How to Reduce the Cost & Complexity of eDiscovery?
The cost of eDiscovery is skyrocketing. As more and more storage locations need to be searched, increasing volumes of data also need to be reviewed. That's where NetGovern shakes things up in eDiscovery. We empower legal teams to comb through all of their data in minutes instead of months, with a methodology called Smart Collection. The idea is to review & analyze data in-place, so only relevant ESI is collected.
Gain Instant Access to Active & Archival Data
Maintain up-to-date indexes of data within all your storage locations to allow searches to return results within seconds. With NetGovern, the 90-day limit of the federal rules of civil procedure to know your data gives plenty of time.
Gain a deep knowledge of your case’s ESI within days, not weeks.
Review Only What You Need Through a Single View
No need to search for where relevant data might be stored - and how to retrieve it - when you can search all locations through a single view.
Reduce the Burden/Cost of eDiscovery by Keeping It In-House
Because NetGovern is so simple to use, non-technical employees can handle the eDiscovery process from beginning to end. In-house counsel and litigation support teams can quickly cull data, no coding skills needed.
As IT is no longer required, legal teams can keep investigations confidential.
Searching and reviewing in-place ensures that minimal data sets are to be collected and placed under litigation hold. Keeping discovery in-house, speeding up ECA, minimizing review time, data to collect, and storage requirements for legal holds all contribute to reducing costs.
Prevent Spoliation with Litigation Hold
With NetGovern, there’s more than one way to stay in control of digital evidence. Place data under hold as you go, or enforce a dynamic hold to continuously capture all data corresponding to a set of criteria. Even preview which data would be impacted by a preservation criteria beforehand to make sure that it’s really what you want.
Better Collaborate with Outside Counsel
In-house counsel who do need the extra help from external law firms can do so securely and efficiently with NetGovern’s role-based access and export to load file functionalities.
Assign Secure In-Place Access to Data
Assign case managers or reviewer roles resources needed on your team, including counsel at your external law firm. Assigning access eliminates the need to copy data for a third party which increases cybersecurity risks. Keep your data safe - behind the gates that were designed to protect it - without impacting efficiency.

Instead of adhering to the EDRM model for eDiscovery, the NetGovern framework – called Smart Collection - moves on a slightly different path, essentially swapping a few of the stages. Learn more about this time, cost, and resources saving method in our guide.
