Cloud Computing New Orleans Law Firms

Preparing for litigation on a remote beach may not be as ideal as it sounds. However, cloud services do offer secure, reliable access to case files and scheduling systems for remote workers. Take your office with you everywhere without giving up security that protects your clients’ personal legal data.

BIOS Technologies can help your New Orleans law firm make the move from a physical office to freedom. Learn more about the advantages of going to the cloud.

What Are the Biggest Advantages of Going to the Cloud?

When you’re in the middle of a complex legal procedure, you need access to your legal software from home and elsewhere. However, security is a primary concern. We provide ample security layers as well as monitoring of all devices that connect to your network. This solid cybersecurity strategy helps us keep your network safe whether you access the system in the office or elsewhere.

Here are the major benefits of moving to the cloud:

  • No more single points of failure. When you implement a private cloud, you create more than just backup copies of your files. Storing systems, programs and data in the cloud reduces your vulnerability to a data breach. Further, by virtualizing your firm’s IT structure, you make it easier to reset to a last known good state if a data loss incident occurs.
  • Eliminating server headaches. Even if you have a small firm, you need a server to host your on-premise software. Having a physical server requires maintenance and upgrades, which means you need to hire an IT resource to take care of it. With a private cloud, you get a virtual server that includes maintenance and updates as part of the service contract.
  • Managing cases anywhere, at any time. On-premise servers typically interact with individual computers which limits your staff members to a single device. Modern law firms demand more flexibility to stay competitive and productive. There are many times when legal staff members must handle offsite meetings, in-transit communication, and courthouse appearances. When you’re working from a private cloud, everything on the virtual server is available to you wherever you are and from any device.
  • More secure data. Law firms and other companies have been in the headlines related to cybersecurity breaches. This deeply impacts client trust and may have other legal and financial ramifications. However, moving to a private cloud environment makes your data more secure — not less so. An on-premise IT team can configure a basic firewall that runs spot checks and unusual activity. However, this is often too little to keep hackers out of your network. Any Wi-Fi connection can leave your data exposed, whether it’s in the office or from a remote location. Fortunately, a private cloud system built by BIOS Technologies has a secure environment that separates sensitive data from prying eyes. We are in the business of keeping your data available to you and safe from everyone else.
  • Creating a centralized system. Many law firms have multiple offices in New Orleans and other communities. Employees may need remote access or access from more than one location. VPN’s can be slow and awkward, making it difficult for employees working from home, the courthouse or anywhere else. it can also be difficult to merge duplicate data created by multiple touches from different offices. A private cloud stores all systems and data in a centralized system. This guarantees a seamless experience that reduces confusion and increases efficiency.
