Nuix has adapted their eDiscovery Engine for a variety of cloud computing infrastructures and hosted platforms, including Office365, allowing processing within cloud environments without the need either download it or transfer it behind a firewall.
CEO of Nuix, Eddie Sheey, said: “As more organisations move their data to the cloud, it will become essential to conduct eDiscovery and investigative searches in the cloud, alongside data.”
The company has developed a range of virtual instances of the Nuix Engine to assign eDiscovery tasks individually. This capability is currently only available on MS Windows Azure and Amazon’s AWS cloud infrastructures, although the recently launched Google Compute is also working to develop a similar environment.
Nuix offers a suite of powerful, integrated tools that streamline the entire eDiscovery process, including legal hold, collection, processing, culling search, first-pass review and production export. Their forensically-precise processing and workflow automation tools are built on their patented Nuix Engine, delivering a cost-effective service and a reduction in manual tasks and human error, which is scaled from small to large matters on a single platform.
Sheehy added: “Courts are rejecting the argument that discovery is an undue burden even in Big Data cases that involve hundreds of terabytes or more. Unless you can apply massive processing power to digital evidence in the cloud where it is stored, even with relatively small volumes of data, meeting deadlines at a reasonable cost is impossible.”
