Abacus Data Systems Pioneers the Legal Industry’s First Turn Key Private Cloud Service Offering Bolstering Attorneys’ Confidence in Adopting Virtual Technologies
Abacus Private Cloud Mitigates Liability for Legal Professionals, Safeguards Information Privacy and Assures Regulatory Compliance
San Diego, CA, September 09, 2014 – Abacus Data Systems, Inc. (Abacus), the Single Source Fully Managed Technology Solutions Provider (est. 1983), today unveiled Abacus Private Cloud™ (APC), the newest addition to their brand new, fully integrated legal technology solutions portfolio. Leveraging cutting-edge virtualization technologies, APC is built exclusively to run legal technology in a fully managed, secure and redundant private environment, mitigating liability and assuring regulatory and ethical compliance. APC supports Abacus’ continuing commitment to provide legal professionals with an overarching portfolio of services, deep expertise and robust security to help them innovate and realize the benefits of legal technology.
“The legal industry is currently navigating the most transformative shift ever,” said Alessandra Lezama, Chief Executive Officer of Abacus Data Systems. “Driven by the American Bar Association’s recent mandates and amplified by the information explosion we are currently experiencing, legal technology is no longer an option, but a matter of professional competency. Not a single legal practitioner or organization is immune to this sweeping change and as such, legal entities of all sizes are faced with a similar array of challenges as it relates to implementing and managing legal technology.”
The most pressing issues keeping legal professionals up at night are ethics and compliance, regulatory changes and information privacy. Legal entities create huge volumes of electronically stored information every day. While they struggle with how to preserve, manage, and use that information effectively, the pressure to reduce legal spend continues to increase. APC is designed to help legal professionals accelerate their journey to the cloud and mitigate the risks posed by Public Cloud and SaaS applications. With APC, legal professionals can offload technology burdens, including migrating existing data and applications to the cloud, enabling them to focus on taking on new cases and delivering ‘best possible outcomes’ for their clients, instead of trying to solve frustrating IT issues.
Abacus Private Cloud addresses today’s ever-changing threat landscape with robust security and compliance policies, including two-factor authentication, five tiers of physical, network and data security, information handling and data privacy protocols in accordance with NIST standards and geographically redundant, SSAE 16-compliant, SOC 1-, 2- data centers.
Lezama continued: “Piecemealed technology is no longer sufficient to remain competitive in today’s legal landscape. APC can take any local IT infrastructure, desktop software application and data and weave it into a fully integrated, virtual workplace, which is accessible remotely from any device, anywhere, anytime. All this, in state-of-the-art data centers located exclusively in the United States, supported 24 by 7, for a predictable and affordable monthly service fee.”
