Actiance Socialite Available Through the EMC Select Program

Socialite Enables EMC SourceOne Customers to Meet Their Strict Compliance and Information Governance Requirements for Social Media

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 3, 2014) - Actiance, to help organizations benefit from communications, collaboration, and social networking, today announced that Socialite is now available through the EMC® Select Partner Program. Socialite enhances the information governance capabilities of EMC SourceOne -- the advanced archiving solution that improves user productivity and provides seamless access to archived email, files, and Microsoft SharePoint content -- by allowing EMC customers to archive social media and use SourceOne as a single on-premise repository for all their data sources. This solution helps organizations save time and money when it comes to regulatory audits, eDiscovery, or internal investigations.

Giving employees access to their communities via social networks, where they can openly share ideas and content, can be a challenge for a number of stakeholders, including Compliance, Legal, and HR. The leakage of confidential information or the posting of inflammatory or inappropriate content could potentially impact the corporate bottom line or brand. For organizations in regulated industries like financial services, pharmaceuticals, or healthcare, there may be specific rules and regulations governing the use and retention of social media. Not to be overlooked are legal and internal governance requirements that apply to all organizations. Given the litigiousness of today's society, being able to retain, find, and review social content quickly is critical to minimizing legal costs and avoiding sanctions.

Because Socialite provides a complete view of all social networking activities in context, SourceOne customers can better understand who said what when. With this deeper level of understanding, they can assess more quickly and accurately whether information is responsive to a discovery request or regulatory inquiry. Ultimately, the solution with SourceOne enhances the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of eDiscovery across the widest range of communications channels.

Socialite also allows EMC SourceOne customers to confidently communicate and collaborate over social networks like Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, by staying compliant with applicable governance requirements. Socialite provides EMC SourceOne customers with real-time content monitoring and alerting to ensure that sensitive information stays safe and the corporate reputation remains intact. 

"Our customers are looking for solutions that reduce complexity and risk for their organizations and Socialite does just that -- it enables them to manage the use of social networks like Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter within their organization securely and compliantly," said Russ Stockdale, VP/GM SourceOne. "Our collaboration with Actiance also expands the information governance solution for SourceOne by giving our customers deep compliance and eDiscovery capabilities across, not just email and files, but also real-time social channels that are becoming increasingly important in today's business environment."

"With our participation in the EMC Select Program, we're excited to help EMC SourceOne customers adhere to applicable legal, regulatory, or corporate requirements so they are optimally positioned to fully exploit the benefits of social media," said Kailash Ambwani, President and CEO of Actiance. "Communications today are a lot more complex than they used to be. By offering Actiance Socialite for EMC SourceOne we've created a solution that helps customers archive and discover all their communications efficiently and effectively."
