eDiscovery and Legal Holds

Centralize content for eDiscovery and legal holds

Streamline how content is identified and preserved for litigation

eDiscovery is one of the most important — and often the most expensive — parts of the litigation process. But manually collecting content for eDiscovery can be time-consuming, and content fragmentation at many companies makes it hard to find, preserve and analyze the content needed for litigation. Using Box, companies can streamline and improve how content is discovered and preserved for litigation matters, all without impacting the experience of end users.
