A lot of lawyers today know that legal management without a cloud software package will take you to nowhere. You just cannot compete in the market, and that is absolutely true. Figures show that more lawyers than ever use cloud software for their daily management needs. According to ABA’s 2017 legal Technology Survey report, the number of lawyers using cloud computing in 2017 jumped to 52% as compared to 38% in 2016.
In this article, I am going to talk about MyCase as one of the leading cloud-based legal management solutions but before that let me explain the difference between cloud and premise-based software.
Cloud-Based vs. Premise-Based Software
When you use the term “cloud-based,” it’s just another way of saying that the software is not installed on your actual computer. Unlike cloud-based software, premise-based software runs on a local computer or server with a database. What does this mean in real life? It means that you can access your data only from computers located in your office in case of premise-based software whereas cloud-based software allows you access to data from anywhere where there is internet.
There is a debate about the security side of cloud-based vs. premise-based software. It is traditionally believed that premise-based software is more secure. Other experts think that cloud is more secure especially when it comes to information resiliency and privacy. Resiliency is the idea of not losing data or letting it be susceptible to corruption. CTO of cloud archive provider Greg Arnette says, for example, “The cloud reduces the surface area of penetration attacks because the entry points into the cloud are very well defined and can be locked down with multi-factor authentication, web-based tokens, limited-time restricted access, and other very mature tools.”
Having said that, let us come back to MyCase as a workable cloud-based solution.
