Legal firms require the highest level of security and accessibility for confidential client information. Our CloudLegal solutions provide the most advanced backup, failover, and recovery for your firm, and secure access to your applications from any device.
Enhancing the Legal Industry with Managed Cloud Solutions
Lawyers need to consider potential ethical issues when choosing how to manage and store their files. Protecting confidential client information is the most important concern for legal firms. Legal businesses need to maintain the highest level of security, while also ensuring employees have access to important information 24×7. In the case of a security breach or natural disaster, firms with on-premise data centers are in jeopardy of accruing huge financial and data losses.
The legal industry is experiencing increased regulatory pressure in order to uphold the integrity of the legal system. Complying with a growing number of complex new rules requires high financial and human commitment from firms. Compliance requirements have also put pressure on the industry to recognize infrastructure as an important part of a functional business model, increasing the need for sound IT functions.
Most legal cases require lawyers to be in constant communication with their clients. Lawyers need to be able to access important documents, calendars, applications, and more when they are away from the office. In addition, clients expect to be able to contact their lawyers and retrieve important information whenever they want.
Many law firms today are being held back by their outdated IT infrastructures. Traditional methods of storing and securing information are becoming obsolete. A large portion of a firm’s IT budget usually goes towards maintaining core infrastructure systems, and these costs continue to rise every year. As a result, firms have limited resources left over to innovate in areas like marketing or product development.
The cloud promotes easy information sharing between lawyers and clients by offering 24/7 access to documents and apps from any device, whether you are in the office, at home, or in court. With your critical data and applications hosted centrally in the cloud, your business’s work will remain synchronized. CloudLegal also allows you to quickly and easily add or remove users and applications from your network.
RapidScale’s cloud technology does not get viruses, slow down over time, or require IT upkeep maintenance. This reduces your company’s fixed costs and eliminates the need to constantly update your equipment with new technology. RapidScale’s pay-as-you-go model lets you scale your services up or down as needed. After migrating to the cloud, your costs will reflect only the services you need to keep your business up and running.
Many applications in the legal industry have been used for many years, and cannot support the growing need for additional capabilities. The cloud allows your firm to support newer, better apps that can accommodate the growing demands for mobility, security, business intelligence, and other new service capabilities. With the cloud, you will have endless possibilities for growth.
CloudApps simplifies application purchasing and license management for your business. RapidScale offers some of the most commonly used business apps, and also allows you to integrate your existing applications into the cloud. We can support 97% of business applications on the market, including:
Law Practice Management Software
Document Management and Collaboration Software
- Alfresco One

The legal industry relies heavily on the ability to store large quantities of files for long periods of time. This data needs to remain accessible and secure. It may seem like that’s asking a lot, but with the cloud, it’s really not. With advanced backup, failover, recovery and computing, the cloud is accessible for any legal firm.
Industry experts predict that cloud computing use by lawyers will increase significantly this year, now that the technology is becoming increasingly familiar. It may not cover all computing needs right away, but more lawyers will certainly use the cloud for some aspects of running their firms, whether it’s billing, time tracking, document storage, or a full-fledged law practice management software system.
See What our Customers are Saying
The amount of detail Gary provided me, as well as his responsiveness, was far beyond anything we had with our last vendor. The efficiency of your RFC process is a breath of fresh air! I’m also extremely satisfied with the RapidScale support team as a whole in regards to their proficiency, sense of urgency and etiquette.
I checked out some new partner resources – great stuff. We are already getting some good traction here. You guys really offer some great support!!
After being introduced to RapidScale at an event, I cannot help but be more impressed each time I hear more. I attended a webinar too, and once again, I’m really impressed with the opportunities. When I looked in your Partner Portal for the first time I thought, “Wow was I crazy for not looking sooner!” Great stuff in there.
Austin was amazing, professional, knowledgeable and personable – a true star!
I appreciate Steven’s quick response time and friendly demeanor when discussing problems. Great service and follow up!
RapidScale has been by far better than [our previous provider]. Our team is so much happier!
Our timing satisfaction rating reflects that these were carry-over issues from our prior vendor, but we’re pleased with RapidScale, and Steven’s thoroughness in reviewing and handling through to resolution.
I have been thrilled with RapidScale, I love the fact that when I call to initiate a ticket the technicians answer the phone. With [our last provider], we left a message then had to wait for a technician to call back. Sometimes this could take days! Thank you, I am really happy with your services.
Sent a ticket for a server being unresponsive and received a call within a few minutes. Great response and resolution.
I believe the technician’s name was David. He was very pro-active on a Saturday. Got the issue resolved quickly. High marks.
Thanks for the quick response and resolution! And I appreciate the fact that the tech gave information about what the problem was, how it was fixed, etc. That is always better than a simple “it’s now fixed”.
The level of service that we have received from RapidScale has been completely awesome. All of our IT team and the owner has commented on it. You guys are doing a fantastic job!
It’s been great so far having RapidScale host our email. We had it in-house before and that was just may more trouble than it was worth.
We’ve been extremely pleased with the service and customer support RapidScale has provided us. We don’t have a large IT staff and so the ability to lean on them has been perfect.
We’ve now transferred almost our entire company into RapidScale’s cloud. We started with just our email – we moved from in-house to hosted – then we moved the rest of our servers into the RapidScale cloud and now we’re in the final stages of implementing our virtual desktops! It’s really incredible to have everything running in the cloud and to have it all be so easy.
Working with RapidScale has been great so far. Our organization had a lot of our servers in-house and it was such a pain. It’s 1,000 times better now that we moved it all to the cloud.
RapidScale quite literally re-invented our IT situation. It was a complete mess before and we are absolutely THRILLED with everything that they’ve helped us to accomplish. Our network runs smoother and our virtual environments are the best addition we’ve made in a very long time.
The whole “cloud” thing was incredibly daunting when we first started exploring it for our business. We didn’t really understand the way everything worked and how it was going to help us get past some of the technology speed bumps we had. I worked with the RapidScale sales team and they were really very helpful and made me completely comfortable with the solution. We’ve been running on the CloudOffice interface for about 4 months now and are 100% satisfied and so happy we made the choice to move to RapidScale.
RapidScale helped to not only significantly lower our costs, but to help make our work environment more productive as well as more reliable and stable.
I LOVE THIS TECHNOLOGY. I am so excited to be in this new phase within our organization. As a proud partner of RapidScale, this week alone I’ve dealt with 3 major consultations in Colorado with hundreds of employees each! This technology is truly exciting stuff. They make the process so easy, from training, to quoting, to installation! I LOVE HOW EASY THAT WAS. Amazing. You all ROCK!
