CaseCentral and StoredIQ Announce Strategic eDiscovery Alliance

Provides Enterprises With End-to-End eDiscovery Solution to Streamline Workflow, Reduce Costs and Minimize Risk

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - October 19, 2009) - ACC Annual Meeting -- CaseCentral, the leader in secure, on-demand eDiscovery software for corporate counsel and law firms looking to simplify and take control of eDiscovery, and StoredIQ, a leading provider of Intelligent Information Management and eDiscovery technologies, today announced a strategic partnership to provide an integrated eDiscovery offering that ranges from identification, preservation, collection and processing of electronically stored information (ESI) through analysis, review, production and post-production re-use. The companies will leverage the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) XML standard to seamlessly move ESI from one system to another, which will significantly reduce the cost of eDiscovery processing.

StoredIQ locates, identifies, indexes and classifies unstructured and semi-structured data across the industry's broadest range of storage, email, archiving, content, document and record management systems. StoredIQ provides ongoing active search and analysis, enabling counsel to analyze and target data that is potentially responsive to litigation or investigations across the organization, regardless of where it is physically located. Using StoredIQ's litigation hold policy, organizations can preserve responsive data where it is located or copy the data without changing metadata properties to a retention platform. The potentially responsive data can be further filtered and de-duplicated before being produced in a CaseCentral load file. Additionally, for large volumes of data, StoredIQ supports the ability to perform rolling exports, allowing legal teams to begin work in CaseCentral before all enterprise data has been collected, eliminating the delay between collection and review.

The CaseCentral eDiscovery platform delivers early case assessment (ECA) with close proximity to active review, meaning that no export of data to other tools is required. Clients may rapidly create a new case for active review directly from within the ECA application, increasing consistency and decreasing cost and time. Users can take full advantage of CaseCentral's vast collaborative features, flexible review functionality and reporting metrics as well as a new, simple to use, grid interface and TIFF on Demand. As documents are designated, reviewers can again take advantage of near-duplication, advanced email threading and classification to speed review and ensure consistent document handling -- even comparing related-document tags dynamically to identify documents that may be produced in one case and withheld in another. CaseCentral delivers these benefits with centralized data management and enterprise-class security, reducing the risks typically borne by corporations when they transmit proprietary and confidential data outside the firewall to multiple law firms and service providers.

"CaseCentral uniquely enables clients to bring repeatability, measurability and defensibility to their eDiscovery processes," said Chris Kruse, vice president of business development, CaseCentral. "By partnering with StoredIQ, our customers will be able to create end-to-end, streamlined eDiscovery processes, reducing both cost and risk."

"This partnership combines two proven technologies that span the entire electronic discovery life cycle," said Ursula Talley, vice president of marketing at StoredIQ. "Enterprises reap the benefit of a faster, more efficient discovery process, while ensuring the integrity of data and chain of custody throughout."
