FTI Consulting Launches Ringtail® Version 8.3
Secure, Self-Serve Private Cloud Deployment Option and Improved Review Workflow Provide Corporations and Law Firms with Faster Document Review and Reduced IT Costs
"Corporate adoption of cloud applications is gaining acceptance, but many legal clients still prefer to keep their legal data behind their own firewalls with on premises products. In addition, there's a vast disparity in the e-discovery capacities of law firms and corporate legal departments," said
The Advantages of the Cloud, Built for E-Discovery
Ringtail provides a complete e-discovery solution that combines case management and document review in a single platform. This includes innovative data analytics and visual review tools that dramatically increase the productivity and efficiency of legal review. In total, Ringtail is a powerful e-discovery platform with flexible deployment options and market-leading functionality designed to increase reviewer productivity and reduce the overall costs of e-discovery.
Ringtail SaaS provides users with:
- Fast deployment: Delivered to law firms and corporations via a Web browser, legal teams can begin using the software immediately with no hardware to install.
- Easy administration: The intuitive functionality in Ringtail simplifies case creation, user management, and reporting.
- Security: To address the security and legal concerns that are inherent in cloud computing, each SaaS client is assigned a private, logically separated environment called a Ringtail POD. Each Ringtail POD resides in a secure datacenter and is fully managed by the FTI Technology team.
- Data privacy: All datacenter services and storage remain under the control of FTI Technology so Ringtail SaaS clients can confidently safeguard client data and adhere to data privacy regulations.
- Reduced hardware spend: Ringtail SaaS eliminates the capital expenditures associated with procuring, installing and managing rapidly depreciating hardware. It also removes the hidden costs associated with troubleshooting server and storage issues. FTI Technology provides elastic computing resources and manages services to help legal teams handle any-sized matter.
- Seamless upgrades: Ringtail's SaaS deployment model provides legal teams with optimal performance. Upgrades are delivered as new software versions are released, ensuring that clients always have access to the latest version of Ringtail.
"We've worked closely with our clients to build a solution that delivers the promised efficiency and savings of cloud computing, but meets the unique legal requirements of e-discovery," said
