Bit-level Indexing and Preservation of Electronic Data Ensures Reliability and Defensibility

HOLMDEL, NJ — January 30, 2012 — At LegalTech New York today, Index Engines launches Octane Forensic Archive for Litigation Hold, a new addition to its already robust information management product line for compliance and litigation. The new Forensic Archive indexes MS Exchange and IBM Lotus Notes emails, allowing for full content and metadata culling. Once the relevant set of email or custodian mailboxes are defined the culled content will be preserved at a bit level in the archive. This approach does not require that email be converted to .eml or .msg formats for preservation, only the appropriate culled bits will be extracted into an archive as a forensic image of the original content. Octane is the only platform on the market that provides forensic-level culling and archiving of email databases, ensuring accuracy and defensibility when collecting and archiving sensitive corporate records during litigation hold.


The new Octane Forensic Archive can preserve ESI from all sources including online networks, email servers, forensic images and backup tapes. No other platform can access and identify a broad number of sources of ESI and now cull and preserve content in a forensically viable format. The Forensic Archive includes full search and discovery for unstructured data and email. Content can be managed according to policies and placed on legal hold for a specified retention period. Automated collection, based on a specified schedule, can be performed based on policy, ensuring that compliance and information governance requirements are satisfied.


“The new Octane Forensic Archive for Litigation Hold clearly shows Index Engines’ dedication to providing solutions for cost effective, secure collecting and preserving ESI,” said Jim McGann, VP of Information Discovery at Index Engines. ”Index Engines unique ability to have detailed, bit-level knowledge of email databases allows us to introduce this new breakthrough in forensically sound email collection.”
