eDiscovery done right

EnCase Information Assurance helps you establish best practices throughout the eDiscovery workflow.

  • Legal hold

    Automate legal hold processes and management

    You need an integrated, comprehensive, and largely automated solution to systematically notify custodians that may be party to a litigation matter. Executing legal hold in a defensible manner will greatly reduce your risk of spoliation or missing production deadlines that can result in significant sanctions to your organization. With EnCase Information Assurance you can:

    • Create and manage litigation holds from a single interface
    • Automate everything from legal notices to manager escalations
    • Ensure preservation obligations are met in full
    • Provide global cross-case reports and custodian overview dashboards
  • Pre-collection analytics

    Make faster case strategy decisions

    Your company will want to know at the first sign of potential litigation, where your data is, who has it, and how much will need to be collected. Understanding the scope of the request will determine your resources and how much money to set aside. With EnCase Information Assurance you can:

    • Test search criteria before any data is actually collected
    • Proactively identify potential custodians and data sources
    • Gain insight within minutes versus waiting weeks for solutions that first require indexing, collecting, and processing
    • Clearly understand the proportionality of production requests
  • Collect & preserve

    Powerful collections and a defensible preservation process

    Courts can sanction organizations if reasonable steps are not taken to preserve electronic data. Many systems preserve data and documents in-place, which put you at risk of spoliation. But EnCase Information Assurance enables you to precisely collect and preserve potentially relevant data, either on premise or in the cloud, with a defensible process that ensures strict chain of custody.

    • Robust connectors to e-mail sources and content repositories
    • Ability to collect from Box, Dropbox, Amazon S3, Microsoft Office 365, and Google Drive
    • Electronic data is preserved in a forensically sound manner
  • Process

    Save time and lower costs with strong processing capabilities

    Many enterprise organizations can have terabytes (and even petabytes) of data that may relate to impending litigation. You need a scalable and automated process to cull data into manageable and highly responsive results. With EnCase Information Assurance you can:

    • Programmatically eliminate up to 90% of non-responsive data
    • Remove redundant data through de-duplication and advanced near-duplication capabilities
    • Scale with distributed processing so several dozen machines can quickly process even terabytes of data
  • Review

    A cloud-hosted collaborative review platform

    OpenText Axcelerate, a sister solution to EnCase Information Assurance is a powerful, secure, private cloud-hosted multi-matter review platform with advanced analysis and technology assisted (TAR) review functionality. The review capabilities support sophisticated side-by-side review comparison and consolidated display of similar information. This delivers unprecedented review efficiency (speed) and effectiveness (quality and consistency) across all matters.

    • Protect and control your sensitive data (e.g., confidential, privileged, etc.) when allowing access by third parties
    • Increase productivity by reusing previous work product
    • Combine early case assessment with review and production
  • Production

    Deliver content in all standard formats

    Once your content has been processed, analyzed and reviewed, it can be produced at any time in all standard formats. EnCase Information Assurance fully supports the delivery of content to outside counsel, the courts, and regulatory agencies with appropriate load files in all common formats. You can produce documents as single instances or reproduce and organize by custodian. With EnCase Information Assurance you can:

    • Gain confidence with quality-control and coding checks made across all matters
    • Ensure on-time production with flexible export criteria
    • Pre-define production authorization processes

What our customers say

“We use Box for our cloud storage; and so having EnCase Information Assurance that’s compatible with Box is so helpful when we need to get data and user profiles out of Box. To have a tool and a service that will automatically work without having to toggle and play with is helpful. It really speeds our process along.”

Argonne National Laboratory

“Fortunately for P&G, we found this capability in a few vendors, like Guidance Software, and depend on their products and services to achieve an efficient, repeatable, and defensible eDiscovery process.”
