SCOTTSDALE, AZ and MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Oct 21, 2009 -- Informative Graphics Corporation (IGC), a leader in viewing, collaboration and redaction technology, today announced a new strategic partnership with Clearwell Systems, a leader in intelligent e-discovery.
Clearwell has integrated IGC's Brava! Enterprise viewer and Redact-It electronic redaction technology into the Clearwell E-Discovery Platform version 5.0. By automating the processing, analysis, review, and production of Electronically Stored Information (ESI), the Clearwell E-Discovery Platform enables enterprises and law firms to accelerate early case assessments, effectively cull-down data, increase reviewer productivity, and ensure the defensibility of the entire e-discovery process. With Clearwell's new Review and Production Modules, users can now electronically redact sensitive data such as privileged information, Social Security numbers, minors' names, addresses, etc., and then produce redacted renditions of the documents as TIFFs or text-searchable PDFs.
"The integration of IGC and Clearwell products shows the true benefits of incorporating native viewing, intelligent redaction and configurable production of documents," said Jeff Herding, VP of Sales for IGC. "Clearwell's E-Discovery Platform represents a new gold standard in e-discovery solutions, and we are very pleased that Brava and Redact-It are part of that offering."
"Many organizations are looking to perform the entire e-discovery process in a single product, versus having to physically move case data across multiple disparate tools," said Venkat Rangan, co-founder and chief technology officer at Clearwell Systems. "Through integration of IGC's technology into the Clearwell E-Discovery Platform, we are offering the ability to complete native review, intelligent redaction, and production of electronic evidence. As a result, Clearwell customers can now complete all the phases of e-discovery on their collected evidence seamlessly in a single, integrated product."
