Kroll opens new Irish centre for legal data services

E-discovery and information governance services firm KrollDiscovery has opened a ISO 27001-certified data centre in Ireland in response to growing investigations and other legal matters that require local support and hosting. 

KrollDiscovery says it is now the largest e-discovery provider in Ireland with a dedicated presence in the country.

"We will be able to address many of the challenges organisations in Ireland face today with our latest global data centre opening," said Chris Weiler, CEO of KrollDiscovery. "We have noticed a growing number of international matters that require organisations to collect, analyse and produce electronic documents in a timely and cost-effective manner in-country. Our experience with high-profile, high-stakes investigations and litigation will be a significant asset to these organisations."

He said: "We know that it is important to our clients to be able to process and host data in-country in response to stringent data protection laws, and the new data centre will give organisations more control over their data."

In addition to Ireland, KrollDiscovery operates data centres in the UK, Germany, France, Japan and the US.‎ The global Kroll Ontrack group provides data recovery, email extraction and restoration, data destruction and tape management services.
