TWD & Associates and service-disabled veteran-owned small business IP Data Solutions have partnered to provide government agencies an electronic discovery system intended to help comply with laws on managing archives.
The companies intend for the system to move legacy email and data files to a cloud-based storage platform with embedded search tool to help users find documents for litigation and research, TWD said Tuesday.
Inspector general, general counsel, Government Accountability Office and Congressional Budget Office requests are also included in the system, according to TWD.
“Government agencies must comply with data retention and email archival legislation to ensure information is available and accessible,” said Larry Besterman, TWD president and CEO.
“A normal eDiscovery process could require weeks to cull through existing archives,” Besterman said, adding the companies aim to help agencies perform searches within seconds.
Delivered as a managed service, the system is intended to not require hardware or software and be interoperable with other e-discovery systems.
The companies aim to help clients comply with regulations such as Statement on Accounting Standards Type II, PCI Data Security Standard Level 1, Data Security Standard Level 1, International Organization of Standards 27001 and the Federal Information Security Management Act.
