By Kathryn Hughes | Friday, August 22, 2014

Review of Pertino Plus Five Google+ Local Tips

By Kathryn Hughes | Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Coming today to SmallLaw: Once upon a time, even solo practices had a file server. Then the cloud arrived. Law firms eschewed buying a "headless" computer given the much lower cost of Dropbox. But law firms eventually realized that Dropbox is essentially a glorified floppy drive. In this issue of Smalllaw, New Jersey lawyer Ed Zohn reviews Pertino. This hosted virtual private network service aims to combine the low cost of Dropbox with the advantages of a file server. Ed lays down the law on whether Pertino succeeds at this balancing act. Also, don't miss the SmallLaw Pick of the Week for five overlooked ranking factors for Google+ Local.
