CaseCentral Selected as "2009 Trend-Setting Product" by KMWorld Magazine

Cloud Computing eDiscovery Software Visionary Leads Industry With First Integrated eDiscovery Platform, Unique Process Analytics and Repeatable, Defensible and Measurable Processes Across Multiple Matters and Parties

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - September 9, 2009) - CaseCentral, the leader in on-demand eDiscovery software for corporations and law firms seeking to take control of eDiscovery, today announced that it has been selected as a "2009 Trend-Setting Product" by KMWorld Magazine. The selection highlights the popularity of CaseCentral's integrated Early Case Assessment (ECA) offering that delivers ECA in close proximity to active review, meaning that no export of data to other tools is required, increasing consistency and decreasing risk, cost and time. The CaseCentral Early Case Assessment offering is the industry's first ECA product to seamlessly integrate with active litigation review and production software. CaseCentral's integrated, multi-purpose eDiscovery platform enables clients to start with ECA and pre-processing and extend through analysis, review, production and post-production re-use, facilitating collaborative assessments of new case merits and liabilities, application of first pass review, and real-time transfer to active review if required, all at a price point that shatters the current ECA pricing model.

"KMWorld's Trend-Setting Products awards began in 2003. This year, more than 800 products were assessed by our judging panel, which consists of editorial colleagues, analysts, system integrators, vendors, line-of-business managers and users," said Hugh McKellar, KMWorld editor-in-chief. "The products selected all demonstrate clearly identifiable technology breakthroughs that serve the vendors' full spectrum of constituencies, especially their customers. We are proud to acknowledge CaseCentral for its innovation in creating the first eDiscovery platform to integrate key eDiscovery functions, including Early Case Assessment (ECA)."

CaseCentral ECA functionality allows attorneys to:

--  Consider strategies, perform analysis, evaluate liability and
    eliminate irrelevant data.
--  Analyze any given data set to cull down to only relevant and
    responsive data before moving into active review.
--  Collaborate securely with inside and outside counsel without
    compromising any active litigation reviews.
--  Collect preservation metadata related to the legal hold (i.e. case
    name, sources, file paths, time and date of collection, applicable
    retention policy, etc.)
--  Employ file extension filtering and NSRL database filtering (de-NIST)
--  Utilize keyword or conceptual term search filters and conceptual
    classification across terabytes of data with 100% fully indexed metadata,
    full email thread support, duplicate management and near-duplicate
    identification.
--  Based on active attorney designations, re-evaluate and modify/remove
    keywords, custodians and concepts to cull irrelevant documents during
    review. (i.e.: keywords with low responsive rates may be dropped from
    collections.)
--  Create content profiles to quickly locate potentially privileged and
    confidential content, as well as segregating non-relevant documents. (i.e.:
    create a 'smart folder' for spam content.)
--  Report metrics regarding data volumes, data types, custodians and
    collection metadata.
--  Classify documents by potential treatment (aka: potentially
    privileged) and move them directly into active review.
    

"It is an honor to be recognized by KMWorld Magazine for a second year," said Steve d'Alencon, chief marketing officer, CaseCentral. "CaseCentral's trend-setting approach treats ECA as an integrated part of the overall review and analysis process, which has the potential to improve both transparency and consistency, decreasing risk and benefiting both inside and outside counsel."
