Chain of custody records are maintained from collection through production, and metadata is stored on a separate SQL server database, completely unaltered. Your data remains in the software throughout the life cycle of the case and is fully auditable at every stage, from processing through analysis and review, to production.

NeedleFinder Processing Functionality

The advanced accuracy of our proprietary e-discovery software, NeedleFinder®,minimizes omissions and potential errors. It is Unicode compliant and supports foreign language processing, as well as over 3,000 file types. Email is supported in its native format. During processing NeedleFinder can:

  • Process Lotus Notes NSF files
  • Remove “known files” such as system files
  • De-NIST – identify and remove files with no evidentiary value
  • De-Dupe within or across custodians
  • Keyword search and/or date filter in processing
  • Identify families and conversations based on a hash algorithm

NeedleFinder utilizes the National Software Reference Library database and is capable of identifying over 10 million commonly known files. Its patented design maintains logs for auditing and defensibility.

“We took 500 GB's down to 1 GB. I think that shows the power of NeedleFinder.”
