    BERLIN - November 02, 2011 -

    At Momentum, the EMC Information Intelligence Group's global user conference, EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC) today announced the immediate availability of EMC® SourceOne™ eDiscovery — Kazeon 4.6, an integrated solution that helps corporations, legal service providers, law firms and consultants more efficiently and cost effectively provide eDiscovery, litigation support and other event-driven investigations.

    New Features:
    • Predefined and Customized Persona and Role Management: Predefined and customizable personas for IT administrator, legal/investigation liaison, and attorney/lead investigation, help these users accelerate time to deployment, and optimize case and investigation management.
    • Any Time, In-Place Investigation: Analyze, preserve and categorize information in-place at any time. Organizations with global operations can preserve and categorize electronically stored information (ESI) before collection to meet event-driven investigations in accordance with ordinances such as the European Privacy Act and Bribery Act.

    With this release, Kazeon delivers advanced ECA capabilities, simplified eDiscovery and expanded event driven investigations to address today's global Information Governance challenges. The continuous growth and complexity of ESI, combined with the need to rapidly and accurately respond to discovery and investigation requirements, dictate a comprehensive approach to governance for organizations of all sizes.

    According to the recent IDC Marketscape report titled, "Worldwide Standalone Early Case Assessment (ECA) Applications 2011 Vendor Analysis," more corporate litigants will look to advances in analytics and business process technologies to realize process efficiencies and enhance eDiscovery strategy response planning as the average corpus sizes per matter continue to grow.
