MINNEAPOLIS: Kroll Ontrack, an E-Discovery solutions provider launched a service delivery model combining mobile ediscovery technologies alongside consultative expertise, empowering organizations to capture, analyze, process, filter and review data anywhere. “The power, portability and flexibility of our mobile solution have accelerated our ability to help global clients address global data challenges, literally anywhere,” says Wendy King, Product Director, Kroll Ontrack.

Kroll Ontrack’s computer forensic and investigations experts conduct targeted data analysis and work side-by-side with compliance, ediscovery teams and counsel to home in on specific user activity and formulate fact-based case strategies on location. Kroll Ontrack’s mobile solution constitutes powerful processing and review technologies with local consultative expertise to enable onsite filtering, examination and review of data – without the constraints of a data center or a fixed, in-country solution.

 “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.” King added.

In the contemporary times ediscovery is becoming an essential part of the business and corporate governance landscape, even for countries that do not have an obligation to carry out ediscovery under their legal framework. ‘Ediscovery Goes Global’, a 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 landscapes 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.”
