BOXBOROUGH, MA, March 01, 2010—Digital Reef (www.digitalreefinc.com), a leading software provider of the first massively scalable, eDiscovery and information governance platform, today announced that Legal Inc – a leading UK-based litigation support and technology consultancy – has adopted Digital Reef as a key element of its end-to-end case management solution.
“With organizations seeing an increase not just in litigation but in regulatory investigations and inquiries, the emphasis is on proactively preparing for such an eventuality rather than reactively panicking when the knock at the door comes,” say Legal Inc’s co-founders and directors Lisa Burton and Dipak Patel. “With data estates sized in petabytes, and much of it unstructured, General Counsels need a proven means to get ‘order out of chaos’ and move to that desired state of ‘litigation readiness’. Digital Reef can drive that transformation in a timely, cost-effective and efficient manner and we’ve yet to see a comparable solution challenge it.”
Legal Inc chose Digital Reef for its end-to-end eDiscovery solution due to the platform’s scale and ease of deployment. Legal Inc will use Digital Reef to more efficiently support clients with large data volumes and diverse data types. Digital Reef is capable of processing as much as ten terabytes per day for certain collections of electronically stored information, making it an ideal choice for service providers needing to handle large amounts of ESI. Digital Reef also natively supports processing of complex file types like forensic disk images and other image files – data that would normally need to be sent to a separate tool for processing and thus diminish efficiency.
“As business goes global so does litigation and eDiscovery,” stated Larry D’Angelo, Digital Reef’s VP of Sales. “Partnering with Legal Inc allows Digital Reef to expand coverage to handle US and international client needs. It pleases us that a highly respected provider like Legal Inc has chosen Digital Reef to complete its eDiscovery offering.”
