Kazeon Upgrades eDiscovery Offerings

By Greg McNevin

December 12, 2007: eDiscovery solution provider Kazeon has just released a new version of its Information Access Platform and Information Server, claiming that it can now address a wide range of information beyond the data centre.

Kazeon says that its software can now handle email, laptops and desktops as well as data centres and remote offices with federation capabilities, enabling companies to undertake proactive and reactive eDiscovery, litigation support, information security & privacy, compliance and storage optimisation from within a single software platform.

Information Server is actually available in two new versions, namely the Data Center and Remote Office editions, and with the new additions Kazeon claims it has the broadest set of email discovery and analysis capabilities in the industry, including native connectivity to Microsoft Exchange servers, Symantec Enterprise Vault, Microsoft Exchange and more.

“Kazeon has been a terrific partner to Plan B Technologies, Inc. and their innovative products continue to impress our customers," said Steve Taylor, Chief Technology Officer of Plan B Technologies, Inc. "Kazeon has made dramatic refinements and improvements to an already terrific product. They've added new management and performance features as well as email reporting and archival

The launch of Kazeon’s new software has also been complimented with a benchmark report from ESG Lab, the testing division of the Enterprise Strategy Group, which claims that Information Server has an industry-leading price per document ratio of less than one cent per document, and the ability to crawl, index and search at AU$4,864 per terabyte.

“ESG Research indicates that the worldwide capacity of electronically stored content will exceed 23,000 petabytes by 2010. The ‘dollars per document’ pricing of existing solutions is unsupportable with this quantity of information,” said Tony Palmer from ESG Lab.

“A scalable solution that can bring these costs down to less than $.01 per document will enable organizations to implement intelligent indexing, classification, search and actions across all their ESI.”
