Kroll Ontrack Launches E-mail Investigation and Analytics Software

  • 12 March, 2008 07:15

<p>Sydney – March 12, 2008 – Kroll Ontrack®, the industry’s leading provider of data recovery and legal technologies products and services, today announced the Australian launch of its Ontrack® Firstview™ 2.0 e-mail investigation and analytics software.</p>
<p>Ontrack Firstview 2.0 supports legal and IT teams by offering advanced search and in-depth reporting capabilities to fast track the identification of significant e-mail communications in internal investigations and litigation. In addition, proprietary concept search, advanced visualisation and reporting technology, help to minimise e-discovery costs by reducing the volume of information processed.</p>
<p>“Electronic communication and e-mail have become one of the leading components of internal corporate investigations and civil litigation in Australia today. Ultimately, our technology provides investigators with a snapshot of e-mail communications by quickly pointing them towards the most pertinent information and determining whether an incident of employee misconduct has occurred and if further action is required,” said Adrian Briscoe, General Manager for Asia Pacific, Kroll Ontrack.</p>
<p>Specifically, Ontrack Firstview’s advanced search functionality and reporting capabilities permits faster identification of critical e-mail messages allowing legal teams to demonstrate conclusions through:</p>
<p>• Conceptual Searching – Enables users to enter a keyword or phrase and obtain items that contain concepts related to that term, delivering faster and more accurate results than conventional searches because of the technology’s ability to identify associated terms and concepts, even if they do not match any words in the query.</p>
<p>• Graphic Visualisation – Displays communication lines between internal and external people and enables users to establish the timeline for the events giving rise to the investigation or suit.</p>
<p>• Advanced Visualisation – Demonstrates, at a high level view, what topics and themes the messages contain and how they relate to each other, ultimately revealing connections that might have not been apparent using other review and analysis tools.</p>
<p>• Advanced Reporting – Provides legal and IT departments with the ability to output key information and comprehensive analytic graphs or charts in an easily readable format, aiding users in demonstrating conclusions and findings to corporate executives, opposing parties or judges at the end of an analysis or anywhere along the way.</p>
<p>“Today, most IT departments conduct e-mail investigations manually with the same systems used to create the e-mail communication. As a result, the case strategy and discovery is often slow and arduous. Ontrack Firstview’s advanced search and visualisation technology not only makes the investigation of Microsoft Exchange and IBM Lotus Notes e-mails and case strategy formulation flow more quickly and logically, but also increases the speed and accuracy of the decisions that individuals make with respect to e-mail, because like documents are automatically grouped together. With Ontrack Firstview, users can determine the who, what, where and when of a potential case very quickly,” added Briscoe.</p>
<p>Supporting the two largest e-mail platforms, Microsoft® Exchange™ and IBM® Lotus Notes™, Ontrack Firstview 2.0 can be deployed rapidly as no additional hardware infrastructure is required. For more information about Ontrack Firstview 2.0 visit</p>
