HOUSTON, Aug. 18, 2011

HOUSTON , Aug. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — E-Discovery software leader Lateral Data, LP today announced the availability of Viewpoint™ Connectors, a free addition to the base package of the company's Viewpoint e-Discovery platform.  Created in response to the increasing amount of data now being transmitted by social media, cloud-based email and Web-based business collaboration platforms, Viewpoint Connectors lets Viewpoint users import authorized data from Facebook, Gmail, Twitter, SharePoint and other sources for processing and posting within Viewpoint.

Viewpoint Connectors brings even greater power and practicality to the Viewpoint All-in-One e-Discovery system.  Viewpoint, one of the most popular e-Discovery solutions on the market today, covers all the primary components of the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) including collection and preservation of data, pre-processing, full processing, analysis, review and production.  The SaaS product is favored by law firms, corporate law departments and e-Discovery service providers due to its familiar Microsoft Outlook-style interface and data processing speeds that are two to five times that of other leading products.

With Viewpoint Connectors, Viewpoint users can now quickly incorporate the increasing amount of case-critical data that is transferred over today's most common communications and collaboration platforms.  To access such data, Viewpoint subscribers must have the user name(s) and password(s) for the accounts in question.  Once the login information is entered and accounts accessed, Viewpoint seamlessly ingests the data for easy, unified review.  All of Viewpoint's more advanced features including email threading and near-duplicate identification are available during processing and analysis.

“Viewpoint Connectors are a proprietary technology developed in-house by Lateral Data.  Its addition to the basic Viewpoint platform is proof of our commitment to keeping our subscribers on top of the changing digital landscape,” said Matt Berry , Founder and CEO of Lateral Data, LP.  “More than ever, Viewpoint is the complete, end-to-end solution for all of the user's e-Discovery needs.”

Currently, Viewpoint Connectors can access Facebook*, Google Docs*, SharePoint, Twitter* and common IMAP email services including Gmail, Yahoo Mail and Microsoft Exchange.  For each of these services, Viewpoint Connectors can collect account contents—including friend lists, photos and documents—in a single pass.  Furthermore, specific subsets of a given account (collections, individual documents, folders, emails, etc.) can be isolated and collected upon importing.

From August 21-25, 2011 , Lateral Data will be demonstrating Viewpoint from its exhibit at the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) Conference at the Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville, Tennessee .  To learn more, visit the exhibit, log on to, or call (713) 592-8585.

*Rate of collections from external data source subject to third-party usage rate restrictions.
