Cheshire and Merseyside Digit@ll Awards 2019

5th July 2019

Pervade Software's CTO, Jonathan Davies, joined members of the team from Liverpool Women's NHS Foundation Trust to be highly commended in the Digit@ll Secure award at the Cheshire and Merseyside Digit@ll Awards, hosted by iLinks X Innovations Conference in Aintree Racecourse on 4th July 2019.  This award was in recognition of the work done across the Trust, which embarked on a very ambitious enterprise infrastructure refresh and strengthening of their Cyber Security provision in March 2018 with the aspiration of making the Trust's IT and critical clinical systems one of the most secure in the UK.

Using the ubiquitous monitoring and compliance platforms offered by Pervade Software's OpView™ and OpAudit™ software, the Trust were able to place throughtime and intime monitoring of all technical and organisational controls in place and successfully achieve Cyber Essentials Plus certification in September 2018.

LWH were the first hospital to use Pervade Software's cutting edge technology and the approach can be adopted easily via a Blueprint model for other organisations, with all Pervade software's products now able to be purchased through the Fortrus Framework for NHS procurement. LWH have agreed to share with their regional and STP partners the approach and have already arranged a number of best practice briefing workshop sessions.

Pervade Software would like to thank the trust for the opportunity to help them with this ongoing challenge and wish them continued success as we move forward to continue to make the Trust's IT and critical clinical systems one of the most secure in the UK.

TW:detect wins big at The Lawyer Awards 2019

27th June 2019

Taylor Wessing has won the Most Innovative Use of Technology at The Lawyer Awards 2019 for TW:detect.

Created by Taylor Wessing and Pervade Software, TW:detect scans client websites for indicators of compromise. The technology is the first of its kind in the legal market and Taylor Wessing is the only law firm in the market to have access to it.

The catalyst for developing this new tool was malware campaigns that affected a number of e-commerce websites, aiming to harvest credit and debit card details.

The tool works by scanning client websites for indicators of compromise drawn from a wide range of feeds. The firm will receive an alert with details of the apparent compromise, which is then raised with the client and their security teams.

Following the launch in October 2018, the team has developed five new use cases. These include protecting ecommerce websites and safeguarding customer data and clients' brands on the dark web, as well as monitoring the dark web for potential risks to clients' businesses.

Partner and head of the firm’s cybersecurity team, Paul Glass, said: "There is far more illegal and infringing activity taking place than people are aware of. With TW:detect, we have developed  a tool that enhances detection capabilities and reduces the amount of data theft our clients could face and also scans the dark web for particular threats to our clients. This win underlines how important and how innovative this tool truly is."

Judges added: “It is refreshing to see that a law firm is getting involved in an initiative to detect potential breaches of the law, rather than waiting in the wings for clients to approach them after they have become victims of an actual breach. Having experienced lawyers at hand to follow up on any breach gives Taylor Wessing an advantage over tech companies that may licence a competing product, but can’t provide the relevant legal support."

The ceremony took place at Grosvenor House Hotel on 25 June.
