Casepoint Achieves FedRAMP Authorization for Cloud-Based eDiscovery Solution

Casepoint Achieves FedRAMP Authorization for Cloud-Based eDiscovery Solution

FedRAMP Authorization validates Casepoint’s leadership in security for eDiscovery and clears the way to providing cloud services to other agencies across the federal government

Tysons, VA — June 1, 2020 — Enterprise eDiscovery technology leader Casepoint announced today that Casepoint Government, an eDiscovery and litigation support platform specially configured for government clients, has achieved FedRAMP Moderate Authorization. Casepoint achieved this significant milestone with the sponsorship of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The SEC recently selected Casepoint’s technology to pilot moving their eDiscovery to the cloud. With this new authorization, other public sector clients can benefit from Casepoint’s fast, powerful, and easy to use eDiscovery solution for their litigation, investigation, examination, compliance, and FOIA needs.

The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, known as FedRAMP, is one of the federal government’s most rigorous security compliance frameworks. FedRAMP provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services used in federal agencies. This approach applies a “do once, use many times” framework that reduces the cost, time, and staff required to conduct agency security assessments. Government data is extremely sensitive, and agencies must follow strict requirements for data integrity and defensibility. FedRAMP authorization is mandatory for federal agency cloud deployments.

“FedRAMP Authorization for Casepoint will allow us to support federal agencies that must meet the demands of increased litigation, growing data volumes, and the need to comply with strict security requirements,” said Amy Hilbert, Vice President, Casepoint Public Sector. “By achieving this authorization, we are able to help the federal government leverage artificial intelligence and advanced analytics-based tools that are built into our eDiscovery technology in order to stay ahead of the evolving legal, regulatory, business, and technology landscape.”

As Casepoint’s cloud security framework was already mature by industry standards even before it sought the FedRAMP designation, it was able to secure sponsorship from the SEC and take a faster path toward authorization via FedRAMP’s Agency Authorization Process. Once designated “In Process,” it only took a few months for Casepoint Government to become FedRAMP authorized. Casepoint is now one of only a few eDiscovery vendors to have fulfilled all the criteria for FedRAMP Authorization, which applies to every application in its fully integrated, end-to-end eDiscovery platform.

“We are thrilled—not only to have achieved FedRAMP Authorization with the SEC’s sponsorship, but also to have completed this rigorous process so quickly,” said Sundhar Rajan, Casepoint Chief Information Officer. “Casepoint has accomplished in a year what it takes many vendors several years to get done. That’s a testament to the rigor and culture of security that has been embedded in our company from the beginning. Our goal has always been to provide both public and private sector clients with stringent security standards within a fast, scalable, and flexible cloud computing environment.”

Since its inception, Casepoint has made data security a top priority, subjecting itself to strict approval processes and independent third-party auditing requirements for ISO 27001:2013 certification, as well as SOC 1 Type I and SOC 2 Type II attestations. These and other measures are part of a formal security program at Casepoint that operates continuously at the company level, the data center level, and the web application and database level.

Based on 12 years of innovation in the industry and broad experience in the public sector, Casepoint Government provides agencies with a scalable, secure, and customizable computing environment. When Casepoint designed the architecture for the latest version of Casepoint Government, it proactively built in new capabilities for meeting FedRAMP requirements, which included more than 300 different security controls. The company also made organizational and process changes to its support, operations, and maintenance functions to ensure all data managed in the platform would remain in the US—an important FedRAMP provision. In addition, Casepoint hired consulting firms to help them prepare for and navigate the FedRAMP authorization process, including a Third-Party Assessment Organization (3PAO) to conduct testing. Casepoint Government is designed to meet the government’s strictest security requirements while providing 100% US-based hosting, maintenance, support, and services.

ALSP and Legal Tech Competition Won’t Be ‘Zero-Sum Game’ Post-COVID-19 [Law.com]

Businesses are likely still in the process of evaluating the long-term impact that COVID-19 will have on their legal spend budgets, and what that means for their interest in legal technology or relationships with alternative legal service providers (ALSPs). But decisions may ultimately depend on a simple calculus made by each organization: Does the comprehensive range of services offered by many ALSPs trump the return on investment offered by purchasing a piece of legal tech for in-house use?

Working Remotely: 5 Best Cloud & Security Practices

Working Remotely: 5 Best Cloud & Security Practices

This “new normal” has brought about many changes in various industries. There has been a mindset shift when considering the need to work remotely on a grand scale. Organizations that had not implemented cloud technologies prior to the stay-at-home order, may have experienced challenges when transitioning to work from home. For those that have had access to cloud technologies during this time, have been able to witness the benefits that the cloud provides. It’s clear that the cloud is instrumental to productive and effective remote working. The new processes and infrastructures that are materializing in response to the pandemic are going to persist and affect our routines in the future. This virtual reality is going to carry on well after we venture outside to our offices, so the need for cloud technology is greater now more than ever.

There are 5 things to keep in mind as this mental shift takes hold, and as working remotely becomes more accepted. These components make working from home a viable option for our present-day and post-pandemic future.

1. Cloud-based Technology is the Future

Prior to the requirement to work remotely, a number of organizations questioned whether or not cloud-based solutions would be a good fit or would fill their needs. It is becoming obvious now that cloud-based technology is essential – it can solve issues as they arise while simultaneously keeping teams connected.

In addition to investing in good quality and reliable hardware, investing in reliable technology solutions and virtual infrastructure is even more fundamental. Cloud-based SaaS solutions can improve workflows exponentially. They allow for flexible and easily accessible directories. With the cloud, all your files can be accessed from anywhere, any device, any time. For remote employees, this easy access can improve productivity and efficiency. To use Casepoint as an example, the switch to 100% remote was a smooth transition for us, and it was because we had cloud infrastructure in place. Casepoint employees were able to flawlessly resume ongoing projects. 

2. Safe & Secure in the Cloud

Security is always of the utmost importance, especially when it comes to working remotely. When working with a cloud-based solution, it’s important to know that the provider implements policies, technologies, authentication, and encryption that strengthen your security position. Cloud solutions have a team of experts that enforce best security practices to help protect your data and infrastructure from potential threats. Working with a cloud-based SaaS partner that is dedicated to protecting your data is an added security measure. 

Having third-party supervision and vigilance is beneficial for making sure your data is protected. Why allocate money, time, and resources on physical infrastructure to maintain when you can have a team of security professionals committed to maintaining the best security practices when monitoring your data? By using a cloud-based solution, extra security protocols are being outsourced to specialists who stay up-to-date with the complex and quick-changing landscape; they can help protect you from hackers and data breaches. 

3. Scalability is Key – Scale-Up to Meet Your Needs

The cloud is considered to be infinitely scalable given the flexibility to increase storage volume on-demand. Working in a cloud solution, sans physical infrastructure, can be easily managed thanks to its elasticity.  

One of the biggest advantages of cloud-based solutions is the ability to scale quickly to meet needs as they arise. Cloud technology allows for quick scaling of storage usage when needed due to its flexible nature. Being able to increase storage space for an urgent need is critical. Not only does it put one’s mind at ease knowing the availability is there at the drop of a hat, but it also helps to decrease expedited costs and enhances performance. Any process can be made more efficient with the on-demand capabilities the cloud offers. 

4. Speed, Speed, and More Speed – Get it Done in a Flash

Modern-day cloud solutions increase speed across the board and alleviate latency issues, and this is still the case even if data processing requirements increase. For any modern law firm or corporation, workloads are high – therefore the speed of execution is critical. With self-service features, computing resources can be administered whenever required, even sometimes within minutes. This gives organizations the ability to take control when it comes to planning for storage capacity. With the speed of the cloud, you’ll have more time for legal review or strategy rather than waiting for documents to load or process.

5. Easy as 1,2,3

Cloud solutions make working from home easier than ever before. Employees can not only access their files from anywhere, making it easy to work on projects and meet deadlines, but they can also easily collaborate in real time. As mentioned, users can add storage on-demand, they can share and access files easily, and tasks are completed quicker. Everything is made easy.

Cloud-based applications are made to be user friendly and easy-to-use. They give remote workers a fully unified and intuitive user experience. Everything is fully integrated and customizable. Any action is available at the click of a button, and the latest technology is available at the fraction of the time it would take with an on-premise solution. 

BONUS: More Reliable than an old Pick-up Truck

Working within cloud technology makes storage back-up and disaster recovery much easier and less expensive. Cloud-based solutions have the ultimate back-up system, and they prevent the possibility of file loss due to a lack of hardware failures. Data can be easily multiplied on a cloud provider’s network, which helps maintain business continuity for remote workers.

Conclusion 

The moral of this story is, the cloud is what modern, forward-looking organizations need in order to survive and thrive during a crisis of this nature, and even after it’s behind us. Based on these considerations, it’s clear that cloud-based solutions are future, and should not be overlooked. The cloud is capable of saving time, increasing efficiency, improving collaboration, upping security measures, all while being easy to use. 

Essential but Susceptible: Examining Legal Tech’s Risk of Payment Disruption [Law.com]

Given their proactive measures and potentially critical service offerings, legal tech companies are not yet receiving many requests for discounts or extended payment terms. But some caution it may be just a matter of time before more widespread disruption takes hold.

Outstanding invoices may be pilling up at an organization near you. Amid COVID-19 shutdowns and subsequent economic pain, client payment disruptions are becoming more prevalent across the economy. And with many law firms tightening their belts, those servicing the legal industry are likely receiving their fair share of requests for discounts or extended payment terms.

Just how much this is happening in the legal tech industry, however, isn’t entirely clear. But despite certain things in its favor, the industry is susceptible to such disruption, and there are signs that it is, for now, enough of a potential problem to motivate legal tech companies to take proactive measures.

Legal Tech: Preparing for Internal Investigations to Mitigate Risk [Law Journal Newsletters]

How Advanced E-discovery Tools Can Help Simplify Information Gathering, Unify Disparate Information Systems, Standardize Workflows Across Departments, and Reduce Both Costs and Risk

The stakes in internal investigations can turn out to be very high. Companies can often respond effectively if they proactively plan for investigations and leverage technology that can comb through large amounts of data quickly at low cost.

No one welcomes the prospect of an internal investigation. Even a relatively narrow and focused investigation can feel like a distraction from day-to-day business. Broader investigations can become complicated exercises requiring investigators (and sometimes outside counsel) to work with multiple departments and stakeholders, struggle to manage disparate workflows, and sift through mountains of data to arrive at the truth.

While complaints to HR alleging discrimination or harassment based on race or gender are among the most common triggers of an internal investigation, other triggers run the gamut. They include whistle-blower complaints alleging compliance violations or corporate fraud, the loss or theft of physical assets, leaked or stolen data containing sensitive or personal information, and leaked or stolen intellectual property.

The stakes in these matters can turn out to be very high. A purely reactive approach to investigations can not only cause delays in determining the truth, but also increase the likelihood of runaway costs and damage to the company’s reputation.

Now is the time to prepare: What happens as COVID-19 starts to stabilize?

The first half of 2020 so far has been tough to say the least. Globally, COVID-19 has been spreading, markets and employment numbers are down, and there is a general concern about how (or if) life will ever get back to normal. We cannot and should not underplay the significance and severity of these events. 

And yet, humanity is resilient; we already see signs that business is taking hold again. In the legal industry law firms, corporations, government agencies, and service providers have regrouped and are now effectively working from home. SaaS software has been the saving grace of nearly every industry. Whether Zoom, Microsoft 365, or Casepoint, SaaS software has enabled teams to work well together despite geographical boundaries. This crisis has certainly demonstrated that eDiscovery belongs in the cloud and is even thriving despite adverse circumstances. 

We are also seeing signs that litigation is about to grow significantly come summer and fall. Whether from inevitable contract disputes or class action concerns, the level of legal action is going to be substantial. The legal industry needs to prepare.

So what can legal providers do to prepare now for the increased demand and growth that is ahead? 

  1. Move to the cloud. Cloud technology scales, is accessible from anywhere, and can already support your security requirements. 
  2. Rely on companies who are staffed to work remotely and around the clock. You will need support to manage new matters and we know restructuring may have reduced onsite personnel who can help.
  3. Ask about “playbooks” that a technology provider already has to quickly (and even more importantly effectively) onboard new customers. You need support and providers should already have that mapped out…especially if you are migrating from other legacy technologies. 

The reality is that while COVID-19 has caused months of turmoil, there is a growing demand to resolve disputes that have arisen as a result of the virus’s spread. The legal industry is the keystone to manage these disputes. Casepoint is prepared to help you prepare to face the growing demand. The time is now and it is easy to get started.

Check out this short white paper for more information on how cloud technology can benefit your organization now and in the long run.

Peckar & Abramson Upgrades to Casepoint After Extensive Evaluation of eDiscovery Technology Solutions

P&A selects Casepoint for its powerful SaaS platform, integrated artificial intelligence, and value-added options, as the firm transitions from an in-house solution to harness the power, security, and speed of cloud-based ESI management.

Tysons, VA — April 30, 2020 — Enterprise eDiscovery technology leader Casepoint announced today it was selected as the firmwide eDiscovery partner for national construction law firm Peckar & Abramson, PC, (P&A). After a comprehensive evaluation of more than 20 eDiscovery vendors over the past year, Casepoint was chosen as the firm’s preferred ESI provider, as P&A transitions the firm to a more secure, and efficient, cloud-based, end-to-end eDiscovery solution.

Based in New York, NY, P&A has over 115 attorneys across 10 U.S. offices and affiliations around the world. The firm will work with Casepoint to migrate over 18 terabytes of active case data across 300 databases from their legacy eDiscovery system. In addition, Casepoint will also host several terabytes of new legal matters to support P&A’s ever-developing client base and caseload.

“We selected Casepoint because their technology gives our clients and our team an extra edge – it is a powerful eDiscovery solution that allows us to work smarter, faster, and more cost-effectively, providing a direct benefit to our clients,” said Richard R. Volack, a Construction & Infrastructure partner and Chair of P&A’s Cybersecurity and Data Privacy practice. “Our relationship with Casepoint today is largely thanks to our firm’s corporate clients who have repeatedly chosen their technology over the years, making the firm’s switch to Casepoint a natural step.”

Another reason for P&A to select Casepoint eDiscovery was its ease-of-use, speed, and built-in artificial intelligence and advanced analytics features.

“Casepoint offers P&A, and ultimately our clients, superior value with a platform that empowers our attorneys and litigation support teams to perform more efficiently,” said Gary Moorefield, Senior Counsel at P&A. “Casepoint’s integrated artificial intelligence tools, including their CaseAssist Active Learning, have dramatically improved our review experience, without the typical disincentive of added feature costs, reducing our review times and allowing us to focus and develop our case strategy, and to streamline the eDiscovery process. Periodically throughout my career, I have provided feedback to various technology vendors, and rarely have I seen that feedback reflected in subsequent versions of the product. However, with Casepoint, I’ve been able to work closely with their development team, including its COO, and have directly witnessed their commitment to integrate client feedback in the form of feature updates, which directly include responding to some of my own suggestions.”

“Emerging as the winner among 20 different solutions is a testament to the strength of our end-to-end technology,” said Vipul Rajpara, co-founder and Chief Operating Officer at Casepoint. “Peckar & Abramson’s client-focused culture and commitment to excellence is a good fit for us and we look forward to creating substantial efficiencies and helping them provide better outcomes for their clients through our highly customizable platform and dependable services.”

Now in its twelfth year, Casepoint offers fast, enterprise-class tools for full-spectrum eDiscovery, including cloud collections, data processing, early case assessment, advanced analytics, artificial intelligence, full-strength review, and customizable productions. Casepoint supports workflows across millions of documents, multiple terabytes of data, thousands of legal matters, and an unlimited number of users.

What does Artificial Intelligence for eDiscovery look like?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Advanced Analytics are an integral part of modern eDiscovery. By utilizing these tools proactively and productively, users can solve many day-to-day problems in less time, while also improving their organization’s bottom line. AI simply reduces the time it takes to complete tasks, which assists lawyers in doing their jobs more efficiently. Employing AI gives lawyers more time to focus on higher-level objectives, such as case strategizing.

CaseAssist is the name of Casepoint’s Advanced Analytics feature set. All of the features in CaseAssist are automatically turned on to assist legal teams in identifying and prioritizing key documents quickly during the review process. The features of CaseAssist include three main sets: Data Story Builder, CaseAssist Active Learning (CAL), and Iterative TAR (TAR 1.0). 

 

CaseAssist’s AI algorithms accelerate the eDiscovery process by locating crucial documents and aiding in business decision-making and case direction. CaseAssist can save your firm time and money by not only increasing efficiency and accuracy, but it is also available at no additional cost and is available for every matter.

AI and advanced analytics have gone from being “nice-to-have” to a business and legal necessity. To follow Casepoint’s Artificial Intelligence-driven initiatives, visit our dedicated AI page.

Optimizing Legal with Artificial Intelligence: AI is Altering the Way the Legal Industry Operates

From Luxury to Necessity, AI is Altering the Way the Legal Industry Operates 

Utilizing Artificial Intelligence is an upward trend in businesses and legal operations alike. AI-powered software is seeping into everyday workflows and the results are extraordinary. Those at the top of organizations and firms are seeing increases in efficiency and accuracy, while simultaneously lowering costs for clients. By welcoming AI and wielding it proactively and productively, users can solve many day-to-day problems in less time, while also improving their organization’s bottom line. 

AI is Here to Help Lawyers – Not Replace Them

In a 2019 Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning ILTA Survey, made up of the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) members and legal professionals, 55% of respondents predict that only 0-10% of work done by attorneys is replaced by AI in the next 5 years. Artificial Intelligence cannot replace lawyers; the need for a lawyer’s services is indispensable. AI simply reduces the time it takes to complete tasks, which assists lawyers in doing their jobs more efficiently and gives them more time to focus on higher-level objectives. 

Why Should Lawyers Use AI? Why is it Important to Apply this Technology?

The same 2019 ILTA Survey noted that ”understanding the need for tools” is the biggest challenge for advancing the adoption of AI in the majority of respondents’ organizations. This is a significant statistic – organizations are unaware of the ways that AI can help them. Implementing AI-powered legal software increases efficiency and accuracy tenfold. Small tasks can take a fraction of the time to complete. Casepoint’s CaseAssist Active Learning (CAL), as one example, allows you to avoid manually reviewing documents that are near certain to be non-relevant, saving potentially thousands or even millions of dollars in review time. What may have previously taken 3 attorneys 450 hours to review, can now be done in 40 hours or less. By saving this time, attorneys are able to focus on higher-value work beyond reviewing, such as case strategy. Artificial Intelligence that is included in the DNA of legal software can benefit an organization by performing tasks quicker and generating valuable metrics in the process. If anything, lawyers are praised for saving time and money.

How are organizations implementing AI in their organizations?

A whopping 90% of the ILTA survey respondents said they are purchasing legal technology tools or customizing existing tools rather than developing them in-house themselves. This speaks volumes about how many firms and organizations have found that working with a third-party vendor or service provider has proven to be the best option. These organizations have done the research – it takes a lot of resources, time, and energy to maintain an in-house solution compared to working with a strategic partner who can do the heavy lifting for you. 36% of the same ILTA survey respondents also stated that multiple departments are utilizing AI-powered software, rather than simply one department. This demonstrates that technology solutions can create efficiencies across multiple departments, not just one.

Conclusion

AI is powerful and useful, and it will only continue to be more pervasive in business and in the legal industry. These tools have gone from being “nice-to-have” to a business and legal necessity. Take a look at this brochure for more information on how AI and advanced analytics in your legal software make an impactful difference.

COVID-19 Has Brought Unprecedented Upheaval to eDiscovery Industry [Law.com]

The economic and court-related slowdowns brought on by the coronavirus pandemic have led to e-discovery workforce cuts, business operations changes, and more. But some changes brought by the shift to remote work have had unintended benefits.

The legal world has certainly not been immune to these changes. A number of law firms and legal-related businesses have joined the rest of the economy in pay cuts, hiring freezes and layoffs. One would expect that these changes will still be flooding in over the next couple of weeks as well…

Haresh Bhungalia, CEO at Casepoint, said his company has not experienced layoffs or furloughs, but Casepoint has slowed down on hiring “a tiny bit.” With the current state of remote work, he explained, simply bringing on new talent has become complex.

Not Printing and Better For It

This blog post is written during week #4 of pervasive social distancing due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Forced Change

Across the globe people are working from home and relying on SaaS technologies to keep working. This has raised a number of challenges, of course, but we have already noticed a number of “new normal” trends that have been developing.

Going Paperless

One of the new normal trends is that legal teams are no longer choosing to print everything in their eDiscovery workflow. Print a production QC set? Nope….I’ll just review online (frankly it is easier). Print binders? Actually, no thanks, I have an iPad app that works just fine for that. Print documents for future reference? Well, I could…but since my home printer is not as powerful as the one at work, I finally learned how to create reference sets (personal folders in Casepoint) that make it very easy to organize and pull up important documents. Print deposition kits? While many of my depositions have been postponed, I now know how to access the documents via my iPad or laptop through the Casepoint eDiscovery website…so I guess I really don’t have to print.

And this is a pretty big change. For an industry with “e” in its name, eDiscovery has often been weighed down by a heavy amount of printing. But working from home has steered the industry toward more efficient use of technology…and that includes going paperless for eDiscovery workflows. Some thought the day may never come, but here we are.

Law Firms Aren’t Just for Lawyers: One Woman’s Journey in Legal Operations and Legal Project Management

Law firms aren’t just for lawyers. When I think about the career trajectory I have followed over the past 17+ years, this simple statement epitomizes what I have learned and demonstrated repeatedly as a professional in a variety of roles. It’s also what energizes me as a manager of complex projects and an industry trailblazer in the project management operations (PMO) domain.

Announcing the End of TIFF-based Productions

Tysons, VA — April 1, 2020 — Casepoint, a leader in enterprise eDiscovery technology, today announced the eDiscovery industry has crossed a major milestone: The very last TIFF-based production in response to a discovery document request was produced at 5:23 a.m. EDT. The production consisted of 600 pages of TIFF images (with no redactions) for ACME Corporation v. Wiley, Inc. Apparently, neither party in the matter actually specified a form of production, so the plaintiff got what they asked for.

The Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) was invented in 1986 as a standard image format for scanner hardware manufacturers. Since that time, the litigation support and eDiscovery industry has tolerated TIFF-based productions for reasons that many will explain at great length, as is the preference for veterans in the industry. While many have wondered why eDiscovery practitioners cannot simply use PDFs like everyone else in the world, many others have taken comfort in the explanation “just because.”

Experts in the field are both lamenting and celebrating the demise of TIFF-based productions. “I don’t know…there was something oddly wonderful about using technology invented 30+ years ago as a mainstay in our industry,” said David Carns, Chief Revenue Officer at Casepoint. “With so many cutting-edge technologies in eDiscovery, it felt good knowing we were keeping that candle burning.”

Others were not so kind. Vishal Rajpara, Chief Technology Officer at Casepoint said, “I am glad this day finally came to pass. Don’t get me wrong, Casepoint’s technology platform will continue to support TIFFs for legacy cases forever—since apparently TIFFs will never actually go away—but I’ve been trying to explain the benefits of native productions for the past 10 years.”

This major milestone will no doubt be “clawed back” in less than 24 hours, and we will all go back to producing and receiving TIFF-based productions on a regular basis, but at least it will be in keeping with so many other good intentions in the industry.

Disclaimer: We are all reading about the truly serious situation in the world, but we hope this moment of levity was enjoyed as a momentary distraction – maybe with a smile or at least an eye-roll. Happy April Fool’s Day.
