Trusted Edge provides us with an excellent tool to leverage existing Electronic Content Management (ECM)/archive deployments, such as Microsoft® SharePoint, Symantec Enterprise Vault, and other repository applications, by extending their control to all unstructured content created at the desktop level
Rockville, MD (PRWEB) October 6, 2009
FileTek, Inc., a pioneer developer of innovative data management and information governance solutions, today announced that it has entered into a partnership with leading Silicon Valley IT consulting company Coyote Creek Consulting. Coyote Creek will offer the FileTek Trusted Edge solution and related services, including installation, configuration, customization and support, as part of its expanded Records Management practice. Trusted Edge is a comprehensive content policy management and desktop information governance software that cost-effectively extends enterprise content management policies, including classification, collection, filing, legal hold management, and disposition, to content created at the desktop level - where more than 80% of electronic information originates and resides.
As with all enterprise content, organizations must effectively manage content created and stored on employees' desktops for retention, eDiscovery, knowledge, and cost. However, most people currently create, modify, share, and store content on their desktops without regard for corporate policy standards, organizational structure, or retention rules. Trusted Edge overcomes this dilemma by bringing order and enforceable structure to business information residing across the network - including on user desktops and laptops.
"Trusted Edge provides us with an excellent tool to leverage existing Electronic Content Management (ECM)/archive deployments, such as Microsoft® SharePoint, Symantec Enterprise Vault, and other repository applications, by extending their control to all unstructured content created at the desktop level," states Mike Faster, President of Coyote Creek. "We are impressed with the Trusted Edge best practices approach to classification and the way the product automates content collection, movement, and control to reduce compliance and litigation risk."
"FileTek is excited about the opportunity to partner with a prestigious Tier 1 solutions provider such as Coyote Creek," explains Gary Szukalski, President of FileTek. "Coyote Creek is dedicated to delivering effective solutions in demanding IT environments as well as maintaining incredibly high customer satisfaction rates - two objectives that are also extremely important to FileTek. Both FileTek and Coyote Creek believe that Trusted Edge has many competitive advantages, including automatic and end-user classification options; support for email and all file types (not just Microsoft Office documents); remediation, classification, and filing of legacy as well as new content; forensic authentication based on tagging each file and email; and comprehensive legal hold at the desktop level. With these unique features and Coyote Creek's experience in the marketplace, I look forward to a very successful partnership."
