Also commenting on the agreement, Nuix CEO Rod Vawdrey said Topos would help strengthen Nuix’s product offering.

“The potential for user-friendly dashboards and for users to easily customise the software to their specific needs also reflects Nuix’sfocus on empowering our customers to search through unstructured data at speed and scale,” he said.
