  •     "Social communities provide tremendous opportunities for organizations to communicate in new ways internally, and with customers, that can improve productivity and increase customer loyalty," said Jim Zuffoletti, President, OpenQ. "However, regulated industries cite fear of compliance concerns as the number one challenge for social community adoption. OpenQ’s SafeGuard alleviates these concerns across all regulated industries, allowing companies to embrace social media while remaining compliant with SafeGuard’s policy-driven signature analysis engine to increase adoption and mitigate risk."
  •     "We are incredibly excited about adding SafeGuard’s day-one compliance ready policy enforcement to Salesforce Communities. This new addition allows customers to enforce policies not only for internal and external social platforms but also in the extended enterprise that Salesforce Communities create for marketing, services or sales teams," said Otavio Freire, Chief Technology Officer, OpenQ. "The targeted social channel monitoring and data collection enables enforcement for all aspects of policy, including privacy and firewalls, archiving and e-discovery. Not only are we are able to enforce policies for each of a company’s individual communities, but we also allow these to be managed individually by their specific community admins. Another major advantage is that we are also monitoring any file attachments shared in Salesforce Communities, ensuring all types of collaboration adhere to company standards."
  •     "Companies are looking to transform the way they connect with customers, partners and employees to thrive in the social and mobile era," said Leyla Seka, vice president AppExchange and Partner Operations, "By leveraging the power of the Salesforce Platform, OpenQ provides customers with the right technologies needed – such as out-of-the-box social compliance solutions — to accelerate business success."
