KrolLDiscovery's new data centre commenced operations in Ireland on November 1.
KrolLDiscovery has opened its newest ISO 27001-certified data centre in Ireland in response to growing international investigations and other legal matters that require local support and hosting. With this new centre, KrolLDiscovery becomes the largest ediscovery provider with a dedicated presence in the country.
Companies based in Ireland face additional litigation risks due to cross-border data regulation and international arbitration. Additionally, global investigations led by U.S. authorities are on the rise and expose corporations to increased legal risk, as does cooperation between regulators enforcing antitrust laws across multiple countries.
"KrolLDiscovery will be able to address many of the challenges organisations in Ireland face today with our latest global data centre opening," said Chris Weiler, CEO of KrolLDiscovery. "We have noticed a growing number of international matters that require organisations to collect, analyse and produce electronic documents in a timely and cost-effective manner in-country. Our experience with high-profile, high-stakes investigations and litigation will be a significant asset to these organisations."
"We know that it is important to our clients to be able to process and host data in-country in response to stringent data protection laws and timeliness is key in many legal matters," continued Weiler. "The new KrolLDiscovery data center will give organisations more control over their data. We could not be more excited to bring our best-in-class technology, footprint and signature 'white glove' client service to this market."
