Today, many organizations face overwhelming costs and burdens associated with responding to eDiscovery and legal hold demands. This is no surprise, given the incredible growth in corporate data – market research firm IDC predicts that the amount of data created and copied every year will reach 180 zettabytes in 2025. For reference, that looks like this: 180,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.
With so much data, it can be difficult to identify, preserve and collect all the data required for eDiscovery. At the same time, it’s never been more critical to be able to accurately collect data for legal matters. Since 2005, sanctions for spoliation of evidence have increased almost 300 percent. In 2015, the sanctions in one landmark case totaled nearly $1 million for repeated negligence in the eDiscovery process. In other words, outdated legal hold processes could wind up costing your company serious money.
Fortunately, Code42 has the legal hold capabilities that both the IT and Legal teams need. With Code42 already preserving all data on employee endpoints, litigation support personnel rapidly select custodians, apply policies and preserve data in place, with:
