New York, NY (PRWEB) May 05, 2011
Today TextGuard™, the leading provider of mobile device communication compliance solutions, announced that it has partnered with UK-based Quira Limited, a leading provider of information security and business compliance solutions, to provide TextGuard’s mobile messaging capture archiving and compliance solution to the United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland and Western Europe.
The TextGuard solution allows organizations to capture, index, monitor, preserve and produce from smartphones SMS text messages (and from BlackBerry devices, Blackberry PIN-to-PIN and BlackBerry Messenger messages) for regulatory and legislative requirements. The solution provides audits, e-discovery requests and other corporate information security policy and governance.
“Quira provides a range of information solutions to the European market, including its QuiraPro solution for ISO27001 information security compliance. TextGuard joins a small number of software solutions which will help organisations ensure that they remain fully compliant with legislation and regulatory requirements. Additionally, organizations which use TextGuard, improve their information security and risk management by monitoring employee use of corporate mobile devices” said TextGuard founder and CEO, Todd Cohan.
“Mobile messaging content, like other forms of electronic communication, is subject to increasing compliance rules, which require organizations to manage and produce their electronically stored information in a timely and complete manner during litigation” said Chris Jones, Director of Quira Ltd. “With recent changes announced by the UK Financial Services Authority (FSA) to remove recording exemptions from mobile telephones, including electronic communications from such devices, we are pleased to be partnering with the market leader in this space”.
This partnership will allow Quira to develop client relationships within the UK, Ireland and Western Europe for the TextGuard and IMGuard solutions, and is the first stage in a programme of co-operation between the two companies.
