Druva Joins Forces with Recommind to Expedite Endpoint eDiscovery
Druva announced today that it has partnered with eDiscovery pioneer Recommind to create the industry’s most comprehensive solution for document collection, analysis and review. The partnership combines the eDiscovery enablement capabilities of Druva’s inSync endpoint data protection and governance platform, including legal hold management, with the power and simplicity of Recommind’s Axcelerate platform for hosted review and analysis.
The joint solution marks the first collaboration between endpoint backup and eDiscovery providers. It utilizes unique technology from each company to collect and analyze data from thousands of enterprise endpoints, from phones to tablets to laptops, under the tightest legal and regulatory deadlines.
Druva's benefits include the unique ability to remotely deploy inSync across both company- and employee-owned devices without end user knowledge, transparently create a centralized record of all endpoint data and shared files that is accessible by federated search, and preserve relevant data in place without the need to export it to an intermediary server. No other endpoint backup platform offers this combination of capabilities, which are critical for expediting data collection and ensuring data integrity.
Recommind's Axcelerate end-to end- platform offers powerful visualizations, a huge range of sophisticated workflows, and a familiar point-and-click interface that makes collection, analysis, review, and production faster and more efficient for every kind of case. It also includes Recommind's groundbreaking Predictive Coding technology, which uses machine learning to reduce the time and cost of document review up to 90% over linear review.
The partnership gives Axcelerate direct access to data within inSync, eliminating the extra steps involved in using two separate solutions.
"Our goal in looking for an eDiscovery partner was to make it faster, easier and less costly for organizations to analyze endpoint data that has been collected and preserved by our inSync system so that it can be quickly packaged and turned over to legal counsel. That in turn will give attorneys more time to evaluate the information and build their legal strategy," said Chandar Venkataraman, Chief Product Officer at Druva. "As a leading eDiscovery company and a pioneer in technology-assisted document review, Recommind is an ideal partner that any organization can use with confidence when they need to evaluate legal threats."
"The lack of a centralized repository for content held on endpoints has been a stumbling block in identifying, collecting and placing legal holds on custodian data. This partnership means Axcelerate can now reach into any device easily, eliminating the need to physically collect data from laptops and other mobile devices, as well as the associated risks to data integrity," said Neil Etheridge, Vice President, Product Marketing at Recommind. "Axcelerate combined with Druva inSync means companies can quickly and confidently respond to litigation and execute legal holds no matter where their data may reside."
