Autonomy ZANTAZ Announces Industry's First Electronic Discovery of VMWare Virtual Environments

CAMBRIDGE, England and PLEASANTON, California, February 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Autonomy ZANTAZ, a leader in the archiving, eDiscovery and policy management markets, (LSE: AU.) or (LSE: AU.L), today announced its unique ability to discover electronically stored information (ESI) in all virtual environments, including those powered by VMWare, further extending its lead in eDiscovery. In order for companies to be compliant with the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP), eDiscovery software must be able to find and hold all information relevant to litigation, including more complex file types such as virtual images, multimedia attachments, voice, video, IM and blackberry messages.

According to VMWare, 100% of the Fortune 100 and 20,000 corporate customers benefit from substantially lower IT costs, choice of operating systems, and a more automated and resilient systems infrastructure delivered by VMWare. When it comes to performing eDiscovery, these virtual environments are being overlooked due to complexities associated with the mapping, auditing and reporting duties under FRCP since an organization must be able to identify where the information is stored.

Autonomy ZANTAZ's Introspect software enables customers to quickly and accurately survey, assess and discover all information in virtual environments, without the manual and complicated process of logging into each virtual server environment to search the contents. Introspect's Collector module can simultaneously search multiple virtual file servers running multiple operating systems, enabling native file ingestion of content relevant to litigation. This provides substantial savings in time and effort to organizations' eDiscovery initiatives and increases their ability to be FRCP compliant.

"Virtualization has been widely adopted by many of our customers to increase the utilization and flexibility of their hardware but it further complicates eDiscovery processes," said Mike Lynch , CEO of Autonomy. "As part of a company's efforts to be FRCP compliant, legal teams need to search all electronic information and can no longer fall back on the excuse of virtualization environments like VMWare being too difficult to search. Autonomy delivers packaged eDiscovery software that can search virtual environments for real-time early case assessment and eDiscovery review and production."
