SEATTLE--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Lighthouse eDiscovery, a leader in technology-enabled eDiscovery services, today announced the immediate availability of RedactSmart, a Relativity-based automated redaction solution that increases the speed and consistency with which redactions are applied to privileged and confidential data. RedactSmart is unique in that it allows users to search and redact documents during native review without incurring the database load, time, and expense of first converting them to TIFF images. It also provides a level of visibility not provided by other tools—including real-time redaction status, robust document history, and detailed error reporting—allowing users to integrate RedactSmart into any workflow and maintain a highly defensible process.
“Redactions that used to take hours and, in extreme cases, cost up to hundreds of thousands of dollars to apply, can now be done in minutes. By leveraging RedactSmart, a client was recently able to complete more than 800 redactions and QC in less than an hour.”
RedactSmart improves the speed and consistency of redactions in all types of matters, but is particularly well suited for companies in the pharmaceutical, financial services and government sectors where cases commonly have a heavy redaction load due to large volumes of personal information, confidential business data, or privileged material. Instead of having to manually draw boxes on TIFF images, RedactSmart enables reviewers to search for words, phrases, sentences, and other blocks of data and redact them across all the documents in the matter. RedactSmart also supports the automated redaction of social security numbers, phone numbers, credit card numbers, and other sensitive information that follows a programmable pattern.
“RedactSmart furthers our mission to increase the efficiency and lower the cost of eDiscovery for our clients,” said Debora Motyka Jones, director of product strategy and counsel of Lighthouse eDiscovery. “Redactions that used to take hours and, in extreme cases, cost up to hundreds of thousands of dollars to apply, can now be done in minutes. By leveraging RedactSmart, a client was recently able to complete more than 800 redactions and QC in less than an hour.”
Other features of RedactSmart include:
- Customizable redaction text,
- A dashboard for monitoring and QCing redactions,
- Real-time redaction status from the document view,
- The ability to modify redactions,
- Bulk or single redaction deletion capability,
- A full audit trail within Relativity’s document history; and
- The ability to image documents at the time of the redaction request, not before.
RedactSmart is the newest addition to the Lighthouse SmartSeries suite of eDiscovery solutions. The SmartSeries, comprised of a proprietary email threading, analytics, and privilege review tools, is aimed at improving the efficiency of review and reduces clients’ overall review costs by as much as 40 to 60 percent.
RedactSmart is provided exclusively through Lighthouse at a starting price of $0.10 per hosted document with minimum charges for small matters. For more information or to use RedactSmart on your next matter, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
