Law Firms Weighed Down by Exponential Data Growth

IDC estimates that there will be 40 Zettabytes of data on the planet by 2020. That translates to approximately 5,247 GB of data for every person on earth, including you. Therefore, it probably comes as no surprise that the analyst firm in turn predicts that enterprise data stores will grow an average of 60 percent annually. How can IT keep up, to ensure all data is shared and stored securely?

Because of this growth, many organizations are essentially drowning in information – with more data to manage than they are capable of handling. Law firms in particular are notorious for having large amounts of information that they need to share, edit and collaborate on with both internal and external parties.

Husch Blackwell LLP, a full-service litigation and business law firm, had this exact problem, and was struggling to manage the sharing of large volumes of documentation for current client cases, which was putting significant stress on the firm’s email system. This was hindering communications and driving employees to offload file sharing to archaic methods, such as thumb drives and CDs. While these methods got the job done, they created additional costs, were inefficient, and created serious security concerns.

Learn how Husch Blackwell freed employees from the burden of sharing large amounts of data, by implementing a private cloud file sharing solution, enabling users to securely access and share client casework.
