Digital Reef Teams With Microsoft Partner FAST To Tame Unstructured Data

Partnership will provide FAST ESP and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 customers with "out-of-the-box" capabilities to support e-discovery, compliance, Office SharePoint Server 2007 management, data security, and storage initiatives

BOXBOROUGH, Mass., May 19, 2009—Digital Reef (www.digitalreefinc.com), developer of the first massively scalable unstructured data management platform, today announces a technology collaboration with FAST, a Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) subsidiary and the leading global provider of search technologies. By working with FAST, Digital Reef will provide FAST ESP and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 customers with "out-of-the-box" capabilities to support eDiscovery, compliance, Office SharePoint Server 2007 management, data security, and storage initiatives. The combined solution includes a user interface that provides a single, actionable view across all data stores, allowing users to easily locate, understand, and leverage enterprise information.

"We rely on our partners to build vertical functionality on top of our powerful search technology," stated Nate Treloar, Principal Search Technology Evangelist of FAST/Microsoft. "In the case of Digital Reef, their unstructured data management platform complements our goal of making search actionable by extending FAST and Office SharePoint Server 2007 with powerful tools that target critical enterprise challenges like eDiscovery."

FAST's enterprise search platform provides a customizable foundation for elevating an organization's search capabilities. The collaboration augments those facilities with Digital Reef's powerful data analysis tools for addressing critical enterprise challenges like eDiscovery. Organizations with discovery challenges must not only find all documents related to a particular issue, they must be able to cull this dataset down to only those documents which are responsive (relevant). To address this and other eDiscovery challenges, Digital Reef will complement FAST's advanced search platform with capabilities such as:

  • Analytic tools that significantly reduce the amount of content that must be manually reviewed—including identification of duplicates and near duplicates and the ability to search for content by example.
  • Automatic classification of documents to quickly identify responsive (relevant), confidential, and junk content.
  • Management capabilities that allow for the transformation of content into different format types, as well as the mass movement of documents to produce a dataset for review by counsel.
  • A single browser-based user interface that allows users to see and act upon content across multiple SharePoint (and other) repositories.

    In addition to providing advanced legal discovery capabilities for Office SharePoint Server 2007 and all other major server types, Digital Reef's unstructured data management platform is used by enterprises to achieve a single, actionable view of unstructured and semi-structured data assets across the enterprise data center; mitigate data risk; enable knowledge reuse; and drive strategic storage initiatives. Digital Reef partners include search, content management, eDiscovery, and data security technology vendors as well as electronic data discovery (EDD) processing and other service companies.

    "We are very pleased to have formed a partnership with FAST," said Steve Akers, President and CEO of Digital Reef. "Office SharePoint Server 2007 is rapidly becoming standard infrastructure in many of the enterprises we talk to, and FAST's indexing and search capabilities combined with Digital Reef's scalable unstructured data management platform provide the tools companies need to execute and manage legal discovery, compliance, security, and storage initiatives for Office SharePoint Server 2007."

    Digital Reef is a Microsoft Enterprise Search Group Technology Partner. The Digital Reef solution with FAST search capabilities will be generally available in Q3 2009. For more information, please contact Digital Reef at 978-893-1000, [email protected] or visit http://www.digitalreefinc.com.
