EdgeWave Leads the Security Industry With Launch of Powerful, Stand-Alone Social Media Security
SAN DIEGO, CA, Jan 08, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
EdgeWave Inc. today announced the launch of EdgeWave Social, an
industry leading cloud-based solution available for any and all
enterprises or organization to manage policy, filter threats, and
secure proprietary information on social media, while at the same
time enabling full and transparent use of social media and all of its
communications and collaboration benefits.
Social media is a top concern for companies, posing risks to
security, productivity and corporate reputation. As a result, many
companies are reluctant to allow social media in the workplace. But
blocking isn't an effective alternative, as motivated employees can
easily circumvent by using their mobile devices or other options. And
the risks are still there, keeping many security and risk managers up
at night. Simply put, if a company has employees they have a social
media issue today.
That has changed now with the launch of EdgeWave Social. Today every
company can safely allow social media in the workplace, fully
leveraging the benefits of increased customer engagement, partner
collaboration, and employee morale. As a cloud-based solution,
EdgeWave Social can get up and running immediately, with no need to
disconnect existing filtering, firewall, or other security
infrastructure. Seamlessly integrating with an organization's current
Internet security technology, EdgeWave Social makes it easy to set
policies and controls to protect employees and companies, including
automated alerts and granular reporting on security issues.
Monitoring and controls occur in the cloud, providing flexible and
responsive coverage on the organization's network and across mobile
"EdgeWave Social can benefit literally every company in America,"
said Steve Brunetto, Director of Product Management at EdgeWave. "As
the most used web application in the world, social media is
effectively present in the workplace whether a company officially
welcomes it or not. With EdgeWave Social, there is a simple solution
that makes it easy for companies to safely manage social media and
further empower employees."
Additional features and benefits of EdgeWave Social include:
-- Enforce and monitor rules-based policies for social networking
interactions, with granular feature-level control beyond standard
-- Prevent publishing of language inconsistent with corporate policy,
such as profanity, in real-time.
-- Identify and control individual social accounts by enforcing account
level policies around user and admin access.
-- Archive social media activity to reduce risk and meet regulatory
In November 2012, EdgeWave Social was identified as a technology to
manage the risks of social media in Forrester's 'Manage the Risks of
Social Media' report. EdgeWave and Forrester will be presenting a
complimentary joint webinar on January 23, 2012 to further analyze
the dangers of social media and discuss technology solutions
available for organizations that want to quickly manage and secure
social media. Details and registration for the free webinar can be
