Informative Graphics Introduces Redact-It for IBM eDiscovery Manager

Automated, Intelligent Redaction Helps IBM eDiscovery Manager Customers Meet the Challenges of eDiscovery Demands

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - August 24, 2010) -  ILTA Conference -- Informative Graphics Corporation (IGC), a leader in viewing, collaboration and redaction technology, today announced the release of Redact-It® for IBM eDiscovery Manager. IBM's eDiscovery software complements core information management capabilities and provides a strategic, in-house approach to globally address discovery, privacy and retention requirements more efficiently. Tightly integrated with IBM eDiscovery Manager, Redact-It performs automated redaction on documents during the export phase, allowing organizations to process large volumes of documents in-house.

Redact-It automatically applies "Privilege" or "Privacy" scripts and creates a new PDF or TIFF rendition of the redacted file(s), leaving the source file(s) untouched. The redacted rendition contains no hidden text or metadata; the content is completely removed, so there is no risk of inadvertent disclosure through improper redaction. Redact-It also offers the ability to export source files to PDF or TIFF from eDiscovery Manager in addition to IBM's traditional EDRM-XML and Native format options.

Attorney and eDiscovery expert, Tom O'Connor, says, "Effective redaction is an extremely important part of the eDiscovery process. Unfortunately, sometimes people don't understand redaction technology, and they don't buy a good product like Redact-It. They think they are effectively redacting some privileged information, and instead they inadvertently send it to opposing counsel as part of their production. If lawyers have not protected privilege within documents, for which they have a duty to the client, they may be exposing themselves to a malpractice case. Firms must take the steps necessary to protect a case, and that includes proper redaction."

"IBM eDiscovery Manager helps companies do more in-house and control eDiscovery costs. Adding Redact-It is a natural fit to further that goal, bringing automation to this historically time-consuming step in the eDiscovery process and providing significant time savings," said Gary Heath, President and CEO of IGC. "IBM's API for eDiscovery Manager provided us with the ability to create a truly useful and unique integration that really benefits our mutual customers."
