E-Discovery Shapes Up for Fresh Challenges

With vendors gearing up for the fall product onslaught, laptops, advanced search technologies, and archiving partnerships are all looming large on the e-discovery agenda.

First up is Kazeon Systems, which announced its laptop and desktop e-discovery plans at the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA)s annual conference in Grapevine, Texas, this week.

Laptops have already been highlighted as one of the major challenges in e-discovery , particularly implementing a laptop "legal hold" where data cannot be changed or deleted.

“It’s pretty complex to do any analysis and e-discovery on laptops,” says Sudhakar Muddu, Kazeon’s CEO. “Because most large enterprises have hundreds of thousands of desktops, it’s virtually impossible to install an agent.”

For this reason, Kazeon has built a set of "spiders" and "crawlers," which can perform "agentless" e-discovery into the latest version its IS1200-ECS appliance.
