HOUSTON, March 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- E-Discovery software leader Lateral Data, LP announced today the addition of 42 LLC, a Los Angeles provider of e-Discovery, forensic analysis and intrusion response services, as a Viewpoint™ subscriber.  By leveraging the benefits of Viewpoint, Lateral Data's all-inclusive, hosted e-Discovery platform, 42 is able to bring new efficiency and client value to the entire spectrum of Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) tasks.

Viewpoint, Lateral Data's flagship product, facilitates virtually all major EDRM components including collection and preservation of data, pre-processing, full processing, analysis, review and production.  Featuring a familiar Outlook-style interface, also offers advanced capabilities including complex analytics, email threading, visual conceptual analysis and near-duplicate comparisons to keep pace with the needs of sophisticated requirements.  

Viewpoint was developed over a seven year period of real-world use, ensuring its defensible performance under the strains of daily activity.  In measured tests it has also been shown to execute tasks at speeds two to five times that of other leading platforms.

"With each passing day, e-Discovery becomes more complex.  Amid this shifting environment, we feel Viewpoint will help us reduce costs, improve accuracy and add convenience to our e-Discovery services," said Nick Ringold, 42 Managing Director.

"It has taken us three years to find a software company which we feel is up to our standards with a product which will allow us to provide a full end to end service for our clients, without the complexity of multiple tools," said Chris Pavan, 42 Co-Founder.

42, named for the famous "answer to everything" in "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy", is a leading West Coast resource for ESI (Electronically Stored Information) analytic and forensic services.  Headquartered in Los Angeles, 42 uses its expertise to resolve ESI matters for corporations, law firms, government, military, law enforcement and the courts.  

"42 understands that each component of the Electronic Discovery Reference Model is important.  Its selection of Viewpoint as a comprehensive e-Discovery solution adds credibility to Viewpoint's unique capabilities," said Matt Berry, Founder and CEO of Lateral Data, LP.  "Viewpoint's power to identify, collect, process and produce virtually every form of digital data, combined with its ability to share information with clients in real time, makes it very attractive to expert firms like 42 LLC."
