DocsCorp: Concern about Email Data Breaches Has Led to a 69% Increase in the Sales of Information Leak Prevention Software

November 28, 2018

PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 28, 2018--Businesses are turning to technology to eliminate the leading cause of data breaches worldwide – human error. Between January and October 2018 DocsCorp – a leading provider of document productivity solutions – saw a 69% increase in the sales of its information leak prevention software cleanDocs. The number of cleanDocs users increased by 62% in that same period.

North America accounted for more than 59% of global breaches in the first half of 2018*. To give people greater control over their data, and to hold companies more accountable for its protection, North America has strengthened many of its data privacy laws, which include the California Consumer Privacy Act and Canada’s Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). As a result, American and Canadian firms like and have implemented information leak prevention software that includes recipient checking and metadata removal.

Email is by far the most used tool for business communications, and it presents the greatest risk to businesses when it comes to protecting sensitive information. Simple mistakes like sending an email to the wrong person or attaching the wrong file could inadvertently cause a significant data breach.

“Our staff send countless emails every day, and we realized each email sent externally risked leaking sensitive information,” explained Rob Andres at DBL Law. “As a firm, we wanted to focus on data breach prevention rather than on damage control. With cleanDocs, we have peace of mind knowing that our staff has the right tool to stop leaks in their tracks.”

“Firms like Paliare Roland and DBL Law face a major challenge in terms of keeping sensitive information safe from data breaches,” said DocsCorp President and Co-Founder Dean Sappey. “That is why it’s crucial they have the right protection in place to help staff avoid inadvertently causing a breach. With the average cost of a data breach set to reach $150 million by 2020, it’s time every North American organization put the necessary checks in place.”
