Cost and time-effective data requests
Avoid the costs of overtime pay, data restoration, negative press and more with Index Engines’ Catalyst. Catalyst leverages offline backup tapes, which are an historical snapshot of all important data, to satisfy even the most complex request During this streamlined process. Catalyst indexes a complete backup set (physical tape or disk) or forensic image, providing the organization with searchable access to the file and email data, creating a thorough index of what exists, where it is located, who owns it, when it was last accessed and what key terms are in it.
This process allows instant access to enterprise data assets, providing comprehensive searches to locate responsive content including: mailboxes by date range and owner, keyword-based searches, document locations by data and more. For example, if a fiscal report from 2006 would have been created by a certain comptroller in January of 2007 on a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, the owner, time frame and file type can be searched for, located and retrieved.
Using indexed metadata and keyword searches to respond to FOIA requests of aged, hard to find or ‘lost’ data simplifies processes, reduces labor costs and expedites the process of information requests.
- Software Only Deployment - Index Engines delivers the software application and suggested servers. This allows organizations to implement their own hardware for convienence and speed of deployment.
- Virtual Deployment - When convenience and rapid, virtual deployment is what you’re looking for, get Catalyst on VMware. This option takes advantage of VMware and supports data centers that supply the secure, virtual environment.
- Cloud - Cloud deployment allows for full access to the Catalyst platform, but with no deployment of the technology onsite. Index Engines’ secure cloud lab processes a complete set of backup tapes or disk and trains the organization on how to use the search interface remotely. Optionally, the data that is processed can be loaded on a Catalyst
