Reed Technology Launches Web Preserver
Reed Technology and Information Services Inc. (ReedTech.com), part of LexisNexis, announced the launch of Web Preserver, a SaaS-based webpage capture and archiving service for corporations and government. The Web Preserver service provides researchers the ability to quickly capture and preserve a fully functioning webpage, including all of the links and associated metadata, with one simple keystroke.
Reed Tech’s Web Preserver service is designed to quickly and efficiently capture web pages of interest, preserving them in a private and highly secure data center. The forensically preserved web records are easily retrieved in their fully functional original layout and format for review, for use in court cases, audits, to support records management retention guidance, and more.
Recent studies show that almost 30 % of today’s URLs disappear within 3 years of creation, with the average web page lasting just 44 days. * “Reed Tech’s latest technology innovation is specifically designed to help our clients preserve their web research as it existed on the day it was captured, giving them a significant strategic retrieval advantage as web pages age over time,” said Dave Ballai, CIO and vice president Commercial Solutions for Reed Tech.
