About Legalty

My law firm uses LegalSuite. Heard of it?

Yes. LegalSuite is a popular software choice throughout South Africa’s legal sector. It’s a turnkey application sold by the Durban-based company LegalSuite Software.

Yes. The Legalty solution can be deployed for LegalSuite users. We can provide a managed IT environment that incorporates your existing LegalSuite software and Microsoft 365, along with advanced security and device-management capabilities.

Bear in mind that we do not provide licences for LegalSuite. We do not sell LegalSuite, either.

Is BUI familiar with any other legal software?

Yes. Our staff are familiar with a variety of third-party software applications used in the legal sector.

We would be able to assist you with technical issues related to your third-party software, via the helpdesk or support centre of the third party concerned. We believe that two heads are better than one! With twice the problem-solving power, you could expect a quicker solution. Plus, you’d be free to focus on other priorities while we worked to remedy the situation.

I’m running non-Microsoft software programs. Can I sign up for Legalty?

Yes. The Legalty solution can be deployed for you, and we can find a secure solution for your third-party software programs.

We can also migrate your existing software to a cloud-based environment to minimise your local dependency on large servers that require costly upkeep and maintenance.

I don’t have any specialised legal software. Can I sign up for Legalty?

Yes. The Legalty solution brings you the power of Microsoft 365 in a managed environment, with the security you need and the support you deserve.

M365 delivers the applications you know (like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint) as well as performance tools to enable team-wide communication, collaboration, and productivity.

Law firms handle personal info, private data, and sensitive material every day. If you’re concerned about information security and data privacy in the face of legislation like the GDPR and the POPI Act, then ask us to help you address your compliance requirements.

I’m concerned about ransomware and other malware. How can Legalty help?

Legalty provides Advanced Threat Protection, a comprehensive security solution from Microsoft. ATP helps to protect you and your team from malicious cyberattacks by scanning email attachments, checking links, and detecting phishing messages, among other activities.

My company has a large server that runs our Exchange, Active Directory, SQL Server and File Server. How will Legalty help?

Legalty will be able to migrate your Exchange, Active Directory and File Server to a secure Microsoft cloud environment. Our consultants are also able to assist with your SQL Server migration to the cloud.

All the parts will still be linked, with added security and built-in redundancy.

My current setup works the way it is. Why should I consider Legalty?

Our existing clients are probably the best people to answer this question, but we have seen three decision factors time after time:

The financial factor

  • Legalty has a set monthly cost
  • Legalty doesn’t require resource-intensive local servers
  • Legalty gives people the flexibility to work from any location

The security factor

  • Legalty enables device control
  • Legalty provides data encryption
  • Legalty offers protection against malware

The compliance factor

  • Legalty has data security built in
  • Legalty facilitates legal mail archiving
  • Legalty has redundancy protocols built in

We’re confident that Legalty will help you and your team to achieve more – securely.
