Kroll Ontrack empowers local control over data with mobile ediscovery technology and local expertise
Amid global legal changes which affect the transfer of data between countries and in regulated industries, organisations are grappling with how best to address data privacy concerns when dealing with investigations, regulatory demands for information and compliance requirements. In response, Kroll Ontrack has today launched a unique service delivery model combining portable ediscovery technologies and consultancy, empowering organisations to capture, analyze, process, filter and review data anywhere.
Kroll Ontrack’s mobile solution combines powerful processing and review technologies, with local consultative expertise to enable onsite filtering, examination and review of data – without the need for a data center or a fixed, in-country solution. Kroll Ontrack’s computer forensic and investigations experts conduct targeted data analysis and work side-by-side with compliance, ediscovery teams lawyers to home in on specific user activity and formulate fact-based case strategies, on location.
“The power, portability and flexibility of our mobile solution has accelerated our ability to help global clients address global data challenges, literally anywhere,” says Wendy King, product director, Kroll Ontrack. “In the last six months, we have seen a significant increase in clients needing assistance with complex, often sensitive investigations in regions or industries with restrictive privacy laws or complicated regulations. Our integrated global solution, deployed by consultants who are familiar with local laws, languages and cultural issues, gives our clients access to powerful technology and local expertise wherever and whenever they need them.”
Today, ediscovery is becoming an important element of the business and corporate governance landscape, even for countries that do not have an obligation to carry out ediscovery under their legal framework. A recent New Frontiers in Ediscovery report by Kroll Ontrack notes the rapid growth of ediscovery across Europe and Asia and highlights the adaptability of ediscovery technology, which is now used in a wealth of legal scenarios and not just limited to litigation cases.
“Global organizations and law firms are turning to versatile ediscovery technologies to handle a wide range of data management situations,” said Mark Williams, CEO, Kroll Ontrack. “Specifically, mobile technology partnered with local consultative expertise can be a cornerstone for better understanding a dataset, whether investigating fraud and corruption around the globe, handling litigation data in highly regulated environments, industries or countries, or retrieving highly sensitive company data internationally or domestically”.
Tim Phillips, Managing Director of Kroll Ontrack International Legal Technologies, said: “The recent invalidation of the Safe Harbor regime, General Data Protection Regulation reform in the EU, and China State Secrecy laws are forcing organisations to tighten their data management practices and seek tangible solutions such as mobile ediscovery to address data privacy challenges.”
Demand from clients all over the world for local expertise and support has driven the expansion of Kroll Ontrack’s global network of data centers and document review teams. In addition to Kroll Ontrack’s mobile solution and five data centers (US, UK, France, Germany, Japan), Kroll Ontrack has 30 offices around the globe with jurisdictional expertise to support a truly global service offering. As well as opening its German data center in Frankfurt in May 2014, Kroll Ontrack launched its French data center in Paris earlier in 2015 along with its highly successful and fast-growing document review center in London’s legal district in January 2015. Since the end of 2015 Kroll Ontrack has been providing teams of project lawyers for document review, either in their document review centers in Böblingen,and Frankfurt or at their client’s premises. Most recently, Kroll Ontrack announced the offering of ediscovery services in China to help clients observe State Secrecy laws and the integration of Relativity into its UK offering, with plans to launch Relativity into its Tokyo environment in March of 2016. Kroll Ontrack is a Relativity Best in Service partner and won the 2015 Relativity Innovation Award for Best Service Provider Solution.
