Casepoint’s unified legal discovery platform is the first cloud-based legal hold and eDiscovery software to reach the Defense Department’s Impact Level 5 Authority to Operate.
The company also signed a multiyear firm fixed-price agreement to provide software-as-a-service eDiscovery technology and support to DOD’s Office of General Counsel.
“DOD OGC had the foresight to pave the way for a secure cloud eDiscovery solution that could be used for sensitive data,” said Amy Hilbert, executive vice president of government solutions at Casepoint. “Casepoint is honored to have the opportunity to work alongside DOD and DISA and provide a highly secure cloud environment to move their eDiscovery to the cloud.”
The DOD IL5 ATO is a security authorization needed for hosting, storing and accessing sensitive information. Casepoint’s cloud eDiscovery platform now provides a Defense Information Systems Agency IL5-compliant cloud environment for DOD with controlled unclassified information.
The Casepoint platform was also the first cloud-based eDiscovery software to achieve
Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program Moderate Authorization.
“DOD elements and services, as well as, other federal departments and agencies with mission critical system needs can now pursue their own instance of Casepoint’s innovative legal discovery platform for their CUI needs with the DISA authorization,” Hilbert said.
Prior to this achievement, DOD had to rely on legacy on-premise applications or leverage cloud-based solutions from other agencies to manage electronically stored information. With Casepoint’s authorized platform, DOD has a secure cloud solution to meet legal hold and eDiscovery requirements.
This will help with deadlines for litigation, investigations, Freedom of Information Act requests and congressional inquiries for the Office of General Counsel and the Defense Legal Services Agency. The platform also uses role-based access, which supports single sign-on and multifactor authentication for secure cross-team collaboration.
And as more agencies move away from on-premise discovery tools, Casepoint’s artificial intelligence technology will help improve DOD’s capacity to oversee litigation and other legal matters.
Going forward, Casepoint plans to offer DOD and other government agencies even more rigorous security by pursuing IL6 authorization.
