Abacus Data Systems Pioneers the Legal Industry's First Turn Key Private Cloud Service Offering Bolstering Attorneys' Confidence in Adopting Virtual Technologies

Abacus Private Cloud Mitigates Liability for Legal Professionals, Safeguards Information Privacy and Assures Regulatory Compliance

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - September 09, 2014) - Abacus Data Systems, Inc. (Abacus), the Single Source Fully Managed Technology Solutions Provider (est. 1983), today unveiled Abacus Private Cloud™ (APC), the newest addition to their brand new, fully integrated legal technology solutions portfolio. Leveraging cutting-edge virtualization technologies, APC is built exclusively to run legal technology in a fully managed, secure and redundant private environment, mitigating liability and assuring regulatory and ethical compliance.  APC supports Abacus' continuing commitment to provide legal professionals with an overarching portfolio of services, deep expertise and robust security to help them innovate and realize the benefits of legal technology.

"The legal industry is currently navigating the most transformative shift ever," said Alessandra Lezama, Chief Executive Officer of Abacus Data Systems. "Driven by the American Bar Association's recent mandates and amplified by the information explosion we are currently experiencing, legal technology is no longer an option, but a matter of professional competency.  Not a single legal practitioner or organization is immune to this sweeping change and as such, legal entities of all sizes are faced with a similar array of challenges as it relates to implementing and managing legal technology."

The most pressing issues keeping legal professionals up at night are ethics and compliance, regulatory changes and information privacy. Legal entities create huge volumes of electronically stored information every day. While they struggle with how to preserve, manage, and use that information effectively, the pressure to reduce legal spend continues to increase.  APC is designed to help legal professionals accelerate their journey to the cloud and mitigate the risks posed by Public Cloud and SaaS applications. With APC, legal professionals can offload technology burdens, including migrating existing data and applications to the cloud, enabling them to focus on taking on new cases and delivering 'best possible outcomes' for their clients, instead of trying to solve frustrating IT issues.

Abacus Private Cloud addresses today's ever-changing threat landscape with robust security and compliance policies, including two-factor authentication, five tiers of physical, network and data security, information handling and data privacy protocols in accordance with NIST standards and geographically redundant, SSAE 16-compliant, SOC 1-, 2- data centers.

Lezama continued: "Piecemealed technology is no longer sufficient to remain competitive in today's legal landscape. APC can take any local IT infrastructure, desktop software application and data and weave it into a fully integrated, virtual workplace, which is accessible remotely from any device, anywhere, anytime. All this, in state-of-the-art data centers located exclusively in the United States, supported 24 by 7, for a predictable and affordable monthly service fee."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
