Company's New Social Sentry Offers Real-Time Monitoring of Employee Social Network Communication to Protect Corporations, Preempt Damage

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - April 16, 2010) -   Teneros™, Inc., a market leader in messaging solutions, today announced that founder and vice president of marketing Manish Kalia will host a webinar on April 22, 2010 at 11:00AM PT covering how to prevent data loss and monitor content when faced with an employee base that is increasingly communicating via highly viral, rapidly growing social networks. This webinar follows the company's successful debut of Social Sentry, which empowers companies to monitor employee public activity on social networks such as Twitter and Facebook, helping to eliminate corporate risks related to compliance, leakage of sensitive information, HR issues, legal exposure and brand damage.

"Companies have long faced the threat of confidential or inappropriate corporate information leaking via emails or transfers but now this threat is exponentially greater due to social media's viral nature and public access," said Matt Weil, president and CEO of Teneros. "Businesses need to be able to have real-time monitoring of employee social network communication in order to protect their brand. They need an easy way to detect if a particular employee is disclosing confidential intellectual property, financial results or information about an upcoming product release without prior permission from the employer. Social Sentry brings companies an easy to deploy product to avoid company damage and data loss."

Social Sentry provides granular, real-time tracking and can identify and monitor employee public communication happening from any location, within the corporate network or public Internet. In addition, Social Sentry offers the ability to monitor select users or the entire employee base to eliminate corporate exposure related to communication. Because Social Sentry is a Software-as-a-Service offering, companies of all sizes can take advantage of a flexible, affordable and easy to deploy solution.

Social Sentry will be available later this month, with pricing to scale depending on needs. For more information, please visit
