AccessData's new Canadian facility will expand its world-class Summation Litigation Support Services (SLSS) business, which is a fully managed legal document processing, hosting, and review service. By adding additional capacity in Canada, AccessData can now offer hosting clients an additional layer of isolation for their companies' sensitive data.
Over the last two years, AccessData's international client base has grown considerably. With that growth, additional requirements to protect and properly manage personally identifiable information (PII), as well as proper adherence to European Union data privacy regulations, have become routine requests. Organizations that have traditionally relied on U.S.-based hosting and litigation services partners are forced to find suitable alternatives since passage of U.S. regulation, such as the "Patriot Act."
"Client data privacy is paramount in our commitment in doing business with our international clientele. Introducing hosting capacity in Canada affords an additional layer of protection and security when dealing with PII and privacy rules," said Tim Leehealey, CEO of AccessData.
By choosing Verizon Canada, a facility provider with global reach and significant technical expertise, AccessData offers its customers the ability to host data almost anywhere on the globe with minimal lead time.
