Catalyst Acquires TotalDiscovery
Catalyst has purchased a majority interest in TotalDiscovery, a legal hold and data collection software provider. According to Catalyst, the acquisition will allow it to offer an integrated platform, Insight Discovery, covering the core of the e-discovery process—from legal hold and identification through collection, processing, search, analytics, review and production. The companies say legal departments will be able to manage the entire preservation and discovery process using an integrated platform, providing greater control at lower costs.
TotalDiscovery will continue to service its clients directly and through its reseller network, including options to promote data to a variety of platforms. In addition, TotalDiscovery will offer its features and API to integration partners, resellers, and e-discovery service providers.
TotalDiscovery’s automated, cloud-based legal hold and data preservation technology is used by Fortune 500 and Global 2000 companies and their law firms. Remote data collection options give law departments and their outside counsel visibility and early insight into the preserved information, and enables legal and IT teams to collect data from email, laptops, servers and other enterprise and cloud-based systems in real-time, including HR systems and Microsoft Office 365.
With additional capital and resources through Catalyst, the acquisition is expected to allow TotalDiscovery to accelerate its product development in key areas, including enhanced legal hold features, better search, culling and preservation capabilities, and expanded integration with cloud and corporate systems.
