A Case Study in Security

A West Hartford and Middletown Law Firm – Security Upgrade

Background

A law firm, with offices in both West Hartford and Middletown, focuses primarily on personal injury cases, emphasizing individual client service. This firm’s work depends on an efficient IT infrastructure in order to maintain the utmost security of client information, as well as to allow lawyers from both locations to securely access any legal record.

Challenge

This law firm had a basic computer system. The firm specialized in providing personal attention to clients and, therefore, did not feel the need to invest in network technology. It contacted VISTECH, an IT consulting firm and system integrator, after recognizing that its basic computer system failed to optimize both the security of information and the performance of its operating system.

Solution

After evaluating the firm’s technology, VISTECH developed a plan for improving the stability, security, and lifespan of the computers and network infrastructure. Technicians collaborated with the lawyers to prioritize a list of tasks tailored for the firm’s needs. First, VISTECH increased the operational reliability of the firm’s desktops and laptops by upgrading operating systems and productivity software. Internet access was improved by replacing an outdate connection with a modern, more cost-effective option.  To further protect and secure the firm’s records, VISTECH installed and enterprise antivirus solutions and added a network attached storage device that can be shared and easily backed up. Because the firm operates from multiple offices, VISTECH installed a VPN connection between locations to facilitate secure file sharing. The gradual implementation of these upgrades was not only able to produce an immediate improvement in the quality of the system but was also able to prevent an intrusive interruption to the firm’s workflow.

Result

VISTECH completed a substantial number of upgrades to the firm’s hardware and operating system without interrupting the firm’s daily operations. The firm has enhanced its ability to work between offices without fear of security issues or hardware reliability. The technicians continue to provide proactive Total Network Support (TNS) for daily monitoring of the firm’s operating system. “The network technician caters his service to our needs,” said Susan, Partner of the firm. The ongoing maintenance and gradual infrastructure improvements continue to increase the performance and lifespan of the computer system at the most cost-effective rate.
