NextPage Launches NextPage Control™ to Govern Retention and Destruction of Enterprise Documents Wherever They Are Stored

NextPage Control, a Next-Generation Enterprise Information Risk Management Application, to Enable Full Control on All Information in "Wild West"

DRAPER, UT--(Marketwire - November 11, 2008) - NextPage, a leader in information risk management and compliance, today announced the availability of NextPage Control, a next generation enterprise information risk management application. The features and functionality of the award-winning NextPage Document Retention have been incorporated into the new application, NextPage Control™. The combination further enables enterprises to track all document types, enforce policy across document storage locations, control risk and minimize the cost of e-discovery.

NextPage Control ties a Digital Thread™ through all documents and versions so that a policy can be applied that results in enterprise-wide action: disposition, retention, preservation -- across all mediums, hard drives, shared drives, USB key drives, email attachments and centralized repositories. The application helps reduce the risk of information by properly disposing of work versions and scattered versions, decreasing the cost of e-discovery by reducing the number of documents retained.

"Information risk exists because organizations cannot control information assets that are created at the 'edge' across a large number of distributed devices," said Brian Babineau, Senior Analyst with Enterprise Strategy Group. "Without control, corporations will continue to save all data forever, lose intellectual property, and risk the inability to locate and preserve electronic evidence. NextPage provides a solution to help address this exact problem."

"In today's enterprises over 80% of documents should be disposed of based on policy, yet less than 5% are. This creates significant risk and in Dupont's case a cost of $11.9 M to review documents that should have been deleted," said Darren Lee, President and CEO of NextPage. "With NextPage Control, enterprises can now control all of the information in the organization and correctly enforce policy. This means they can drive compliance and reduce risk and cost."

Features of NextPage Control:

--  Tracks every document, as it proliferates and migrates, creating a
    Digital Thread
--  Controls for all document file types
--  Defines custom policies across all storage locations in the enterprise
--  Enforces dynamic policies including notifications, moves, copies,
    destruction/deletions
--  Classifies existing content and legacy data to enable policy
    application
    

Like all NextPage applications, NextPage Control sits on top of the new NextPage policy engine, NextPage Enforce™ (announced today in a separate release), which is part of the of the NextPage Platform. The NextPage solution addresses information risk by enforcing policies on documents everywhere in an organization. To accomplish this, it begins tracking documents and their classifications from the moment they are created -- and continues tracking them throughout their complete lifecycles.
