Actiance, Inc. Key Developments

Actiance, Inc. Announces the Availability of Alcatraz

Actiance has announced the availability of Alcatraz, a cloud-based, context-aware archive for email, social, and other communications. Built on an architecture that is unique within the enterprise information archive market, Alcatraz simplifies governance and reduces the cost of eDiscovery by displaying dynamic content in context. Designed and developed on patent-pending technology, Alcatraz overcomes the technical challenges of storing and managing complex social and collaborative content - a struggle for traditional archives. Alcatraz employs an object-based approach to store any type of content, extract rich metadata, and scale with ease. As a result, Alcatraz has the contextual intelligence to discern and treat each communication channel separately and can scale horizontally to grow with the customers' data needs. Alcatraz also includes plenty of other features - like WORM compliance, to ensure retained content is immutable - to meet the needs of all organizations, especially those that are highly regulated and highly litigious. Alcatraz also features a robust API layer, allowing easy integration with partner solutions to meet an organization's broader eDiscovery and governance needs.

Actiance Appoints Trevor Daughney as Vice President of Marketing

Actiance announced the appointment of Trevor Daughney as vice president of marketing. This appointment supports the company's recent launch of Alcatraz, the context-aware, cloud archive for all critical business communications, including email. Daughney will further the company's growth within the information governance market. Daughney brings over 15 years of experience marketing enterprise SaaS software and technology. Prior to joining Actiance, he was senior director of global enterprise product marketing at Symantec where, among other responsibilities, he integrated the go-to-market strategy for their recent archiving and eDiscovery acquisitions.

Actiance, Inc. Announces Availability of New Licensing Option for Socialite

Actiance, Inc. has announced the availability of Socialite Feature Control, a new licensing option for Socialite. Socialite allows organizations to control, monitor and capture content and activities posted on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. The new licensing option lets organizations that have been reluctant to allow any use of these networks because of information governance or regulatory concerns mitigate risk so their workforce can listen to social conversations on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. The new licensing option for Socialite gives alternatives, from full access to read only access, so they can meet their governance and compliance requirements for different employee groups. The challenge is that in some organizations, especially within highly regulated industries, employees may be restricted in how they are allowed to participate on public social networks. In other, less regulated industries, organizations are concerned about protecting sensitive information and, because of this, may not be comfortable providing employees with full access to social networks. In these cases, access may be blocked entirely, leaving employees unable to observe social networking activities for business purposes. This is increasingly problematic as more public companies use Facebook and Twitter to release information like financial results, or to announce new products and organizational developments. Without real-time access to social media, employees may find themselves competitively disadvantaged as they do not have access to real-time updates and information found on social networks. Socialite Feature Control offers a lower-cost solution to this problem. It allows organizations to block or allow content posting and other interactive features of native social network websites when accessed from within the corporate network. This helps organizations provide the right balance between employee access to and control of public social networks. For example, they can allow certain individuals or groups to invite people to their networks or to modify their profiles while restricting everyone else to only being able to read social conversations.
