Becoming the Legal Platform Every Company Needs

Created on March 3, 2021


Founder and CEO

The following is the second post in a new blog series from Exterro CEO Bobby Balachandran, where he shares his thoughts on the issues legal leaders care about and his vision for addressing them. More than a decade ago, I (along with many others) noticed that most businesses and individual business units had an array of software options designed specifically to help them manage tasks and do their jobs more effectively and efficiently.But not the legal department. Providers like Peoplesoft offered HR departments the ability to manage employee information, benefits, and even... Read More

Founder and CEO

The following is the first post in a new blog series from Exterro CEO Bobby Balachandran, which will cover the challenges and solutions to issues that legal leaders care about. What a difference 10 years makes! Who could have predicted in 2011 that organizations today would be facing such an unprecedented degree of legal and regulatory scrutiny? Piled on top of that is the ever-increasing danger from ingenious and unpredictable cyber security risks. This perfect storm of data risk has prompted businesses to look more intensely at ways to address these challenges... Read More

Delivering True Integrated Defensible Processes for Legal, Privacy and Compliance

Founder and CEO

We here at Exterro have been on a mission to stay ahead of the rapidly changing industry. Today’s legal, law enforcement, privacy and compliance leaders must balance a broad set of business, data, and operational requirements, changing regulations and exponential risks. Meeting and overcoming these challenges demands highly-integrated, automated intelligent processes. Exterro realized that its customers could no longer be effective with a portfolio of siloed toolsets. So we set about to assemble the ultimate Legal GRC platform. In the same way that other key business functions have an integrated application platform... Read More

CCPA...The Most Significant Impact on Litigation Since FRCP

Created on July 8, 2019


Founder and CEO

I have a simple question for all the GCs, CPOs, and CISOs out there: Are you ready for the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)? Because it’s coming, whether you’re ready or not, on January 1, 2020. (And ten other states will soon follow suit with similar, but different, regulations.) Depending on the timing, polling group, and survey methodology, reports suggest somewhere between 45% and 86% of companies will not be ready or do not even plan to be ready by then. If you ask me, those figures are probably optimistic. I suspect that... Read More

The Next Stage of Growth for Exterro

Created on June 14, 2019


Founder and CEO

Just over a year ago, Exterro announced the exciting news of our partnership with Leeds Equity Partners and the strategic equity investment that would turbo charge Exterro’s growth and innovation at a moment I believe is a true tipping point for the e-discovery industry. We—and I mean not just the e-discovery industry, but “we” as an international economy and even as a society—are facing large-scale, structural change in how we interact with our data: how we secure it, use it, access it, and dispose of it. I want Exterro to be one... Read More
