CA adds eDiscovery module to information governance suite

CA has announced that it has added new modules and features to its Information Governance Suite, including an electronic discovery and retention module.

The module helps organizations retain and dispose of the right information to limit outside legal review costs, the company said.

Included with both CA Records Manager r12.5 and CA Message Manager r12.5, the module helps organizations employ e-discovery techniques'a process in which electronic data is sought, located, secured and searched with the intent of using it as evidence in civil or criminal legal cases.

CA Records Manager, the first records management product to receive Defense Department 5015.2 v3 certification, the DOD's records management standard, has also received a 'paired certification' by the DOD to work with Microsoft SharePoint, the company added.

Other features now included in CA's Information Governance Suite are retention management for content beyond CA systems, including content in Window-based file systems, and automated file share content based on rules.

The suite is currently in beta and will be available before the end of the year, CA said. It's one of 10 new enterprise IT management and governance products CA announced this week to help organizations better handle some of the challenges in the economy by adapting to change and controlling costs, CA representatives said.
