E-STET's Relativity Offering Now Includes iPad Compatibility as it Upgrades to 9.5

On March 31, 2017, E-STET upgraded its Relativity environment to Relativity 9.5. This provided a lot of new features, including the ability to use Relativity on Apple’s iPad. Relativity for iPad requires iOS 9.0 or later.

What else is new in Relativity 9.5?

Structured Analytics Sets. Easily view which documents have been excluded from your set using the Field Tree browser and click on Included and Excluded tags under the relevant set to view these documents. This is consistent with how reporting works for Analytics Indexes.

Email thread visualization tool. The tool has been completely re-designed to make it easier for you to review and code email documents in Relativity. This tool is only available for email threads created using Structured Analytics in Relativity 9.5.41.87 or higher. Its features:

  • Visualize the email actions, order and branching of an email thread

  • See where missing emails, duplicate spares, and attachments exist and navigate directly to an email's duplicate spares or attachments by hovering over the relevant email icon in the thread.

  • Instantly verify how emails were coded across a thread by selecting a Yes/No or single choice field.

  • Make mass editing changes to emails in the thread directly from the visualization.

Improved Structured Analytics error handling

  • No longer need to manually filter out large documents.

  • Documents with more than 30 MB of extracted text are now automatically removed from the Structured Analytics set and flagged in Document Errors.

  • For Textual Near Duplicate identification, documents that only contain numbers or that do not contain text will have the Textual Near Duplicate Group field set to Numbers Only or Empty.

  • Email threading task errored documents are now reported in Document Errors (but not removed from the set).

Batch sets. When you click Create Batches within the Batch Sets console, Relativity automatically submits the documents in the batches for conversion.

Choices. The Manage links that first appeared in Relativity 9.3 are now visible in Mass Edits and Relativity Dynamic Objects.

Conversion. If you're experiencing issues when converting images, you can now manually add the MaximumImageCountForViewer instance setting to your environment.

Fact Manager. The new Outlines tab in Fact Manager allows you to easily build case narratives within Relativity. Within the Outlines feature, you can create free-form outlines, link to existing Fact Manager objects and documents, and create new Fact Manager objects.

Integration Points

  • To adhere to enhanced security measures, the Import Location field on the Source Information layout is no longer visible when you import a load file, and the root folder of DataTransfer\Import is displayed on the Import Source field by default.
  • To adhere to enhanced security measures, the Export Location field on the Destination Information layout is no longer visible, and the root folder of DataTransfer\ is maintained under the File Repository location, which is not visible to end users. As a result, the Destination Folder field displays "DataTransfer\<name>" by default.
  • The Move Existing Documents field is new on the Map Fields layout of an integration point. It gives you the option of relocating existing documents when promoting data using Append/Overlay mode.
  • The Relativity Instance field is new on the Connect to Source layout. You can use this field to promote data from one workspace to another workspace located in another Relativity instance, specifically a federated instance.
  • You can now import a production load file through Integration Points using import configuration settings similar to those found in the Relativity Desktop Client.
  • You can now import an image load file through Integration Points using import configuration settings similar to those found in the Relativity Desktop Client.
  • The Import Detail fields on the Connect to Source layout have been changed to be more intuitive. Specifically, the Processing Source and Load Data From fields are now called Import Location and Import Source, respectively.
  • The User Folder Path Information field on the Map Fields layout now works when you select Append/Overlay as the overwrite option.

Processing. Relativity Processing now supports OST files from Office 2013.

Layouts. You can now control the vertical space between the lines of text in your document by selecting text and selecting a line-spacing setting from the line-spacing drop down.  Line spacing is left intact when copying and pasting from Microsoft Word.

Mass operations. The Set extracted text size mass operation is now called Set long text field size. You can use the set long text field size operation to calculate long text size and save the value in a decimal field for each selected document.

Relativity Desktop Client command line import tool. The command line import tool now supports the input of Relativity OAuth 2 client credentials as an alternative to username and password credentials when logging in to Relativity through the tool. The option for using OAuth 2 client credentials offers increased security, since it uses access tokens that expire within a specific time frame.

Review. When navigating between the Viewer and document list, the last document that you viewed is highlighted in yellow within the document list when you exit the Viewer.

E-STET was founded in 2007 by an immigrant who believed that technology could make the law more efficient. Since then, E-STET has been a team of engineers, lawyers, and entrepreneurs who grew up in the the United States and seven different countries across four different continents, all who have been committed to a more efficient legal system in the United States.

Our thoughts are with the family, friends, and colleagues who have been affected by the recent ban. As part of E-STET’s commitment to standing with immigrants, our employees, led by Chief Strategy Officer Aria Safar, have been volunteering their time and donating money to support those who have been impacted. E-STET will be matching employee donations to the International Refugee Assistance Project (IRAP), an organization that, since its establishment, has provided legal assistance to more than 10,300 refugees, and has resettled more than 3,100 individuals from conflict zones to safe new countries.

We have some resources below for you, our community, to join our efforts and help out.

Donate to IRAP or the ACLU, both of which have been defending immigrants and refugees.

Advocate. Call your Congressperson, and then email them to let them know your stance. Here is a guide. You can also sign the Change.org petition.

Volunteer if you’re an attorney or speak Arabic or Persian. Reach out to Aria Safar (aria@e-stet.com) who is working with volunteer groups on the ground at airports across the United States.

E-STET Receives Second Security Accolade, SOC 2 Type II Attestation Report

LOS ANGELES, CA (PRWEB) MARCH 24, 2016

KirkpatrickPrice announced today that E-STET, a California-based legal technology provider, has received their annual SOC 2 Type II attestation report. The completion of this engagement provides evidence that E-STET has a strong commitment to deliver high quality services to its clients by demonstrating they have the necessary internal controls and processes in place.

SOC 2 engagements are based on the American Institute of CPA’s (AICPA’s) Trust Services Principles. SOC 2 service auditor reports focus on a service organization’s non-financial reporting controls as they relate to the principles of security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of an organization. KirkpatrickPrice’s service auditor report verifies the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of E-STET’s controls to meet the criteria for these principles.

“The SOC 2 audit is based on the Trust Services Principles and Criteria. E-STET has selected the security, availability, processing integrity, and confidentiality principles for the basis of their audit,” said Joseph Kirkpatrick, Managing Partner with KirkpatrickPrice. “E-STET delivers trust based services to their clients, and by communicating the results of this audit, their clients can be assured of their reliance on E-STET’s controls.”

“Today, data security is non-negotiable. It’s a critical component of any corporation’s day-to-day operations, including the legal process,” said Michael Dunn, E-STET’s President. “Adhering to the AICPA’s SOC 2 Type 2 framework demonstrates E-STET’s continuing dedication to data security. Our clients love the fact that we are as dedicated to the security of their data as they are.”

By concentrating where technology and the law intersect, we’re able to deliver creative and effective solutions that make the practice of law more efficient.” Mr. Dunn emphasizes the role of understanding every part of the practice of law in helping clients. “Our team of lawyers and technicians bridge the gap between attorneys who focus on high level legal issues and technology which often misses the nuances and complexities of practicing law.”

“Amid a fierce business climate, there seems to be no shortage of new and established companies that are unlocking a seemingly unlimited potential for growth and advancement through technology’s continued disruption and proliferation across industries,” said Sandra Shirai, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and U.S. technology, media and telecommunications leader. “It is inspiring to witness the innovative ways that companies are incorporating emerging technologies for business gains, be it cognitive computing, or the Internet of Things.

Introducing E-STET's Insight Accelerator

LOS ANGELES, CA (PRWEB) OCTOBER 02, 2015

E-STET today announced their Insight Accelerator service offering, which provides an all-in-one managed services data solution for corporate legal departments and law firms. Rather than only deal with data on a transactional basis during the eDiscovery process, E-STET’s Insight Accelerator regularly turns data into actionable knowledge, allowing attorneys at law firms and corporations to take a proactive approach to issues like compliance, regulation, and litigation.

Founded in 2007, with offices in Los Angeles and San Francisco, E-STET provides eDiscovery and information governance solutions for AmLaw 100 law firms, corporations, and nonprofit organizations nationwide. E-STET has been promoting a more streamlined eDiscovery process with recent product and service releases, including Wind and Screen i/o.

“We created Insight Accelerator because the process of getting relevant data to legal departments for compliance or for eDiscovery was incredibly inefficient,” said Michael Dunn, President of E-STET. “By having a single package providing a fixed-cost for technology experts, hardware, and software, a legal department will not only spend significantly less money on eDiscovery in the long-term, but will also be able to make more productive use of their data.”

Another stated goal of Insight Accelerator is addressing the issue of data security in the eDiscovery supply chain. Current practices entail corporations engaging with multiple law firms, who in turn retain multiple eDiscovery vendors for different projects. This results in corporations losing control of their data and an inability to account for data handling practices of subcontractors. Insight Accelerator, on the other hand, aggregates all of this data with one provider behind E-STET’s secure SOC II-certified data facilities, minimizing the likelihood of data loss and breach.

E-STET Hosting Relativity with Direct-License Option

Los Angeles, CA (PRWeb) E-STET today announced that they have expanded the capabilities of their managed services offering by creating the Enterprise Licensing Program (ELP), a new way for corporations and law firms to adopt kCura’s Relativity eDiscovery platform. This new option allows corporations to obtain a Relativity license without having to construct their own infrastructure or enter into a series of negotiations and contracts with multiple parties. E-STET's ELP provides Relativity licenses and infrastructure under one fixed-fee contract.

Founded in 2007, with offices in Los Angeles and San Francisco, E-STET provides eDiscovery and information governance solutions for law firms and corporations nationwide. E-STET has been providing a more streamlined eDiscovery process with recent product and service releases, including Wind and Screen i/o.

Available to Relativity Best in Service Partners running Relativity 9.1 or higher, multi-tenancy technology allows E-STET to serve multiple customers in a single Relativity deployment through ELP. Customers get the same front-end administrative control—including workspace and user creation and the ability to grant permissions to their end users—as they would in their own Relativity deployment, while reaping the benefits and cost savings of a shared deployment hosted by E-STET. By securely isolating users, resource pools, workspaces, groups, and matters by client, ELP ensures all items within a client's environment are inaccessible to any users outside that environment.

“ELP is an easy and cost-effective way for a corporation or law firm to get their hands on Relativity,” said Michael Dunn, President of E-STET. “The future of the eDiscovery industry is driven by services like the ELP that give both total control over all the pieces of a solution as well as provide efficiency and simplification of products and services.”

E-STET launches Screen i/o, data security service

Los Angeles, CA (PRWeb) E-STET, an eDiscovery company with offices in Los Angeles and San Francisco, announced today the launch of Screen i/o, a service dedicated to identifying and preventing data theft from within companies. Screen i/o looks at incoming, current, and outgoing employees’ data practices to identify threats and liability risks associated with the unlawful dissemination of companies’ proprietary data.

Following recent high profile data breaches caused by employees taking data from their current or past employers, Screen i/o reduces the risk of such security breaches through e-Stet’s proprietary forensic screenings and data monitoring. Screen i/o will provide consulting on crafting internal data policies that will improve company compliance with industry best practices for data theft prevention.

“e-Stet has seen that time and again, prevention is the best cure when it comes to data breaches from insiders” said Michael Dunn, President and Chief Operating Officer of e-Stet. “While there is a lot of focus on shadowy hackers, the biggest and most likely risk comes from employees who already have easy access to a company’s most sensitive data. Screen i/o is a critical part of minimizing this risk.”

Screen i/o will begin operations on July 1. Interested companies can find more information at screenio.e-stet.com.

E-STET Launches Academy, A Legal Technology Learning Platform

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 08, 2015. e-Stet today announced the release of Academy, a free online education platform covering eDiscovery and other legal technology topics. e-Stet Academy seeks to explain complex legal technology issues through short and engaging media.

Academy is also aggregating resources on legal technology in its Library, a one-stop curated collection of the most valuable information on eDiscovery and legal tech.

“e-Stet is committed to transparency through education. We believe that if decision makers and users of technology understand eDiscovery, the practice of law will become more efficient by leaps and bounds,” said Michael Dunn, Chief Operating Officer of e-Stet.

“Our goal is to give back to the legal community by providing a leadership forum where speakers and panel members can have a meeting of the minds in an environment that fosters ground breaking ideas in a meaningful and educative manner,” said Linda Alele, e-Stet’s Vice President of Client Relations. “e-Stet’s series will push the envelope in simplifying eDiscovery and related legal technology issues and permit greater visibility into the litigation technology and eDiscovery processes.”

The Breakfast Series which is a quarterly event kicks off on Monday, December 10, 2012, with a refreshing and dynamic presentation by Jeffrey Fowler, Partner at O’Melveny & Myers’ Los Angeles office, titled The Future of eDiscovery and its Impact on the Careers of Lawyers, Technologists, Paralegals and Litigation Support Professionals.

“If the events of 2012 are any indication, 2013 promises to be an important year for eDiscovery,” noted Jeffery Fowler. “Several factors will continue to play a role: the judiciary’s unprecedented involvement in paving the way for new document review technologies; litigants’ continued struggles with preservation compliance and allegations evidence spoliation; a growing number of clients who outsource document review to specialized legal service and consulting firms; new consumer technology, including smaller and more powerful handheld devices and integrated use of the cloud; and the consolidations, acquisitions and rapid fire growth of the service provider community. How will these developments in the law, technology and the eDiscovery industry impact careers of the eDiscovery specialists?”
