Full life-cycle support for litigation, investigations, and hearings.

EDT integrates the case management functions that regulators and prosecutors need, alongside traditional e-discovery and disclosure workflows such as data processing, analysis, review, production, and presentation in court.

It delivers all the features clients need to run every case, end-to-end, from a single repository, without any data movements, delivering increased efficiency and reducing complexity and risk.

Software as a Service

Clients have complete control in their own dedicated, single tenancy site, in their choice of Amazon Web Services cloud locations, globally. 

Control and Security

Deployments are dedicated, not multi-tenanted, so client data cannot become co-mingled, delivering both security, and control.

Turnkey Solution

EDT is delivered via Amazon Web Services cloud infrastructure and is charged as a simple, monthly, pay-as-you-go fee.

EDT delivers full control for clients who want an entirely self-service model. Including the flexibility to do their own user and permission management, processing, culling, review batching, and productions.

Data Residency & Protection

EDT can be deployed in over 40 countries, so clients can choose the data residency location that will best serve their requirements. Robust technical, architectural, and legal mechanisms are used to protect data and mitigate the risks of cross-border transfers or foreign data requests.

Elastic Infrastructure

There is no software or hardware to buy, support, or maintain and clients benefit from elastic infrastructure that expands and contracts storage and processing resources to suit fluctuating usage demands.

Monitoring is tuned to adjust infrastructure to user activity trends and to anticipate future needs. This ensures reliability, redundancy, and optimal performance.  

Hassle-free

EDT's team of solution architects and certified AWS experts maintain the environment for clients, so they avoid the hassle of running back-end infrastructure. That mitigates their risk, ensures 24*7 availability and frees clients up to focus on their core business.
