Sonasoft Corp. (OTCQB: SSFT) announces OEM partnership with Globanet™ to extend archiving & eDiscovery capabilities beyond email with over 40 data sources including Twitter, Facebook, Slack, Yammer, Skype and more.

(As published on Nasdaq GlobeNewswire)
February 20, 2019 - San Jose, California and Los Angeles, California, Sonasoft Corp. (OTCQB: SSFT), a leader in innovative eDiscovery and artificial intelligence (AI) solutions, is pleased to announce an OEM agreement with Globanet™, a leader in data source and application capture for archiving, compliance and eDiscovery. This partnership will allow Sonasoft to integrate Globanet’s Merge1™ into SonaVault Archiving and eDiscovery Software Solution and extend SonaVault’s proven archiving and eDiscovery capabilities beyond email to over 40 different data sources.

Through the integration with Merge1™, Sonasoft can now archive, index, and produce data for an eDiscovery data request from Twitter, Facebook, Skype, Yammer, Microsoft Team, Slack, Symphony, and text chats. The Merge1 integration turns SonaVault into an open archive and expands Sonasoft’s reach into the enterprise market and allows Sonasoft to pursue new clients in the enterprise space.

This enhancement will allow organizations to achieve compliance and ‘future-proof’ their eDiscovery demands by preserving and indexing data from social media sources, file sharing and collaboration tools such as Box, Microsoft’s OneDrive, SharePoint, as well as with financial communication applications like Thomson Reuters, Bloomberg, UBS, and Symphony, which will further expand Sonasoft’s reach into the financial services and fintech sectors.

“This partnership with Globanet enables SonaVault to immediately become an open platform for archiving data for eDiscovery purposes and beyond,” said Frank Velasquez, CEO of Sonasoft. “This integration will open the doors to key enterprise accounts. We now have a total solution that achieves the requirement to archive multiple data sources and prepare them for eDiscovery requests. We anticipate that this upgrade will increase new customer adoption of our technology and directly contribute to the Company’s bottom line.”

“Integrating Globanet’s Merge1 to SonaVault creates exciting new opportunities and functionality for our customers,” said Hal Faden, Vice President eDiscovery of Cornerstone Technologies, a Sonasoft company. “SonaVault empowers organizations involved in litigation and eDiscovery, including compliance and internal investigations, to make informed decisions on legal matters through analysis of consolidated archived data. Users can assess the risks of going to trial, which prepares them for more educated settlement discussions than they would have had otherwise. SonaVault’s archive solution saves time, reduces costs, and increases defensibility.”

“We’re excited to formally ink this joint partnership between Sonasoft and Globanet,” said Sevag Ajemian, President and CEO of Globanet. “Sonasoft's SonaVault, which has true-end-to-end archiving and eDiscovery capabilities for the regulated and non-regulated markets, now includes Merge1’s ability to import data from multiple data sources; this will extend SonaVault significantly beyond just traditional email archiving, eDiscovery fulfillment, public service requests, etc. With over twenty years' experience, Globanet has been a pioneer in information governance. We developed Merge1 specifically to capture employee communications across a wide range of platforms including popular social media platforms. Enterprises need to know what their workforce is saying. The integration of Merge1 into SonaVault will help enterprises achieve regulatory compliance, reduce eDiscovery risks, and increase business intelligence. Our partnership is solid, and together we will fulfill a big demand in the market.“

The Company expects to complete the full integration of Merge1 into SonaVault Archiving and eDiscovery Software Solution by mid Q2.

Further updates regarding the company and its archiving and eDiscovery initiatives can be expected in the coming weeks.
