Austin, TX (PRWEB) May 22, 2008
StoredIQ Inc., a leading provider of Intelligent Information Management technologies, today announced that its StoredIQ appliance is now available through EMC® Select. Customers can purchase the StoredIQ appliance directly from EMC as part of the EMC eDiscovery Solution for Collection. EMC will offer StoredIQ's information governance suite, which is used by enterprises in highly regulated or litigation-prone arenas to automate eDiscovery, cut legal and IT costs, and proactively manage unstructured information.
"This relationship with StoredIQ enables our customers to easily deploy an indexing and information management appliance that seamlessly connects to EMC's compliance infrastructure, including EMC Documentum and EMC Centera, EMC's leading content management and content addressed storage technologies," said Andrew Cohen, Assistant General Counsel and Vice President of EMC's Global Compliance Practice. "Customers have been looking for an affordable and low-impact way to bring eDiscovery in-house so that they can drive cost and risk out of what is today a broken business process. StoredIQ offers a robust appliance that automates key aspects of the legal eDiscovery process."
StoredIQ efficiently captures and manages data from various platforms in the enterprise, including file servers (CIFS, NFS, NetWare), live email servers (Microsoft Exchange Servers, PSTs, NSFs), notebooks and desktops (PCs, Macs), content management platforms (EMC Documentum®) and collaboration software (SharePoint).
The combined StoredIQ-EMC solution is a component of EMC's broad strategy for compliance and information management. It enables an in-house capability for efficient collection, "quick peek" review and analysis, legal hold in an immutable repository, culling, de-duplication and production of unstructured content for legal and compliance purposes. StoredIQ also adds valuable post-processing by exporting this data in review-ready load files (for applications such as Concordance® from LexisNexis®). In addition, it supports proactive risk management strategies, including the collection and remediation of legacy content from unmanaged environments into EMC content repositories, as well as classification for the proper management and disposition of business information. This solution enables customers to begin to put processes in place for proactive information management, ensuring that eDiscovery can be treated cost-effectively as a repeatable business process.
"The vast majority of data in today's enterprises is unstructured, and for many organizations that vast pool of unmanaged information doubles in size every year," said James Schellhase, President and CEO for StoredIQ. "This presents a tremendous challenge for legal and IT departments as they are at the same time confronted with strict new federal rules on information governance. The combined StoredIQ-EMC solution was lab tested by the EMC Global Compliance Solutions Practice, passing rigorous use-case testing by technical and legal experts. Further, the software completed testing through the EMC Centera® Proven Certification Program. This Proven Solution can address these information challenges companies are facing and can help significantly reduce associated costs and risks."
StoredIQ's information management appliance is available immediately through EMC Select.
