ZyLAB deepens e-discovery
ZyLAB has announced three new modules for its ZyIMAGE E-discovery and Production platform. These three new modules enable organizations to audit and keep detailed records of their in-house e-discovery process to provide validation to the court that it was done properly.
The PST-to-XML Module is critical to the e-discovery process. Although e-mail is an excellent medium for transferring information, a PST file is not a sustainable, endurable and open archive. Further, searching through PST files can be slow, and the format does not allow searching on the contents of attachments. The new PST-to-XML Module allows a user to extract items from a Microsoft Outlook PST file and save them as either .msg or .rtf files with the help of XML wrappers, which store the properties of the Microsoft Outlook item. These files can be imported into a ZyIMAGE index, then searched and retrieved using several ZyLAB solutions including ZyFIND, the ZyIMAGE Webserver or the ZyIMAGE Legal Review Platform. Users can then easily search all e-mail files and attachments.
The ZyIMAGE Deduplication Module is used to find duplicate files that exist in a single ZyIMAGE Index, or across a series of ZyIMAGE Indexes. The duplicate files can be deleted, marked, moved or copied. This is important due to the growing amount of electronic data in corporations, particularly for those corporations who have had overly broad or non-existent record retention policies.
The ZyIMAGE Culling Module is used to filter chosen file types from source folders and copy or move them to specified target folders where they can be indexed with ZyINDEX (a solution that creates and manages all the searchable archives that contain scanned and electronic information). The ZyIMAGE Culling Module enables users to filter by data groups, add and modify data groups, create XML wrappers, add extra metadata, post-process image files, uncompress files and create reports.
