Ediscovery News… Zapproved and Hanzo in partnership to modernize how corporations manage ediscovery

Hanzo, a pioneer of contextual collection and dynamic web content software, and Zapproved, an ediscovery software provider for managing corporate litigation readiness, today announced a partnership to increase the connectivity and simplicity of the ediscovery lifecycle.

Hanzo and Zapproved offer complementary products that together provide a cost-effective, secure, and efficient means of managing ediscovery. When paired, Zapproved’s Z-Discovery platform, an intuitive ediscovery software solution set for corporate legal and compliance teams, and the contextual collection and preservation capabilities of Hanzo, simplify and streamline ediscovery processes for corporate legal professionals.

“The Hanzo team is delighted to collaborate with Zapproved to simplify users’ daily workflow,” said Mark Williamson, CTO and Cofounder, Hanzo. “Our two companies share a common dedication to problem-solving through engineering and we look forward to working together for the benefit of our customers.”

This partnership signals a shared appetite to work towards a more connected legal ecosystem. Customers will use Z-Discovery’s Legal Hold Pro component to place a legal hold — notifying the organization not to delete electronically stored information (ESI) because of impending litigation. Customers will then use Hanzo to collect and preserve that data in a legally defensible manner. Clients can then utilize Z-Discovery’s Digital Discovery Pro system to rapidly process, review, and produce data for litigation, regulatory, and compliance matters with ease.

“With the use of social media and collaboration platforms growing rapidly, enterprises are faced with the challenge of defensibly collecting and preserving these new data sources in an efficient, repeatable way,” said Aaron Laliberte, VP of Product, Zapproved. “We’re delighted to partner with Hanzo to offer in-house legal departments the best possible set of solutions for their ediscovery needs.”

One of the first joint efforts of the partnership will be an educational webinar entitled “Best Practices for Collecting and Preserving Slack Data” on August 21st at 1:30pm ET.

Ediscovery experts will walk through the collection and preservation of Slack data to show how Hanzo and Zapproved streamline and modernize ediscovery together.
