eXpd8 Cloud provides increased security compared to traditional data storage methods which are under the ever increasing ransomware attacks from professional criminals.

“eXpd8 has been providing specialist services to the legal industry for over 30 years and we are seeing more and more firms come to us to provide protection and better security for their local networks.  Due to recent increased attacks, more practices have been moving their entire working environment to the eXpd8 cloud for an even higher level of security in line with EU compliant data protection.  To date, 200 clients have made the switch,” explains Declan Branagan, CEO, eXpd8.  “We invested with Microsoft, the leader in its field, to avoid these threats and help legal firms safeguard their practices.  We are committed to providing freedom of mobility, peace of mind through enhanced security and EU compliant data protection to the legal profession.”

“eXpd8’s success is a great example of an independent software vendor (ISV) building their business on our Azure Cloud platform; making our data centre their data centre.  This enables ISVs to leverage our global footprint and independently verified adherence to standards and best practice for Security and Data Protection,”

adds Patrick Ward, Developer Experience Lead, Microsoft Ireland.  “The scale and flexibility of Azure means that eXpd8’s customers can benefit from best in class Practice Environment with increased security and collaboration for their business.”
