eDiscovery Platform, Nikon is able to rapidly and accurately filter,

    "Using Symantec's Clearwell product in-house allows us to dramatically
decrease costs associated with early case assessments," said Takuya
Shirahata, executive staff, 1st section, 2nd intellectual property
department, Nikon Corporation. "Processing and analyzing the increasing
volume of data for our case is a huge undertaking, but with the help of
Symantec's Clearwell eDiscovery Platform we are able to process the data
in a matter of days. The product's easy to use interface, double-byte
support and transparent search capabilities provide our legal team with
quick and continuous visibility into case facts, which allows us to meet
appointed deadlines and stay within budget."

    Japanese customers continue to select Symantec's Clearwell eDiscovery
Platform for the product's battle-tested technology and features that
provide critical capabilities such as robust support for double-byte and
Japanese encodings. In addition, the product provides the flexibility
necessary for cross-border eDiscovery cases typically faced by Japanese
customers, where litigation often demands multi-jurisdictional support
and requires data to be processed in Japan and other countries such as
the United States. For instance, Symantec's Clearwell eDiscovery Platform
can be deployed on a hosted basis or onsite, which allows eDiscovery to
be conducted in Japan without having to send data to the U.S. for
processing. This enables customers like Nikon to maintain control over
potentially sensitive data and avail themselves of business hour support

    "The global impact of litigation is leading corporations around the world
to closely evaluate their eDiscovery strategies and take greater control
of escalating costs," said Trevor Eddy, senior director, Information
Intelligence Group, Symantec Corp. "Through extensive research and
development, Symantec's Clearwell eDiscovery Platform has been built to
meet the unique eDiscovery needs of our Japanese customers. By bringing
eDiscovery in-house, Nikon is able to leverage Symantec's innovative
technology to better manage the eDiscovery process and simultaneously
reduce costs."
