WebQA partners with PageFreezer to Deliver Website Compliance for Governments

Woodridge, Illinois, December 21, 2016 -  WebQA announced today that it has partnered with PageFreezer to expand its Government Public Records Compliance Suite within its GovQA division. This new partnership will allow GovQA to offer industry leading website archiving tools to its base of almost 1,000 state and local government entities.

“We see a growing interest in archiving all forms of digital content at all levels of government,” said William Repole, WebQA COO.  “Because PageFreezer has a strong presence in both the commercial and government marketplaces through their broad range of archiving technologies, our partnership with them will provide the best technologies to our WebQA and GovQA customers.”

The partnership will focus on emerging interest in government websites as they are subject to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and Public Records Laws around the country.  These laws ensure government transparency and fair public access to records.  Many governments are collecting website metadata, preserving content in original file formats, and retaining materials for up to seven years.

“Most states require government agencies to archive both social media platforms and websites. And, with this partnership, PageFreezer can extend its reach further into the Public Sector.” said PageFreezer CEO, Michael Riedijk.

Both GovQA and PageFreezer currently offer their customers data processing and compliance services via multiple locations in the United States, Canada and Europe.

More Legal Lessons Learned: 5 Times Social Media Evidence Was Denied in Court

Digital content (like web pages, Facebook posts, and tweets) is increasingly being submitted as evidence during legal matters—but it isn’t always being admitted by courts. As with any other form of evidence, digital evidence needs to meet a certain standard in order to be deemed admissible—and in many cases this comes down to how the evidence was collected and authenticated. If the collection and authentication process wasn’t handled correctly—and the method employed didn’t prove authenticity beyond any reasonable doubt—the evidence typically would not be accepted.

Why You Should Use SHA-256 in Evidence Authentication

In a previous article, we discussed why hash values are crucial in evidence collection and digital forensics. Following on from that, it’s worth discussing why Pagefreezer specifically makes use of the SHA-256 hashing algorithm when applying a digital signature to one of our records.
