PLEASANTON, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 11, 2007 -- ZANTAZ, a recognized leader in content archiving and electronic discovery, today announced it was selected by Sand Hill Group for the Innovation Showcase, which spotlights innovators in the enterprise software industry. ZANTAZ CEO Steve King is a presenter at Software 2007's Innovation Showcase Theater on Tuesday, May 8, from 12:30-1:30 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. As a long-time expert in the field of content archiving and electronic discovery, King will share the "ground rules" and benefits associated with a company proactively and appropriately archiving digital data in anticipation of this data being produced for legal discovery and other knowledge management purposes.

"This year's Showcase winners illustrate that innovation is alive and well in the software space," said M.R. Rangaswami, Sand Hill Group co-founder and Software 2007 executive conference director. "ZANTAZ represents one of 25 novel companies that we believe will play a notable role in the software ecosystem."

As a winner in the Fast Track Innovation Showcase category, ZANTAZ demonstrated significant market traction, financial viability, and customer adoption translating to real return on software investment.

ZANTAZ is the only vendor to offer a combination of on-site and on-demand content archiving and discovery solutions to reduce operational risks, comply with regulatory requirements, and prepare for litigation.

"According to the Radicati Group, the average corporate employee sends and receives about 125 emails a day. Couple that with all the other electronic files being created, organizations are under extraordinary pressure to better manage ever-growing stores of digital data in order to quickly and reliably produce this data for internal and regulatory compliance and discovery requests," said Steve King, president and CEO, ZANTAZ. "It is increasingly important for companies to choose a vendor based on their proven expertise in both content archiving and electronic discovery."
