CHICAGO (PRWEB) August 13, 2013
Cumulus Data, Inc., the creators of eCloudCollect™, today announced the release of version 2.0 of its flagship product. This ESI collection tool now has the ability to collect cloud-stored or remotely-located data directly to physical storage devices such as flash drives and hard drives, in addition to its original collect-to-the-cloud functionality. The new feature saves time and is ideal for clients who want to conduct larger collections in a secure and forensically sound manner without concern for bandwidth capacity.
The product update comes as a response to client needs for greater remote collection speed and flexibility. eCloudCollect is designed to perform targeted collections of online and remote data without business interruption and now offers the option to upload and preserve collections in the cloud or download onto an encrypted physical device. When performing offline remote data collections, eCloudCollect users maintain control of the collection by administering the process via the cloud-based software that allows them to index the custodian’s computer and choose the most appropriate collection method.
“Version 2.0 will allow the user to remotely view the custodian’s computer and network prior to performing the collection, eliminating the need for on-site travel and allowing the user to make informed decisions based on possible size, bandwidth and time constraints,” said Sarah Thompson, Cumulus Data’s Vice President of Product Management. “Our users will now be able to perform better targeted remote collections with the assurance that the collection is secure and forensically sound regardless of where the collected data is stored.”
While the collection is taking place, the custodian can continue to work on his or her machine without disrupting the data transfer. eCloudCollect 2.0 encrypts the data on the media, tracks the collection’s progress, informs users when the collection is complete and keeps custodial involvement to a minimum. This allows less room for error and makes way for continued business productivity, unlike other self-collection tools on the market.
The release of eCloudCollect 2.0 will enable users to utilize the platform in a greater variety of circumstances, extend their collection offering to clients and capitalize on more ESI collection business.
Cumulus Data representatives will attend this year’s ILTA conference at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas and are available for private meetings and demonstrations. Please contact Sarah Thompson directly at 805-404-6410 or sarah(dot)thompson(at)cumulusdatainc(dot)com.
