Casepoint has partnered with the SEC to achieve FedRAMP readiness in multi-year cloud program for the Commission
TYSON, VA, March 2, 2020 – Casepoint is pleased to announce that its end-to-end eDiscovery solution, Casepoint Government, has achieved the “In Process” designation with the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP). Casepoint Government will be used exclusively as part of our partnership with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on a new eDiscovery cloud pilot project.
FedRAMP is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. The program applies a “do once, use many times” framework that reduces the cost, time, and staff required to conduct redundant agency security assessments. The FedRAMP program enables agencies to securely move to cloud-based solutions as part of the Chief Information Officers (CIO) Council’s Cloud Smart strategy.
“Our ‘In Process’ status underscores Casepoint’s commitment to obtaining FedRAMP authorization in 2020, and is a critical aspect of a successful eDiscovery cloud pilot with the SEC,” said Amy Hilbert, Vice President Public Sector. “We have seen time and again that government agencies are looking for innovative alternative approaches to meeting their eDiscovery requirements. Casepoint is pleased to be that alternative with our robust and secure cloud-based eDiscovery solution for government agencies.”
Security in eDiscovery is a particular concern for federal agencies, given the sensitivity of government data and strict requirements for data integrity and defensibility. Many federal, state, and local government offices already use eDiscovery technology from Casepoint, which is committed to maintaining the highest levels of security at the company, data center, and web application levels. Casepoint already maintains SOC 1 Type II and SOC 2 Type II certifications for both the company and its data center, and achieving full FedRAMP compliance is the natural next step in the company’s exponentially growing public sector strategy.
Casepoint Government, based on 12 years of innovation in the industry and broad experience in the public sector, provides agencies with a scalable, secure, and customizable computing environment. The eDiscovery suite features cloud collections, data processing, advanced analytics, artificial intelligence, review, and productions – all in a single easy-to-use web interface. Casepoint Government is designed to meet the government’s strictest security requirements while providing 100% US-based hosting, support, and services.
