I am excited and proud to announce the General Availability of eDiscovery Platform 9.5 as of March 30, 2020.
This is a major release that incorporates many significant feature, product and security enhancements, improvements and fixes.
Some of the highlights of the release include the following:
Provides the capability to use Google Chrome, Apple Safari and Microsoft’s Edge to perform all administrator and user activities across all modules to include Legal Hold, Collections, Processing, System Management, Search and Advanced Search, except Native View mode to view Native Images, Redaction and Annotations which are currently only supported in IE11.
Enhances security by increasing the minimum requirements for user password in terms of password length and complexity.
Introduces the ability to expire or disable the default System Manager account Superuser.
TLS 1.0 is no longer supported, and TLS 1.2 would need to be enabled.
Provides a security enhancement where administrators can use the Password Manager option of the Clearwell Commander to change the AES Key’s password or to generate a new AES Key.
Administrators can now use File Shares that have the much secure SMB2 protocol enabled to Collect, Process and Export data.
As an added security enhancement, administrators can create Locations that can be consumed only for Processing.
Supports identification and collection of Archives from Enterprise Vault 12.5.0.
Supports identification and collection of Mailboxes from Microsoft Exchange Server 2019.
Supports identification and collection of Content from Microsoft SharePoint Server 2016.
While there are several features and options that eDiscovery Platform 9.5 is deprecating, the major option is that Windows 2008 R2 is no longer a supported install platform.
