ONSITE3 Launches Intelligent Collections Service for eDiscovery, Expands Partnership With Deepdive Technologies

New Service Automates Collection of Active Data From Network Systems

ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwire - January 17, 2008) - ONSITE3™, a global provider of litigation support and electronic evidence solutions for law firms and corporations, and Deepdive Technologies®, a leading provider of automated electronic data discovery solutions, today announced an expanded partnership in conjunction with the availability of ONSITE3's new Intelligent Collections™ service. Powered by Deepdive Technologies, the new service facilitates electronic discovery by automating the collection of electronically stored information from active network systems.

"ONSITE3's new Intelligent Collections service demonstrates our dedication to providing clients with the best eDiscovery tools and technologies available from across the industry," said Robert Ballou, chief executive officer, ONSITE3. "When combined with our traditional forensic collection services for near-line and offline data sources, ONSITE3 can provide clients with one of the fastest, most complete, and lowest cost data collection solutions available in the industry."

"ONSITE3's Electronic Evidence Labs (EELabs) routinely handles very large and complex collections requirements and is well regarded in the industry for its expertise, forensically sound methods, and customizable solutions," said Jeffery Fehrman, President of EELabs, a division of ONSITE3. "We are very pleased to expand our partnership with Deepdive Technologies by integrating their latest technology into our family of industry-leading data collection services."

"Eighteen months ago, Deepdive undertook a mission to improve and automate the electronic discovery collection process over traditional methods," said Bob Erickson, chief technology officer, Deepdive Technologies. "The resulting data collection technology is available in a portable, network-attached appliance platform which includes a hot-swappable hard drive to make the transfer of collected data easier and more secure."

ONSITE3's Intelligent Collections service is non-intrusive, meaning that it will not disrupt business operations and requires only minimal involvement from IT personnel. To minimize costs, the service utilizes filtering and de-duplication to narrow the universe of potentially responsive and relevant documents. Content can be filtered by file type, dates, and various other parameters including de-duplication based on the SHA-1 algorithm designed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. ONSITE3's service can also filter content by file signatures, enabling clients to remove irrelevant files based on digital signatures from the National Software Reference Library ( The resulting data collections can be completed much more efficiently than with traditional methods offered by other eDiscovery and computer forensic providers.

ONSITE3 also previously announced a Data Cataloging service that combines an eDiscovery appliance from Deepdive Technologies with expert analysis from ONSITE3's Consulting Practice Group. ONSITE3's Data Cataloging service delivers detailed analysis of the locations and types of electronically stored information residing on a client's active network and local systems. Legal and IT teams can use this analysis to better manage the associated costs and risks of eDiscovery while preparing their organizations for the litigation process.
