Quest launches e-Discovery Manager

Quest Software is planning to release Quest e-Discovery Manager that is used for internal, legal, regulatory investigations and complements exchange server 2010.

By CBR Staff Writer

e-Discovery helps IT, HR, records managers and legal investigators scope, collect, review and export electronically stored information (ESI) in house, without outsourcing to third-party legal consultants. The product is expected to be launched in the third quarter of 2009.

With its tagging, filtering, search and project management capabilities, e-Discovery enables companies to address legal, regulatory and internal investigations when reducing cost and complexity of searching for, collecting and processing data.

e-Discovery, aligned with the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM), collects data using single interface from online production Exchange servers, offline Exchange database (EDB) files and Quest Archive Manager, allowing scattered information in multiple silos to be gathered through one central platform.

e-Discovery Manager with Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 provides a platform supporting evidence collection across mixed environments of Exchange Server 2003, 2007, 2010 and offline EDBs as well. It integrates with Quest Archive Manager for discovery of e-mail, instant messaging and BlackBerry communications that are of a single interface.

Mike Osterman, founder of Osterman Research, said: “Implementing an appropriate e-Discovery capability is critical to the long-term viability of any organization, particularly for larger ones facing a greater chance of being involved in civil litigation. e-Discovery best practices include several key elements, starting with management recognition of the need to be ready for it, developing a set of corporate policies for archiving and compliance, and implementing the right technologies to manage corporate data properly.”
