Hanzo and Vestige Digital Investigations Announce Strategic Partnership to Offer Expanded Services for Online Digital Investigations and the Capture of Social Media Evidence

NEW YORK, NY – Hanzo and Vestige Digital Investigations are pleased to announce they have entered into a strategic partnership, combining Hanzo’s industry-leading dynamic web archiving and AI-powered online investigations technology with Vestige’s digital forensics, eDiscovery and cybersecurity expertise to deliver expanded services to their respective customers around the globe.

As the IT world continuously evolves, exemplified by the shift from PCs to mobile devices, or the proliferation of cloud-based applications that support mobile and distributed workforces, vast volumes of unstructured, dynamic data is everywhere, and it can be challenging to capture correctly. This data is often a treasure trove of evidence for resolving issues in disputes such as IP, fraud, embezzlement, cyberbullying, and terrorism cases. Corporate legal teams and law firms alike need an expanded approach that can efficiently and effectively uncover responsive data hidden amongst the vast volume of publicly available information on the web. They also need the power to forensically recover deleted files and social media posts that might still reside on individual devices.

“The web is a vital yet often under-used resource for cases largely because it’s been historically too arduous and expensive to identify the subject profile and capture the relevant data before it changes,” said Dan Spaide, Partner Manager, Hanzo. “This partnership pairs Hanzo investigations and preservation technology with expert digital forensic services to give customers more options to uncover and recover potentially mission-critical evidence.”

“In many cases,  the deleted data is the only remaining location for recovering evidence that can then be used for internal investigations or court cases to settle disputes and litigate claims,” said Anthony Merlino, Managing Director, Vestige Digital Investigations. “The Hanzo-Vestige partnership joins the technology and services of industry trailblazers to deliver best-in-class investigative solutions to clients”

Building on numerous successful client engagements, Vestige Digital Investigations will become part of the Hanzo Partner Ecosystem, a network of partnerships with complementary technologies, and service providers that make our customers’ work seamless and accelerate their desired results.
