Eleventh Hour – www.eleventhhour.co – a provider of litigation support and ediscovery solutions to law firms and corporate law departments, today announces the company now has the availability to offer social discovery to law firms and corporate clients across the nation.
Social media is being utilized more and more by businesses as they develop their brand and connect with customers. “Social media is now a very common source of evidence in criminal and civil litigation and must be routinely addressed in discovery,” stated Alice Burns, managing director of Eleventh Hour. “With the evolving role of the Internet, it is more important than ever to stay on top of the technology that is available so e-discovery projects can effectively scope all aspects of information that is available.”
In 2010, Facebook surpassed Google in terms of web metrics, with over 700 million users as of last month. Twitter and LinkedIn continue to grow. As a result, there is a necessity for social media discovery in many cases, just as there is a need to collect emails and office related files. For this reason, Eleventh Hour has acquired X1 Social Discovery (www.x1discovery.com) to provide Eleventh Hour clients with a powerful platform to collect, authenticate, search, review and produce electronically stored information (ESI) from popular social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
X1 Social Discovery is designed to effectively address social media content from the leading social media networking sites. In addition, it can capture and instantly search content from any website. Unlike archiving and image capture solutions, X1 Social Discovery provides for a matter-centric workflow from search and collection through production in searchable native format, while preserving critical metadata not possible through image capture, printouts, or raw data archival of RSS feeds.
“We are pleased that Eleventh Hour has chosen X1 Social Discovery as its go-to solution for social media e-discovery, and we welcome the firm to the growing number of service providers that have adopted this technology,” stated Skip Lindsey, EVP of Sales & Business Development at X1 Discovery. Lindsey continues, “The evolution of use of social media by businesses and individuals means that this should seriously be considered in every litigation.”
Eleventh Hour assists law firms and corporate clients with e-discovery management – planning for and managing offensive and defensive discovery efforts. For early case assessment and social media analysis, Eleventh Hour uses leading legal technology to deliver effective discovery workflow and information governance solutions that make a difference. Burns stated, “We use technologies such as X1 Social Discovery to help our clients see the whole data environment, and to fully examine important and tangential data nexus points and relations. Technologies such as X1 Social Discovery give Eleventh Hour the tools to effectively assist our clients in seeing what is and is not there.”
