WAMS, INC. Wanting All Members Secure


At WAMS, we are proud to celebrate that we have been a Business Partner of the OC-ALA for more than 2 decades. Many OC-ALA members are valued clients of WAMS, and we have truly enjoyed the wonderful relationships we have developed with OC-ALA members. This past year, we have had SO much fun with the OC-ALA. We had an absolute blast listening to the talented children at the House of Blues, bowling at Bowlmor Lanes, and getting a few of you to play cactus ring toss with us at ACES! But, of course, one of our favorite things to do is get to know members better, and for all of you to get to know us better. We are thrilled to meet someone new and receive the inquiry, “What is WAMS?” or “What does WAMS do?”

Many of you may not know that WAMS is an acronym, and stands for “Williams Automated Management Services.” WAMS is a boutique IT company dedicated to providing outsourced IT support for our clients. Over 95% of our clients are law firms in Orange County and Los Angeles. We have been providing solutions to law firms since our doors opened in 1974.


WAMS provides a number of IT services including cloud computing, backup and disaster recovery, IT projects and upgrades, training, and more! Most recently, our security and cloud computing solutions have been the most vital ways that we have helped our clients achieve their technology objectives and keep their networks secure. This past year we have expanded our team and continue to advance our services, solutions, and support.


Beginning 2016 to present, we have expanded our Network Operations Center (NOC), and our NOC team works day in and day out to ensure that our clients’ backups are successful every single day. They also ensure our clients’ servers are monitored and routinely updated with the latest security patches and updates. We continue to grow our help desk, now with 8 team members, all hired out of law firms. This allows WAMS to answer your support requests live from 7am – 6pm Monday-Friday.


WAMS CloudConnect 2.0

WAMS CloudConnect 2.0 has taken our CloudConnect solution to the next level. Our new solution allows us to offer Windows 10 Themed desktops utilizing shared Windows 2016 Server sessions in order to stream your suite of business applications to any device you choose. We know that you are busy managing your firm, your staff is working hard on behalf of your clients, and the last thing you want to do is worry about IT responsibilities. Your time should not be wasted adding and deleting users, worrying about security when a device is misplaced or stolen, or maintaining and updating individual desktops and applications. CloudConnect has been an important solution service that we offer our clients because we eliminate those aforementioned tedious tasks. In this day and age, attorneys are becoming more and more mobile and they want to work from their favorite devices. Whether they are working from a client’s office, a hotel room, or at home, we provide the ability to access your network from anywhere on any device while keeping your network always available, secure, and compliant. Your entire staff can stay productive, and most importantly, billable.


WAMS Security Services

It is no secret that there are more cyber threats targeting small businesses and law firms than ever before, and these numbers seem to increase by the second. According to Symantec’s 2017 Internet Security Threat Report, “The average profit per victim for a ransomware author jumped from $294 in 2015 to $1,077 in 2017 - a 266% increase.” A review by IBM Security concluded that ransomware messages are up 6,000% from 2016 to 2017. Many smaller firms believe that cyber-attacks will not happen because they are so small. This way of thinking is flawed because although your firm may be small, your clients’ data is confidential, valuable information, and cybercriminals know it. Client liability insurance has become more and more important for law firms, and with our solutions you stay compliant and decrease your firm’s liabilities by a landslide. We help your firm to stay protected with vulnerability and penetration testing, and then provide you the correct solutions to strengthen your online security. We provide solutions from Mimecast and Sonicwall, and design multiple layers of security on all servers and desktops we protect and manage so that all of your bases are covered.

 

We choose to offer a unique approach with our clients as we keep our implementation agreements friendly and flexible to take advantage of opportunities that will benefit both the client and WAMS. We will never ask a client to sign any long term contract or agreement. From start to finish, WAMS cares about your business and we have made it our mission to support you to be as successful as you can be.


If you have any questions, please reach out by emailing info@wamsinc.com or calling 800-421-7151. We look forward to another fantastic year with the OC-ALA!
