Website archiving is the process of automatically collecting websites and the information they contain and preserving these in a lasting archive.
A 'web crawler' is used to crawl a website, extracting and saving information. Due to the complexity of modern websites, capturing a website with pixel-for-pixel accuracy has become a challenge for many businesses.
Web archiving is the only way of capturing web records in a form that’s timestamped and immutable, allowing organisations to replay their websites from a specific point in time.
Because websites provide easy access to information, they're regularly updated and constantly evolving. However, this also means that the content published can disappear just as quickly as it appeared.
Web archiving is helping businesses own the ‘digital truth’ by capturing accurate and legally admissible web records.
The key drivers behind web archiving include financial services compliance, brand preservation, litigation, and preserving information of cultural and historical significance.
Financial Services - Regulated firms archive websites to meet record-keeping and financial promotion rules from the FCA, ESMA, FINRA and the SEC.
Public Sector - Numerous national archives, governments and universities archive website data to remain compliant and preserve records of cultural and historical significance.
Brands - With brands at risk of losing their digital assets and legacy, they're adopting web archiving solutions to preserve their data to ensure they have an archive of what was communicated to their customers.
