NetDocuments, the leading Software-as-a-Service document and email management (DMS) provider for law firms and corporate legal departments, announced today the Global 100/Am law 100 law firm BakerHostetler will replace its on-premises DMS with NetDocuments modern technology to leverage NetDocuments' security-as-a-service platform to meet client-driven demands for enhanced security, compliance, and usability for email and document management.

Bob Craig, CIO at BakerHostetler and key technology influencer commented, "Through our extensive due diligence and evaluation of DMS options, it became clear that the NetDocuments service is leading DMS innovation for the legal market and setting new standards for ease-of-use combined with a world-class security-as-a-service and compliance infrastructure. This is simply not feasible with on-premises or hosted on-premises technology."

"The power and simplicity of a single global instance of NetDocuments software, seamlessly upgraded and made available to all our offices and users, truly elevates the level of legal services, data protection, and productivity tools we provide to our clients and personnel," concluded Craig.

NetDocuments' native cloud platform eliminates much of the complexity and security liabilities inherent with an on-premises or hosted on-premises DMS technology. "We're thrilled to see an innovator like BakerHostetler, recently recognized for advancements in utilizing artificial intelligence to streamline legal services, adopting NetDocuments to improve security, information governance, and productivity across the firm's 14 office network," said Matt Duncan, CEO at NetDocuments. "We're seeing unprecedented growth across global firms and corporate legal departments, indicating what we believe to be the next major DMS transition for the legal market. Firms are being challenged to solve issues around data protection, cybersecurity vulnerabilities, and mobile productivity, in addition to increasing client demands for a secure, highly usable, and modern DMS platform.
