The Software Features
One of the challenges faced by the platform is the risk of hackers and government intrusion. The platform provides a solution for sensitive communication and documents. Losing these documents and communication to clients to hackers will reduce the company’s reputation, whose primary business is offering technological solutions. Other challenges include low customer experience and increased downtime that affect service delivery. All these challenges can affect the reputation of the business. Another risk stems from third party users such as the customers to these law firms. However, in as much as these risks face the company, it has maintained a good record with minimum interruptions
The company relies on Amazon cloud computing service that offers faster processing of information. The platform also gives an intuitive interface, that ensures implementing resources and importing data as well as bringing the entire firm on board is fast and easy. The company is committed to ensuring that clients’ data is safe. Mycase uses 128-bit SSL encryption that is at the same level as the encryption used by banks for online transactions. The encryption establishes a secure connection when sending and receiving information. The data stored in the cloud is encrypted using 256-bit AES encryption. In addition, the users decide the type of information and document he or she wants to share with their customers, this is a way of improving security of the business.
The firm ensures back-ups are done regularly, and no data is lost in case of an event of failure by the hardware. Data is backed up every night to redundant Amazon S3 servers. After every update, the information is validated to ensure data integrity.
Physical security is also offered to the data from clients. Amazon EC2 cloud servers are located in the Amazon facilities protected by perimeters that match military-grade in nondescript locations. Access to these locations is controlled strictly by two-factor authentication accompanied by a constant security escort.
