NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - February 1, 2010) - Zapproved Inc., a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider with a platform that adds accountability to business communications, and D4, LLC announced today at LegalTech that the two companies have signed an agreement to form a strategic partnership for D4 to promote Legal Hold Pro, the industry's first pure cloud-based system for managing custodian notification and compliance for legal holds.

D4 is rapidly emerging as a leader in e-discovery services with its multi-phase approach to e-discovery and experience with state-of-the-art forensic tools. Legal Hold Pro meets a critical need for many of their clients by providing them with an effective litigation hold management system. The cloud-based system can be used immediately by D4's clients because there is no software to install and it requires minimal training.

"We see a strong need in the market for Legal Hold Pro because companies are becoming increasingly aware, as case law has evolved this past year, of the critical importance of effective legal hold notification," said John Holland, CEO of D4 LLC. "We rigorously vet technology and strive to provide best-in-class solutions for our clients. Through our vetting process we've been very impressed with the quality and design of Zapproved's product which is thorough and easy to implement."

"D4 offers a broad range of excellent e-discovery technologies and expertise and we are pleased to have them as a partner that understands the importance of a sound legal hold process," said Monica Enand, President and CEO of Zapproved. "Our Legal Hold Pro product coupled with their experience and customer focus is an ideal match."
