eDiscovery (short for ‘electronic discovery’) refers to the process of finding and collecting electronically stored information – typically for lawsuits, investigation, or legal purposes. While data custodians were previously faced with exhaustive and brute-force discovery efforts, they can now lean on technology to assist in locating and preserving pertinent data for compliance purposes. But not all eDiscovery solutions are created equal – leaving many with shallow or disparate search tools that feel just as antiquated as the manual processes custodians wrestled with for decades.
Better eDiscovery requires better tools. Here’s how compliance search in Metallic eDiscovery with stands apart:
More than metadata
- While other SaaS data protection vendors leverage metadata search for eDiscovery, Metallic offers deep and comprehensive capabilities to uncover data buried deep within customer environments. With Metallic, users can search keywords, terms, phrases OR metadata to pinpoint relevant emails, communications, files, and attachments. Combined with rich and granular filtering controls, Metallic removes contextual limitations experienced with vendors who exclusively rely on metadata search.
- Business data is everywhere. It lives in files, emails, laptops, applications, and more. Hopping from system to system, user to user, and environment to environment to locate data for legal purposes is not only inefficient, but also creates the risk of oversight. With Metallic eDiscovery, users get a unified eDiscovery experience that fluidly traverses Office 365 and Endpoint workloads. For data custodians, this means one centralized search engine that spans across both environments in unison. No separate applications. No disjointed tools. No siloed environments. Just one search experience to discover and maintain organizational compliance without hassle.
- Let’s face it… there is power in simplicity. Metallic eDiscovery delivers an intuitive experience without sacrificing functionality, and seamlessly pairs with Metallic data protection. Designed for users of every proficiency, the eDiscovery capabilities for Office 365 and Endpoint Backup & Recovery offering provide a straightforward, easy-to-use experience – helping users pinpoint data with better speed and precision.
