Kroll Ontrack announces enhanced suite of advanced search technology products

Introducing e-mail threading and near duplicate identification capabilities, Ontrack Engenium provides the most comprehensive collection of advanced search technology available today

Minneapolis – June 24, 2009 – Kroll Ontrack®, the industry's largest provider of paper and electronic discovery, computer forensics and electronically stored information (ESI) consulting, jury consulting, and courtroom presentation services, today announced it enhanced its award-winning suite of Ontrack® Engenium® Advanced Search Technology products to now include e-mail threading and near duplicate identification modules. With the addition of these new capabilities, Kroll Ontrack is the first search technology provider to offer concept search, topic grouping, near duplicate identification and e-mail threading module engines in a single advanced search product suite.

The leading-edge near duplicate detection and e-mail threading identification technology from Ontrack Engenium enables companies to improve the consistency and intelligence of their document search platforms by providing meaningful content grouping capabilities to their products and end users. By facilitating the consistent treatment of similar documents into near duplicate sets and e-mail threads, end users reduce the time and cost associated with culling through large volumes of potentially responsive data for investigation or litigation.

Utilizing the e-mail threading module, users can quickly view all related e-mail, sent and received, in a conversation thread while identifying the "Start-Point" and "End-Point" of each e-mail chain chronologically. This provides critical context and reduces the number of e-mails requiring review and the amount of time needed to make responsiveness decisions about e-mails. Concurrently, the near duplicate identification module provides patented search technology to intelligently group near duplicate documents in a data set that differ from each other by only a few words or paragraphs. This enables the consistent treatment of similar documents, saving time and lowering litigation risks during the document review process.

"The economic downturn has forced companies to become even more efficient and cost effective in order to remain competitive," said Dave Chaplin, vice president of Advanced Search Technologies for Kroll Ontrack. "These new technology modules from Ontrack Engenium complement a single-source suite of comprehensive, intelligent search technology to provide companies and their employees with solutions to better compete in today's marketplace by optimizing the information location process."

The Ontrack Engenium Advanced Search Technology product suite is highly scalable to any platform and our expert consultants ensure the seamless integration of features to best fit corporations and their product development needs.
