Everlaw is proud to announce that it has joined the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN) as an Advanced Technology Partner, Independent Software Vendor. The APN is Amazon’s global community of Partners who leverage AWS to build best-in-class software solutions.
In addition to Partner status, Everlaw has also joined the AWS Public Sector Partner (PSP) Program, which recognizes AWS Partners with cloud-based solutions for government, education, and nonprofit organizations.
Amazon’s AWS Partner designation underscores Everlaw’s commitment to best practices for security, reliability, and operational excellence—a recognition that comes in the midst of the legal industry’s increasingly accelerating shift to cloud-based technology.
Leading the Legal Industry’s Shift to the Cloud
For the legal industry today, moving essential processes like ediscovery to the cloud isn’t a question of if, but when. As the volume of data involved in litigation, investigations, and regulatory response continues to outpace the capabilities of legacy legal tools and as legal professionals seek to bring greater efficacy, security, and innovation to their practice, legal teams are increasingly turning to cloud technology to help meet these needs. Indeed, in a recent industry survey conducted by Everlaw and the legal publication Above the Law, a stunning 95% of respondents agreed that cloud-based processes already are or will soon become the standard for ediscovery.
Cloud-based ediscovery has become inevitable.
Yet despite the consensus that cloud technology is the future of ediscovery, many organizations are still just beginning to make the transition. For those considering moving workflows like ediscovery to the cloud, membership in the APN is a powerful attestation to an organization’s commitment to AWS Well-Architected best practices for building secure, efficient, and high-performing tools.
Empowering and Securing Law’s Digital Transformation
AWS Partners undergo a rigorous review to remediate potential software risks and ensure reliability and operational excellence, a process that includes regular review of software architecture and operations and independent analysis by AWS.
The announcement comes just four months after Everlaw transitioned its FedRAMP Authorized federal software-as-a-service platform to GovCloud (US), making it one of the first cloud-native ediscovery platforms to meet the most stringent US government security requirements.
Combined, Everlaw’s use of AWS GovCloud (US) and its membership in the APN underline its commitment to best-in-class service and safety, so clients can be confident knowing that their information is protected by the highest cloud security standards.
As a result of the work between Everlaw and AWS, it is now even easier for law firms, corporate legal departments, government agencies, and nonprofits to transform their approach to discovery, to positively impact the outcomes of litigation and investigations, and ultimately, to solve some of the most challenging problems in the legal industry.
