Masergy Communications Inc. has announced that McKenna Long & Aldridge LLP, a global law firm headquartered in Washington D.C., has deployed the company's Managed Cloud Networking solution. Through Masergy, the law firm has improved its application performance and network reliability while easily scaling services.

With more than 575 attorneys and advisors and 15 offices spanning 13 cities across the globe, McKenna Long & Aldridge wanted a high-performance and secure platform for its sensitive data, client video depositions and collaborative applications. In addition, the firm needed agile and fully-managed network connectivity with the ability to quickly scale services to new offices.

Masergy's Managed Cloud Networking with patented Real-time Analytics enabled McKenna Long & Aldridge to:

  • Increase the number of attorney/client video conferences by a factor of three — with measurably better visuals and no dropped calls
  • Easily connect new offices and employees to their corporate network
  • Dynamically scale bandwidth to adapt to changing business requirements

"Masergy is a very good partner to help us grow and rearrange our business over time," said Patrick Tisdale, CIO of McKenna Long & Aldridge. "We are often setting up, moving or closing offices as we grow – it’s part of the constant repositioning we do to best serve our clients. Masergy is much faster than its competitors in being able to respond to these changes in our business, implementing high quality communications services wherever we find our attorneys need to be."

"The IT needs of global law firms are constantly evolving and the network needs to keep pace," said Tim Naramore, Chief Technology Officer for Masergy. "McKenna Long & Aldridge is a perfect example of how Masergy's fully managed networking services and real-time analytics tools can dramatically improve business productivity."
