Cornerstone Technologies, a Subsidiary of Sonasoft, Partners with Exterro to Extend its E-Discovery Services Into Enterprise Market

SAN JOSE, CA, Nov. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE – Sonasoft Corp. (OTCQB: SSFT),  a leader in e-discovery, data archiving, and data migration solutions, announces that through its subsidiary, Cornerstone Technologies, it has formed a strategic partnership with Exterro, a leading e-discovery and legal software company, to provide enhanced e-discovery and data archiving solutions to large and medium-sized enterprise customers.

Exterro is a recognized leader in the e-discovery and legal software market with more than 60 percent of its customer base ranked in the Fortune 500.  Exterro’s Orchestrated E-Discovery Suite unifies both internal and external stakeholders on a central platform while automating and orchestrating all tasks and activities in a coordinated workflow process that reduces the time, cost, and risk of current e-discovery approaches.

Through this partnership, the companies intend to integrate Exterro’s Orchestrated E-Discovery Platform with Sonasoft’s proven archiving solution, SonaVault, which will result in a best-in-class solution for the data archiving and e-discovery requirements of large and medium-sized enterprise customers, as well as, municipalities.

The partnership also provides Sonasoft ability to sell e-discovery services utilizing Exterro’s Orchestrated E-Discovery Suite, which will immediately contribute to top-line revenue in both product and service sales.  Cornerstone Technologies now will be able to manage discovery services to Public Records Access requests along with administrating other critical, time-sensitive discovery searches.  The Company’s in-house Exterro certified experts are also qualified to take full ownership of an Exterro implementation and end-user support.

“This is yet another example of a significant partnership being forged as a direct result of the Cornerstone Technologies acquisition,” states Andy Khanna, CEO of Sonasoft. “First was the Golden Gate Bridge, then the San Jose Sharks, now Exterro. The growth potential here is limitless.”

"We are very excited about the two-way integration of Exterro’s Orchestrated E-Discovery Suite and the SonaVault Archive, which will save our customers significant time and money," said Hal Faden, VP of E-Discovery for Cornerstone Technologies. "SonaVault is a secure, in-place archive and can be implemented on-premise, in the cloud, or as a hybrid.  The SonaVault ‘in-place’ archive is a repository for an organization’s data and contains built-in discovery tools that can help cut cloud-based consumption costs, which result from excessive electronically stored information (ESI).  SonaVault’s discovery tools can narrow down the amount of collected data and then upload it into Exterro’s ESI Vault.  Once this data is uploaded to the Exterro ESI vault, customers and clients alike can take full advantage of Exterro’s rich set of advanced e-discovery document review capabilities to further refine the collected data.  This process allows customers to reduce the data ingested for review by as much as 50 percent, which translates into real cost savings both in terms of cloud storage and discovery review costs.  This is a huge win for our customers!"

Sonasoft engineering will also be developing the API’s to allow Exterro direct access to the SonaVault’s secure in-place archive data during the early case assessment (ECA) phase. This two-way integration of the SonaVault and Exterro clearly distinguishes the combined solution as a market leader in the e-discovery space.

"The combination of Sonasoft and Exterro solutions and Cornerstone Technologies services addresses a fundamental challenge within e-discovery today; namely that it takes too long and costs too much to get to the facts of the matter,” said Bill Piwonka, CMO of Exterro. “We are excited to add the skills and technological prowess Sonasoft and Cornerstone bring to the Orchestrated E-Discovery Partner Program.”

The companies anticipate that this partnership will be the beginning of a long and mutually beneficial relationship. Updates relating to this partnership can be expected as the initiatives continue to progress.

Further updates from the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Cornerstone Technologies, can be expected in the coming weeks.
