15 September 2016

GWAVA Inc, the leading provider of archiving, security and eDiscovery for electronic communication, for electronic communication, today announced a joint offering with ArchiveSocial, the leader in authentic capture of social media records. This joint offering combines ArchiveSocial with Retain Unified Archiving to deliver authentic capture, monitoring, archiving and eDiscovery of social media, mobile and email communications  to organizations around the world.  

As part of this partnership, ArchiveSocial will enhance its archiving capabilities to include eDiscovery, redaction, and litigation/legal holds with Retain. GWAVA will expand its Retain Unified Archiving of email, and mobile electronic communication to include authentic archiving, monitoring, and data insight of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, Flickr, Pinterest, and Google+, as well as archiving all YouTube and Vimeo videos and comments.

The enterprise environment has changed. It is now the CIO’s responsibility to collect, monitor, archive and provide access to social media data from the point where it is generated and consumed. If this data is archived, and accessible, when an audit ensues, the organization is prepared. Unfortunately, this data is being generated and consumed outside the digital walls of the traditional IT environment, thus creating a gap between business data and the ability to archive and access this data. This new partnership formed by ArchiveSocial and GWAVA is more than a partnership, it is a way for all organizations to solve a fundamental need to securely monitor and archive corporate social media communication data for Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, Instagram, Vimeo, Pinterest and Google+, in addition to email.

With the addition of ArchiveSocial, GWAVA now supports complete social media archiving for Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, Instagram, Vimeo, Pinterest and Google+” states Ken Muir, CEO, GWAVA. “To meet the needs of an ever changing environment, GWAVA and ArchiveSocial have partnered to solve a real problem around social media oversight and compliance.”
