Launching Trusted Edge ICE version 3.4 at LEGALTECH 2009 will be an exciting event because the product delivers a fresh, best-practices approach to information classification and management
Rockville, MD (PRWEB) January 29, 2009
FileTek, Inc., a pioneer developer of innovative information and data management solutions, today announced that it will introduce and launch Trusted Edge® Information Classification Engine (ICE) version 3.4 at the upcoming LEGALTECH® 2009 tradeshow in New York on February 2-4. Attendees can visit FileTek at booth #3209.
Organizations that lack policy standards and governance controls for content created at the workstation level face significant litigation and compliance risk. Trusted Edge ICE eliminates this risk by extending electronic records control and legal hold management to all workstations and laptops throughout the enterprise, regardless of whether they are network-connected or offline. The benefit is policy-driven content classification, preservation, lockdown, and collection at the desktop level - where more than 80% of electronic information originates.
Trusted Edge ICE follows a proven best practices approach to information classification and management with its end-user and auto-classification features. Users can actively classify email, Microsoft Office documents, and other files according to their role and function within the organization, and/or Trusted Edge ICE can categorize documents automatically based on a pre-defined classification schema.
When combined with an existing legal hold solution for custodial identification, notification, and management, Trusted Edge ICE empowers organizations to fulfill their legal obligation to preserve critical content, either by locking it down in place or collecting it as required. In addition, Trusted Edge ICE enables organizations to maintain a proper custodial chain throughout the content lifecycle with desktop audit trail capability.
Under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP), organizations are under intense pressure to accurately maintain a "good working inventory" of electronically stored information and quickly deliver content for discovery. As a result, many organizations are at a crossroads. They can continue to react only when litigation occurs or an investigation arises - spending considerable money and manpower to produce the required information. Or, they can act proactively - always standing ready - by making Trusted Edge ICE a tactical, cost-effect piece of their overall information management strategy.
"Launching Trusted Edge ICE version 3.4 at LEGALTECH 2009 will be an exciting event because the product delivers a fresh, best-practices approach to information classification and management," commented Mike Smith, the FileTek General Manager of the Trusted Edge Product Group. "Even in today's challenging economic climate, Trusted Edge ICE provides a cost-correct ROI by eliminating traditional legal hold methods such as hard disk imaging and full desktop spidering, mitigating risk caused by inappropriate content deletion or data spoliation, and reducing eDiscovery costs often due to over-collecting non-relevant information for review. I look forward to unveiling this new release and embracing new Trusted Edge business partners and customer relationships."
