DataCert, Inc., the leading global provider of legal operations management solutions, announced today that its hosted solutions provide clients end-to-end security and data privacy protection, critical requirements particularly when deploying legal operations management solutions in Europe. DataCert, which entered the European market in 2005, has seen its business there grow almost 900% since then, including a number of new deals signed in 2009.
Supporting DataCert's efforts to provide its growing European client base with solutions that meet their unique regulatory requirements, Savvis, Inc., DataCert's software hosting provider, has become certified by the Safe Harbor program as adhering to the stringent European Union (EU) data privacy laws. This enables DataCert, which has been certified since 2005, to deliver comprehensive Safe Harbor-certified hosted solutions that provide global corporate legal departments with end-to-end data privacy protection with regard to data transfers between the EU and the United States. In addition to being Safe Harbor certified, both DataCert and Savvis are SAS 70 Type II audited, providing clients end-to-end security assurance.
DataCert, Inc. reports strong 2009 financial performance, with revenue growth for the eleventh consecutive year. A substantial increase in bookings resulting from almost $12 million in new sales orders, including significant growth in its EMEA business, drove an over 20 percent revenue increase for the company. DataCert achieved these results while investing 30 percent of revenue back into its products and services, expanding its presence in Europe by opening its fourth office there in Zurich, and completing the acquisition of a software development, customer support, and professional services center for the legal market from Symcon Global Technologies (SGT), its former partner in Chennai, India.
