Infinnium Honored in National Law Journal 2020 Emerging Legal Technologies: Changing the Way Law Firms and Legal Departments Operate

We are true technology partners to our clients, arming them with our game-changing platform to enable them to focus on what matters: executing information governance, benefiting from successfully managing their data, exerting strong control over PII and gaining long term trust of their constituents.

CHANTILLY, Va. (PRWEB) February 03, 2020

Organizations face challenges to identify and organize their data, comply with regulatory requirements, apply policy or process, or optimize its value. Absence of a specifically purposed information governance technology has intensified these challenges for organizations with increased focus and introduction of privacy regulations across the globe.
Infinnium’s 4iG solves this unmet need. 4iG is an advanced, technology platform purposely designed to address ever-expanding data challenges related to information governance, e-discovery, investigations, privacy, and compliance matters. 4iG continuously organizes enterprise data in a single, unified repository where artificial intelligence identifies and categorizes information while helping protect PII and other sensitive information secure.
Harsh Sutaria, Infinnium co-founder and chief success officer shared, “We are honored to be recognized as an emerging technology provider by the National Law Journal, but even more to be true technology partners to our clients, arming them with our game-changing platform to enable them to focus on what matters: executing information governance as a business strategy, benefiting from successfully managing their data, exerting strong control over PII and gaining long term trust of their constituents.”
