The fact that such major government agencies are replacing existing systems with Nuix is a testament to the speed and functionality of our software, stated Nuix CEO Eddie Sheehy.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 17, 2012
Nuix, a worldwide provider of information management technologies, including eDiscovery, electronic investigation and information governance software, is proud to announce that the Criminal Investigations division of the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as well as divisions of the U.S. Department of Justice (DoJ) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have all implemented Nuix software in order to improve their electronic investigation and eDiscovery procedures.
Nuix is quickly becoming the electronic investigative tool of choice for US government agencies, which already included the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
The IRS has replaced a legacy eDiscovery system with multi-user Nuix licenses to be used by investigators in its criminal division. The IRS states a number of reasons for selecting Nuix, including its appealing, intuitive nature that allows users to start using the software within a very short introduction period. They also state that Nuix’s other advantage is the unmatched rate at which unlimited amounts of eDiscovery data can be processed, indicating that this would help to maintain current litigation workloads as well as prepare for anticipated workloads in the future.
The Securities and Exchange Commission also selected Nuix based upon its ability to speed up investigations and its ability to handle large amounts of data. The SEC Enforcement attorneys and litigation support specialists are using the Nuix system to rapidly prepare document collections in the conduct of investigations and litigation.
Multiple divisions of the Department of Justice have implemented Nuix, in an effort to speed up their eDiscovery support and investigation processes. Nuix is geared primarily toward the litigation support process in one division, whereby data is processed, indexed, and culled, early case assessment is conducted, and the final data set can be loaded directly into a document review tool. The DoJ is also using Nuix to support its forensic division. Another division of the DoJ is relying on Nuix to support criminal investigations of large volumes of digital evidence.
The recent addition of Nuix software within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) further emphasizes the power Nuix can provide the Law Enforcement community within the U.S. Government. Nuix’s ease of use, simple architecture and implementation process along with its speed of processing, and extensive support of unstructured data sets will be an asset to the department. Additionally, Nuix’s speed and functionality serve to support and complement the Department’s existing toolset and investigative process.
“The fact that such major government agencies are replacing existing systems with Nuix is a testament to the speed and functionality of our software,” stated Nuix CEO Eddie Sheehy. “Nuix is the most effective system on the market for handling difficult file types and large data volumes in a short timeframe.”
Building on the success with the IRS, DoJ, DHS, SEC and other government agencies, Nuix has signed a reseller agreement with immixGroup, a leading provider of technology products and services for the public sector. This agreement is set to broaden Nuix’s appeal with other government agencies that are looking for faster and more efficient ways of managing investigations, and provide the GSA access for procurement.
