National Data Conversion Delivers Index Engines’ Enterprise Discovery Platform to Reduce Discovery Processing of Tapes from Months to Hours

NEW YORK, N.Y., and HOLMDEL, N.J. — June 20, 2007 — National Data Conversion (NDC), a leader in electronic data conversion from backup tapes and optical disks, for litigation and compliance, and Index Engines, the leader in enterprise discovery solutions, today announced that NDC has joined Index Engines’ Litigation Ready™ Partner Program. This will allow NDC to further enhance its ability to provide customers with comprehensive media restoration and processing services, reducing the time required for the data discovery process to hours.
NDC offers the broadest array of backup tape restoration, data conversion and litigation data management services to a global clientele of law firms, eDiscovery service providers, corporations and governments. NDC saves its customers time and money when it comes to rapidly identifying and restoring electronic data, including email.
In January, NDA chose Index Engines’ Enterprise Discovery Platform as the “engine” behind NDC’s data discovery process. NDC uses the Index Engines technology as part of its pre-discovery processing to rapidly identify, access, and index historical information stored on tape. The Index Engines appliance automates information access and retrieval by streamlining online discovery and eliminating the need to restore offline tape content in order to view actionable data. Once tapes are indexed, the Index Engine query application is available to the client through the NDC VPN. Clients can query data in a secure environment, find what they need quickly and easily, and then make a request to NDC to restore the files and/or email.

“We’re thrilled to be a part of Index Engines’ Litigation Ready™ Partner Program,” said Chris Clark, chief operating officer, NDC. “We know Index Engines is a partner we can count on, and we can pass that confidence on to our clients. With Index Engines’ truly innovative approach to data discovery and unique positioning within the industry, we expect the Partner Program to be of great benefit to us as well as our customers.”

“We’re glad to have NDC on board with the eDiscovery Partner Program,” said Jim McGann, vice president of marketing, Index Engines. “NDC was the first company to recognize the power of our technology and they have embraced our technology and have already serviced a number of key projects with a significantly faster turnaround time.”

The Index Engines eDiscovery Partner Program has been designed to provide superior technology and resources for partners, including NDC, as they embrace the growing revenue opportunities in the high-demand market for eDiscovery. The program delivers compelling sales and marketing initiatives for lead generation, technology training, sales education and tools to assist during customer engagements.
