SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/01/12 -- EdgeWave Inc., (OTCBB: EWVE) (OTCQB: EWVE), a leading provider of Secure Content Management (SCM) solutions, today announced iPrism Social Media Security, a new service that transcends traditional Web filtering by seamlessly monitoring and controlling user interactions with social media applications such as Facebook, Twitter and Google. iPrism Social Media Security positions the company as a global leader in social networking safety by enabling access to popular social media sites, while providing enforcement of acceptable use policies. iPrism Social Media Security protects enterprises and educational institutions from loss of proprietary, confidential and sensitive data, and gives them control over inappropriate content postings, while helping to prevent cyber bullying.
"With social media becoming the largest, fastest growing segment of Web traffic and an integral part of personal and business relationships, organizations can no longer adopt an all-or-nothing approach for enforcing Internet use policies," said Steve Kelley, SVP of Corporate Development and Product Strategy at EdgeWave. "iPrism Social Media Security is seamlessly integrated into the fabric of social media applications such as Facebook and Twitter to provide organizations with much needed visibility, control and protection against potential threats and liabilities associated with the social Web."
iPrism Social Media Security provides administrators with unequalled functionality for managing social media applications:
- Policy management interface enables easy-to-configure acceptable use policies for social media applications
- Industry-specific policy templates that are customizable to fit an organization's individual requirements
- Integrated, customizable reporting for visibility and regulatory compliance of social media activity
- Application-level content blocking and warning messages that provide an integrated user experience with applications such as Facebook and Twitter
"Monitoring student conduct online and in the classroom is an essential part of our responsibility as educators," said Larry Troisi, Technology Services Supervisor for the National School District. "With iPrism Social Media Security, EdgeWave has armed us with the necessary tools to thwart important issues, such as cyber-bullying and harassment, that have become commonplace with the adoption of social media applications among students."
iPrism Social Media Security is available for purchase with iPrism Web Security v7.1.
