Automated cloud-based legal hold and preservation OpenText Legal Hold

Drive error-free, efficient and defensible legal hold and collection tasks using the power of automation and the cloud

What is legal hold software?

Legal holds arise from the duty to preserve information for pending or reasonably anticipated litigation. Those covered by the hold, as well as the organization itself, must stop deleting and preserve potentially relevant data while the hold is in place. Many companies manage holds using email and spreadsheets, which is inefficient and may subject the company to unnecessary risk, especially when managing multiple holds at once, or when key employees administering the holds have left the company.

Modern legal hold software automates the interrelated legal hold, data preservation and collection activities. These solutions automate processes, speed legal teams’ access to relevant information and reduce reliance on IT teams.
