Exterro, Inc., the leading provider of legal governance, risk and compliance (GRC) management solutions, announced a strategic partnership with the eDiscovery Solutions Group (eDSG), an international consortium of GRC and eDiscovery consultants, system integrators, litigation service providers and software vendors. With this partnership, Global 2000 enterprises will benefit from the solutions needed to support their litigation and legal GRC processes through eDSG's global network of professional services and system integration resources.
Starting with Fusion Genome, Exterro's comprehensive automated data mapping solution, eDSG will provide Exterro's full Fusion solution suite, including Legal Hold, Discovery Workflow Management, FusionGo and Fusion Cloud to Global 2000 enterprises. With this partnership, companies will gain the ability to choose partners, applications, or enhanced services support through one integrated resource.
Recent case law underscores the importance of being able to accurately identify information to be preserved during litigation. Enterprises have vast amounts of electronically stored information (ESI) stored in disparate locations and require an up-to-date data map to remain in compliance. Fusion Genome's process automation accelerates response, reduces work, ensures compliance and guarantees an evergreen data map, mirroring a company's information universe as it evolves. Fusion Genome enables enterprises to quickly answer critical questions about their ESI before litigation begins.
"I am very pleased to be introducing the Fusion solution suite, starting withw Fusion Genome, to our Global 2000 client base," said Charles Skamser, CEO of eDiscovery Solutions Group. "The eDSG consortium of GRC and e-discovery consultants will now have the technology to fully automate enterprise data mapping requirements and set the stage to quickly and easily provide a complete platform for litigation holds and GRC data management."
The two companies plan to offer further direct connections between Exterro's Fusion line of legal governance, risk and compliance management solutions and eDSG's implementation and professional service offerings, enabling companies to quickly optimize best-of-breed solutions. Exterro's clients and partners will gain access to a global professional services and integration network, and eDSG clients will gain value from the industry's leading e-discovery and GRC solution suite.
"I am extremely pleased that eDSG's network of eDiscovery service providers and consultants plan to begin leveraging Fusion," said Bobby Balachandran, President and CEO of Exterro, Inc.
