Casepoint, a leader in cloud-based legal technology solutions, has announced the general availability in the European Union (EU) of its secure end-to-end discovery platform.
Recognized for its stringent security and adherence to rigorous compliance standards, the platform’s availability in Europe will benefit global and EU-based organizations, government bodies and legal service providers with faster processing times and compliance with the EU’s data localization requirements.
The move highlights Casepoint’s growing market presence beyond the U.S. and increasing engagements in EU, international and cross-border discovery matters. This accelerated demand has been generated by factors including a widespread shift to cloud-based technologies in order to sustain COVID-driven remote working; increased EU scrutiny and enforcement of compliance GDPR safeguards for personally identifiable information (PII); and a more intense focus by companies on the security of their data centers in response to tougher e-privacy regulation.
“Organizations worldwide are responding to the more stringent regulatory environment - as well as to the wider use of cloud-based data centers - by intensifying their focus on data governance to ensure watertight security and compliance,” said Vipul Rajpara, Co-Founder and COO at Casepoint. “As a result, we’re handling an increasing number of U.S. and international matters, and many of our U.S-based clients are beginning to expand into Europe and beyond. Given the rigor of today’s regulatory climate, opening up an EU data center is an important strategic step for us and our customers.”
By making its discovery platform available in the EU, Casepoint positions itself to address evolving EU data localization regulations, which require data about a nation’s citizens or residents to be collected, processed, and/or stored inside the country before being transferred internationally. It also increases the efficiency of the platform as the complexity and scope of litigation, investigations and compliance continue to expand.
Casepoint’s platform is primarily used in investigations and data subject access request management, in antitrust scrutiny for proposed mergers and acquisitions, and in litigation. Casepoint’s technology features fast, enterprise-class tools for full-spectrum eDiscovery, and supports legal data discovery workflows across millions of documents, terabytes of data, thousands of legal matters, and unlimited users.
“Casepoint’s CaseAssist has long been an essential tool for Level Legal, particularly in our work on complex second request projects for multinational antitrust investigations,” said Jeff Guttman, Director of Client Services at Level Legal. “These projects—which require us to cull, review and produce relevant material from massive volumes of information on extremely tight deadlines—often include data from European jurisdictions, so we are thrilled to learn Casepoint is expanding its presence in Europe.”
Casepoint’s security certifications and third-party audits include: FedRAMP Moderate Authorization, SOC 1, SOC 2, SOC 3, ISO 9001:2015, ISO 27001:2013, Privacy Shield, NIST 800-53, NIST 800-171 and SIG Questionnaire.
