Arkansas’s largest law firm, Friday, Eldredge & Clark LLP, embraces Bluelock Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service as a differentiator for its client-first firm
Friday, Eldredge and Clark, LLP, chose Bluelock as its trusted partner in strengthening IT resiliency with multi-tiered Managed DRaaS for on-premises servers
INDIANAPOLIS – May 24, 2018 – Bluelock, provider of Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) for complex environments and sensitive data, today announced that Friday, Eldredge and Clark, LLP (FEC) has joined a growing list of law firms adopting its managed DRaaS solutions to modernize and improve IT resiliency. Realizing the increasing pressure on law firms to protect client data, FEC reinforces its “Client Focused Every Day” principle with this investment in protecting its IT systems.
Law firms like FEC are recognizing the agility, security and cost benefits of cloud services such as DRaaS. Bluelock has doubled the number of law firms it serves over the past year, indicative of the increased focus by IT leaders to protect their firms against cyber threats, human error, natural disasters and other business threats.
“The firm has aggressively invested in best practice security and protection solutions,” said Greg McKee, CIO, Friday, Eldredge & Clark, LLP. “Recent global cyber-attacks and the debilitating impact of such attacks, especially those on law firms, have sharpened awareness that such attacks represent the most common modern “disaster” and the need to be prepared. Although we found numerous DRaaS vendors with similar solutions, we ultimately chose Bluelock given their proven success at other law firms, their team of experts and their white glove approach. We believe these attributes will lead us to this next level of IT resiliency.”
Bluelock’s Managed DRaaS will provide FEC with tangible benefits including:
- Multi-tiered solution, matching application priority to SLA-backed recovery times, with orchestrated failover and failback
- Decommissioning a second site for DR, avoiding the traditional capital expenditures while retaining use of existing on-premises servers
- Increased confidence with Bluelock Recovery Assurance through ongoing environment management, testing, and documentation–enabling FEC to continually validate its investment and virtually extend its IT team
Jeff Ton, EVP of Product & Service Development at Bluelock, explains; “We continue to see law firms seek out modern ways to secure one of their most valuable assets—client data. Clients are asking tough questions and frequently auditing their firms regarding IT security. Many firms are looking towards DRaaS partners like Bluelock to help them achieve their IT-DR outcomes and continuously support them.”
