Decho More than Doubles Number of Mozy Legal Customers
Cost Savings, Security Benefits and Growth in Electronically-Stored Information Drives Law Firms to Adopt Mozy
SEATTLE, Wash. – Thursday May 28, 2009 - Decho Corporation, an EMC Company (NYSE: EMC), today announced the number of legal organizations backing up client and business data with MozyPro® has more than doubled from the previous year. As the most trusted online backup solution for consumers, legal professionals and businesses, MozyPro is secure, budget-friendly and requires minimal resources to manage. The addition of Mozy™ to the American Bar Association’s (ABA) Member Advantage program in August 2008 has also been instrumental in driving this growth and creating awareness among law firms around the need to conduct a regular legal backup.
In a time of tight IT budgets, law firms are looking for solutions that help lower costs and improve operating efficiencies. At the same time, these firms are perpetually working to preserve and protect electronically-stored information – like case files and client information – a consideration that has become all the more important due to legal retention requirements included the 2006 amendment to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
Joseph Booth, a long-time member and contributor to the American Bar Association, was able to meet these challenges by using MozyPro. Booth realized a 92 percent savings in backup costs by choosing MozyPro over an on-premise backup solution when he founded his own law firm, The Law Offices of Joseph W. Booth, in January 2009.
“When I opened my business earlier this year in the middle of the global economic storm, I had to be smart about my investments,” he said. “Mozy is easy to use, affordable, and provides me peace of mind in knowing that the information critical to my business is safe, secure and accessible—no matter what.”
Online backup stands out as a secure, cost-effective way to back up digital information off-site, which keeps records intact in the event of a theft, loss, virus or hardware malfunction. MozyPro not only protects files from disasters and hardware failures but also incorporates the most advanced encryption methods to secure files from corruption or unauthorized access. Military-grade AES encryption protects data during storage while 128-bit SSL encryption protects files during transport.
“Legal firms depend heavily on an ever-growing body of digital information in the form of email, case files and client information,” said Dave Robinson, vice president of Mozy marketing at Decho Corp. “Our growth in the legal industry is evidence of the need to protect this critical information from disaster as well as demand for backup solutions that are secure, reliable, budget-friendly and easy-to-use.”
MozyPro also provides peace of mind to IT directors who struggle with the challenge of backup for traveling attorneys. In 2008, David Roden, the director of technology for Goodell, DeVries, Leech & Dann, was forced to catch a red-eye flight to assist a senior partner who could not get his computer to start two days before the trial date. Although the files were recovered, Roden found MozyPro and started using it to back up the company’s traveling attorneys.
“MozyPro’s low cost and ease of use allow our attorneys to provide great service to our clients in an extremely efficient and cost-effective manner,” Roden said. “With MozyPro, we know that our attorneys are protected no matter what time zone they happen to be in today.”
