451 Research Report on AccessData’s AD eDiscovery and Summation
AccessData’s roots are in forensics, going back many years, and one of the points made by David Horrigan is that “there are real advantages to getting a review platform from from your data forensics provider”. David Horrigan draws attention to the integration of Summation into AD eDiscovery, enabling AccessData to cover the eDiscovery process from legal hold through collection, to data and case assessment and into review.
Summation comes in two forms, Express for entry-level and Pro for enterprise eDiscovery. In addition to the forensic strengths which you would expect from AccessData’s roots, it has a paid a lot of attention to collection stored on mobile devices with its MPE+ Mobile Phone Examiner product.
AccessData will be at LegalTech where there will be an opportunity to see the full range of eDiscovery products.
