The Challenge

Few could have foreseen the sheer amount of corporate data stored on backup tapes that may affect e-Discovery in ways not anticipated, and the penalties are steep for those who fail to respond to litigation events in time. How do you ensure that all responsive data is disclosed on time and in a legally defensible manner?

The Solution

Recognized as the leading subject matter experts in this area, TDS combines technical expertise with engineering skills to scale our capabilities for large volume restoration projects - so you can be sure with an efficient and timely response, relieving the pressure points that can exist between internal stakeholders.

Complex and time consuming backup tape restoration projects often present a pressure point between Legal, I.T. and Compliance teams.

  • Legal teams, faced with the need to respond quickly and accurately to frequent e-Discovery requests often rely on the ability of their I.T. teams to  identify and restore data.

  • Due to various reasons such as organizations failing to adhere to their data retention policies, the advent of 'legal hold', or simply the fact that backup tapes were never designed as a searchable archive, in-house data retrieval can be costly, inefficient, inaccurate and highly risky.

  • In addition, legal teams are often stuck when asked to produce budgets at an early stage because of the lack of intelligent and reliable means to accurately assess likely costs for the searching, retrieval and review of targeted, potentially responsive data.

TDS employs vetted, defensible and cost effective processes to restore data from a wide range of file types stored on virtually any tape format.

Simply put, when the e-Discovery event involves backup tape we provide the capability to respond in an efficient and timely manner and relieve the pressure points that can exist between internal stakeholders.
