Exterro Announces Launch of Groundbreaking Data Source Discovery™ Solution
Portland, Ore., Sept. 17, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Exterro Inc., the preferred provider of Legal GRC software and the Association of Corporate Counsel exclusive Alliance Partner for Data Privacy and Cybersecurity Compliance and E-Discovery, announced today the launch of the Exterro Data Source Discovery. This innovative addition to the Exterro Legal GRC Suite allows Legal teams to easily obtain a comprehensive list of data sources, automatically and without the need to involve IT.
Legal teams often face challenges when trying to find data quickly, whether it’s needed for litigation, a data subject access request, internal investigation, or other business process. Adding to this problem is the ease at which different business units—and even employee groups within those units—can create new data sources such as a new Slack channel or a new Microsoft Teams or SharePoint site that is unknown to the Legal team. Relying on IT to find these new data sources and collect relevant information often adds critical time delays.
“For many years we’ve heard our clients describe the countless hours it takes between in-house professionals, outside counsel, and IT to scope discovery,” said Chief Marketing Officer Bill Piwonka. “Custodian interviews, follow-up questions, conference calls, data collection and re-collections, surprise data sources, more interviews, etc. create a time-consuming and expensive process. A large company on a significant matter can spend hundreds of hours just getting prepared to identify where potentially relevant data is. Exterro Data Source Discovery eliminates all this wasted effort and dramatically reduces the time to create—while increasing the accuracy of—your data source catalog.”
Designed specifically for legal professionals, Exterro Data Source Discovery solves these massive headaches by:
“The burden on Legal and IT teams to effectively identify and preserve new sources of information within their organization has increased tremendously over the past few years, with the current work-from-home environment only exacerbating the issue,” says Ross Dubinsky, Director, Legal Management Consulting for global advisory firm Stout. “Technology that enables legal professionals to systematically address these key challenges, like Exterro Data Source Discovery, can play a big role in helping organizations mitigate risk while also increasing productivity.”
