Transend Releases Forensic Edition of Email Conversion Software for eDiscovery

Transend Migrator Forensic Edition Converts Email From Virtually All Email Systems/Clients To Formats for eDiscovery

PALO ALTO, CA — November 22, 2005 — Transend Corporation today announced the immediate availability of Transend Migrator Forensic Edition, a special edition of Transend’s award-winning Microsoft Windows email migration utility. Transend Migrator Forensic Edition converts email data from virtually all email systems or clients to formats required for eDiscovery, including Outlook PST, PDF, MSG, JPEG, TIFF, IMAP, RFC-822 and others. It also provides deduplication and searching capabilities to limit unnecessary data conversion.

Deduplication removes duplicate email messages as determined by the MD5 hash algorithm. MD5 hash creates a unique mathematical value by analyzing certain properties of the email message, including message body, subject, date, sender, recipient list, attachment header and attachment data. All or a subset of these fields can be included in the MD5 hash value. Through these fields, Transend Migrator Forensic Edition is able to determine which messages are duplicate or unique.

Another feature to reduce unnecessary email conversion is the content based searching and message culling feature. Users have the option of searching through one or all of the message parts — header metadata, message content, attachment name and attachment content –and outputting only those messages/attachments that match the search criteria.

“We’ve been licensing the standard edition of Transend Migrator for forensic eDiscovery purposes for a number of years now and learned that there are some special needs for this market that the standard edition didn’t offer,” said Fred Krefetz, president of Transend Corporation. “For example, target conversion formats such as PDF or JPEG are not typically needed when an organization is migrating from one email system to another, while this has proven to be very important for eDiscovery. Also, deduplication to eliminate the number of duplicate emails that are converted speeds the laborious eDiscovery process and reduces costs significantly.”

As with the standard edition, Transend Migrator Forensic Edition is easy to install and use with an intuitive wizard driven Windows interface and a powerful command line batch mode processor for automating the conversion of multiple mailboxes and data files in one process.

Transend Migrator Forensic Edition is licensed solely for the conversion of email data for eDiscovery purposes. One license allows the conversion of an unlimited number of data files/mailboxes from a single workstation. A trial version and more information is available at For license pricing or to talk to a sales representative, contact Transend via email or call 650-324-5370.
