Autonomy ZANTAZ, a leader in the archiving, eDiscovery and policy management markets, (LSE: AU. or AU.L), today announced its unique ability to discover electronically stored information (ESI) in all virtual environments, including those powered by VMWare, further extending its lead in eDiscovery. In order for companies to be compliant with the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP), eDiscovery software must be able to find and hold all information relevant to litigation, including more complex file types such as virtual images, multimedia attachments, voice, video, IM and blackberry messages.
According to VMWare, 100% of the Fortune 100 and 20,000 corporate customers benefit from substantially lower IT costs, choice of operating systems, and a more automated and resilient systems infrastructure delivered by VMWare. When it comes to performing eDiscovery, these virtual environments are being overlooked due to complexities associated with the mapping, auditing and reporting duties under FRCP since an organization must be able to identify where the information is stored.
