Law firms that handle their own IT infrastructure usually find IT management and maintenance to be time-consuming, distracting, and costly. It forces legal professionals to spend time troubleshooting software and repairing hardware (or, if they can’t do it themselves, to spend money researching and hiring freelance IT technicians to perform these tasks) when they should be focused on arguing cases and assisting clients. Though law firms can outsource the management of their IT infrastructure to an Application Hosting Services Provider, there are some that find it difficult to trust a third-party organization with their business-critical applications and data. What these firms don’t realize is that the security and reliability of high-end Application Hosting Providers like IronOrbit are as good as, or better than, that of even the most well-protected on-site IT infrastructure.
Among Application Hosting Companies, only IronOrbit classifies comprehensive, enterprise-level IT security as a standard feature of its Hosted Applications. The custom-designed Orbital Security System that comes with our Application Hosting includes firewalls, 24x7x365 network monitoring, antivirus, spam blocker, antispyware, patch management, and content filtering. IronOrbit Application Hosting Services not only protect law firms from cyber-attacks but also guarantee their compliance with data security regulations such as PCI DSS, SOX, and the GLBA. At IronOrbit we also do our best to prevent outages of our Hosted Applications with around-the-clock performance monitoring, automation, and proactive hardware and software repairs. We actually guarantee 100% uptime since we’re so confident in our ability to prevent downtime and to ensure that our clients have continual access to their files and applications.
The benefits of a law firm selecting IronOrbit as its Application Hosting Provider also include:
-Access Hosted Legal Applications from anywhere. A user only needs an Internet-connected computing device to be able to access IronOrbit’s web-based Hosted Applications. Lawyers can access their files and applications from anywhere, including at the office, at home, or at a courthouse, coffee shop, or airport with available Wi-Fi.
-Deploy multiple Hosted Applications at once. IronOrbit can host not only a law firm’s Legal Applications such as Abacus or Amicus but also its more generic business software such as Microsoft Office, Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, and QuickBooks. Multiple Hosted Applications can be deployed either singularly or, in combination with a Hosted Desktop Infrastructure, as a group.
-Doesn’t require any on-site IT hardware or personnel. With IronOrbit Applications Hosting, a law firm doesn’t have to worry about IT management or maintenance. We will build, maintain, and update the IT infrastructure. We also perform regular data backups and provide 24x7x365 online and phone-based technical support. These Managed Services aren’t add-ons, either—they’re included for free with each Hosted Application’s fixed, low monthly subscription fee.
