KNJ Partners with Index Engines to Deliver Innovative eDiscovery and Regulatory Compliance Strategies

By | Events, LegalTech, NEWS, Partnerships

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. Please contact KNJ’s Kirk Carter directly at 310-234-1001 or kirk@knj360.com, and Index Engines’ Michelle King at Michelle.King@IndexEngines.com.

L.A. Litigation Support Provider KNJ Group Inc. Consolidates E-Discovery Services On Lateral Data’s Viewpoint

By | LegalTech, NEWS, Partnerships

E-Discovery software leader Lateral Data, LP today announced that KNJ Group Inc., one of Los Angeles’ leading consulting and litigation support service providers, has standardized its e-Discovery services on Lateral Data’s Viewpoint™ technology platform. Using Viewpoint as its core application, KNJ Group will be able to unify the processing, review and production of electronically stored information for its law firm and corporate clients, of whom many are among the largest in the U.S.

Staffed by professionals with more than 20 years of experience, Santa Monica-based KNJ Group is highly regarded for its ability to leverage e-Discovery technology to address the unique needs of each of the firm’s clients. The company prides itself on monitoring changes in the fast-moving e-Discovery field, identifying and adopting solutions that can maximize both effectiveness and cost-savings.

“Electronic discovery gets more complex every day. That’s why our clients are excited about one-piece solutions with the bandwidth to solve problems quickly,” said Kirk M. Carter, President of KNJ Group Inc. “Lateral Data’s Viewpoint is a true innovation. It’s the most complete solution we have ever tested —not only because it executes all phases of e-Discovery, but gives the Consultant the ability to solve problems like data reintroduction, error files, de-nisting and other complex problems. In the legal field, time is the one commodity you can’t get more of—and Viewpoint will help us, and our clients, remove the delays to effective e-Discovery.”

Viewpoint, Lateral Data’s flagship product, is a licensed solution that facilitates virtually all the major components of the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) spectrum including collection and preservation of data, pre-processing, full processing, analysis, review and production. The product was developed over a seven year period of real-world use by a legal services company, giving it significant advantages in both core and convenience features over products developed by software companies not in the legal profession.

Featuring a familiar Outlook-style interface, Viewpoint can execute tasks at speeds two to five times that of other leading platforms. It delivers all the E-discovery tasks a service provider needs in a single package, enabling the user to do more with a dramatically smaller technology investment.

“KNJ Group’s prominence in the Southern California legal community is exceptional. Having it as a partner is a powerful testimony to the popularity of Viewpoint,” said Matt Berry, Founder and CEO of Lateral Data, LP. “We’re excited by the potential for increased exposure of Viewpoint to a whole new community of clients in Los Angeles and the entire Southland area.”

Viewpoint, now in Version 5.0, is currently available for licensing. Lateral Data will be exhibiting Viewpoint at LegalTech West, May 17-18 at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel. For more about Viewpoint, visit the company’s exhibit at Booth 512, log on to www.lateraldata.com, or call (877) 592-8585.
