LawSecure.net - secure online storage for lawyers
LawSecure is our secure UK based online storage facility that is certified and managed by LawCloud and that can be purchased as a separate facility to our full Practice Management application.
“It is a compliant online storage facility for lawyers in the UK, which works in a similar way to other online storage vehicles such as Dropbox.” It is designed for lawyers who need to comply with the Data Protection Act 1998 for storing data and is a fast, secure and reliable way of storing key data off-site. It enables lawyers to store and access their confidential documents and data with total peace of mind.
Hosted within the robust LawCloud state-of-the-art, UK based data centre, you can be assured that your data is safe. You can use different methods of uploading and downloading your data, and access it from any internet-enabled PC.
It’s easy to setup, simply email your disk volume details along with the amount of storage space you require and we’ll provision the space and send you a unique secure link to your LawSecure repository.
Please note, this is not a managed backup service. It is a storage space facility.
Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity
– Are you protected?
How many of us know for sure that our backup is really working and that we can recover from a disk or server failure in the event of an unforeseen disaster?
We are all guilty of too commonly assuming that our backups are good and that if our server disk was to fail or the server to break down, that our backup is in a recoverable state to recover from.
Imagine coming into the office on a busy Friday with settlements to deal with or having a critical court schedule and you can't get to your documents... as the server died the night before! This has been the experience of many unfortunates and I can assure you, it will only ever happen once!
We assume that our IT support (if we have any) are looking after these things and that they will sort us out in the worst case scenario. Whilst this may be true, they can only do this if you have reliable, fully restorable backups and even then, can't guarantee that there won't be data loss.
You need to be sure that your backups are regularly checked (1) to ensure that they are running successfully and (2) that in the event of a failure, information can be successfully recovered from the tapes / disk.
In any event, it can take days to rebuild a server or recover from a failure and this downtime can be enormously frustrating and in some cases, where recovery isn't possible, absolutely fatal for the business.
It is best practise to perform a recovery test every quarter to "simulate" a failure and even restore your information to a "recovery server" to demonstrate that your restore procedure works, is valid and tested.
For those who don't have this facility available then there is an element of risk that will only become apparent probably when it is too late.
LawWare has introduced a new service that can help ensure that the worst never happens. Through a new service that we have introduce called LawSecure for Enterprise we have designed a robust plan to help protect your server data and give you Zero downtime in the event of a major disaster, something which very few providers can offer.
If you are already a LawCloud user then you are automatically protected by this cover.
This service is aimed at LawWare Enterprise users who would benefit from peace of mind that their backups are taken care of and that there is a tested recovery process daily, also for those who would benefit from remote access to a snapshot of this data for mobility.
If you are not currently a LawWare or LawCloud user, and do not currently enjoy this level of cover, then please contact us to find out more about our low cost competitor upgrade options.
