AccessData Makes AD Lab Forensics Platform Available on AWS and Azure Cloud Platforms
AccessData Group, a provider of integrated digital forensics and e-discovery software, is making its AD Lab centralized investigations platform available to users in the cloud.
According to Victor Limongelli, chief executive officer of AccessData, as datasets in digital forensics investigations continue to grow and teams become more distributed, customers are asking for more flexible deployment options for the software. To enable more flexibility, in addition to installing AD Lab onto customers’ on-premise servers, the company is now providing them with a way to now able to leverage the scalability of the cloud as well.
AD Lab is a large-scale investigations and processing engine that enables computer forensics labs of all sizes to provide their teams with collaborative analysis, centralized case management and web-based review, thereby streamlining the investigative process. The product is now available to customers on Amazon Web Services and can be obtained on AWS Marketplace. AccessData also expects to have AD Lab available on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform in Q4 2017.
Limongelli also announced that the company plans to make its flagship e-discovery software product, AD eDiscovery, available to customers in the cloud as well. AD eDiscovery provides corporate IT and corporate legal teams with a software platform to conduct data collection, enterprise search, preservation, litigation holds, data processing, early data assessment and complete legal review.
The company has also released new 6.3 versions of both AD eDiscovery and Summation, a web-based e-discovery review solution that supports the post-data collection stages of the e-discovery process and enables secure collaboration, regardless of where any member of the litigation team is located.
AccessData tools are now able to connect with Brainspace, machine learning software that leverages the power of augmented intelligence to accelerate e-discovery review. Brainspace customers can now push data from—and pull data out of—AD eDiscovery, in order to gain deeper insights into their datasets.
AD eDiscovery 6.3 and Summation 6.3 also feature enhancements to collect emails containing “illegal” data and migrate those files into the AccessData environment for processing; new data collector support for the latest Enterprise Vault and OneDrive environments; and the ability to create and export searchable PDFs from native files.
