EMC Helps Customers with E-discovery
Integrated Solution to Help Customers Address Challenges Around Toda' Inefficient and Expensive Legal Discovery Process
EMC Corporation, the world leader in information management and storage, today introduced the EMC eDiscovery Solution, an integrated offering of EMC information and content management software, networked storage and professional services designed to help customers of all sizes better manage the legal discovery process. The solution provides a cost-effective alternative to reactive and time-consuming litigation-response methods, giving customers a proactive model that delivers cost savings, risk reduction and increased responsiveness for current and future litigation events.
The EMC eDiscovery Solution combines EMC professional services with e-mail archiving and content management software and tiered networked storage platforms. The integrated solution enables customers to automate information collection and archiving, avoid a "save-everything" strategy, enforce litigation retention requirements, maintain chain of custody and reduce the universe of documents sent for legal review. As the first information management and storage company to deliver an integrated solution for proactive e-discovery, EMC continues to help customers cost-effectively manage and leverage information as it changes value throughout its lifecycle.
EMC customer MasterCard International has relied on EMC to provide information management and storage solutions that help drive a proactive e-discovery strategy. James Hull, Vice President of Engineering Services, said, "EMC's technology and service offerings have allowed us to implement an enterprise strategy, coherently divided into digestible pieces, to address e-discovery and e-records management challenges at their core – with proactive information management."
Andrew Cohen , EMC's Associate General Counsel and Compliance Practice Lead, said, "e-Discovery affects all enterprise customers, with many spending as much as $1 million or more on e-discovery in a single large investigation or lawsuit. The EMC eDiscovery Solution allows a company to reduce such costs by conducting automated searches and data collections across repositories and to effect litigation holds. The solution helps customers improve the discovery process and help manage content throughout its lifecycle – especially when the value of information peaks during legal discovery requests. With a portfolio that spans specialized professional services, content management, e-mail archiving and purpose-built storage systems, EMC provides a proactive e-discovery solution that delivers infrastructure benefits and value far beyond the lifecycle of a single litigation event."
