Storage Prepares for Court

The legal and storage worlds will come together in New York City this week, as vendors unveil a plethora of products around content monitoring, CDP, and software as a service (SaaS) at the LegalTech show.

As CIOs and IT managers struggle with the storage impact of the amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) and an ever more litigious corporate landscape, vendors are eyeing new opportunities.

First up is Mimosa, which is adding content monitoring to its Nearpoint email archiving software. "It's a software module that sits on top of Nearpoint," explains T.M. Ravi, the Mimosa CEO, adding that the module generates email alerts based on predefined keywords and phrases.

Examples of alerts include identifying instances of sexual harassment or intellectual property "leakage" concerning sensitive product information. The content-monitoring module, which will be announced and made generally available tomorrow, is priced at $16 per user.

Mimosa will also be cranking up its partner strategy this week, announcing integration deals with e-discovery specialists RenewData and Index Engines. RenewData will now take information from tape and older email formats such as Groupwise and Lotus Domino and convert it into an Exchange format that can be ingested by the Nearpoint hardware.
