Actiance Socialite Captures Workplace by Facebook Data in Context to Meet Retention and Compliance Requirements

With Actiance Socialite, company employees can share and engage using the latest public and enterprise social channels, like Workplace, while ensuring security, governance, and compliance needs are met.

"Actiance is continually expanding the number of channels its compliance platform supports so enterprises can effectively harness the power of emerging social networks, such as Workplace by Facebook, while keeping content and business safe," said Scott Whitney, SVP product management, Actiance. "With Actiance's modern, extensible architecture, businesses can easily deploy Workplace while continuing to meet compliance demands."

Today's enterprises are continually seeking tools that allow distributed teams to communicate and solve business problems faster and more efficiently. Moreover, as younger generations enter the workforce they expect personal social networking tools to integrate into their business environment. Workplace is architected to function like Facebook while allowing businesses to manage and create their own social networks amongst employees. Thanks to its widely familiar interface, Workplace is lowering the adoption hurdle for employees to start collaborating. That means the need to create and enforce policies for the compliant use of Workplace is even greater.

"Companies are spending unprecedented amounts on compliance initiatives and dedicating armies of employees to work on implementation," said Sean Pike, program vice president, Security Products, IDC. "As enterprises adopt new social channels, including Workplace, organizations should consider solutions such as Actiance Socialite to increase efficiencies, reduce costs, and create a culture of continuous compliance while providing high levels of visibility across the myriad of social tools to do business securely and compliantly."

Unlike traditional and ad hoc retention solutions, Actiance Socialite retains complex metadata on social communications platforms including third-party content capture, uploaded images, threaded comments, and user details. Enterprises deploying the Workplace platform can use Socialite to discover members and groups and capture communications using the admin API access. Not only does Socialite capture social communications data in context to streamline compliance, but it also retains the data in context on Actiance's archiving platform Alcatraz for smarter search, hold, and review.

Actiance Socialite with Workplace by Facebook support is available now. Learn more about Actiance Socialite.
