eDJ Brief: Binfer.com – What is your Deliver SLA?

I had a good briefing with Binfer’s head of sales, Nate Van Drunen, earlier this week. Binfer.com provides secured (AES 256) direct transfer of large files. I have spent this week back in the client trenches subbing in for a lit support manager. That has been a timely reminder of the transferring ever larger collections to providers and firms. Really savvy techs can navigate [...]

Is Categorization the Key to Cleaning Your Data Garage?

Way back in 2006 I was part of the Symantec team evaluating the Orchestria classification engine for a potential acquisition (CA later bought them). While the security folks were all focused on DLP, I wanted to use Symantec’s anti-virus root kit to classify unstructured files on local and network shares. They were my nemesis in my prior corporate litsupport director role. As Autonomy found [...]

Ipro Turning Upstream?

Ipro quietly acquired NetGovern in July. This feels like a move to differentiate themselves from the cluster of Relativity competitors that have been slowly losing market share. I am all for moving upstream and building solutions that enable corporate legal to take ownership of their eDiscovery workflow. It will be interesting to see how this shakes out given Ipro’s relatively dated architecture.

Microsoft Is Moving Your Teams Meeting Recordings

This is a follow-up to my recent blog on the new Teams meeting recording functionality and the potential eDiscovery impact you may encounter. Because this information was only sent to M365 admins and I could not find a public announcement, the link is to a public board where another kind techie posted the message content. If you are not tracking M365 announcements, major change [...]

Connectors are Key to Unified Data Management

Many years ago as a product manager at Symantec (now Veritas again), I advocated for the acquisition of Globanet because they were a key partner in so many of our compliance-eDiscovery deals. The Veritas Compliance Portfolio covers the core enterprise unstructured data sources (file shares, Office365, Box, Exchange, SharePoint and many more) with a variety of solutions. Their eDiscovery Platform even does remote laptop [...]

Time to Update Your WhatsApp Usage Policy Again

When is a business chat a record? That question has plagued my consulting practice since I first collected and processed native email for a client back in 1993. Now your policies, protocols and security controls have to address multiple chat apps that support ‘vapormail’ disappearing messages. WhatsApp adds this capability to over 2 BILLION users. When you add FaceBook, Instagram, Signal, Viber and WeChat [...]

Auto Populated Data Map, The Feature That Took 16 Years

Back in 2004, Exterro and PSS Atlas were the only COTS data map solutions in the eDiscovery market. For decades they have relied on data source owners to enter or update the record entries. I have helped clients build scheduled imports from IT asset and other systems. I have no idea how these two products have survived 16 years without the ability to scan [...]

Preserving the Context of Privileged Communications

The article is a long and rather scholarly coverage of the evolution of the communication privilege. It brings up a couple interesting issues for retention policies and classification systems. First is the need to retain the actual communication wrapper for legal work product to preserve privilege. The proliferation of online meetings, chat and collaboration channels are generally considered informal communications and not addressed by [...]

Yet Another O365 Data Source – Meeting Transcriptions

With a majority of our key employees working remotely via Zoom meetings, conference calls and various chat platforms Microsoft has just added automatic transcription functionality to user’s online Word application. This functionality enables users to convert previously recorded or live audio into a pretty good transcript that differentiates between speakers and has an associated xml file with the segment times. Tech savvy users have [...]
