Automatic Slack Ecosystem Preview + ECA

Previewing Slack structure with Dynamic Mapping technology makes it easy to target the data you want, eliminating unnecessary collections by up to 85%. Powerful search and data visualization tools aid in narrowing relevant datasets based on key metadata or file content for export and review. 


AI-Powered Data Insight And Rapid Risk Mitigation With Spotlight

Spotlight, an Illuminate add-on, combines Hanzo's proprietary AI with IBM's watsonx.ai to identify and categorize message content containing PII, PCI,  access credentials, trade secrets, and toxic language. Understanding collaborative message content allows internal investigation teams or IT departments to rapidly locate sensitive information and uncover unwanted workplace behavior while categorizing non-linear channel conversations for quick intelligence.


Single-Point Data Management of Google Workspace, Slack, and MS Teams

Hanzo Illuminate allows you to easily create and release legal holds in Slack, Microsoft Teams, or Google Workspace without collecting a single file. It removes bottlenecks between IT, Legal, and Investigations teams with easy data access. Users trigger collections only when required, helping reduce data collection and storage required. 


Complete Picture of Collaboration Data

Hanzo defensibly preserves and collects digital communications – Slack, Microsoft Teams, Google Workspace, Jira/Confluence, Asana, and other SaaS platforms and internal systems – while maintaining the conversation context, including attachments, emoji, and metadata.


API+ Data Collection Approach

APIs are a valuable way of connecting with data sources. However, with the rapid pace of new enterprise-level SaaS application adoption at the enterprise level, waiting for purpose-built APIs for ediscovery and compliance can put organizations at risk. Solutions combining APIs and Hanzo's Dynamic Capture technology can bridge the gap with complex data sources for a future-proof approach.


Has Your Risk Management Strategy Kept Up With Technology?

The average enterprise uses 288 SaaS apps across the organization. The average employee uses 10 different apps to collaborate and communicate daily. While these apps make us more connected and efficient, they complicate risk management. Are you ready?



Collect Exactly What You Need and Nothing More

Use Hanzo to precisely control your eDiscovery processes and respond effortlessly to eDiscovery and audit requests, internal investigations, or HR-related matters.

Scope + Preserve

Manage the precise preservation of data with Hanzo's Dynamic Mapping technology. An easy-to-use interface puts you in control of your legal hold matters.



Narrow your search results to specific messages, files, or emails containing various PII, financial information, or IT-related security data. Additionally, you can search for specific behavior, toxic or aggressive language. Visualize content by heatmap and channel specifics or via optional AI-driven categorization models.



Complete visibility within matters and across the entire application provides necessary auditing and reporting information. Audit reports may also be consumed via APIs connecting Hanzo with important IT SIEM tools. 


Early Case Assessment

Conduct analysis and early case assessment (ECA) of preserved data with advanced text and metadata search. Apply facets to narrow search results and visualize hot spots to gain insights to determine relevance quickly.


Tag + Cull

Easily cull down information and tag responsive data for export and/or further review, significantly reducing the volume of data that you need to send out for costly review.


Report +Export
