New dtSearch® Release Enhances Support for Encrypted PDFs
dtSearch products instantly search terabytes of text across a wide range of online and offline data; dtSearch document filters also available for separate OEM licensing


Bethesda, Maryland – June 16, 2015 –dtSearch Corp., a leading supplier of general enterprise and developer text retrieval software for instantly searching terabytes of text in a broad variety of online and offline data formats, announces version 7.80 of its product line. All dtSearch products embed dtSearch’s proprietary document filters. The release expands these document filters to directly support a broader range of encrypted PDFs, covering PDF files encrypted with an owner password up to 128-bit RC4 and 128-bit and 256-bit AES.

Products and Platforms. SDKs include the dtSearch Engine for Win & .NET, Linux, and Android, with Mac OS X under development. Native 64-bit and 32-bit APIs cover .NET, C++, and Java. The dtSearch Engine’s document filters are also available for separate OEM licensing across all platforms. Other dtSearch products include: Web with Spider (providing HTML5 templates to publish instantly searchable data to an Internet or Intranet site); Network with Spider; Desktop with Spider; and Publish.

Document Filters and Supported Data. dtSearch products can parse, index, search, display with highlighted hits, and extract content from (using the developer APIs) full-text and metadata in the following data types:

  • Web-ready content: supports integrated image and text support in HTML, XML/XSL, PDF, ASP.NET, CMS, PHP, SharePoint, etc.
    Other databases: supports XML, Access, XBASE, CSV, etc.; dtSearch Engine APIs support SQL-type data along with the full-text of BLOB data.
  • MS Office formats: supports integrated browser-ready image and text in Word (RTF/DOC/DOCX), PowerPoint (PPT/PPTX), Excel (XLS/XLSX), Access (MDB/ACCDB) and OneNote (ONE).
  • Other “Office” formats, PDF, compression formats: supports other “Office” suite formats; compression formats like RAR, ZIP, GZIP and TAR; PDF, PDF Portfolio, and now many encrypted PDFs.
  • Emails and attachments: supports integrated browser-ready images, text and attachments in Outlook/Exchange (PST/OST/MSG) and Thunderbird (MBOX/EML).
  • Recursively embedded objects: supports recursively embedded objects and images in supported email types and MS Office formats. For example, the dtSearch document filters would support an email attachment consisting of a ZIP container including both a PDF and an Access database, where the latter also includes an embedded PowerPoint with embedded images.

Terabyte Indexer. dtSearch enterprise and developer products can index over a terabyte of text in a single index, spanning multiple directories, emails and attachments, online data and other databases. The products can create and search any number of indexes. Indexed search time is typically less than a second, even across terabytes of data.

Concurrent, Multithreaded Searching. dtSearch developer products provide efficient multithreaded searching, with no limit on the number of concurrent search threads. For online search, the products can run in a completely stateless manner, making it very easy to scale.

Federated Searching and the dtSearch Spider. dtSearch products offer federated searching across any number of directories, emails (with nested attachments), and databases. The dtSearch Spider adds local and remote online content to a search. The Spider can index sites to any level of depth, with support for public and private or secure online content, including log-ins and forms-based authentication. dtSearch products support integrated relevancy ranking with highlighted hits across both online and offline data repositories.

25+ Search Options and International Language Support. The dtSearch product line provides over 25 search types, including special forensics search options. For international language coverage, dtSearch products support Unicode, including support for right-to-left languages, and special Chinese/Japanese/Korean character options.

Faceted Search and Other Data Classification Options. The dtSearch Engine developer APIs support categorization based on document full-text contents, internal document metadata, database content, or data attributes associated with documents during document indexing. The dtSearch Engine also has APIs for other advanced data classification options as well, such as faceted search and full-text and/or fielded data positive and negative variable term weighting.

CloudNine™ Engages dtSearch® Engine for Streamlined SaaS-Hosted eDiscovery
Over 50 of the top 250 law firms are customers of the highly scalable CloudNine solution


CloudNine, eDiscovery provider to over 20% of top law firms, and dtSearch, a leader in enterprise and developer text retrieval products for instantly searching terabytes of text across a wide variety of data types, announce the integration of the dtSearch Engine into CloudNine’s SaaS-hosted eDiscovery platform.

When you need to review large volumes of electronically stored information (ESI) under tight litigation deadlines, choosing the right technology is vital. For CloudNine, a Houston-based electronic discovery software and service provider, one of the key components of that technology is dtSearch, the text-retrieval search engine that CloudNine has integrated into its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) review platform.

“With information volume in most organizations doubling about every two years, our clients have more data than ever to cull quickly for litigation review,” stated Doug Austin, Vice President of Professional Services at CloudNine. “Our clients are able to do so through the advanced searching and culling capabilities within our litigation review platform and dtSearch is a key component of that advanced searching and culling.”

“Before we switched to dtSearch, we had to rely on the full-text indexing and retrieval capabilities of the database management system (DBMS) that we were using,” noted Bill David, Chief Technology Officer at CloudNine, who oversees software development for the company. “By moving to dtSearch, we were not only able to take advantage of additional advanced searching capabilities, but we were also able to become DBMS independent.”

CloudNine has taken advantage of dtSearch’s fast indexing and retrieval capabilities to enable its clients to manage very large document collections. “We have hosted single data collections in the terabytes,” remarked Austin. “By leveraging the power of dtSearch in our platform, our clients can retrieve most result sets in just a few seconds, even in our largest collections.”

“The programmatic control that dtSearch gives us over the source files makes it easier to manage terabytes of data and still deliver search results fast,” added David. “Because of that, many of our clients process and load their entire eDiscovery data collection via our automated Discovery Client application, knowing that our search engine will quickly index their text and enable them to quickly cull the data within our platform.”

“CloudNine’s ease of use and searching flexibility are key reasons that we have used it on several cases within our firm,” stated Katherine Gonyea, Attorney at Dow, Golub, Remels & Beverly, LLP. “Even with cases as large as over 500,000 documents and over 1.8 million pages, the software returns search results in seconds!”

“In addition to its speed, our clients love the robustness of the search engine,” added Austin. “The ability to perform complex searches that include grouping of terms, phrases, proximity, fuzzy, stemming and synonyms which is integrated into CloudNine via the dtSearch Engine enables our clients to strike the best balance possible between recall and precision in their searches.”
