CloudNine, a leader in simplifying and automating data and legal discovery for litigation, investigations, and audits, just announced the release of Targeted Preservation and Collection from CloudNine, an integrated and automated data discovery feature of the CloudNine eDiscovery Platform. This cloud-based capability simplifies and automates data preservation and collection for corporate legal and IT professionals and is available immediately at no incremental cost as part of the CloudNine eDiscovery Platform.
“With the accelerating volume, variety, and velocity of electronically stored information (ESI), legal and IT professionals now more than ever require tools that can help streamline the complex eDiscovery phases of data preservation and collection,” shared Bill David, Chief Technology Officer of CloudNine. “With Targeted Preservation and Collection from CloudNine, users can now quickly detect, identify, locate, and collect ESI and have it automatically ingested and processed within a cloud-based, full-featured eDiscovery platform. This fully integrated capability short-circuits a previously laborious workflow typically done with multiple tools requiring multiple levels of human interaction and truly simplifies and automates preservation and collection.”
“Collection of ESI continues to be an extremely challenging phase of eDiscovery as it involves a need for direct data interaction coupled with the necessity of securely collecting and ultimately moving collected ESI into an eDiscovery platform for further evaluation,” highlighted Doug Austin, Vice President of Products and Services at CloudNine. “By automating the tedious and time-consuming tasks of finding and consolidating files and folders before collection and then automating the collection, ingestion, and processing phases of eDiscovery, CloudNine immediately and positively increases the effectiveness and economics of preservation and collection while removing risks associated with multiple instances of human intervention. Our customers have always asked for help in automating these critical first steps in the eDiscovery process, and we are delighted to be able to deliver them a targeted capability that can streamline their eDiscovery efforts, reduce their risk, and shorten the time to review in support of litigation, investigations, and audits.”
An Eight-Step Wizard Guided Selection Process
Available at no incremental cost as part of the CloudNine eDiscovery Platform, the automated preservation and collection capability is accomplished through an eight-step, wizard-driven selection process that includes:
1. A secure login to the CloudNine eDiscovery Platform
2. The selection of the files and folders to be collected (scanning of local drives or specific folders)
3. The selection of a processing option (host with CloudNine, host with Relativity, build early data analysis report, or automatically create a load file for a third-party eDiscovery platform)
4. The selection of the project for the collected data to be added to (creation of a new project or loading into an existing project)
5. The selection of the timezone for the collection
6. The naming of the collection (custodian, location, etc.)
7. The secure upload of the collection (compression and uploading)
8. The upload confirmation for the completion of processing for analytics and review
Upon completion of the preservation and collection process, users are automatically and immediately ready to begin using the analytics and review capabilities as determined by their processing option selection (CloudNine, Relativity, or Load File for export to additional platforms).
