Guidance Software Partners with kCura to Accelerate E-Discovery Processes
Guidance Software, the maker of EnCase, a solution for forensic security, and kCura, the developer of the e-discovery software Relativity, are integrating their products to simplify and accelerate e-discovery.
Tying kCura’s community of more than 140,000 Relativity users to Guidance’s 33 million endpoints will enable the companies to jointly provide a more complete and more connected e-discovery experience, explained kCura CEO Andrew Sieja.
The ability to leverage solutions across multiple stages of the e-discovery process is critical for organizations in order to achieve efficiency with constantly increasing caseloads, and, in particular, the vendors say, EnCase eDiscovery combined with Relativity will help e-discovery teams to work with and move their data more quickly and intelligently.
The integration will provide an open platform that leverages technology across complex workflows, said Guidance Software CEO Patrick Dennis, observing that the courts are increasingly focusing on cyber-related litigation to combat ransomware and other digital security matters, customers need solutions for a wide variety of e-discovery challenges.
Key advantages of the integration, the companies say, is that it will eliminate the creation of load files, allowing users to log into Relativity from within EnCase, export data directly and readily available for review. It will also enable the mapping and transfer of native files and metadata seamlessly into any Relativity workspace logically grouped by custodian and data source, and new items will be automatically appended to Relativity without creating duplicates.
