Efficient SharePoint ESI Collection and Preservation Highlights Index Engines’ 5.1 eDiscovery Release at LegalTech New York
Index Engines’ Octane 5.1 release provides in-place indexing and selective preservation of SharePoint, support for Exchange 2013 and a streamlined processing and culling experience
HOLMDEL, NJ (Feb. 4, 2014) - Time and access to data for eDiscovery accelerated with Index Engines’ 5.1 release Tuesday at LegalTech New York, providing litigation support professionals direct indexing of SharePoint for selective culling and collection and also providing support for Exchange 2013.
Previously, SharePoint extraction was an arduous process that can require the need to copy the data to disk before indexing. Much like Index Engines’ ability to bypass backup tape restoration with direct indexing, the 10-year-old information management company can directly index SharePoint data in place, perform comprehensive ESI search, and selectively extract and preserve data.
“Identifying, culling and preserving data in SharePoint has been an expensive and time-consuming process due to the volume of data and complexity of the environment,” Index Engines Vice President Jim McGann said. “Now with this new release, Index Engines delivers the fastest and most efficient access to ESI across the widest range of sources, accelerating responsiveness and controlling costs associated with SharePoint collections."
SharePoint sites can be auto discovered and indexed using Index Engines’ industry leading processing speed. Data within SharePoint is indexed in place and no copy of the content is required for processing. Once data is indexed it can be reported, analyzed, queried and defensibly accessed and preserved.
Beyond ESI identification and collection, the 5.1 SharePoint option supports the discovery of document versions providing a historical view into documents resulting in a more comprehensive search.
In addition to SharePoint support, 5.1 supports the discovery and collection of ESI existing within Exchange 2013. Whether located on networks, servers or backup tapes, Exchange 2013 databases can be discovered and responsive email can be extracted onto legal hold.
“We’re always working to offer additional support options and bring our clients a more defensible, unified platform across the broadest range of content platforms,” McGann said.
Additional features offered in 5.1 include:
- Active Directory Integration: For onsite collections, Active Directory integration allows for more intelligence by identifying document owners and permissions for files and email.
- Customizable Dashboard: Dashboards contain up to six pre-defined reports and refresh based on a defined schedule to provide a single view into reports.
- Search Relativity DOC IDs: Search for Relativity IDs and insure that when re-extracting a document that it is the same file extracted the first time.- Streamlined GUI: Streamline the workflow and usability of the interface making searching and managing data more intuitive.
