Simple Screenshots are Not Enough!
Screenshots and simple PDF files can be easily altered with readily available editing tools. Digital evidence requires proof of authenticity under the Federal Rules of Evidence (FRE) 901. Per FRE902, social media evidence not self-authenticating. New additions to FRE 902, sections 13 & 14, further strengthen the requirement for forensic preservation.
Social media evidence must pass the same barriers as other types of trial evidence: relevance, authentication, and Rule 403, among others.
American Bar Association
Since 2018’s Cambridge Analytica scandal, collection has been difficult due to platforms like facebook limiting API availability.
Moreover, recent and ongoing changes to social media platforms further complicate proper preservation of content, both in terms of complete data collection and privacy considerations.
WebPreserver is a future-proof, automated social media and website forensic preservation solution that fully meets the standards of forensic electronic evidence, and solves the problems associated with API-based social collection methods.
Capture online evidence with one click
Preserve web pages and social media profiles you need using our single-click plug-in feature – they’ll immediately be preserved as forensically defensible evidence.
Auto-expand social media comments, replies
Our auto-expand feature, which automatically expands collapsed comment threads and long “read more” posts ensures all hidden content is captured; not just what would typically appear in your browser. This saves your team hours, and in some cases days of work.
Export in Searchable PDF
Traditional PDFs are static, and unable to be searched by keyword. Not so with the WebPreserver searchable PDF, which allows end-users to quickly locate content relevant to the case.
Export in Dynamic format
WebPreserver’s Professional and Enterprise editions grant end users the ability to export preservations in their browsable native formats, providing full context, high fidelity archives.
eDiscovery export files (EDRM-XML,DAT)
Webpreserver offers various export file format options, including EDRM-XML and DAT, which enables our clients to significantly streamline eDiscovery workflows.
LEGALLY ADMISSIBLE FOR EDISCOVERY
We collect metadata and HTML source code, and place a digital signature and timestamp on all preservations, creating sound, reliable evidence that complies with the E-Sign Act, Federal Rules of Evidence, and other regulations.
RESOLVE ANY CONCERNS OF SPOLIATION
All preservations are stored on your local hardware to protect your legal chain of custody and mitigate intellectual property issues. We don’t store your data remotely!
EFFORTLESS USER ADOPTION
WebPreserver streamlines the process of capturing and storing preservations for evidence. Preserve, store, organize, and export within the same user-friendly platform.
Our customers build the platform
"WebPreserver’s ability to auto expand social media comments has been a game changer for us. This feature has allowed us to more quickly execute on client requests. Additionally, having the preservation capability delivered through a browser plugin means that we do not have to manage software installations in order to get updates and regularly released feature enhancements. WebPreserver is a welcome addition to our toolkit."
"I am very willing to provide WebPreserver with an excellent recommendation. We began using it last year and have been very pleased with ease of use and how well it works just like it states. On a side note the customer service has been excellent as well."
"The evidence WebPreserver captures is great and the fact that it packages up the evidence in WARC format which is criminal court compliant gives us and our clients confidence that it will stand up in court."
"We are able to collect social media data on multiple platforms with a single click, rather than manually taking screenshots, which used to take days to accomplish."
"WebPreserver is an easy-to-use browser-based tool that captures posts like incriminating Facebook admissions, credibility destroying tweets etc. and preserves them with "evidentiary quality" for use in prosecution, litigation or administrative proceedings."
