Actiance Vantage - Available for Resell Through EMC Technology Connect

Actiance Vantage Helps EMC SourceOne Customers Better Meet Their Compliance, eDiscovery and Security Requirements for Real-Time Communications

REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/02/14 -- Actiance, a provider of compliance, security, archiving and eDiscovery for all critical business communications, today announced that Vantage is now a Select partner within the EMC® Business Partner Program for Technology Connect Partners. Vantage extends the compliance and eDiscovery 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 controlling, monitoring, and capturing unified communications, public IM, enterprise social software, community networks and corporate devices. The combined solution allows EMC customers to manage and archive these real-time communications and use SourceOne as a single on-premise repository for all their data sources.

Giving employees access to each other and their communities via collaborative communication tools, 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. In addition, for organizations in regulated industries like financial services, pharmaceuticals, or healthcare, there may be specific rules and regulations governing the use and retention of electronic communications. 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 content quickly is critical to minimizing legal costs and avoiding sanctions.

Vantage is designed to meet an organization's compliance, eDiscovery and security requirements for real-time communications by monitoring and capturing all exchanges, in context. Vantage makes it easy to review and retrieve relevant information, and provide an audit trail for compliance purposes if required. Vantage helps organizations meet the requirements of government and industry regulations such as those mandated by the SEC, FINRA, IIROC, FRCP, HIPAA, and Sarbanes-Oxley. Supported applications include:

  • Unified Communications: Microsoft Lync/OCS, IBM Sametime, Cisco Unified Presence, Cisco IM and Presence
  • Public Instant Messaging: AIM, Yahoo! Messenger, Google Talk, Windows Live Messenger
  • Enterprise Social Networks: IBM Connections, Jive, Salesforce Chatter, Microsoft SharePoint
  • Community Networks: Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters, ICE Chat, Pivot, HubIM
  • Corporate Devices: BlackBerry call logs and PIN, SMS, and BlackBerry Messenger messages

Today's news builds on the recent announcement that Actiance Socialite -- a SaaS-based solution (with a mobile app) that gives organizations' employees the ability to ensure compliance for their Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter activities and content -- is available in EMC Select. As a result, customers can now control, monitor, and capture all their communications, and use SourceOne as a single on-premise repository for all their data sources.

"Our customers want the peace of mind that the real-time communications solution they have adopted doesn't compromise the organization's security or ability to comply with industry regulations," said Russ Stockdale, vice president of data protection and availability at EMC. "Today, with Actiance Vantage, SourceOne customers can archive conversations from unified communications, public IM, enterprise social software, community networks and corporate devices in their SourceOne archive, providing comprehensive eDiscovery while improving regulatory compliance and reducing security risks to the organization."

"Real-time communication channels are a mainstay in many organizations today as is the threat of data leakage, sanctions by industry regulators and litigation," said Kailash Ambwani, president and CEO of Actiance. "With our participation in EMC Select, SourceOne customers will be able to control and manage these channels to comply with regulatory, legal and corporate governance requirements."
