Paraben’s IoT Support Increases To Cover The Amazon Echo With 1.4 Version

Tuesday, July 25, 2017 (09:58:42)
Paraben has been at the edge of innovation with the addition of support for IoT devices. Support started in Oct 2016 with DJI Drones support, and has increased with support for Android wearables, Fitbit, and Xbox gaming systems. With the 1.4 release of the E3 platform planned for the first of August 2017, the support of IoT devices will grow with Paraben releasing the first support for the Amazon Echo devices.

“The support of these devices was crucial because of how foundational the Echo technology is in IoT devices. Over 8 million people now own an Amazon Echo device; Alexa is here to stay. We needed to make sure we supported not only the local smartphone App, but also dealing with the data in the cloud.” commented Amber Schroader, CEO of Paraben. Paraben has always had a unique approach focusing on areas that not every digital forensic software company noticed.

Increasing Regulatory Burden on UK Pharma Fuels Need for E-Discovery Solution

Tuesday, July 18, 2017 (12:06:12)
AccessData just released a new white paper that discusses the growing litigation risks and regulatory pressures on UK pharmaceutical companies and the need for technology solutions to e-discovery.

The management of electronic data is a complex and time-consuming challenge for corporate legal executives in any industry. These challenges are especially acute for UK companies in the pharmaceutical industry where corporate executive teams are faced with managing electronic data that resides on email servers and other data repositories. Pharmaceutical companies face an even greater e-discovery challenge when it comes to harvesting data from restricted information sources such as clinical trial records, adverse reaction findings and highly confidential sales analysis reports.

The challenges are great but the technology is there. This white paper details key strategies to help pharmaceutical executives better manage their e-discovery responsibilities.
