Since receiving increased private equity investment in 2017, e-discovery company Ipro has focused on moving increasingly left on the EDRM. First, it was the acquisition of information governance company NetGovern last July. Now, it has set its sights on legal holds and analytics, acquiring fellow e-discovery company ZyLAB.

The Amsterdam-based ZyLAB is known for its data science technology through its ZyLAB ONE e-discovery platform and ZyLAB Legal Hold products. Featuring a strong in-house analytics team with data science professor and longtime ZyLAB employee Johannes (Jan) Scholtes, the company has also increasingly moved into the SaaS and cloud offerings space in recent years.
