World Software Corporation Announces Legal Hold Feature in Worldox

Worldox Sites Can Now Control User Access and Comply with Judicial Hold Requirements for Electronic Discovery Purposes



Glen Rock, NJ– August 7, 2012 – World Software Corporation® (, announces today a new Legal Hold feature for Worldox GX3 Professional, the newest version of its award- winning document management system (DMS), providing the ability to store and preserve files in read-only repositories with tightly controlled access.

Customers can now easily assign appropriate rights and restrictions to stored files and create restricted- access Security Groups among their employees. Authorized users within the Groups can move files in and out of Legal Hold as needed, and each action is tracked to create an accurate audit trail showing when these events occurred.

Worldox Legal Hold Feature Highlights:

  • Ability to activate or de-activate Legal Hold globally through Worldox. Once the feature is activated, Worldox users can mark groups of documents for Legal Hold so they cannot be changed or tampered with.
  • Legal Hold files can be found through Worldox search capabilities, and files can be clearly marked within the Legal Hold interface.
  • Audits can be conducted to show when the Legal Hold was initiated and removed by two new audit events called “Legal Hold Add” and “Legal Hold Undo.”

Tom O’Connor, a lawyer, eDiscovery expert and Director of Professional Services at eDiscovery company Avansic, stated, “Worldox now has a legal hold capability as a built in feature that is easy to both learn and use. If you want an efficient, affordable, secure and comprehensive tool for implementing a basic litigation hold policy that is repeatable and defensible, Worldox is the place to start.”

World Software President Ray Zwiefelhofer commented, “We are excited to be rolling out the Legal Hold feature for our clients as part of Worldox GX3 Professional. We are always enhancing our products with tools that will better assist our customers and the work that they do on a daily basis. It is extremely important to us to help our customers comply with judicial hold requirements and make it easier for them to control their stored files based on their unique needs.”

The Legal Hold feature is part of Worldox GX3 Professional and is available free of charge for Worldox customers. To get more information, please visit:
