In response to the COVID-19 pandemic requiring ‘social distancing’ everywhere, employees and companies have been forced to work remotely across the globe, no longer commuting or traveling to a company office. This ‘new normal’ of a remote workforce will change myriad workflows, with data collection as part of investigations or litigation now being perhaps the most starkly outdated. The legacy approach of massive overcollection by using forensic tools to image entire drives through physical access to employee laptops is now completely unfeasible if not physically impossible. To fix this issue, X1E Remote Collection On-Demand delivers the workflow of the future now, providing enterprises and their law firms and service providers the ability to surgically collect data directly from employee laptops or desktops anywhere in the world in minutes, converting a slow, expensive and disruptive process into a quick, secure, cloud-based workflow.
“The legacy forensic collection process requiring physical access to systems in order to image mountains of unresponsive and irrelevant data to then be taken back to a lab somewhere for processing and only then exported into a review and analytics platform was outdated before COVID-19,” said Craig Carpenter, CEO of X1. “It took weeks if not months and cost clients tens of thousands more than necessary, and was simply no longer feasible. With X1E Remote Collection On-Demand, however, clients and their law firms and service providers can start and finish a collection in minutes or hours, no matter where they or their employees are located, all without the need for any hardware, staff or IT involvement, let alone physical access to employee devices. We believe this will quickly become the only way collections will be handled going forward.”
