CLEVELAND, OH (Jan. 12, 2021) – ESI Analyst and Vestige Digital Investigations are pleased to announce their strategic partnership, combining ESI Analyst’s innovative technology with Vestige’s industry-leading expertise in digital forensics, electronically stored information (ESI), and cybersecurity to deliver expanded services to their clients around the world.

This complementary alignment of ESI Analyst and Vestige’s solutions deliver a powerful service offering to their market of electronic data investigations for the legal community. Leveraging ESI Analyst, Vestige further simplifies process and review of a multitude of modern data types. As data types and volumes continue to expand, the need to quickly find relevant evidence tucked away in many different media formats is imperative to investigations.

ESI Analyst’s data-centric approach understands that to competently litigate, counsel needs to review data in its near-native form with all of the elements of data intact, not in the form of a concatenated document.  These specialized elements of “data as evidence” are the crucial difference ESI Analyst makes available to counsel. Traditional document review offerings can be cumbersome to rapidly glean highly relevant data from the multitude of data sources subject to today’s often challenging digital investigations.

ESI Analyst allows all disparate data like chat-based communication applications, text messages, social media, financial records, geolocation, and forensic artifacts to coexist in a single platform. Creating timelines or identifying actions of matter actors in a particular timeframe combining multiple sources of digital evidence into one platform bringing to light the full evidence-based story.

Vestige is renowned for their ability to preserve, uncover, analyze, test, report and provide expert testimony surrounding relevant digital evidence located on any electronic device, especially when recovering deleted data is of the utmost importance. Vestige also provides cybersecurity services to help clients protect their valuable data.

“Vestige’s expertise in understanding, locating and analyzing relevant sources of data, combined with ESI Analyst’s ease of use, speed the handling of massive amounts of data allowing us to uncover relevant evidence more quickly for clients,” said Greg Kelley, Chief Technology Officer at Vestige. “This Channel Partnership pairs ESI Analyst’s investigative technology with Vestige’s expert digital forensic services to give customers more options to uncover and recover potentially mission-critical evidence.”

“In many cases deleted data is the only remaining location for recovering evidence that can then be used for internal investigations or court cases to settle disputes and litigate claims,” said Damon Hacker, President of Vestige Digital Investigations. “The ESI Analyst-Vestige partnership joins the technology and services of industry trailblazers to deliver best-in-class investigative solutions to clients.”

“The experience and technology the team at Vestige provides to their clients is first-class and we are excited about our partnership,” said Rick Clark, co-founder and VP of Client Services of ESI Analyst. “Their consultative approach allows them to streamline many forensic and discovery processes and with ESI Analyst they have a great offering for new and emerging data types.”
