Why choose Hanzo Illuminate?

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 you to rapidly locate sensitive information and uncover unwanted workplace behavior, while categorizing non-linear channel conversations for quick intelligence. You can visualize content by heatmap and channel specifics, or via other AI-driven categorization models.

Hanzo Illuminate defensibly preserves and collects digital communications across hard-to-navigate collaboration apps – such as 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.

Previewing the structure of your Slack ecosystem with our 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 help you narrow relevant datasets based on key metadata or file content for export and review.

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.

APIs are a valuable way of connecting with data sources. However, with the rapid pace of new enterprise-level SaaS application adoption, waiting for purpose-built APIs for eDiscovery and compliance puts 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.
