Latest Release of Viewpointe’s Information Governance Platform Improves ROI

New York - 4 February 2014

The OnPointe secure unified archive, improves content accessibility and overall business efficiency, resulting in lower eDiscovery spend 

Viewpointe®, a leading private cloud service provider to regulated industries, today announced the latest update of its  information governance platform, OnPointe®. The latest enhancements help organizations leverage existing corporate content to maximize business value and recognize higher returns on investment in information governance, including defensible disposition and comprehensive eDiscovery. These advancements, which include investigate-in-place intelligent indexing, improved “active file” version collection and enhanced proactive governance and archiving for enterprise repository content will be exhibited at LegalTech 2014 in New York.

OnPointe’s latest developments improve enterprise efficiency, while protecting organizations from costs and risks such as those associated with unmanaged data, unfettered storage growth and a reactive eDiscovery stance.  OnPointe can help an organization’s legal team streamline eDiscovery-related tasks, even investigation-based ad-hoc collection of custodian content.

The OnPointe enhancements include:

  • Investigate-in-Place and Intelligent Indexing: enables organizations to process and index content “in place.” Now a single early case assessment search can incorporate data from across the organization without moving or exporting content to provide a complete view of relevant enterprise content – all within one user interface. Only after in-place data is confirmed relevant to an investigation is it archived into the OnPointe platform for further analysis and review. OnPointe eDiscovery minimizes the risk, cost and business disruption associated with the discovery process while allowing the organization to execute proactive and ad-hoc collection, as necessary.
  • Improved Active File Collection: enables organizations to more efficiently govern and leverage content stored in file servers and collaborative storage repositories, including dark data that have become orphaned or dormant. Through OnPointe for File Shares business content stored on network drives, file shares, desktops, laptops and collaborative sites such as SharePoint®  is consistently analyzed for business value, archived and classified based on appropriate information governance policy.
  • Proactive Governance for Enterprise Content: provides advanced lifecycle capabilities to archive active or inactive content from leading ECM repositories such as FileNet and Documentum. OnPointe for Enterprise Applications enables organizations to decommission legacy repositories; therefore reducing or eliminating the high costs associated with aging infrastructure, technology refreshes, system enhancements, ongoing software maintenance, license renewals and non-deployed shelf ware. This secure unified archive, improves data accessibility and overall efficiency, resulting in lower eDiscovery spend.

“Unmanaged collaborative content is largely under-leveraged, presenting both untapped opportunity and governance risk that demand immediate attention,” said William Shute, Viewpointe senior vice president, corporate strategy and marketing. “The latest enhancements to our OnPointe platform are geared toward helping organizations take control of their data, and transform data risk into business leverage through advanced defensible processes, legal insight and compliance, as well as delivering seamless and scalable eDiscovery capabilities.”

With one of the largest national archives of digital information in the cloud, managing over 33 petabytes (PBs) of information, Viewpointe’s information governance platform, OnPointe, enables organizations to seamlessly manage their enterprise content, via its private cloud in a secure, scalable and cost-effective manner. OnPointe provides focused governance solutions for eDiscovery, messaging, file shares, print streams and enterprise applications.
