Cihcago, IL (PRWEB) October 25, 2011
Nextpoint, Inc., the nation’s leading provider of cloud-based software for regulatory, compliance, and legal purposes, today announced an agreement with the nation’s largest municipality, the City of New York, for a pilot program to archive all of its social media content via Nextpoint’s Cloud Preservation service—an immediate, on-demand solution that allows users to securely preserve multimedia content from social networking sites, blogs and public-facing websites.
Cloud Preservation will automatically and iteratively archive the city’s extensive and ground-breaking use of social media channels, including over 100 social media feeds from 40 different city agencies that serve a population of over 8 million people. Featuring support for a wide array of Internet-based formats and social media platforms, including Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube and Flickr, Cloud Preservation actively preserves text-based content and multimedia files in a secured, searchable population, which can be accessed at any time through a browser-based interface.
Rachel Sterne, New York City’s Chief Digital Officer, says, “We are pleased to be working with Nextpoint on this initiative and look forward to a successful implementation and ongoing relationship.”
“Cloud Preservation is being deployed by corporations, municipalities, law firms, and institutions of all kinds to develop a defensible, forensically sound archive of its Internet-based content, including social media,” said Rakesh Madhava, Nextpoint CEO. “We are excited to count the great city of New York as a customer.”
