Its solutions and services also retroactively identify acts which result in unauthorized use of computer or network resources, service obstruction, and unintentional disclosure of information. eDiscovery Business The company’s eDiscovery solutions and services enable the preservation, processing, review and production of electronically stored information (ESI). Its solutions copy electronic data from personal computers, servers, mobile devices, Website and various types of storage; search and identify relevant documents and evidence with technology assisted review driven by KIBIT technology, its artificial intelligence technology; permit the inspection of evidence and online hosting for review and translation; and produce the final disclosure of evidence in the court-requested format.

Lit i View, the company’s online eDiscovery software powered by KIBIT, makes it possible for corporate customers and outside counsel to review electronic evidence. Lit i View is designed to ensure that only necessary information is disclosed through a disclosure approval process undertaken by assigned lawyers. The inherent risk of information leakage in an eDiscovery process is a concern for enterprises. Using Lit i View, only those files identified as containing evidence are hosted to the company’s inspection servers, and the remainder of the information is stored in its local secure data centers at many places in the world to ensure the safety and confidentiality of critical data. The company performs paper based evidence discovery by scanning and subsequently digitizing the documents, utilizing Optical Character Recognition techniques.
