest who has had a previous, highly successful exit from a technology company. After which, he decided to attack this issue in legaltech. Watch the recorded livestream here.
DocsCorp. The LINK App’s ethos is to provide end-to-end workflows for lawyers and legal professionals within the protected container of the app. This means users can complete their business-critical work safely without leaving LINK. Maureen Blando, President, and COO of Mobile Helix, the company behind LINK, said document comparison had been one of the most important features for users from day one.
. Picture this: you are a lawyer who relies heavily on your devices to work outside of office hours. Perhaps you use the morning commute to fire off emails from your smartphone, or maybe you use your tablet on the couch after everyone has gone to bed and the house is finally quiet. While working on these devices, you use a secure app made especially for legal professionals. It has everything you need – access to your document management system, advanced search, Word editing and annotation, and document comparison.
The LINK app provides secure document comparison for mobile professionals. MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mobile Helix, the makers of the LINK encrypted app for lawyers, will demonstrate their new integration with compareDocs from DocsCorp at the NetDocuments ndElevate 2018 Conference, in Park City, UT, November 4th – 8th.
“Legal professionals need to review documents carefully and safely, anytime and anywhere,” said Mobile Helix CEO and Co-founder, Seth Hallem. “Using LINK with compareDocs in-app, lawyers can generate precise and comprehensive document comparisons between document versions, or between email attachments and DMS documents with just a few taps. With the LINK secure container, sensitive data stays safe at all times while providing lawyers with the tools to annotate, edit, and share document redlines and revisions.”
With the LINK app lawyers compare, annotate, search, and email documents using a single, secure app. LINK 3.5 is a significant step forward in empowering lawyers to review, edit, and share work product from their ever-present mobile devices,
Seth Hallem, Mobile Helix CEO & Co-founder. In the investigations of Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen, the FBI has retrieved messages from Signal, Telegram and WhatsApp. While there are weaknesses inherent in all of these apps, the question remains: What does a good data protection scheme look like?
By Seth Hallem, Moble Helix CEO, Co-founder, & Chief Architect. Secure email using S/MIME and OpenPGP is fundamentally broken. Our CEO explains the EFAIL vulnerability and why our LINK Email is not susceptible to EFAIL. What do we do next to protect email?
Maureen Blando, President & COO, Mobile Helix. Last week I attended the sixth annual CodeX FutureLaw Conference, under the canopy of the redwoods on the Stanford University campus. I did not know entirely what to expect, but as my office is a few miles down El Camino Real from Stanford, I thought that it was worth investigating. I found the event to be stimulating and I would like to share what I learned so that others may consider attending FutureLaw in the future.
A good lawyer helps you see around the bend. In my experience over the years as a client, I have found that each time my attorney points out something in a contract or business decision that I had not anticipated, I ignore the next bill when it comes in and I pay it gladly. When I feel that my attorney is simply a contract factory, I look at each bill closely and start to wonder if there is a better way.
Seth Hallem, CEO U& Co-Founder, Mobile Helix. Hackers are siphoning billions from the global economy each year by stealing data for profit. However, in spite of this rising threat, enterprises continue to make the same mistakes over and over again. It is time to change our assumptions and to re-think how we protect sensitive data.
Smartphones and tablets are everywhere, and the discussion about the need to embrace mobile is similarly ubiquitous. However, in our experience, law firms are still in the early stages of embracing mobile devices as an essential work device. There are many reasons to stay away from mobile devices – the security risks inherent in a device that is easily lost or stolen; the conflation of personal and corporate data on a single device; and, perhaps most damningly, the feeling that the mobile device is out of IT’s control. However, it would be a mistake to miss the forest through the trees.
Seth Hallem in CSO Online. In the field of data security, 2018 began with a jolt. The revelation of the Meltdown and Spectre security vulnerabilities has taught us that in 2018 (and beyond), nothing is sacred.
Speculative execution, the architectural concept that is exploited in the Spectre vulnerability, has been in use by mainframe processors since the mid-1970s. It is taught in Computer Architecture 101 in universities around the world. And yet, it turns out that the security implications were never fully understood until about seven months ago.

. Over the last two months, the concept of ransomware has blasted into the public conscious with massive and disruptive cyberattacks. Both ransomware attacks were accompanied by a heavy dose of intrigue, and, for those willing to listen, a stern warning of what is to come. Seth Hallem, co-founder and CEO of Mobile Helix, looks at recent ransomware attacks, which point to fundamental issues that are inherent to the design of the Windows operating system, corporate intranets, and the Internet. Through this lens, mobile operating systems and, in particular, iOS are a seismic upgrade in protecting devices and networks from this type of attack, Seth says.

. While vendors are hard at work getting the most fashionable (mobile) devices ready for every shopping season, security is usually an afterthought. This creates problems for consumers, whose mobile devices are increasingly used for financial transactions, and generally contain personal information. To make things worse, users are rarely aware of the dangers posed by devices with outdated software.
Comment: FBI cracks the iPhone – how and what are the legal IT implications?. On March 28th, the Department of Justice confirmed that it had successfully unlocked the San Bernardino shooter’s iPhone 5C without Apple’s assistance. On that same day, the US government moved to vacate a California court order that had attempted to force Apple to assist in the decryption of the device. While the legal maneuverings are fascinating in their own right, the conclusion leads to an even more fascinating technology discussion – how did the FBI crack the iPhone, and what are the implications of this successful hack?
