The Denver-based e-discovery technology and services company Catalyst today announced that it has purchased a majority interest in TotalDiscovery, a company that provides a cloud-based legal hold and data collection platform.

The two companies had long worked closely together as partners. The combination, Catalyst says, will allow it to offer an integrated platform that covers the core of the e-discovery process—from legal hold and identification through collection, processing, search, analytics, review and production.

TotalDiscovery will continue to service its clients directly and through its reseller network, and it will continue to support promotion of data to a variety of e-discovery platforms, the announcement said. In addition, TotalDiscovery will offer its full set of features and API to integration partners, resellers and e-discovery service providers.

Catalyst is funded by FTV Capital. TotalDiscovery was privately owned.
