MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – Mar. 6, 2012 – Symantec Corp. (Nasdaq: SYMC) today announced that Autodesk, Inc., a leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software, has selected Symantec’s Clearwell eDiscovery Platform for in-house eDiscovery. Autodesk’s legal and IT teams will use Clearwell to gain greater control over the eDiscovery process, leveraging the solution to streamline eDiscovery procedures from legal hold through review and production in order to significantly reduce the time, resources and costs of eDiscovery.
“With Symantec’s Clearwell platform, we are able to achieve significant cost savings and gain greater control over our eDiscovery processes,” said Lisa Turbis, senior corporate counsel at Autodesk. “We selected Clearwell because it provides the unique ability to handle many of our requirements in a single platform. This eliminates the complexity often associated with eDiscovery procedures while reducing the time and resources needed to implement a successful eDiscovery strategy.”
Symantec’s Clearwell eDiscovery Platform is the leading enterprise eDiscovery solution that helps organizations manage legal and regulatory matters with a single application. Using Clearwell, Autodesk can fully meet legal obligations by implementing a defensible legal hold workflow, then focus the collection of potentially relevant data across the organization through federated search-enabled keyword collection. Collected data is further reduced using the platform’s intelligent processing and culling capabilities. Autodesk’s legal team can significantly accelerate early case assessment with Clearwell’s sophisticated analytics including Transparent Search and discussion threads, as well as achieve cost-effective and defensible review through the solution’s comprehensive review capabilities. As a result, organizations like Autodesk can defensibly streamline the end-to-end eDiscovery process. The Clearwell eDiscovery Platform is further complimented by Symantec’s suite of intelligent information governance solutions, enabling organizations to bridge the gap between business, legal, and IT to reduce their risks and costs and work freely in a connected world.
“eDiscovery can be a complex and expensive process for any organization but particularly for large global enterprises experiencing today’s growth in electronically stored information on a magnified scale,” said Kurt Leafstrand, director of product management, Symantec Corp. “To proactively prepare for this emerging need, companies like Autodesk are implementing Symantec’s Clearwell eDiscovery Platform in-house to automate collections, perform strategic early case assessments, and gain greater control over the eDiscovery process. Symantec is pleased to help Autodesk build an in-house eDiscovery process and benefit from significant return on investment.”
