Shawe Rosenthal, a Baltimore-based labor and employment law firm, was looking to update its IT architecture. The firm wanted more efficiency, security and flexibility, which their aging on-premise systems were unable provide. Meanwhile, their existing managed services provider (MSP) was resource constrained and didn’t have the capability set to move the client towards digital transformation. Shawe Rosenthal recognized that they needed a new, trusted partner to help modernize their IT infrastructure in order to accomplish their goal.



After completing a thorough assessment of the firm’s needs, Thrive’s engineering team determined Shawe Rosenthal’s IT support structure required better redundancy, higher levels of security and the ability to provide the firm’s partners with seamless remote work access. Thrive approached this challenge with a complete overhaul of the firm’s systems and migration to a fully-customized Hybrid Cloud solution. During the process, Thrive consolidated the existing servers and moved Shawe Rosenthal into a modern Cloud Desktop as a Service (DaaS) platform that not only directly addressed the firm’s needs, but also added the benefits of scalable storage and a comprehensive disaster recovery solution.



Shawe Rosenthal is now leveraging ThriveCloud, Thrive’s best-in-class VMware, Cloud Service, housed in a world-class SOC2 Type II-certified data center. In addition to boosting the stability and security of the firm’s IT Infrastructure, their partners now have access to their applications and data from anywhere, anytime and from any device. The robust Cloud solution also reduced capital spending by consolidating servers, resulting in a smaller footprint of on-premise devices and adding an additional level of resiliency.

Thrive now provides 24×7 monitoring, management and support of the Cloud solution – providing the firm with peace of mind that their mission critical legal applications will always available.
