PageFreezer Adds SMS/Text Message Archiving Solution

PageFreezer has released a compliance archiving solution for SMS/mobile text that further expands its product line. In addition to providing website, social media, and corporate chat solutions, PageFreezer now offers archiving of text messages for both employer-issued and personal mobile phones.

Research shows that many employees spend as much as 33% of their time on mobile devices, and a lot of that involves sending and receiving text messages.

“Despite the popularity of email, social media channels, and enterprise collaboration platforms, a lot of business communication still takes place in the form of mobile text messages. These messages enjoy incredibly high open and response rates, so it’s a crucial communication channel for many organizations. With this in mind, it made sense for us to add SMS/text archiving to our list of solutions,” says PageFreezer CEO Michael Riedijk.

PageFreezer Adds Text Message Archiving Solution Offering

The decision to add text archiving was also informed by the fact that many organizations are required by law to keep detailed records of SMS/text messages. This includes public-sector entities, financial services, and healthcare organizations.

“Many of our customers need to comply with FINRA, SEC, GDPR, and MiFID II regulations. Our government customers, meanwhile, need to comply with the Freedom of Information Act or various Public Records Laws. With this new offering, we distinguish ourselves as a vendor capable of providing a complete archiving solution across website, social media, corporate chat, and SMS data,” says Riedijk.

PageFreezer offers customers two SMS/text archiving solutions: Carrier Archiver and BYOD Archiver. Carrier Archiver captures messages directly from the mobile carrier at the network level and automatically archives them. It works with both the latest smartphones and legacy devices, and does not require the installation of an app or a separate number, which makes it ideal for employer-issued devices.  

The second option, BYOD Archiver, separates business and personal messages on a single device, making it perfect for BYOD environments. It uses an app associated with a business number that archives all text message content, and creates a complete audit trail for compliance and security purposes. It works with any Android or iOS device, and tracks when messages are sent, delivered, read, and answered. As with other PageFreezer solutions, all data is stored on secure servers and can be searched and viewed through a user-friendly browser-based dashboard.

How Schools Can Manage Official Social Media Accounts and Protect Student Privacy

With many schools boasting large and active communities, it’s unsurprising that social media has become a  popular tool in education. Social media platforms offer an engaging way to share information and connect students, parents, and teachers. A Facebook page or Twitter account makes it easy to inform everyone that school has been closed because of snow, remind parents of important upcoming events, or simply celebrate the latest team win. 

The Best Way to Place Social Media Data on Litigation Hold

With so many people active on social media these days, it’s hardly surprising that posts and comments on platforms like Facebook and Twitter often feature prominently during legal matters. This means that legal professionals have an obligation to protect relevant social media data from spoliation, but the challenges that come with these modern information sources extend far beyond willful destruction of evidence.

Social Media Evidence Spoliation and Preservation

No case better illustrates the risks of social media spoliation than Lester v. Allied Concrete Company. The plaintiff had lost his wife in a tragic vehicle accident and was suing for wrongful death. Unfortunately, some Facebook photos came to light that his lawyer was afraid would prejudice the case, and he consequently told his client to delete them. “We do not want blow ups of other pics at trial,” an email from the law firm read, “so please, please clean up your Facebook and MySpace!”
