Like going from a thirty-year-old beaten-up Toyota to driving the latest Tesla, there are some eye-popping benefits to upgrading your network.
But the question is – how do you know whether it's time to update your law firm's network?
Fortunately, there are some stand-out signs you can watch out for. These are the flashing warning lights on the dashboard that signal it's time to take your network to the dealer and upgrade it for something better.
Let’s take a closer look.
1. Difficulty with remote working
The COVID-19 pandemic forced the world online and became the 'tipping point’ for remote work adoption in the legal sector. Interestingly, two thirds of lawyers say remote working has had a positive impact on their well-being.
However, remote working adoption success varies between companies. Indeed, 74 percent of lawyers think their firm should invest more in technology to support the shift.
The good news is, solutions like SD-WAN can help. As an example, here’s how we helped a law firm get reliable connectivity across disparate offices and reduce operating costs by 33 percent thanks to SD-WAN.
2. Network security challenges
A network security issue is a clear sign that you need to update your network. And, with so much sensitive client data, it's foolhardy for law firms to take risks in this area.
To remedy vulnerabilities, you’ll want to upgrade your internet security and private access services with platforms such as Zscaler.
Then, you’ll enjoy features that include:
- Fast deployment. Deploy secure web gateways and get started in just minutes.
- 360-degree protection. You’ll get firewalls, content filtering and other tools included.
- Real flexibility. Zscaler solutions can adapt as your business needs change over time.
3. Inability to support disparate or global offices
Why get stuck in one location when there’s a big world for your firm to expand into?
Perhaps it currently takes too long or requires too much of your IT resources to currently justify deploying a new office. If this is the case, you’ll want to modernise your network so your business can spread its wings.
Is it time to update your law firm's network?
Don’t be the person with the outdated, rusty car.
From network security issues to an inability to support remote working, there are clear signs that you need to update your law firms' network. If you do, you’ll enjoy the modern technology you need to secure your business and build toward a brighter future.
