If you have a practice that requires client updates or have clients who use email for case communications, the Client Portal can dramatically reduce that in box volume as well as provide needed security.”
Amicus Cloud takes the security of your data extremely seriously
Ensuring world-class security for your data involves many aspects:
Amicus Cloud is hosted on Microsoft Azure. Which means your data is in data centers built and managed by Microsoft.
The cyber-protections (e.g. firewalls, encryption, filtering routers etc.) in Microsoft Azure data centers are state-of-the-art.
Every piece of information is stored immediately on three servers. Which means you not only have an instant back-up, but also you are protected in case of hardware failure.
To protect you against an unlikely and extreme catastrophe that disabled an entire data center, everything in the data center is replicated in another data center in a completely different geographical location.
Your data is stored in a separate SQL database, not mixed with those of other firms. No one at the data centers (or elsewhere within Microsoft) has access to your data. Period. They are not even capable of identifying which database is yours.
All transmissions of your data are done with 256-bit encryption – which is what banks use for your most sensitive financial data. All documents are encrypted as well.
No local “back-door”
Some cloud products install information on your local computer which is enough to allow anyone to log into your account. The result is that anyone who has even temporary access to your laptop – physically or by hacking in – could copy a file, and then get access to whatever that you have put in that cloud system. Amicus Cloud absolutely does not do this! You can rest easy knowing your case and client data is safe and secure, and the only ones who can access it are the members of your firm.
