Your Favorite Law Apps in the Cloud

By Ron Weber

Abacus Cloud-Hosting Favorite Law Apps in the CloudCybercrime is quickly chipping away at our clients’ trust in how law firms manage and secure sensitive financial data. Some have even launched class action lawsuits in protest. As state bar associations are beginning to clamp down on technology incompetency, you cannot afford to cut corners with safeguarding your clients’ personal data. In fact — as the ABA has indicated — you have an ethical obligation to take reasonable steps to protect that data.

That is where Abacus Private Cloud enters the picture. Our cloud-hosting platform acts as an encrypted virtual computer that not only stores your favorite files, but also runs your favorite legal practice management software. This takes any computer software vulnerability issues out of the equation, since hackers will need to break through 256-bit AES encrypted, SSL-A certified international data centers to access your account instead of basic anti-virus and firewall programs. This allows you to manage your law firm billing and sensitive client financial data in an extremely protected environment. You can even install other software to boost how your law software handles and organizes your firm’s financials and other data.

Addressing Your Security Vulnerabilities

Using Abacus Private Cloud can help resolve your security vulnerabilities. Our virtual cloud-hosting platform operates as an encrypted, cloud-based computer to not only install and run law practice management software but to securely store your data — all of which you can access anywhere and anytime across all devices.

In addition to our built-in safeguards, all cloud hosting accounts can be customized to meet your specific data security compliance needs. PIPEDA & GDPR? Check and check. PCI DSS? That’s covered, too.

Our accounts can even be configured to comply with HITRUST, a comprehensive data security standard designed to comply with industry standards such as ISO, HIPAA, COBIT, PCI, and NIST, along with state laws.

In addition, if you have any questions or need updates made to your account and software, our legal software-hosting experts are available to help both during and after normal business hours.
