PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - March 11, 2015) - Exterro® Inc., the preferred provider of software specifically designed for in-house legal and IT teams at Global 2000 organizations, is proud to announce its membership in the Information Governance Initiative (IGI). As an IGI supporter, Exterro will promote the IGI's mission of advancing information governance (IG) practices and educating organizations on applying business process and legal compliance constructs as a means to take control of exploding data volumes. The cross-disciplinary think-tank is led by industry veterans Bennett Borden, founder and chair of IGI; Barclay Blair, founder and executive director; and Jason Baron, co-chair.

"There is a real lack of clarity and education on how to handle corporate information, who should manage the process and where to even begin," said Borden. "We are committed to moving the industry forward, together, establishing best practices, bridging existing gaps and connecting all of the facets of the IG equation. Having established, leading vendors like Exterro as members is a critical part of our efforts."

"Exterro was established on the principle that information can be managed and optimized with process and technology," said Bill Piwonka, chief marketing officer at Exterro. "The IGI offers a terrific forum that will allow us, as an industry, to bring clarity and establish process for proactively implementing information governance processes for both legal and non-legal purposes. We are excited to be at the forefront of this strategic initiative to help architect a better path forward."
