Twenty percent said that their company faces “High Risk.”

Android security was also under the microscope by Lockout, while Lockpath and Network Frontiers released a badly needed dictionary of compliance. We also looked at process and policy in e-Discovery.

With the maturing of the e-Discovery marketplace, it can be easy -- too easy -- to think that it's all just a matter of using the right tool. But as with most business processes, and particularly with e-Discovery, it's a matter of policy and process as well.

While we have talked a lot over the past six months about Office 365, its potential and problems, one of the things that no one seems to able to answer is where and who is going to use it. Microsoft itself is hoping for interest from the SMB market, while vendors have been working to develop integrations for it. The release of Bloomberg’s (news, site) Office 365 Cloud Archiving this week is one such product.

Social media is no longer just for the rest of us. As we’ve reported previously, industry after industry, no matter how regulated, wants to reap the benefits of social media without the burden of social media. Social collaboration is sexy. Records management isn’t. The same goes for e-Discovery. It’s only been in the past year or so that we’ve seen vendors within the e-Discovery space really tackle the issues that social media brings into the enterprise. Until then, they only predicted about its influence.
Nothing perks up a Friday like delving into the underbelly of the enterprise in an effort to reveal and analyze the growing impact of cloud computing and social media on electronic discovery. Thanks to a report released by Clearwell Systems, conducted in conjunction with analyst firm Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG), we can do just that.
