T TWM SOLICITORS , its IT

A department needs to ensure applications are up and running 24 / 7 . Lawyers are working around the clock and need to access case-related documents to meet the needs and deadlines of their clients . If they aren ’ t able to access their data , the results would be catastrophic for their clients . Additionally , in today ’ s world , they need a solution that allows them to safely work remotely .

Using its existing solution , it would take TWM Solicitors weeks to rebuild its environment , including exchange servers and critical document management systems . The company ’ s need for fast , easy and reliable Disaster Recovery ( DR ) led it to partner with Zerto to protect its data and servers .
Before Zerto , TWM Solicitors faced the risk of ransomware attacks and had no clear Disaster Recovery processes in place to ensure it could recreate its complex environment in the event of any disruptions . The platform ’ s continuous data protection provided TWM Solicitors with simple , fast recovery with recovery point objectives of seconds and recovery time objectives of minutes .
TWM Solicitors moved to a hybrid cloud DR model with Zerto to support its recent shift from primarily on-premises – based operations to increasingly remote-based . In addition to the faster , more granular recovery , the hybrid cloud approach allows it the flexibility to move applications and add capacity on demand to optimise for remote working .
With limited IT staff , TWM Solicitors needed a solution that was simple to deploy and use that required minimal maintenance . With Zerto , the TWM Solicitors IT team has been able to reallocate time to more productive tasks . Additionally , it is now able to recover from any event in a few clicks , which saves its IT team time .
“ Prior to having Zerto , I would ’ ve had to literally run a backup , restore , backup , restore . It probably would ’ ve taken me two to three days restoring and configuring . Prior to that , I probably would ’ ve had to spend up to a week to be fully operational again ,” said Alan Barrett , Head of IT at TWM Solicitors .
