eDiscovery for Google Drive
Google Docs and Google Drive make for a very powerful combination. These tools allow your enterprise to create, collaborate, and work on documents from any device, anywhere in the world. However, Google Docs and Google Drive do not provide any eDiscovery functionality beyond rudimentary search.
About Simflofy eDiscovery for Google DriveSimflofy eDiscovery for Google Drive provides organizations to perform the first three stages of the EDRM model. Organizations can identify responsive content, collect the content, and preserve the content by applying legal holds. Simflofy allows designated users with the appropriate permissions to search across Google Drive for responsive content to the eDiscovery request.
Content can be searched and filtered by date, metadata, content type, subject, filename, and much more. The responsive content can then be collected and shared for further culling with other parties. When the content has been culled, the remaining content can be preserved by applying a legal hold.
Frequently asked questions about eDiscovery for Google Drive.
1- Why do I need eDiscovery for Google Drive?
As file-sharing systems like Google Drive become the replacement for network drives, the growth of content on these systems is exploding. Much like the network drive, there is little control over what is being saved. Human Resources, intellectual property, merger and acquisition, personally identifiable information, and much more are being stored in Google Drive and are a source of discoverable content. Simflofy eDiscovery provides organizations the capability to search for, collect and preserve content stored in Google Drive.
2- Can I apply more than one legal hold to the content?
Simflofy eDiscovery allows multiple legal holds to be applied to content. Responsive content may be relevant for more than one eDiscovery request and should not be able to be destroyed or deleted until it isn’t part of a request.
3- Can content be edited while on hold?
Simflofy allows an organization to configure this, some organizations want just a version of the content locked while others want the content itself to be locked and un-editable.
4- Can collected and preserved content be imported into an eDiscovery Review tool?
Simflofy provides the capability to export collected and preserved content in the EDRM XML format which can then be imported into a review tool.
5- Can Simflofy search across systems other than Google Drive?
Simflofy provides integration with over 55+ systems including ECM, email, File Sharing, ERP, and databases for responsive content.
