Cisco Kicks Off ’E-Discovery 2.0’ Effort

The technologies include archiving tools for e-mail storage and analysis applications that reduce volumes of e-mail only to relevant messages.

Cisco Systems on Monday said it's using next-generation technologies known as "E-Discovery 2.0" to get a better handle on digital archiving of e-mail and documents for legal purposes.

The shift from voice-mail to e-mail has created an influx of written communication that needs to be stored and managed. Simply storing e-mail records on disk is not enough since regulations are forcing businesses to preserve and review these records for e-discovery, said Clearwell Systems, a provider of software that helps businesses discover, organize, and analyze information captured in e-mail and documents.

E-Discovery 2.0 refers to a collection of technologies that can help businesses reduce the cost and risk of managing e-mail and documents.

"We have embraced E-Discovery 2.0 solutions like Clearwell, which allows us to locate and review relevant data quickly, which in turn leads to early, accurate case assessment and more cost effective results," said Neal Rubin, Cisco's senior director of litigation, in a statement.

The technologies include scalable archiving tools for e-mail storage, analysis applications that reduce volumes of e-mail only to relevant messages, tools for efficient e-mail storage, advanced visualization capabilities like graphical representation of e-mail discussions, and adoption of open standards like EDRM and XML to avoid errors associated with converting and loading data into proprietary electronic discovery systems.
