Index Engines, the leader in enterprise discovery technology, and global expert advisory firm LECG (NASDAQ: XPRT), today announced their technology partnership.

The combination of Index Engines market leading data discovery technology and LECG’s expert services will bring the best of breed solutions to the eDiscovery market.

As part of the Index Engines/LECG partnership, Index Engines Unified Discovery Platform, winner of the LTN Gold Best New Product of 2009, is integrated into LECG’s DiscoverC3 (DC3) solutions. DC3 is strategic solution for enterprise eDiscovery initiatives. Propelled by LECGs long standing industry expertise, and supported by Index Engines market leading technology, DC3 solutions address the complexities of cost, compliance and communication surrounding enterprise information management and provide the know-how and tools to enable corporate eDiscovery.

The Index Engines Unified Discovery Platform indexes ESI from all storage containers for comprehensive discovery. Enterprise data existing on networks, hard drives, even backup tapes is efficiently indexed, deduplicated, searched, managed and extracted through one powerful interface. The Unified Discovery Platform integrates high speed indexing into existing infrastructure that is non-invasive and highly efficient. Terabytes of data on network file servers can be processed at unprecedented speeds of  1TB per hour. Only Index Engines makes information locked away on historical backup tapes easily accessible - without the need to restore the content. One platform seamlessly indexes, searches and separates the relevant content from the mass of enterprise data, regardless of location, format or age.
