What Kind of Cloud Technologies Does Our Law Firm Need?

More than 90% of law firms across the United States have migrated to cloud-based computing, according to a study by 451 research. But which type of cloud is right for your needs? Public or private? A private cloud platform is the best of all the public cloud platforms mentioned. Moreover, the right private cloud platform not only secures your data but backs it up in redundant locations just like public clouds. Private cloud platforms offer massive benefits over public cloud providers.

What does a Private Cloud Offer Law Firms Across The US?

Reliability

Private cloud providers that cater to Law Firms have proven to be extremely reliable. They offer person-to-person support, unlike public cloud platforms. When was the last time you called Microsoft for support?

Security

Private cloud platforms are secure. As small targets, they are virtually invisible to cybercriminals but offer security and safety similar to that of a public cloud provider. Public cloud providers, on the other hand, are huge targets for hackers. While public cloud providers often tout their ability to secure your data, security on the public cloud is only as good as the IT company that implements it. Therefore, the idea of the public cloud being more secure is a misconception. 70% of law firms across the United States that host data or workloads in the cloud experienced a breach of their public cloud environment in the past year.

Flexibility

A private cloud platform is flexible. If your business utilizes a public cloud your business has to deal with two vendors, the cloud and the IT provider. Private cloud providers often bundle services thus creating fewer points of contact. This reduces frustration on the part of the customer. Additionally, private cloud providers can also customize a business’ experience beyond the standard cookie-cutter offerings of public cloud providers. These large entities can’t scale their product for an individual client experience based on need outside a set of parameters.

Support

Finally, private cloud providers, like Rekall Cloud, are supportive. We offer services that promote cooperation among all your business technologies, including unlimited support, local IT security, purchasing, management, and strategic planning. At similar costs to a public cloud, the right private cloud provider will give your business more in the short and support you for the long haul.
