Sonian Advanced Search Makes e-Discovery Fast and Simple

Google-like search capabilities find desired emails and documents within seconds, not days; cut the cost of information retrieval for litigation

Online PR News – 26-March-2010 – – NEEDHAM, MA, December 15, 2009 –– Sonian, Inc., the trusted cloud-powered universal data management company, today announced full e-discovery support and advanced search capabilities as native components of its Cloud-powered email archiving and e-discovery service. Sonian ensures litigation readiness should the need arise while it simultaneously reduces storage costs, improves overall email server performance, meets compliance requirements and delivers a quick, easy and secure end-user experience.

Sonian Advanced Search features a web-based interface that conducts full searches across text and attachments with Google-like speed to find desired items within seconds. By tracking conversations going back years, finding every email on any specified topic and meeting discovery requests in seconds, it makes e-discovery fast and simple. Searches can easily be conducted by legal or compliance staff from a web-browser interface with results in just a few hours.

In the case of impending lawsuits, Sonian allows users to define a litigation hold for each legal case and protect relevant data from deletion indefinitely. Using the web-based user interface, legal counsel or IT can search for relevant messages and copy them to a hold folder where they remain for as long as the hold is in effect.

“Under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP), all corporate email can be requested for legal discovery. Failing to enforce a consistent retention policy and being unprepared to produce email data within very tight timelines may result in a presumption of guilt, cost millions in fines or settlements and damage credibility,” said George Nichols, CEO of Sonian, Inc. “Sonian allows businesses to comply with the FRCP requirements, apply litigation holds and easily meet e-discovery requests without paying for unnecessary features or placing additional demands on IT.”
