Actiance Extends Compliance Controls for Facebook to Mobile and Non-Corporate Devices

Provides Ability to Monitor and Manage Content Sent Through Mobile Devices, Such as iPhones, iPads, Android Tablets and Smartphones

BELMONT, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 13, 2011) - Actiance, enablers of the safe and compliant use of unified communications, collaboration and Web 2.0, announced today capabilities to archive and monitor Facebook Group, Fan and Personal pages, regardless of the device used to post the content.

Actiance's Socialite enables the secure, managed and compliant use of social media. Socialite's direct API access to Facebook enables the automatic discovery of personal and corporate Facebook Fan and Group pages to archive posted content, including image files, regardless of the device used to access the Facebook account. Socialite also enables an administrator to automatically take down unwanted content, such as profanities and brand damaging content, from Facebook Group and Fan pages.

"More than a third of Facebook's 600 million users now access the social network from their mobile devices. Smartphones and tablets have fundamentally changed the way individuals interact with popular social networking sites like Facebook and many of us rely on traditionally unprotected devices to access and update our profile, status and to share content rather than our corporate PC," said Sarah Carer, vice president at Actiance. "This activity is of the utmost concern for businesses, specifically those who are required to manage and archive all social media content in order to remain compliant with FINRA, FSA and other regulations. With Socialite, Actiance is able to give organizations peace of mind that their brand and reputation are protected. We ensure all interactions with Facebook are under control, regardless of device or platform, as we support Android, iOS, Symbian, webOS and BlackBerry operating systems."

The Actiance platform ensures organizations can protect their networks against inbound malware, mitigate information leakage risks and ensure that corporate, regulatory and e-discovery requirements are met
