In our experience working with corporate and legal counsel we find that companies make two crucial errors with electronically stored information (ESI) that is not only expensive but it also increases the risk of spoliation. The first problem arises from many companies involvement in multiple litigations which must often use the same relevant ESI. In a well thought out world the ESI needed for each of these matters would be collected and preserved once. Unfortunately this usually does not happen, requiring the companies to repeat the collection and preservation of the ESI multiple times. This is expensive.
The second problem is that many companies have much of their archived data on tape and cannot easily access it to satisfy discovery requests. Recovering data from tape can not only be expensive but also time consuming and prevents responding to discovery requests in a timely manner.
Both scenarios are costly and, if not resolved, can lead to spoliation of the data. Having a solution that allows all relevant ESI to be securely stored and easily accessed is necessary.
VeDISCOVERY™ has created VeRESTORE™ for clients looking to avoid the costs associated with multiple collections, processing and review of the same data, thereby decreasing spoliation risks and the expense of multiple litigations.
In addition, VeRESTORE, also provides a tape backup restoration solution, enabling organizations to proactively consolidate its ESI, both current or previously collected, into an easily accessible, secure web-enabled data depository.
In essence, VeRESTORE allows corporations to restore archived and unstructured tape backup data into the VeHOLD™ ‘data bank’ where organizations can store, and continuously update, all ESI previously collected, processed and reviewed; thereby avoiding the costs and potential pitfalls of re-collecting data from the same servers, PC’s, back-up tapes or other potential sources.
VeRESTORE services preserve relevant, historical data in a SaaS model in the cloud so clients do not have a large up-front deployment cost and only have to pay for what they use.
