Government Agencies Adopt Backupify to Safeguard Social Media
Backupifyâ€™s Social Media Archiving Service Enables Open Governments to Communicate Safely with Constituents Online
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. June 21, 2011 –/BackupReview.info/– Backupify (http://www.backupify.com), the leading provider of online backup, archiving and export services for cloud-based data, today announced the addition of several new government customers, including NASA, The National Archives, the City of Rockford, Illinois, Marion County, Florida and Louisiana Economic Development, to the companyâ€™s list of government agencies and municipalities. Federal, state, local and international government organizations continue to adopt Backupify to protect their social media accounts such as Facebook and Twitter. With Backupify, these organizations can mitigate data loss concerns and satisfy compliance requirements that arise through the increased usage of social media.
As the leading online backup provider for cloud services such as Google Apps, Facebook, and Twitter, Backupify ensures that users can readily access and control this data while preventing it from loss due to external threats, user error or service failure. As governments must adhere to stringent records retention and data reproduction requirements for any information of public record, Backupify provides an independent backup and archive of all social media to satisfy compliance audits and legal requests. This critical layer of protection empowers government agencies to explore more advanced social media initiatives, including direct and public engagement with constituents, without the fear of legal and regulatory ramifications.
One of Backupifyâ€™s newest government customers, the City of Rockford, Illinois, utilizes the solution to archive all information posted to the cityâ€™s Facebook Fan Page and Twitter account. While the city continues to evolve its use of social media, before Backupify, officials contemplated halting activity without effective backup and retention policies and solutions in place.
â€œSocial media has become an essential tool to communicate openly with constituents. Unfortunately, there was no easy way to retain online information that may have been lost or deleted,â€ said Kevon K. Hayes, Web Developer and Administrator for the City of Rockford, Illinois. â€œThatâ€™s when we found Backupify. Backupify gives us the peace of mind we needed to engage with our community online. There is really no other solution on the market that provides the functionality of Backupify to help take the stress out of using social media for government purposes.â€
Other recent government agencies and municipalities using Backupify include:
“Social media is fast becoming the primary way that government agencies communicate with constituents online,â€ said Rob May, Co-Founder and CEO, Backupify. “Backupify mitigates concerns over data loss by ensuring that all social media information is archived and protected against inadvertent deletion, hacked accounts or service disruption.â€
