Information Management Leader Archive360 Launches Developer Program to Extend Business Users’ Access to Archived Data with Zero-Trust APIs

Archive360 | August 29, 2022

Archive360™, the archiving and information management leader trusted by enterprises and government agencies worldwide, today announced its Archive360 Extend developer program, giving customers and partners access to the company’s unique APIs (application programming interfaces) so they can leverage the market-leading information governance capabilities of the Archive360 Open Archiving Platform, extending capabilities of customer in-house developed applications as well as third party applications. As the only true Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution provider, Archive360 enables organizations to migrate and onboard massive volumes of data to the cloud, with full control over data security, privacy, access, and compliance. With Archive360 Extend, users can now benefit from one search to directly access, manage and extract relevant data from the Archive360 archive in the comfort and familiarity of their preferred applications, while professionals in the legal, IT and compliance units are assured that all data is being appropriately managed. “Companies offering vital services such as eDiscovery, internal and external audits and core business applications are not in the business of archiving and managing information - that’s our specialty,” said Robert DeSteno, co-founder and CEO of Archive360. “In today’s operating environment, skilled professionals prioritize working from the applications they access daily. Archive360 now makes it possible for these users to access and leverage data in Archive360’s repository from those apps with one search - in most cases, they won’t even know where the data is, only that their access is fully authorized and secure. More than a dozen partners have already joined this program, and over the next few weeks we’ll be announcing key partnerships with specific companies. Archive360 Extend represents a new advance in archiving and information management, and we’re just getting started.” The new program enables a seamless, secure and compliant connection between two complementary forces: the Archive360 information management platform’s ability to onboard, manage and store massive volumes of business data - including files, videos, audio, CRM, ERP, emails/electronic communication, social media and more - and companies specializing in complex disciplines such as eDiscovery and data analytics, serving business users who need immediate, authorized, and secure access to all relevant data resources without having to switch between applications. Archive360 enables participating companies to promote their offerings to a much broader market, including large and heavily regulated enterprises with massive amounts of data that need to be retained and managed securely in compliance with internal and external mandates. One Search User Access Archive360 APIs enable end users, with one search, to quickly, easily, and cost-effectively access, review and act on data from any system across their organization. And while the company leads the market with a unified platform - massive data volumes offering enhanced flexibility for easy and secure access - its APIs also come with major advantages. The collective benefits include: One Search: Greater visibility into any data source connected to the Archive360 archive, and greater control over that data: how it’s processed, stored, protected and managed, with performance tailored to meet specific business needs Scalability: Process and manage petabytes of data, rapidly, cost-effectively and dynamically scale horizontally and vertically to meet any workload Security: True Zero Trust data security with unparalleled PII protection - even system administrators can’t access the data without explicit approval Defensible Compliance: Ensuring data accuracy, compliance and reliability through immutable storage, data localization, and an audit trail to capture the complete chain of custody. Separate micro-APIs run in the right place across on-premises, in-country or overseas cloud infrastructures ensuring compliance with data localization requirements Risk Management: eliminating redundant, obsolete and trivial (ROT) information; replacing legacy systems; and optimizing storage Comprehensive Functionality: There’s one front-end API for ingestion, operations, monitoring, admin, records, discovery, machine learning and analytics, along with micro-APIs Open Framework: The APIs are extensible - for example, Archive360’s archive functionality can be seamlessly embedded into independent software vendors’ applications and customer portals Archive360 APIs are managed with a Zero-Trust framework that encompasses data threat surfaces, lifecycles, governance and more - a critical advantage in today’s operating environment. The company also adheres to an API-first philosophy: The APIs are consistent and reusable across the Archive360 platform and applications or portals accessing the data. Customers and partners can learn more about the Archive360 Extend developer program by speaking with their account representative or registering to become an Archive360 partner. About Archive360 Archive360 is the enterprise information archiving company that businesses and government agencies worldwide trust to securely migrate their digital data to the cloud, and responsibly manage it for today’s regulatory, legal and business intelligence obligations. This is accomplished by applying context around the search, classification, security, retention, disposition and indexing of data including files, videos, and emails—all while allowing organizations to maintain full control over privacy, access, and compliance. Archive360 is a global organization that delivers its solutions both directly and through a worldwide network of partners. Archive360 is a Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider, and the Archive2AzureTM solution is Microsoft Azure Certified.

Chariton Valley Commits To Protecting All Customers From Growing Cybersecurity Threats With Calix ProtectIQ Home Network Security

Calix | July 15, 2022

Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) announced today that Chariton Valley Telephone Corporation (Chariton Valley) expects to double its customer connections after providing ProtectIQ® home network security to all customers at no cost. Chariton Valley leverages the full power of Calix Revenue EDGE to transform its value proposition and improve the customer experience. In May, the 70-year-old broadband service provider (BSP) launched ProtectIQ, part of Calix Revenue EDGE Suites, as it continues to roll out GigaSpire® BLAST systems across its Midwestern communities. In a climate of increased cybersecurity concerns, Chariton Valley has equipped all GigaSpire BLAST customers with effortless access to robust home network security. In doing so, the BSP increases customer loyalty across rural regions and nearby cities in north-central and northeast Missouri. Many Chariton Valley customers have sophisticated internet habits—half identify as gamers and almost 40 percent work from home. By evolving its value proposition, the innovative BSP has also fortified itself against billion-dollar market cap competition in Palmyra and Hannibal. In its first two months of offering ProtectIQ to all customers, Chariton Valley blocked more than 48,000 web threats, intrusions, malware, and viruses from entering home networks—proving the immediate value of its investments. The comprehensive Revenue EDGE platform enables BSPs of all sizes to easily and quickly launch differentiating turnkey, managed offerings. Chariton Valley continues to evolve its value proposition and strengthen its growing customer connections by: Transforming its business to help communities thrive for decades. Chariton Valley is on track to complete a historic five-year, $42 million fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) buildout in its member service territory, and another $40 million in expansion opportunities next year by leveraging the secure broadband access network platform, Calix Intelligent Access EDGE™. In May, it began rolling out turnkey, managed offerings in EDGE Suites, starting with ProtectIQ, recently recognized by the cybersecurity industry as “Best in Anti-Phishing, Network Security & Management,” at no cost to its customers. As a result, Chariton Valley blocked thousands of web threats in only two months—further proving the value of its investment in the region. Creating internet experiences that grow with customers’ needs. After the successful rollout of ProtectIQ, Chariton Valley is now taking a targeted approach to introduce its second EDGE Suite, the advanced parental controls in ExperienceIQ®. Calix-partnered BSPs have seen a 178 percent increase in people using ExperienceIQ since the beginning of the year. Both ProtectIQ and ExperienceIQ are accessed through the BSP’s branded subscriber-facing mobile app, built on CommandIQ®, giving customers more control over their home networks. Leveraging data and insights to offer services that meet each customer’s unique needs. Using the insights and analytics in Calix Marketing Cloud (Marketing Cloud), even a small BSP like Chariton Valley can successfully leverage data for segmenting and targeting. For example, Chariton Valley uses Marketing Cloud to uncover which of its customers are most likely to need the advanced parental controls of ExperienceIQ. Now their marketing team can quickly identify the right people for the new service. This enables Chariton Valley to get maximum ROI from every dollar invested in marketing. “As a member-owned organization, the customer experience informs everything we do,” said Kirby J. Underberg, president and chief executive officer at Chariton Valley. “Chariton Valley is committed to the region’s future—the investment we made building a secure fiber network will benefit people living in north-central and northeast Missouri for the next three decades. However, we also understand that we are responsible for protecting our customers from the increasing threat of digital dangers that come along with the positive generational impact of secure, fast Wi-Fi. By adding critical services like home network security and advanced parental controls, we will continue to invest in our customers by providing superior internet experiences long after the latest deals from our competitors expire.” Along with ProtectIQ and ExperienceIQ, EDGE Suites also includes connected home camera security systems (Arlo Secure). Additionally, Calix is launching two new managed offerings this summer: social media monitoring (Bark) and connected device protection (Servify Care). “Chariton Valley’s incredible first two months offering ProtectIQ to all customers underlines why today’s successful broadband business must be about more than just fast Wi-Fi, ProtectIQ has helped BSPs of all sizes block millions of digital threats in 2022. The Missouri-based market leader competes against a billion-dollar market cap company and wins because it leverages the full power of the Revenue EDGE platform to easily and quickly launch turnkey, managed offerings like ProtectIQ that improve the customer experience. We look forward to supporting Chariton Valley’s continued growth as they evolve their value proposition to reflect their commitment to protecting customers in north-central and northeast Missouri.” Matt Collins, executive vice president of commercial operations and chief marketing officer at Calix About Calix Calix, Inc.
