Many law firms are transitioning from the traditional on-site IT infrastructure to a cloud-based or managed hosting solution. Attorneys are beginning to understand the benefits of cloud-based computing services and its positive impact on productivity. Deciding if hosted managed services is right for your firm is a challenging choice. Below are three reasons that may help you make the best decision.
Law firms handle massive amounts of highly sensitive information. Security is priority number one when it comes to protecting your data. The security provided by a managed hosting provider is often far superior to the traditional in-house data center. A managed hosting provider monitors their data centers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week enforcing strict access policies at all times. Managed hosting is not only more cost-effective for your law firm, it is more secure as well.
Having servers in-house may work for one office. However, what if your office has multiple locations? If your other offices need access to the same resources, it is a huge undertaking for IT staff to create a secure solution that is accessible for all users. Cloud-based computing can accommodate multiple office locations. All office locations can access one central data center with access to all of the same resources.
Chances are your associates, partners, and staff all work from any given location at any time. Whether users are working from home or traveling on business, they can continue to have access to important resources using any internet connected device. Users can login from a laptop, tablet, or smart phone. Cloud-based computing is a perfect solution for your mobile needs.
As you can see, hosted managed services can provide many benefits for law firms of all sizes. It is a cost-effective solution that is easy to use, secure, and convenient.
