ZyLAB launches new version of eDiscovery & Production system

Offers archiving, searching and retrieving capabilities

By CBR Staff Writer

ZyLAB, a provider of e-discovery and information management services, has unveiled a new version of eDiscovery & Production system built to empower IT and legal departments to manage the elements of litigation in-house with automated tools.

The company said that the system offers archiving, searching and retrieving capabilities, plus has the tools to accommodate the interrelationships and contexts of information. It can be integrated with other litigation software and common repositories such as Microsoft SharePoint, databases, as well as ECM, CRM and ERP systems. In addition, it provides authorised reviewers with access via internet browsers and is built around an XML data repository.

The company claims that the system helps accelerate case analysis and document review, as well as enables discovery activities to be automatically performed in-house. It is aligned with Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) phases and focuses on reducing the cost and complexity of e-discovery through the development of standards such as EDRM XML.

According to ZyLAB, the system is based upon the company’s information management platform and includes Records Management & Archiving (RMA) and E-Mail Archiving; and supports 700+ file formats, 400 foreign languages, multiple servers, third-party databases, ECM systems, SharePoint and voice mail. Its legal hold workflow helps to implement and enforce the steps required in a legal hold process.

The system includes legal collection to automatically copy relevant ESI from network drives, shares, computers, laptops, etc. to a litigation hold server. It provides automated document culling, indexing, negotiated Boolean matching, forensic data extraction, automatic document de-duplication, and auto- coding, categorisation and foldering, ZyLAB said.

In addition, the the systems underlying technology helps organisations facilitate early case assessments, test theories, find patterns, and expose hidden connections between people and data, and even uncover hidden information. It can export redacted TIFFs or EDRM XML without altering the original document and offer DVDs or external hard drives loaded with relevant data and the ZyLAB search engine.

Johannes Scholtes, chief strategy officer for ZyLAB, said: “The ZyLAB eDiscovery and Production system significantly reduces overall litigation costs and outside counsel is relieved of the risk of spoliation and related sanctions, unknown liabilities, and premature settlements due to the inconvenience of complex discovery activities.”
