Santa Monica-based eDiscovery consultancy adds Index Engines’ direct indexing and culling ability to streamline its litigation workflow by creating a fast, powerful and defensible process for managing and reviewing ESI.

Santa Monica, CA – January 28, 2014 – KNJ, Inc. (KNJ), a full-service electronic discovery consulting firm announced today that it has partnered with Index Engines, a leader in enterprise information management and archiving solutions, to enhance KNJ’s regulatory compliance, early case assessment (ECA) and eDiscovery workflow with a customized integration of Index Engines’ Catalyst and Octane platforms.

Index Engines offers the fastest indexing products on the market—at processing speeds of up to 1 terabyte per hour—with robust search capabilities and audit trail reporting, which will be instrumental in defensibly transforming raw “big data” into manageable review datasets in record time.

Index Engines’ platforms, which can be deployed from behind a client’s firewall, the cloud or a virtual environment, can index and search data from any digital source for regulatory compliance and eDiscovery purposes at unprecedented speed and efficiency. In addition, these tools have the ability to search often troublesome media such as backup tapes, forensic images, Microsoft Exchange databases and partially corrupted files.

“We are thrilled to work with Index Engines and their powerful indexing tools because they will allow us to deliver creative strategies that will help to produce lean, responsive datasets for review within a remarkable time frame,” said KNJ Founder Kirk Carter. “In addition, the Catalyst and Octane platforms will enable KNJ to provide a more comprehensive offering, including information management solutions, to assist clients at the earliest stage of regulatory compliance and discovery.”

The addition of Index Engines’ Catalyst (for information governance and litigation readiness) and Octane (for ECA) to KNJ’s innovative eDiscovery toolbox, results in a host of strategic solutions that will deliver invaluable efficiencies to three major market segments: corporate, law firm and government clients.

For organizations facing heightened concerns surrounding the growth and management of big data, KNJ’s expanded offering will alleviate the burdens imposed when very large volumes of native files need to be produced quickly and efficiently.

“KNJ shares Index Engines’ philosophy of not only handling eDiscovery requests with unmatched speed and defensibility, but also preventing eDiscovery surprises with information governance and policy audits with proper archiving,” Index Engines Vice President Jim McGann said. “We’re excited to work with KNJ and look forward to many successful projects with them.”

Representatives from KNJ and Index Engines (booth #1315) will attend this year’s LegalTech conference, February 4 – 6 at the Hilton New York in Manhattan, and are available for private meetings and demonstrations.
