All Mountain Technologies Set This Law Firm Free With The Cloud

This client was stuck with on-premise systems, which kept their staff at their desks and unable to work from home or on the go. That’s why they called All Mountain Technologies.

The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted how important it is for organizations and companies to pivot quickly and take advantage of opportunities during challenging times. Working remotely was proven to be such an opportunity and allowed organizations to be flexible and responsive.

That’s why clients like this law firm have turned to All Mountain Technologies to have us establish a high-performance and secure remote platform in Microsoft 365.

Remote Work Capabilities Are A Must

Suppose your organization plans to continue with remote work into the future. In that case, you’re not alone in that decision—according to 317 CFOs recently surveyed by Gartner, 74% say they expect to move previously on-site employees remote post-COVID-19.

The question is: are you remote ready? This is a common concern we’ve heard from clients…

This Client Needed Reliable Remote Capabilities

IT resources have never been as important as now, as most professionals work from home.

Organizations like this need the right technologies and processes to stay connected and productive while working remotely. This client had only an on-premise IT environment, which lacked the flexibility and remote access they wanted.

They knew they needed to have an affordable, scalable, and secure solution that enabled an efficient remote workforce and could trust us to deliver.

How All Mountain Technologies Solved This Client’s Problem

Our team knew the perfect solution for this client’s needs was a robust cloud solution like Microsoft 365.

We migrated this business to Microsoft 365 for email, security, and cloud-stored data, all of which complimented their current cloud-hosted line of business software-as-a-service well. We showed their staff members how to store and access their files in SharePoint, communicate through Teams, and more.

Benefits include:

Access Apps From Anywhere

The staff members need to be able to use their tools from anywhere, and Microsoft 365 gives them that flexibility. They can access their email, meetings, and other services online.

Use Any Device: Whether their staff members prefer a laptop, a tablet, or even their smartphone, Microsoft 365 is accessible on any type of device and backed up by a robust set of security features.

Robust Security Features

Microsoft 365 uses a defense-in-depth approach to provide physical, logical, and data layers of security features and operational best practices:

The Microsoft 365 Cloud App Security provides insight into any suspicious activity in the program. We can investigate situations that could pose a risk and if needed, take action to address them. We receive notifications of triggered alerts for any unusual activities. Then we can view what data is being accessed and used and suspend any user accounts that exhibit suspicious activity.

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is another way that Microsoft 365 keeps this law firm’s data more secure. MFA requires the consumer to utilize two methods to confirm that they are the rightful account owner. By setting up these types of verification, we add an extra layer of security to their Microsoft 365 accounts.

Microsoft 365 uses several strong encryption protocols and technologies, including Transport Layer Security/Secure Sockets Layer (TLS/SSL), Internet Protocol Security (IPSec), and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES).

Built-in Mobile Device Management in Microsoft 365 Business allows this law firm to manage access to their data securely. This lets them secure and manage their users’ mobile devices.

Automatic Updates

This law firm enjoys the latest versions of their preferred apps like Microsoft Word and Excel, thanks to automatic patches and updates. No need to pay for version upgrades — updates are included in their subscription. New features are rolled out to Microsoft 365 customers regularly.

Once we had transitioned their current team to this new platform, we also implemented processes to ensure these standards would continue to be met. As this law firm’s team grows, staff members will follow a standardized onboarding process and security posture.

This Law Firm Has The Remote IT Environment They Need

This law firm now enjoys an ongoing solution that is affordable, scalable and secure and that enables an efficient remote workforce. Their team can stay active while working at home and on the go without putting business data at risk.

Why Is The Remote Work Model Beneficial?

Like all remote models supported by the cloud, hosting your data remotely and having your staff access it delivers several key advantages compared to the conventional in-office working model.

Minimal Maintenance

Hosting a user’s software, applications, and data externally in another organization’s server room or data center, the onus of maintenance is shifted to that organization.

Instead of having to maintain server space, execute updates and patches, address and eliminate issues, replace failed hardware, and other tasks associated with maintenance, someone else takes care of it all.

Convenient Access

A hallmark of cloud solutions, one of the key advantages of utilizing remotely hosted solutions is that it allows for easy, anywhere access to software, applications, and data.

Cost Effect

Accessing software via a remote hosting service is undeniably more affordable because it allows the user to avoid costly software licenses based on a concurrent user model.
