Advanced eDiscovery key features
Advanced eDiscovery includes the following features:
Advanced iterative search capabilities
Advanced eDiscovery enables you to accelerate eDiscovery and investigations with powerful search capabilities to deliver fast results. Advanced eDiscovery enables you to build iterative searches using multiple criteria and to refine searches until the relevant information is located. If you add any criteria that narrow the search results too significantly, you can delete the term that limited the results, without re-building the entire search.
Once the desired criteria are established, you can save the search. If you save the search as an on-going search, any new items that meet the criteria are automatically found, which significantly reduces review time. Phrase, Boolean, proximity, and wildcard search functionality enables relevant information to be found quickly, and allows further refinement of search results before export.
Collaborative eDiscovery workflow
Advanced eDiscovery provides a built-in collaborative workflow. Advanced eDiscovery's case management capabilities enable multiple reviewers to interact and collaborate on a specific case. Once a case is created, you can provision each reviewer with distinct privileges within the case. Reviewers can review messages, view case logs and reports, create exports, manage other reviewers, and edit a case, depending on their privileges. The external reviewers can have the additional privilege - download shared export - that allows them to download the exports shared by the administrator.
A reviewer with access to a case can use the extensive search capabilities to search the archives of the custodians involved. Searches can be saved and assigned to various reviewers to distribute the workload and expedite the eDiscovery process.
A reviewer can place archived information on legal hold, apply review status tags and labels, categorize information, and add notes for other reviewers.
Classification with the Enterprise Vault.cloud Information Classifier.
If your company has the Veritas Information Classifier service enabled, the service can apply classification tags to Enterprise Vault.cloud's incoming emails that match the enabled policies in the Veritas Information Classifier. Advanced eDiscovery users can then search for the emails that are tagged with these classification tags.
See About classification.
Flexible export options
Designated reviewers and administrators can perform online exports of search results. The ability for you to export data yourself minimizes your IT team's workload.
You can export archived information from the archive in EML, PST, and NSF formats, with or without EDRM XML files. The archived information can then be imported into solutions like the Veritas™ eDiscovery Platform. An authorized reviewer or administrator can name and password-protect their exports.
Advanced eDiscovery offers reporting functionality for reviewers and administrators to view audit trails for individual messages, or to view the history of an entire case.
