20 years of leading data management

Built for Today’s Biggest Technology Challenges

ZL Tech has been a leader in information management for the past two decades, solving the biggest compliance, governance and privacy challenges for companies across the Fortune 500 and beyond. At the core of ZL’s vision is its unique differentiator, a unified architecture that centralizes billions of documents and all governance functions under one platform, eliminating today’s fractured data silos.

ZL Tech began in 1999 as an email security company, expanding its scope over the years to address storage management, compliance, eDiscovery, records management, and now, analytics and privacy. Whether it was the Sarbanes-Oxley Act in 2002, or new privacy regulations such as GDPR and CCPA, ZL Tech has constantly evolved to match the most difficult challenges of the time.

A Scalable and Centralized Solution
for Silo-Based Data

As enterprise data has become increasingly silo-based—stored in disjointed repositories from file shares, email, databases, cloud applications, etc.— the unique requirements for data management have simultaneously converged. Compliance, legal, records management, analytics and privacy all interact with the same data, so they must interact with one another. As many vendors seek to adapt by acquiring and integrating other products, ZL Tech instead has remained at the forefront of information governance by maintaining 100% of its source code and staying true to its unique vision: a scalable and centralized architecture for all enterprise data.
