eDJ Brief: ModeOne @ Legal Week 2024

Matt Rasmussen ModeOne provides one of the few, possibly the only, technology for practical, selective preservation and collection of mobile content from busy corporate employees. For over a decade I have been proclaiming the need for eDiscovery workflows to address mobile device content. Beyond the technical challenges and extended time required to take full forensic images of custodial phones, the comingling [...]

ModeOne to Relativity – Devil is in the Details

At first glance I thought, “Fantastic! I have RelativityOne clients begging for this!” Last July ModeOne  announced a direct partnership with Exterro and it is good to know that their technology will be accessible for other platforms. However, it appears that it will only be available via the 3 service partners for the next 12-months. I will nail this down in my briefing [...]

M365 Roadmap & Purview at Relativity Fest 2023

The Microsoft 365 Purview product team was well represented at Relativity Fest with Nick Robinson, Caitlin Fitzgerald and Erica Toelle. Our briefing focused on recent Purview feature releases and how M365 customers are leveraging Purview eDiscovery despite many common market misconceptions. M365 and the Purview eDiscovery (Premium) features cover the majority of the ‘upstream’ EDRM model phases for many discovery usage cases. The actual [...]

Custodianship in a Collaborative Age

Preparing for David Horrigan's 'The e-Discovery State of the Union' at Relativity Fest 2023 nudged me to write an article that asks: "Has collaborative ESI broken the traditional concept of custodianship? Putting aside collaborative messaging ESI, collaborative ‘documents’ or workflows may challenge the traditional possession, custody or control tests for admission of evidence in legal proceedings. Beyond authentication, practitioners should assess and adapt their [...]

Why Microsoft 365 Is the Key Source for Corporate eDiscovery

In my bad old analyst days, I was frequently asked to draft ‘competitive analysis’ content like this for marketing teams worried about losing customers. It is relatively easy to highlight any product’s documented limitations, the trick is to recast them in an unsuitable usage scenario. Casepoint asserts that customers are using M365 Purview for the ‘whole eDiscovery process’. The Microsoft product team has [...]

M365 Selective Folder Retrievals – Still Not Easy

As usual Tony Redmond dives right into the M365 Powershell complexity to show how to selectively retrieve specific mailbox or SharePoint folders. While useful, it begs the question of why the folder names are not an addressable search property from the actual Content or eDiscovery Purview interfaces?  If you have retrieved the FolderID using this method you can search for that property via [...]

eDJ Brief: X1 Enterprise Collects Teams and More

The X1 Enterprise Collect Platform now indexes in-place and collects ESI from M365 Teams, OneDrive and SharePoint. While most other Microsoft partners utilize the Graph API to extend Microsoft’s Purview eDiscovery and compliance functionality, X1 execs John Patzakis and Kunjan Zaveri gave me a deep dive into the advantages offered by their ‘direct connector’ approach.

Executive Mobile Content Gone Rogue

In my experience, founders and C-level executives make the worst legal hold custodians. I have learned to review executive expense reports prior to supporting preservation interviews or issuing notices when possible. Too many execs shun email or messaging platforms that preserve communications. New generation technologies such as ModeOne can selectively preserve mobile via app or scheduled incremental collections while minimizing custodian impact. All too [...]

eDJ Brief: Veritas at LegalWeek 2023

Irfan Shuttari, Veritas Director of eDiscovery Strategy, briefed me on the new Veritas Alta unified cloud compliance and governance solution. When I joined the then Symantec PM team over two decades ago, it had been my dream to unify the solutions for universal discovery and governance in place. It looks like the enterprise team and technology are catching up to that dream now that [...]
