How Law Firms Can Get the Most from Their Relationship with Their Cloud Service Provider

About 60% of law firms partner with a cloud service provider for some or all their IT needs, according to the American Bar Association.

Cyber Incident Response Plan: What Is It and Why Your Firm Needs One

Of course, the first line of defense is proactive protection, but if those measures fail, how does your firm know what to do in the case of a cybersecurity incident?

Why More Law Firms Are Moving to Private Cloud Solutions

Law firms have traditionally been late adopters of new technologies, including cloud solutions.

How to Vet a DaaS Provider

Desktop as a Service (Daas) is a cloud-based service in which virtual desktops are streamed to end users over the internet. DaaS has many benefits for companies. Because it is typically licensed on a per-user basis, it can easily be scaled up or down depending on the firm’s needs. It also securely allows for a flexible work environment and a “BYOD” policy, permitting users to safely log in from any location and any device they choose, such as a laptop, desktop, thin client, smartphone, or tablet. Before you consider choosing a DaaS provider, here are five factors to consider.

5 Ways that DaaS Gives Law Firms a Competitive Advantage

Clients expect high-value service from their law firm. They want their attorney to be accessible, to understand their needs and to solve their problems, expertly and quickly. In today’s fast-paced world, law firms must be highly productive and efficient to meet these demands if they are to retain clients and gain word-of-mouth referrals.
