With new IT projects coming from so many areas, it’s common to see legal IT teams struggle to implement and test an effective disaster recovery solution. To meet critical recovery requirements without having to take on addtional workload, more and more firms are turning to Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS).

ILTA Peer to Peer Magazine recently featured Bluelock Solutions in the case study article, “Selecting DRaaS: Taylor Porter’s Journey to a Stronger IT Stance,” that highlights how we’ve solved some of our client’s most critical IT challenges with our fully-managed DRaaS solution.

Not only could DRaaS offload cumbersome testing and daily maintenance tasks for IT-DR, it could also ensure a smooth recovery to an offsite location during both likely and unlikely events, such as weather disasters or cyber-attacks. The robust managed service methodology from Bluelock Solutions aims to assist overburdened legal IT teams protect sensitive data and meet the availability demands of their firm.

“DRaaS would not require us to refresh our infrastructure, buy lots of licensing or have to find a new facility to house the solution…most of all, it was not going to add to our IT team’s current workload or cause the firm to hire more resources to manage the additional workload of rebuilding and managing the solution. In my mind, DRaaS was a win.”

– Damian Burdette,  Director of Information Technology at Taylor Porter

In the article, Burdette also provides a clear example of how to get buy-in from leadership, saying what steps he took to help his partners understand why DRaaS was the right fit. Beyond the purchasing process, he also notes the importance of expertise during the onboarding stage, “Our provider’s expertise in DRaaS and knowledge of the products in use have been critical in helping us execute the plan.”

As the catalyst that led him to explore DRaaS, Burdette references an ILTA webinar by Bluelock Solutions on building a robust data protection strategy. Below is that webinar:
