Nuix Discover® for Government has been designated FedRAMP Ready, at the high-security impact level, and is now listed in the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program Marketplace for US federal agencies and government contractors.
Nuix has initiated the FedRAMP authorization process, which can take up to 12 months. Upon authorization, federal agencies will be able to use Nuix Discover for Government to process and store their most sensitive unclassified data.
“We’re excited to have achieved this important milestone on the path to becoming FedRAMP Authorized at the High Impact level and providing a secure and robust cloud eDiscovery and investigation solution for federal agencies,” said Michael Smith, EVP, Americas at Nuix. “As part of our mission of finding truth in a digital world to be a force for good, we look forward to helping our federal government customers conduct their most sensitive and significant investigations using our secure cloud software.”
WHAT IS NUIX DISCOVER® FOR GOVERNMENT?
Nuix Discover for Government combines the world’s leading eDiscovery processing, review, analytics, and predictive coding in one software-as-a-service solution that can be hosted in Nuix’s US government-only cloud environment or an agency’s private cloud. It dramatically improves the speed and quality of early case assessment, investigation, document review, and case management in eDiscovery, investigation, and Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request processes.
As part of the FedRAMP authorization process, Nuix has incorporated world-class end-to-end encryption into Nuix Discover for Government, meeting Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 Security Requirements for Cryptographic Modules.
The FedRAMP High Impact level is required for agencies that handle the government’s most sensitive, unclassified data in cloud computing environments. This includes systems where the loss of confidentiality, integrity, or availability could have a severe or catastrophic adverse effect on organizational operations, organizational assets or individuals.
“This significant investment in cloud security benefits not just our federal government customers but everyone who uses Nuix software as a service,” said Michael Smith.
Perth, Australia – May 11, 2021, Global software company Nuix (www.nuix.com, ASX:NXL) and leading solution provider EDMS Consultants, have announced a new partnership to offer Nuix solutions to the natural resources sector in Western Australia and ASEAN region.
Both companies aim to provide litigation and investigations technology to support the booming natural resources sector which faces increasing regulations, class actions, cybersecurity and privacy issues, internal investigations, and intellectual property disputes.
“Throughout the years we have been in the business, the energy, resources, and utilities sectors are among the most highly regulated industries,” said Peter Buck, Business Development Director of EDMS Consultants. “Now more than ever, operators need full access to their unstructured data or data silos to ensure regulatory compliance.”
He added, “We have worked with PETRONAS, BP, Exxon, PTTEP, and KPOC (PETRONAS/ Shell / ConocoPhillips) on various services throughout the years, and we believe based on experience Nuix has the ideal solution for big organisations with unstructured data”.
The explosion of unstructured data places an increasing burden on large enterprises – especially those in the mining and energy sector that manage very complex projects – to sort through the massive volumes of content they gather, generate and exchange every day. Added to this challenge, the often remote and distributed business model with operations and assets spread over a wide geographical area means that information governance and data access are crucial.
‘’Nuix has a proven history of partnering with large enterprises to solve their messy data challenge,’’ said Jonathan Rees, Nuix Executive Vice President, International. “We have the world’s leading technology for extracting intelligence from high volumes of structured and unstructured data, forged from our experience with regulatory inquiries. Opening new markets and customer segments will continue our growth path and I am excited to partner with EDMS, to drive our combined solution and services, into the wide footprint EDMS has in the natural resources industry.”
Nuix (www.nuix.com, ASX:NXL) creates innovative software that empowers organisations to simply and quickly find the truth from any data in a digital world. We are a passionate and talented team, delighting our customers with software that transforms data into actionable intelligence and helps them overcome the challenges of litigation, investigation, governance, risk, and compliance.
