Hanzo Archives and Merrill Corporation Announce Web Archiving Partnership

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 30, 2012) - Hanzo Archives and Merrill Corporation announced today that the two have formed a partnership to launch comprehensive social media archiving and web archiving solutions in the enterprise market.

This partnership combines powerful software with a unique methodology to easily collect, archive, preserve and playback websites, blogs, and social media in native format. Enterprise clients can now implement their web archiving policy both on-premise and in the cloud.

Hanzo Archives, a world leader in social media archiving and website archiving solutions, and Merrill Corporation, a leading global legal services company, will provide enterprise clients with enhanced e-discovery capabilities for their entire web presence, and internal and external business social networks. These web and social media archiving solutions also ensure compliance with regulatory standards of information governance such as SEC 17-a4, FINRA 11-39, and others.

"What we're seeing from clients is an aggressive shift from traditional marketing and corporate communications to collaborative web platforms and business social networks," explains Hanzo CEO Mark Middleton. "One of the major challenges from a compliance and e-discovery standpoint is the inability to manage, collect, or preserve these important content types together with the full contextual experience. This is particularly important for internal and external business social networks and collaborative environments. Our native format web archiving technology solves these issues for all web technologies."

When asked about Merrill's new partnership with Hanzo, Daniel Pelc, Senior Director of Marketing-Litigation Services, provided further insight, "Merrill sees great value in the use of Hanzo software. Social Media and complex websites are one of the fastest growing sources of potential discovery documents. The Hanzo system is incredibly effective and easy to use."

More information about this partnership and web and social media archiving is available by contacting Hanzo Archives and the Merrill Corporation.
