AXEL Go is a file sharing app that allows users to collect, share, and store data in a secure way. Firms can keep their sensitive information in the cloud (which is a decentralized, encrypted, blockchain-based network), on-premises, or in a hybrid of both. They can send secure requests to clients asking them to upload documents directly into the secure AXEL system. And they can share data-sets with third parties in a controlled, secured manner.

The AXEL Go app has an initial free tier in it’s pricing model, but we suggest only using this to try it out. For $9.99/month you get everything except on-premises storage, including Secure Fetch.
AXEL Go assists law firms in collecting, storing, and sharing information. Firms can easily retrieve information from clients (or other third-parties) without sacrificing security through Secure Fetch. They can secure access to large or sensitive document sets with encrypted sharing. And an office can easily encrypt their sensitive documents and maintain them in a safe environment with secure storage.
No, the AXEL Go app does not integrate with any LPMS systems. If it did, it would undermine the security of your document management, as AXEL Go’s file storage and sharing methods are likely more secure than any LPMS platform.
Yes. The AXEL Go app lets offices securely share with clients, opposing counsel, or any third-party without the need for them to be AXEL Go users. Further, this secure share is done without mining any user data.
No, the AXEL Go app and the AXEL Network are not a collaboration, or document creation platform, so they do not currently have version control capabilities.
No. AXEL Go is more of a secure document management system than an information management system. It does not scan your documents, rather, it breaks them into pieces (called shards) and distributes them across the AXEL file sharing network.
Yes, and no. If you are imaging entire hard drives, then you may still need to deliver your discovery through other means. However, AXEL Go file sharing allows your office to securely send and retrieve documents (with no size limitation) to and from third-parties. This is much more secure than email. And, since the stored files are encrypted and protected, it is much more confidential (and therefore safer) than most popular online document storage platforms.
While all security methods have their vulnerabilities, AXEL Go, when used appropriately, is likely secure enough for all manner of law practices.
The AXEL Go app is as easy as any of the other popular online document storage platforms out there. The web app user interface is straightforward, and the local file sharing application is easy to download and get started with.
Yes. AXEL Go has a web application, as well as downloads for Windows, iOS, Android, and OSX. So, provided your office has access to a modern browser, AXEL Go will work for you, or, more importantly, for your clients.
AXEL Go is for small to medium-sized attorneys who are looking to increase their document security. In particular, it is for offices looking for a secure way to get confidential documents from their clients with ease. It is also a great solution for those who often share large discovery packages with opposing attorneys, as they have no file size limits.
Attorneys with a small number of clients that have already set-up encrypted communications (like PGP encryption) may not find this necessary. However, the encrypted storage alone may be worth the price of admission.
Alternatively, attorneys who are looking for a comprehensive document management platform may find AXEL Go and the AXEL Network lacking in a few key collaboration items.
