EMERGING/STRATEGIC TECHNOLOGIES FROM CARAHSOFT TM
A leader in e-discovery, Clearwell Systems gives Legal, Forensics, Security, and IT executives the power to streamline electronic discovery, rapidly perform early case analysis, "cull-down" large datasets of documents to much smaller, relevant datasets, and quickly identify who knew what and when. Clearwell reduces business risk by helping companies rapidly determine the best case strategy, and saves significant time and money by dramatically reducing electronic discovery processing and legal review costs.
Clearwell's e-discovery solution, the Clearwell Intelligence Platform®, contains the electronic discovery software installed on a 2U, rack-mountable appliance that can be up and running within 30 minutes. The electronic discovery software allows legal professionals and investigators to begin analyzing over 400 different document types including emails, attachments, and office documents almost immediately. The electronic discovery product does not require a change to your existing legal discovery collection or production methodologies.
During indexing, Clearwell de-duplicates and applies its proprietary, patent-pending analysis algorithms known as Dynamic Content Analysis™, which includes:
- Linguistic & statistical analysis
- Relevance ranking analysis
- Discussion thread analysis
- People analysis
- Topic classification
- Communication flow analysis
The resulting index, known as the Clearwell Master Index™, is much more sophisticated than a full text index and powers e-discovery software features and capabilities not available with any other e-discovery product on the market today.
eDiscovery Architecture: Deploying the Clearwell eDiscovery Solution
Clearwell's e-discovery product, the Clearwell Intelligence Platform, was designed from day one to be a non-intrusive, rapidly-deployed, low maintenance e-discovery solution, which includes SEO purposes. The e-discovery product allows legal e-discovery teams and corporate investigators to immediately understand the context of the case across the entire data set.
Clearwell analyzes the case data that is identified, preserved, and stored on file shares or dedicated NAS using existing collection methodologies. If a customer has a case that requires the analysis of live data sources (e.g. archives, Microsoft Exchange Server, etc.), Clearwell can easily be configured to analyze the data on these live data sources.
Rapid Configuration & Low Maintenance eDiscovery
The Clearwell electronic data discovery solution is easily configured via an online step-by-step configuration guide. Moreover, the e-discovery product's web-based interface and up-to-the-second administrative pages make the Clearwell Intelligence Platform painless to administer.
No Impact to IT Infrastructure
Clearwell understands that content management systems are mission critical to your organization. As a result, the product's electronic data discovery architecture:
- Does not create yet another email or document repository
- Does not require the import, export, or moving of mailboxes or documents
- Does not reside in the path of email
- Does not require any software to be installed on desktops
eDiscovery Software Integration with Archive Systems
While archive vendors provide the ability to store and retrieve large volumes of documents, that still leaves teams of people spending days manually reviewing documents for legal e-discovery, corporate investigations, and regulatory inquiries. Electronic discovery solutions, such as Clearwell, offer a new class of e-discovery software which integrate with leading archiving solutions and enhance the value of these products. Organizations are, for the first time, able to perform e-discovery on the information stored in their archiving solutions.
