Proofpoint Selected by LinkedIn for Certified Compliance Partner Program

The Proofpoint Social Platform for Archiving Adds Best-in-Class LinkedIn Compliance Functionality Developed in Tandem With LinkedIn's Engineering Team

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/20/14 -- Proofpoint, Inc., (NASDAQ: PFPT), a leading security-as-a-service provider, today announced that it has been selected for inclusion by LinkedIn into the LinkedIn Certified Compliance Partner Program. As a result, Proofpoint's Social Platform Archiver for LinkedIn is now able to capture and archive content and context from features available only through LinkedIn's private APIs. The enriched LinkedIn features are a key component of the Proofpoint Social Platform for Archiving, providing a fully integrated set of extensible modules that allows organizations to maintain compliance in an increasingly social enterprise.

"Social media use is on the rise in regulated industries such as banking and healthcare, leaving CSOs and compliance departments with the ongoing challenge of ensuring that regulatory requirements are continually met," said Darren Lee, executive vice president and general manager for the Information Archiving and Governance Products Group at Proofpoint. "Our partnership with LinkedIn equips our regulated customers to leverage the power of LinkedIn to help drive their business, by enabling LinkedIn content to be captured, journaled and archived in accordance with regulations."

A 2013 Osterman Research survey found that enterprise use of LinkedIn grew to 33% in 2013, and is expected to grow to 64% by the end of 2014. The increase in LinkedIn use as part of an organization's daily workflow can leave many -- especially in highly-regulated industries -- unprepared to manage and comply with an evolving set of rules mandated by FINRA, the SEC, the FFIEC, HIPAA, the FTC or other regulatory bodies that oversee an organization's use of social media.

For social media use, archiving is an essential step to maintaining regulatory compliance, and the Proofpoint Social Platform Archiver for LinkedIn delivers a highly advanced feature set in the market. Key features include:

  • Direct connection to LinkedIn APIs - A cloud-based solution built expressly to meet the compliance needs of regulated organizations, with no on-premise software or hardware required
  • Expanded content and context capture - The ability to capture the full context of LinkedIn profiles, pages, updates, 3rd party comments, groups and more, as provided via the LinkedIn APIs
  • Archive agnostic - Content can be archived in the Proofpoint Enterprise Archive for storage in immutable form or sent to a company's existing archive solution
  • One view across social channels - Within the Proofpoint Enterprise Archive, LinkedIn content is integrated into a "single pane of glass" search capability, allowing customers to access social content and context data from LinkedIn and other social media sites. The same search capability can also extend to archived email, instant messaging and files collected from across the enterprise, including mobile

The Proofpoint Social Platform Archiver for LinkedIn is a key module within Proofpoint Social Platform for Archiving, which also captures and archives content from Facebook, Twitter, Chatter and Yammer.

The Proofpoint Social Platform Archiver for LinkedIn is available now. For more details, please visit http://www.proofpoint.com/products/archive-governance/social-platform/index.php.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
