Exterro Partners With Hitachi Data Systems to Address Growing Need for Integrated E-Discovery and Information Governance Technologies

Exterro to Showcase the New Integration This Week at LegalTech New York 2012 (January 30, 2012)

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 01/30/12 -- Exterro® Inc., the leading provider of workflow-driven electronic discovery software, today announced its partnership with Hitachi Data Systems (HDS). Exterro and HDS are partnering to address the growing need of today's corporate legal and IT departments for integrated e-discovery and information governance technologies. The integration of Exterro Fusion® with the Hitachi Data Discovery Suite will deliver a powerful, unified solution for seamlessly managing legal compliance requirements and e-discovery.

"For many corporations, information governance and e-discovery remain fragmented, disparate processes. By integrating the technologies used to manage regulatory compliance and e-discovery, organizations can significantly drive down costs, improve efficiencies and mitigate risks," said Jim FitzGerald, Exterro's director of product marketing and strategic alliances. "We are partnering with Hitachi Data Systems to help legal and IT teams tackle the complex challenges posed by compliance and litigation requirements. The integration of Exterro Fusion with the Hitachi Data Discovery Suite will provide significant benefits to our joint customers."

Key benefits achieved with the integrated Exterro and HDS technologies include:

  • Automated Preservation - Exterro Fusion complements the HDS information governance offerings by orchestrating preservation and document retention requests from e-discovery and legal records management teams.
  • Expedited Early Case Assessment (ECA), Collection and Data Culling - Clients can proactively index and manage information through the HDS platform, then leverage Exterro Fusion for federated searching and ESI collections. With results directly input into the Hitachi Data Discovery Suite, legal teams can significantly accelerate ECA, collection and culling of electronic evidence.
  • Mapping of Key Evidence - Exterro's Fusion Genome® data mapping application profiles the frequency and risk of unmanaged data sources involved in litigation, so they can be prioritized for more active management in the Hitachi Content Platform, the object store by Hitachi Data Systems, and other active information governance products from HDS as compliance and legal requirements demand.
  • Access to All Enterprise Data - Leveraging the connectors in Exterro's Fusion Zeta™ application, clients will gain access to many corporate data sources that may not yet actively be managed in Hitachi Data Discovery Suite, including laptops, desktops, content management systems or web-based collaboration tools.

"As electronic data continues to grow at explosive rates, corporations are struggling to establish defensible processes to efficiently and cost-effectively respond to e-discovery requests and minimize the impact on internal IT resources caused by compliance requirements," said Asim Zaheer, vice president, corporate and product marketing, Hitachi Data Systems. "With Exterro, we combine the advanced search and storage capabilities in the Hitachi Data Discovery Suite with the advanced workflow-driven, scalable architecture in Fusion to help customers achieve greater efficiency, defensibility and repeatability."

Exterro is exhibiting this week at LegalTech New York 2012, which is taking place at the New York Hilton. To learn more about the Exterro-Hitachi partnership, visit Exterro's booth (#331) or
