Nuix, a technology company that enables people to make fact-based decisions from unstructured data, today released version 5.2 of the Nuix Engine and its core eDiscovery and Investigator products. This release includes smarter eDiscovery production and quality control workflows, deeper forensic analysis, support for even more file formats and automated text summarization. It also incorporates technology advances that pave the way for solutions in areas such as cybersecurity and privacy.
“The more we look, the more we realize how the Nuix Engine’s unique ability to index, search, analyze and extract knowledge from unstructured big data with speed, scale and precision can be applied to new and vital business problems,” said Eddie Sheehy, CEO of Nuix.
“In this release, we are adding capabilities to index and search data simultaneously and to decide dynamically what metadata to extract based on the content of each item. We are currently beta testing products using these capabilities to solve all kinds of new challenges such as cybersecurity and privacy.”
The latest release delivers many features on existing customers’ wish lists. For eDiscovery specialists, Nuix 5.2 is much faster at creating production and item sets, and up to 50 percent faster at exporting to review platforms such as Relativity and iCONECT. The new quality control module makes it possible to review imaging and stamping, fix rendering errors and insert custom slip sheets prior to export.
Investigators will enjoy the ability to dig deeper into Mac OS, Linux and Windows disk volumes and unallocated space; analyze Windows event logs and jump lists; and interpret regions in the binary structure of files.
New features such as text summarization, topic modeling and a customizable timeline view provide useful ways for all Nuix users to rapidly understand and analyze content. In addition, an early minor release of version 5.2 will have the ability to run natively on Mac OS and Linux systems.
“We are seeing a lot of interest in our OEM Program, which makes it possible for organizations to embed these new functions and other capabilities of the Nuix Engine into their own workflows and applications,” said Sheehy.
