How Cloud Computing can help Law And legal Firms?

The Cloud provides flexibility, cost efficiency, resilience and scalability, often providing the highest security and data protection to ensure that all data is safe. Any busy law firm has to manage clients, payroll, cases, employees, documents, deadlines, and more. There are a number of good reasons why the cloud could be the right solution to grow. The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) published a report indicating that a cloud solution can provide sufficient data protection in place. Law and legal organisations will benefit from the lower costs and flexibility of cloud computing. 

 

Increased Security

Security is an issue that is paramount in the legal industry and this is indeed one of the key benefits of migrating to the Cloud. Keeping your data on-premise servers racks even in the most secured buildings is vulnerable to break-ins, deletion, fires and flooding.

With the cloud, files are safe and secure where every scenario has been considered and preventative measures put in place. In the Cloud, the data can be backup or replicated frequently and held for at least 30 days, saving on expensive and troublesome legacy backup tapes. 

The data is subject to excellent redundancy measures in the event of a disk failure. Disk drives are mirrored in an entirely different data centre locations, so even in the event of fire or flood, your data remains safe and intact. In terms of theft, the data centres have impenetrable security, incorporating the latest security technologies.  In terms of online threats, the data centres employ the most advanced Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), Network Behavioural Analysis (NBA) and Denial-of-Service (DoS) Protection – fully protecting your data from existing and future network security threats, viruses and malware.

Scalability

With Cloud technology, regardless of the platform, you can scale up and down with ease. You can add RAM, CPU, size of the disk drive or even another Vertical Machine with a click of the button. This removes the problem associated with the legacy IT infrastructure where everything had to plan in advance.

Law and legal institutions make constant alterations to their business by introducing new or temporarily staff or design a new application therefore the Cloud solutions including infrastructure have the ability to tailor to the system or business specification required at that time.

Cost Savings

It is without the shadow of doubts that costs factor are one of the most decisive in making any business case. PeaSoup offers the Cloud solutions to the law and legal sector with a much-simplified approach – no lengthy contracts, all usage is billed monthly, no hidden charges too. You are getting all the accessibility, support and resilience that they require at the fix and affordable fees.

The Cloud provides dramatically reduced costs from the IT component aspect – backup drives, disks, servers and associated hardware, ongoing software updates and releases, virus protection, firewalls, and expensive network routing equipment, UPS batteries and more becoming very much redundant. All of these components are incorporated under the Cloud platform ensuring all is up to date and exceed the requirements of the current online security landscape.

 

Business Continuity

The cloud solutions are responsible for the uptime, data protection, software updates and if the data is backed up online then the firm is safe no matter what happens. The Solicitors Regulation Authority recommends all law firms have a Business Continuity (BC) strategy followed by a robust Disaster Recovery (DR) plan that can be deployed easily and quickly. This is in case of an emergency situation such as cyberattack, malicious deletion, ransomware, theft, flooding or a fire.

Hybrid Cloud Systems

On-premise private vs the public cloud solutions? There are benefits to both. Therefore, law and legal firms can choose a Hybrid Cloud. It combines the flexibility and affordability of public cloud solutions with the security and control of on-premise solutions. Hybrid cloud allows you to pick and choose services that best suit your business requirements. This enables to take advantage of scalability and resilience without exposing any critical data.
