Discovery Attender 3.8 Directly Searches Cloud Based Microsoft Office 365 Platform

Sherpa Software Announces Major Enhancements to the Newest Release of Discovery Attender

 Pittsburgh, PA 8/24/2012 – Sherpa Software, a leading provider of E-Discovery and information management solutions, is proud to announce the release of the newest version of their E-Discovery tool, Discovery Attender 3.8. This helpful application uses proprietary search technology to quickly find and produce critical documents within a variety of data stores including PST files, Exchange mailboxes, NSF files, SharePoint, network shares and more in response to legal discovery requests.   

 Major enhancements in this version are highlighted by the ability to directly search Mailboxes and Online Archives in Microsoft’s cloud based Office 365. Users will have the option to search these stores via direct access (mailbox name with password) or connecting through impersonated accounts. Office 365 data stores are treated just like any other mail store for searching,  previewing, exporting or opening results. Messages and attachments are automatically cached for easier post-search processing. Additional updates to Discovery Attender’s capabilities include accessing IMAP email stores for PST export, specialized processing for Exchange  Journaled Messages, and searching EML files using email criteria.

  “These updates to Discovery Attender will help provide an effective discovery solution for business moving to Office 365.  In addition, changes such as the preview pane, pausing searches and automatically assigning custodians will directly appeal to customers using the product day to day.” said Marta Farensbach, Senior Product Manager for Discovery Attender.


 Additional enhancements to Discovery Attender  include a new preview pane integrated into the results view that renders keywords with hit highlighting. Auto assignment of custodians is another helpful new feature.  Metadata fields such as addressees, aliases, names are scanned to automatically allocate results for more effective grouping. 

 Reporting has also been improved with Discovery Attender 3.8.  Statistics for original expressions have been added to complement the existing leaf and branch views.  Further additions include the File Extension View and Container Item View.   With these views, users can now see files and attachments categorized by type, as well as highlight and export individual items found in compressed container file such as zip files.


The new release of Discovery Attender 3.8 is filled with features:

  • Updated Interface
  • Full PDF Password Support
  • Additional Organizational Icons
  • Improved Advanced Filter Options
