Pulsant, the market leading cloud computing, managed hosting and colocation expert, has announced a strategic partnership with Peppermint Technology that will see the two technology companies come together to provide a unique enterprise cloud solution, designed specifically to service the needs of the legal and dispute market.

Peppermint Technology, an award-winning legal and dispute management technology provider, supplies its legal service platform, built on Microsoft CRM Dynamics, to more than 5,000 users in this market.

The company has awarded Pulsant a multi-year contract to host the Peppermint Shared Cloud platform and provide a range of private cloud solutions dedicated to individual firms.

“Our industry is quickly embracing cloud technology because increasingly law firms want to focus on the law and leave IT to the specialists,” says Arlene Adams, CEO, Peppermint.

“A shared cloud environment also gives many firms access to a level, grade and service of technology they otherwise could not afford.  By selecting Pulsant as our technology partner, we are able to offer our clients a range of hosting solutions tailored to their size, budget and business requirements.

“The flexibility of the Pulsant offer, combined with their scale of operation, vast experience and specialist skill base, made them a natural choice.”

Pulsant offers a combination of advisory services, a mature hosting portfolio and service management methodologies to over 3,000 companies across a range of industries, including heavily regulated markets such as financial services, legal and government.

The company owns and operates a network of 10 ISO27001 compliant UK-based data centres, manages over 28,000 servers, 10PB of data and participates on the government G-Cloud Framework.

“We designed a robust architected platform, that enables the growth, scalability and reliability that is expected for a business critical, 24/7 operation,” says Tom Brand, business development manager, Pulsant.

“After extensive consultation with Peppermint’s product and service teams, including rigorous testing, Pulsant has created, in conjunction with Peppermint, a reference architecture for the Peppermint legal service platform. Both Peppermint and Pulsant aim to set a new benchmark in cloud computing for the legal and dispute market.”

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
