OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – CoreVault™, an industry leader in providing data protection services for law firms, today announced that the law offices of Hemry, Hemry & McDoniel (HH&M) has implemented CoreVault’s Online Data Backup solution to protect its business data. After struggling to recover critical data backed up by HH&M’s previous international data backup provider, HH&M turned to CoreVault to save the day.
Hemry, Hemry and McDoniel (HH&M) is a law firm in Oklahoma City that specializes in various areas of law including estate planning, probate and real estate law. As a busy local firm, HH&M considers its data core to its business. As such, backup and restore processes for HH&M are a serious matter. Understanding that it couldn’t risk data loss in the event of any disaster – including system outages, flood, fire or tornadoes – the firm took pro-active steps to protect its valuable information.
HH&M initially elected to backup their data online with an international company that offered a cheap price. Yet, this turned out to quickly be an unacceptable experience. When an event that required data recovery occurred, the international organization was unable to recover just 1.12GB in an adequate timeframe.
“After one day, eight hours and fifty-two minutes, the ‘backup’ provided by the international company was still not restored,” said Leslee Jaramillo, legal administrator for HH&M. “I immediately decided that this just wasn't going to work. I don't have three days to waste...this office is just too busy."
By coincidence, CoreVault happened to call Jaramillo right during her frustrating experience. CoreVault, who was initially being considered by HH&M when they selected the alternate solution, was checking back to see if the company was satisfied with their selection. While the original decision made by HH&M made sense at the time, Jaramillo was quick to recognize that CoreVault – a local SAS 70 Type II certified company – had the best solution and services HH&M needed to support its business.
HH&M deployed CoreVault’s Online Data Backup solution designed for dynamic data protection. It allows 24x7 access for data recovery to a single file or email. For assured security, files are encrypted and backed up in compressed formats to their two private and geographically separated data centers. The data deduplication technology built into the software also reduces the cost for off-site storage of their data and assures rapid backup speeds.
"Since moving to CoreVault, I've had zero problems," Jaramillo said. "The product is easy to use, the price is exceptional and the people are great to work with. I can leave at night and it just 'does its thing'... I never have to worry. CoreVault's product is better than any system I've ever used, and I've used a lot. They are great."
In the future, HH&M will be able to expand the use of CoreVault’s services as their needs grow. Additional solutions CoreVault offers include Nearline and Offline Data Storage. A mid-tier option, Nearline Data Storage, provides an outstanding storage solution for static/older data. Offline Data Storage, CoreVault’s most cost-effective product, is ideal for old case files that do not need modification, but require permanent archiving. CoreVault’s backup and recovery services are powered by Asigra Hybrid Cloud Backup and Recovery software, which is proven in over 100,000 installations over the past two decades. Asigra software eliminates the performance, security and cost of traditional backup and alternative onsite and off-site backup solutions to meet business continuity and compliance requirements while helping the legal community reduce costs associated with backup and recovery.
“As a leader in providing data protection services to law firms across the country, CoreVault understands the vital nature of the data today’s lawyers need to protect,” said Jeff Cato, vice president of marketing, CoreVault. “While we protect law firms nationwide with our services, it is especially gratifying to serve one of the leading law firms right here in Oklahoma City. HH&M was facing significant reliability and service issues with their prior data protection provider and we were happy to seamlessly help them eliminate those challenges so they could get back to servicing their customers without worrying about the vulnerability of their data.”
