What's new for our customers

 

Support for collection from Office® 365 Exchange and OneDrive

Release 9.5.1 supports identification and collection of data from Microsoft 365® (formerly Office 365®), where Microsoft Graph APIs and OAuth2 authentication is used to connect to Office® 365 Cloud Apps, such as Exchange and OneDrive. Now, eDiscovery Platform supports collection from Office 365 OneDrive and changes how the collection from Office® 365 Exchange is done. The collection from Office 365® also supports federated collection with rich server-side filtering capabilities. This has improved the reliability and performance of the eDiscovery Platform data collection from Office® 365. eDiscovery Platform continues support for data collection from the legacy Office® 365, where MAPI/HTTP is used to connect to Office® 365.

 

Improved data-classification with the integration of Veritas Information Classifier 2.3.0

Release 9.5.1 comes with an updated version of the Veritas Information Classifier engine 2.3.0. This release provides enhanced classification capabilities that can be used during the processing of the collected data. This version provides new classification policies, as follows:

  • Argentina Personal Data & Sensitive Data Policies
  • Canada Personal Data & Sensitive Data Policies (PIPEDA)
  • China Personal Data & Sensitive Data Policies
  • COVID-19 Policies
  • Hong Kong Personal Data & Sensitive Data Policies
  • South Africa POPI (Personal Data) & Sensitive Data Policies
  • Russia Personal Data & Sensitive Data Policies
  • Thailand Personal Data & Sensitive Data Policies
  • Ukraine Personal Data & Sensitive Data Policies
  • Ransomware Note policy
  • Detection of Brazil Registro Nacional de Veículos Automotores (RENAVAM) (vehicle registration) numbers
  • Detection of Brazil Titulo de eleitor (voter ID) numbers
  • Detection of Brazil PIS/PASEP ID numbers

 

Support for Global Activity Reports

Release 9.5.1 now provides a support feature that enables users to generate the Global Activity Report either for a specific case or for all cases. Users can select the time zones in which the last activity time should be reported, and generate reports based on the activity type.

 

EML to MSG conversion for Enterprise Vault collection

eDiscovery Platform now converts the EML files that are collected from all Enterprise Vault archives, such as Exchange, SMTP, and IMAP into MSG files that are stored in PST files. This results in faster collection and processing of data from Enterprise Vault and enhanced usability in dealing with a PST file instead of individual loose EML files.


Support for Java SE Development Kit 8, Update 251 (JDK 8u251)

Veritas eDiscovery Platform 9.5.1 is certified to work with Java SE Development Kit 8, Update 251 (JDK 8u251). After eDiscovery Platform is upgraded to the 9.5.1 release, you must update the Java SDK on the eDiscovery Platform server using the installer available as part of Veritas_eDiscovery_Platform_9.5.1.zip.

 

Support for MySQL Server 5.6.48

After the eDiscovery Platform environment is upgraded to the 9.5.1 release, run the MySQL Upgrade installer to upgrade the MySQL to version 5.6.48 to meet the security needs. Perform the MySQL upgrade using the installer available as part of the Veritas_eDiscovery_Platform_9.5.1.zip.

Install Instructions:

 

Install/upgrade instructions Veritas eDiscovery Platform 9.5.1 supports the following upgrade path:

  • Veritas eDiscovery Platform Release 9.5

If you are running above listed version, you must run the incremental installer to install 9.5.1 on the following:

  • Master Node and all other nodes in the cluster
  • Confirmation Server (Note: If you are using a dedicated Confirmation Server, then you must run the 9.5.1 incremental installer on the Confirmation Server.)
  • Utility node

eDiscovery Platform does not support release upgrades that extend past a previous version release (for example, you cannot perform a direct upgrade from 9.0 to 9.5.1). Instead, eDiscovery Platform requires intermediary upgrades to update the product to the latest version. In the case of 9.5.1, your system must be running 9.5 before running and applying the 9.5.1 incremental install.

 

You may need to restart your system after upgrading to 9.5.1 if prompted.

 

Note: After eDiscovery Platform is upgraded to the 9.5.1 release, you must update the Java SDK on the eDiscovery Platform server.

 

Distributed Architecture Deployment Updates

 

If you are using a distributed architecture deployment, the 9.5.1 installation retains the product version as 9.5.1.0. All nodes in a cluster must be upgraded to the same version; otherwise, nodes will not be available.

To upgrade the nodes

  1. Stop all services on all nodes.
  2. Install 9.5.1 on the Master node first.
  3. Continue to install 9.5.1 on all other nodes in the cluster.

 

Note: After eDiscovery Platform is upgraded to the 9.5.1 release, you must update the Java SDK on the eDiscovery Platform server.  See “Support for Java SE Development Kit 8, Update 251 (JDK 8u251)
