Our client

Trowers & Hamlins LLP is an international law firm with over 150 partners and more than 900 people located across the UK, Middle East and Asia. They work with governments and businesses around the world.

The Challenge

In terms of IT mobility, the firm’s workforce comprises two groups of users with very different requirements. Firstly, there are many lawyers who don’t need to travel because they deal with local clients. Then there’s another group of mobile ‘VIP’s who spend a lot of time travelling to a wide range of locations, including the Middle East.

Trowers wanted to provide VIP travellers with secure smartphones that were effectively configured to meet Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation, and any other inspections they might need to commit to or audit. The project required a security-first approach in line with GDPR legislation.
