iCONECT Announces Protected Trust as a Cloud Partner


Reston, VA, December xx, 2013 – iCONECT Development, LLC, technology leaders who reach beyond the status quo with an intuitive and flexible document review platform that works the way you think, is pleased to announce their recent partnership with Protected Trust®, a provider of advanced security and privacy services to manage and protect sensitive data.   With the recent addition of the Cloud as an implementation option of the XERA Review Platform, iCONECT has expanded its client services by developing a network of vetted Infrastructure As A Service (IAAS) partners, and is excited to announce Protected Trust as one of their first Cloud partners.

“We’ve heard from several of our clients that outsourcing their infrastructure management is a solid alternative to managing the infrastructure in-house,” says Iram Arras, iCONECT’s Vice President of Product Strategy.  “The difficulty is finding a partner with excellent cloud services who also understands the eDiscovery business, and has the infrastructure and knowledge to host an iCONECT XERA system.”

Protected Trust recognizes the overall need for privacy and security in business communications that is driving the demand for customized, secure, communication capabilities.  Their comprehensive services include private dedicated cloud servers, server colocation, private data suites, Exchange email hosting, email archiving, email encryption services, disaster recovery and enterprise mobility.   Protected Trust has many privacy and security credentials, including SAS-70, SSAE 16 certification and SOC 1 & 2, and is fully HIPAA compliant with controls in place for the data center and all managed services.

“This is a perfect alternative for corporations and law firms who want to run litigation support review without the headaches commonly associated with running in-house hardware and resources,” says David Bailey, Vice President of Protected Trust.  “We’ve worked closely with the iCONECT engineering team to ensure that the combination of our infrastructure with XERA delivers a strong product from both a software and hardware perspective.”

The advantages are many when deploying iCONECT’s XERA document review platform in a cloud environment.  There is no need to upgrade servers, routers, or any physical components, and no need to replace failed hardware, eliminating two major IT cost burdens as well as the potential for continuous budget revisions as deadlines approach.  All systems are designed with expansion and flexibility in mind, giving the ability to scale the resources of XERA to accommodate changing business needs.
