Our Solution

Don't let the bad guys win!

Cybersecurity must be a priority.

If you don't have the tools in place to protect your firm, Cybercriminals can and will steal your credentials and cause havoc... Everything you’ve worked so hard to build within your law firm could be lost.

BobaGuard is your one-stop solution that protects you from the threats you know and the ones you don’t know.

We believe you shouldn’t need to be the security expert.

Reduce Human Error

Reducing human error and empower your team's ability to identify and stop threats by providing engaging Cybersecurity Training and ongoing Phishing Simulations

Contingency Strategy

If something does go wrong, and your firm experiences a breach, our library of IT Security Policies, along with protection for 365 and G-Suite Workplace data ensure you are prepared.

Want to spend less time worrying about cybersecurity?

BobaGuard is for you if...

The Average Costs of a databreach for a small business is $108,000

Stop hackers before they ever gain access

I don’t want to see you waste any more time dealing with security threats and data breaches.

BobaGuard is similar to insurance. You purchase insurance not because it is exciting and will help you grow your practice, but so that you have full confidence that IF something were to occur you would be protected.

You could absorb a blow of a lawsuit with far less stress and worry WITH insurance than without. The metaphor carries to cybersecurity solutions and taking the necessary measures to protect yourself NOW. Not tomorrow. Not next month. And certainly not AFTER you suffer a data breach.

No Long Term Contracts

We will take the responsibility of Cybersecurity Protection for your firm off your plate; for less than the cost of one billable hour

Even though it might not seem like it, it’s never been easier to put the right security solutions in place that will drastically lower your risk of experiencing a data breach. It’s possible to apply best-in-class security protocols to protect your law firm from a data breach, without wasting time (and money).

There are hundreds of lawyers we’ve already helped—attorneys in all practice areas throughout North America—who are fully confident in their security measures –they have drastically reduced their risk of a data breach while simultaneously leveraging their comprehensive security measures into a differentiator –something your competition is behind on.

While working with these lawyers... I’ve discovered one clear lesson—there is a proven formula for reducing your risk of a data breach, while also increasing your protection.

The process is now quite simple, and you can use it to fill the gaps in your security measures and fortify your law practice from cybercriminals.

Multiple Threats Require Multiple Layers of Security

Think about the many layers of security people use to protect their homes. They put up fences, door locks, alarm systems, canine security and lock up their most valuable possessions. If all those fail, they can always fall back on insurance to replace what’s been lost.

That’s layered security—and the same approach is needed to secure your law practice.

There is no “silver bullet” that can protect against such a wide range of threats.You need to move beyond simple antivirus and implement a solution that brings together multiple security tools.

The key is in the redundancy designed in this approach:If one security control fails or is bypassed, the other overlapping defenses should be there to mitigate the threat.

Here is EXACTLY What You Get With

What Others In Legal Field Have To Say About BobaGuard

Don't just take our word for the value of BobaGuard!

  • Data from the Clio Legal Trends Report continues to show that tech adoption and law firm growth are highlycorrelated. Similarly, ignoring tech, such as data protection software and services, correlates with shrinking revenue. A law firm's viability depends on its security measures in our increasingly virtualizedworld, where case management, payments, and calendaring exist more often in the cloud. The time and cost savings of cloud-based work far outweighthe cost of smart solutions protecting it. BobaGuard empowers and shieldsfirms from the daily threats any firm could face at any moment. What I find especially remarkable about their solution is you don't just get the software and monitoring, but also training, so there is not just an installation of code, but a systemic, behavioral shift after adopting their offering. By targeting the technical and behavioral elements of security protection, they hit the nail on the head."

    Maddy Martin

    VP of Marketing, Smith.ai

  • Solo and small law firms continue to bear the brunt of data security rules and regulations, which continue to proliferate every year, as do the threats those rules and regulations are meant to protect against.It can be a confusing maze for attorneys, who tend to either ignore the problem or flail away at it, cobbling together misaligned technology solutions with the best of intentions.But, what if there were a single solution that covered the entire spectrum of data security threats, that was also built for solo and small lawyers, with an affordable price tag to match?Look further than BobaGuard, offering a curated blend of best-in-breed security solutions for modern law firms.
