CAMBRIDGE, England and PLEASANTON, California, October 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ZANTAZ, an Autonomy company (LSE: AU. and LSE: AU.L) and the leader in the archiving, eDiscovery and Proactive Information Risk Management (IRM) markets, today introduced the newest release of its industry-leading Enterprise Archive Solution version 6 (EAS 6), which is now powered by Autonomy's award-winning Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL). The archive software is the first of its kind to provide a single platform that enables intelligent information processing across both an enterprise's operational systems and archived data. EAS 6 gives companies the first and only consolidated archive for all information sources in more than 1,000 different data formats, including voice and videos, and across 100 languages stored in more than 400 different content repositories, including business applications such as SAP and Oracle. Highly scalable and secure, EAS has the ability to process data from tens of thousands of users across locations worldwide.
EAS 6 extends its market-renowned mailbox management capabilities by introducing new functionality including support for Microsoft 2007 technology and IBM Lotus Notes/Domino. In addition, this latest release significantly enhances storage optimization with advanced de-duplication and near-duplication capabilities, eliminating long-term retention of inconsequential information.
The EAS solution has helped hundreds of global companies to effectively comply with government regulations, such as the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, which dictates that all "electronically stored information" must be discoverable. These regulations have placed increasing pressure on companies to implement an effective archive solution that can be searchable across all information, not just email. EAS 6 provides real-time classification of corporate information, enabling the ability to set automatic legal holds on digital information. As a result, companies can apply the most appropriate rules for proactive prevention of information risk, and be confident in their level of preparedness in the event of litigation. In addition, retention periods no longer need to be set by arbitrary time periods, allowing judicious, well-informed decisions to be made based on the substance of the content.
Real-time policy management capabilities enable organizations to effectively meet industry regulations' compliance by automating the creation of corporate policies for information retention and disposition. This provides tight control over the management of data, allowing companies to dictate exactly what information is archived, where it is stored and for how long it is retained before disposition.
"Organizations are looking for solutions that help them understand the corporate value and legal significance hidden within their information, and facilitate the seamless processing of this content from initial search and collection all the way to eventual trial presentation," said Laura DuBois, senior research analyst, IDC. "The combination of EAS and IDOL aligns the e-Discovery workflow with actual user requirements across both operational and archived content, ultimately making it faster, easier and less costly for law firms and corporate counsel to identify and produce relevant content."
EAS 6 delivers unprecedented intelligence to the archive software through IDOL's ability to automatically understand the meaning of information and its relationships. Advanced conceptual search capabilities, including dynamic hyper-linking and categorization, as well as visualization tools enable organizations to gain more business insights from their information stored in both operational systems and archives. Users are also able to quickly and easily identify relevant content, spot unforeseen patterns, and establish connections among seemingly disparate documents and files.
"We accelerated the delivery of EAS 6 powered by IDOL in response to enormous demands from customers who are seeking a scalable, consolidated archive to manage and analyze all of their corporate information," said Steve King , CEO of Autonomy ZANTAZ. "IT can better serve Corporate Compliance and Legal professionals with the software's rich and intelligent analytic capabilities, which bring an unprecedented level of accuracy and efficiency from both archived and operational systems."
