Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 19, 2009
Atlanta-based earlyCASE, the leader in advanced early case assessment for Electronically Stored Information (ESI) and eDiscovery, today released filtering and culling capabilities in its market-leading eDiscovery early case assessment software available as Software-as-a-Service "SaaS" from http://www.earlycase.com. earlyCASE is a SaaS web-based eDiscovery application which uses an on-demand deployment model (runs on your local PC), collects, preserves, analyzes and filters the ESI that your computer can access in-place without the data ever leaving your computer or network.
earlyCASE allows you to quickly and safely collect, organize, understand eDiscovery data, and apply filter / culling rules before it is processed for discovery. It supports Unicode, extracts metadata, generates hash values, detects duplicates, removes known system files and creates a local inventory database of documents and emails. earlyCASE allows users to make informed discovery decisions, easily and quickly cut down the size of data sets through filter and culling rules before going into the meet and confer, discovery processing and document review.
In the past, preserving, collecting, analyzing and filtering electronically stored information had to be handled in separate steps. earlyCASE can safely collect ESI, preserve all metadata, seamlessly analyze and filter the ESI to deliver rapid early case assessment and reduction in the amount of data being processed and reviewed. With the release today of the latest version of earlyCASE, you can create filter rules and see in real time the reduction in size and counts these rules have, then use earlyCASE to quickly separate the filtered documents, files and emails from the collection all without any additional software or costs.
"We are excited to add integrated capabilities to filter ESI to the list of professional features available in earlyCASE. In addition to now removing known system files, filtering and culling data, earlyCASE handles PST's, NSF's, EnCase Images and loose files. The Ultra low cost, flexibility and speed that eDiscovery early case assessment as a software- as-a-service delivers is unparalleled," said Tom Strack, CEO of earlyCASE. "earlyCASE brings ease of use, immediate and real understanding to the eDiscovery process at the earliest moment, the lowest cost, and at an unprecedented speed, giving clients a complete view into the expanded data they have and the budgets associated with handling the ESI. With data storage continuing to increase in size, it is common to have terabytes of information to collect, process and review. earlyCASE can safely collect, rapidly analyze that data and decrease the data sets that need to be reviewed, reducing not only eDiscovery budgets, but managing their legal risk. earlyCASE can process the data in-place without it ever leaving where it is stored, using your own people and equipment and without any per gigabyte charges. "
earlyCASE is offered in three versions, a Basic (FREE) version, a Professional version for a small flat rate charge, regardless of the amount of data you analyze, and an enterprise edition. The Basic version offers 40+ high-quality eDiscovery reports, details the expanded sizes and counts of the data, estimates your processing and review budget and provides a long list of detailed as well as summary reports. With the Professional version, duplicate files and emails are identified, Lotus Notes files are processed, Known System Files are identified, EnCase images are processed. earlyCASE Professional also provides the ability to set filtering rules can be applied to reduce the amount of data, a 26(f) report for meet and confer is available to help clients reduce legal risk exposure by offering a necessary view of the legal case information--custodians, context, third parties, and more. earlyCASE provides you the tools and results to best understand, define and memorialize the ESI going into the meet and confer. Duplicate document detection and removal, removal of known system files, elimination of files outside the dates of interest, container processing (zip, rar, arc), Lotus Notes NSF's, EnCase images and numerous Filtering options are the primary reasons most people use the Professional version of earlyCASE.
