DS3 Partners for e-Discovery

FAIRFAX, Va. and NEW YORK -- DS3 DataVaulting, a leading provider of offsite, online data backup and restore services, which enables customers to rapidly and securely back up and restore files, databases and operating systems, today announced a partnership with WorkProducts to deliver the only comprehensive Evidence Lifecycle Management
(ELM) platform with MatterSpace. With the high volume and complexity of information today, MatterSpace is an all-inclusive, auditable ELM solution that speeds up matter-specific data delivery by a factor of ten and significantly eases the burden of compliance with the 2006 amended Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. MatterSpaceÒwill be unveiled at the LegalTech show being held February 5-7, 2008 in New York.

MatterSpace is the first software solution that integrates into the DS3 DataVaulting gateway and seamlessly combines the record management system with downstream eDiscovery services to support collection, identification and preservation of both structured and unstructured data for legal discovery. MatterSpace crawls your network to identify, preserve, collect, index and de-duplicate accessible structured and unstructured electronically stored information (ESI) for all custodians and sources. Regardless of where documents are located, you can facilitate collaboration among concerned parties and track all matter-specific communications and events, such as litigation holds. Through the automated and repeatable appliance-based MatterSpace processes, legal professionals can produce relevant data to meet eDiscovery deadlines while also cutting expenses. This solution also provides simple set-up for data backup needs and automatically secures the information in an off-site facility. Since all data is digitally encrypted and signed, it can never be read or tampered with by unauthorized personnel

“MatterSpace provides automated identification, preservation and collection of electronically stored information to provide the enterprise and legal/IT team with a matter-specific single version of the truth,” said Stacy Hayes, co-founder and Chief Operating Officer of DS3 DataVaulting. “The legal profession increasingly relies on access to vital, practice-related information such as correspondence, memos, and financial records. Our partnership with WorkProducts provides the customer with the ability to manage up to fifty million files, index up to two thousand documents per minute and create a credible audit trail. Showcasing MatterSpace at LegalTech provides us with an unparalleled platform for discussing the emerging need to quickly find and easily produce relevant data to meet eDiscovery needs while reducing legal review costs by 50 to 75 percent.”
