Aware Simplifies eDiscovery for Slack Business Plus with Slack Data Upload
Over 100,00 companies, including nearly 80% of the Fortune 100, use Slack for collaboration. However, companies using Slack's Business Plus plan may struggle to manage this dataset for eDiscovery, compliance and more. Teams are reliant on exporting JSON files from their Slack tenant and need to manually comb through them one-by-one to extract relevant messages. These native JSON files are difficult to read and thorough evaluation takes significant time and resources.
Currently available tools designed to ease the burden of reviewing JSON files require access to Slack’s Discovery API, only available on costly Enterprise Grid plans. This presents a significant hurdle when attempting to efficiently conduct early case assessments or fulfill DSARs.
Enter Slack Data Upload, Aware's latest product designed for Slack Business+ customers. This tool empowers users to effortlessly manage their Slack data, eliminating the headache associated with native JSON files.
