I'm thinking about packaging up some services around security, court ordered mail search compliance, and performance.

By Andrew Pollack on 06/27/2008 at 11:51 AM EDT

I've been considering taking some of what I've been doing around security and compliance and creating some packaged offerings. They would all be priced under $10,000 and would be soup to nuts offerings targeted at the following:

1. Response to court or lawyer requests for document search across mail, discussion, and other Notes databases --- The idea would be to bring in my tools to do a comprehensive, unbiased search across an entire mail domain, putting together in place all of the uses of a term, phrase, or subject in question. The result being printable, sortable, searchable, and tied back to the context in which it was created. What should I call this service?

2. Security Review - A couple of days on site doing a complete review of the security environment either the Domino infrastructure, mail security in detail, or application security in specific. The follow up would be a document 10-20 pages with findings and recommendations.

3. Performance Review - Similar to the above.

You'll find I have a product in this space, which handles not just mail files
by ANY lotus notes database and can also recreate entire thread trees based on
a single word or phrase.

The tools I have. Its a question of using it as part of a service, rather than
just selling a tool.

1) Snoop Dog (use a Bloodhound in the marketing materials)
2) Fire Dog (use a Dalmatian in the marketing materials)
3) Sports Dog (use a Greyhound in the marketing materials).

(I have no idea where the Dog theme came from. Perhaps I should spend some
more time playing with mine, and less time in front of the computer)

We have developed something similar in-house, except it only works across

The legal team select the required person(s), the search terms, and the date
ranges. The system then copies the mailboxes locally, does an FT, performs the
search and takes the results from each mail file and puts them into a single
database for counsel to review and prepare for opposing counsel.

If there would be enough interest, Iu2019d put it up on OpenNTF.

...its packaged up (NCT Compliance Search) and handles much more than just mail
files. It does all the searching and sorting - has error and log reporting to
be used as proof of the search, and doesn't require local copies of the

I think that is a fair decision on their part, it's how they pay for the site. However, if you want me (and many others) to white list your site, there are some rules you should follow. If you violate these rules, I won't whitelist your site, I'll just find content elsewhere. 1. The total space taken up by advertisements ......
