“Atlanta – April 2, 2009 – eMag Solutions, LLC, an international provider of electronic discovery services and data management solutions, announces the addition of several significant new positions filled by respected veterans of the e-discovery and information technology industries. Catherine Cook-Holmes, Leigh-Anne Levinski and Robert Wakeley have joined eMag in the roles of sales executives. Also, eMag has hired Rupen Patel as the company’s new vice president of software engineering.
Despite current economic conditions weighing on many e-discovery and technology service providers, eMag Solutions’ continued growth has prompted the need for ongoing staff additions. eMag’s achievement of ISO/IEC 27001:2005 certification, announced earlier this year, along with recent advancements in product development have earned the company significant attention. These developments have spurred an increase in business from clients seeking service providers with a commitment to security and the ability to deliver innovative technology solutions. On March 5, eMag announced a technological breakthrough in accessing and restoring discoverable data directly from “”virtual tape””, the result of which is the substantial savings of time and money for organizations needing to restore archive tapes in volume from a mainframe environment.
