Recommind Localizes Data for Secure eDiscovery in the Cloud

Leading eDiscovery Provider Expands Data Centers Internationally to Support Evolving Data Security, Privacy and Compliance Needs

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 28, 2014) - Recommind, a leader in information intelligence, today announced the launch of its Phoenix and Toronto data centers to meet its customers' data security, privacy and compliance needs in the cloud. United States- and Canadian-based customers can now utilize Recommind's cloud-based eDiscovery review and analysis platform, Axcelerate OnDemand, to meet national data privacy and compliance regulations in order to minimize security and data privacy challenges.

Understanding the concern associated with hosting data across borders, Recommind has continued to expand its data centers around the world, with local data center options in the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany and Canada -- each designed and operated to accommodate national regulations.

"We're on the frontline of compliance and risk mitigation," said Bob Tennant, CEO, Recommind. "Law firms and corporate legal departments, dealing with highly sensitive information, require especially stringent practices to meet data security and compliance needs. Our goal in expanding our data center footprint is to give our customers the ability to properly address new global concerns about data localization in the cloud."

Recommind's new and existing data centers offer organizations the following benefits:

  • Data security / privacy: By keeping data in-country, Recommind's customers can ensure they are compliant with their respective data privacy regulations. This includes: the Federal Data Protection Act in Germany; the Data Protection Act in the United Kingdom; the Data Protection Directive in the European Union; and the Personal Information Act (PIPA) and Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) in Canada.
  • Data acceleration: With data centers located close to their headquarters, customers will experience reduced latency, as the distance for data to travel is greatly minimized leading to better customer experience.

About the Phoenix and Toronto Data Centers

The secure Phoenix- and Toronto-based data centers have systems monitored around the clock, 365 days a year by Recommind OnDemand's operations and engineering teams to ensure availability and performance expectations are maintained. This includes protection against physical and virtual threats. Client data remains entirely in-country and can be received through secure high-speed electronic file transfer or direct shipment of physical media to the data center.

The Phoenix-based data center is certified to the Statements on Standards for Attestation Engagement (SSAE) 16, guaranteeing security, compliance and safety-related requirements for controls and safeguards are met when hosting customer data. The data center is also certified to the Information Security Management Standard (ISO) 27001, which ensures risks and threats are assessed and managed.

The Toronto-based data center is certified to the Canadian Standard on Assurance Engagements (CSAE) 3416, guaranteeing sensitive data is properly handled by a hosting facility that is compliant with industry mandates, including security management, policies, procedures and network architecture. The data center is also certified to the Information Security Management System Standard (ISO) 27001, which ensures risks and threats are assessed and managed, and the Quality Management System Standard (ISO) 9001, which ensures a structured approach to improving customer experience.

This is Recommind's second data center being deployed in Canada and the fifth data center being deployed in North America. Recommind's other data centers are located in the United Kingdom and Germany.
