Information Governance, Risk Management, Legal Discovery, Compliance: Symantec

This article appears in the issue July/August 2008, [Vol 17, Issue 7]


Growth in the volume and variety of electronic communication is matched only by growing demands for Discovery to support litigation. New requirements codified under the US Federal Rules of Civil procedure raise risks for organizations that lack disciplined, efficient E-Discovery processes. Symantec solutions support collection and retention of unstructured content, effective Electronic Discovery for real-world litigation, and documentation of compliance with policy and law.

Symantec’s solution for content archiving and Electronic Legal Discovery has two parts:

  • Symantec Enterprise Vault is the industry’s most widely-deployed solution for applying content retention policies to email, IM, SharePoint and file system archives. The solution includes the capability for routine, limited, or preliminary searches by IT, end users or other in-house staff.
  • Symantec Enterprise Vault Discovery Accelerator supports litigation response, accelerating search, management, and production of electronically stored information by in-house legal counsel through broad, flexible search and export capabilities. Evidence is documented through creation and maintenance of audit trails, and careful adherence to legal workflow.

Legal Discovery can be slow, expensive, and risky—particularly for companies that are unprepared. Symantec offers proven archiving technology, collaboration-oriented E-Discovery tools, and advanced services to build effective, policy-driven, cost effective and litigation-ready E-Discovery processes.
