Sherpa Software Releases Latest Versions of Discovery Attender® for Exchange and Notes

Sherpa Software's Products Expedite E-Discovery Investigations Within .NSF Files, Mailboxes and PST Files

PITTSBURGH, PA--(Marketwire - October 14, 2008) - Sherpa Software today announced the latest releases of Discovery Attender for Exchange and Notes. The new versions, Discovery Attender for Exchange version 3.0 and Discovery Attender for Notes version 6.4d/8.0, include enhancements that aid in the production of responsive information for litigation, e-discovery and internal investigations while still offering a non-intrusive architecture, easy-to-use interface and attractive price point.

Discovery Attender assists IT, Litigation Support and Legal Teams in searching live data stores and addressing the amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) by effectively gathering and producing responsive information in a timely, defensible manner.

Discovery Attender for Exchange automates the discovery of information in Exchange mailboxes, PST files, public folders and common storage areas. Version 3.0 improves search performance by 25%, increases the collection of detail with expanded Pattern Matching and adds new functionality including Indexing of Results and Automatic Labels. Pattern matching allows users to find complex criteria such as PCI data (e.g. social security numbers, credit card numbers) or patent numbers by deploying Regular Expressions and enhanced wildcards. In addition, the new Automatic Label functionality allows users to enter a secondary set of criteria, especially those that want to mark and exclude privileged data without running a separate search process.

Discovery Attender for Notes is designed to perform investigative tasks in Domino server databases, instant message logs and common file storage areas. Many times, outside Law Firms and Legal teams are handed .NSF files from their clients but lack the hardware and technical expertise to properly search them. Version 6.4d/8.0 provides a Desktop installation option that bypasses the costly and cumbersome process of setting up an in-house Notes domain and allows the discovery of content within .NSF files without a Domino server.

"The Discovery market has been exploding," says Kevin Ogrodnik, President of Sherpa Software. "With the number of compliance regulations and the increase in corporate litigation, companies must be able to search and quickly retrieve data across multiple locations such as email, PST files, network files and desktops. Our discovery products allow companies, of all sizes across every industry, to gain a thorough understanding of what data resides in their systems and meticulously retrieve relevant data into specific legal holds."
