Active Policy Management - Preventing Non-Compliance Before It Becomes a Part of Your Permanent Record


A New Whitepaper From The Radicati Group, Inc. Explains the Need for Proactive Monitoring of Electronic Communications

PALO ALTO, CA, 02/24/2005 -- The Radicati Group, Inc. has published a new whitepaper entitled “Active Policy Management -- 3rd Generation Compliance for Today’s Corporate Environment.” The whitepaper provides a review of what regulations apply to a company’s electronic communications, what the traditional methods for monitoring electronic communications are, and how Active Policy Management (APM) offers a more proactive way to address compliance.

The biggest shortcoming of the traditional ways of monitoring communications such as emails is that they can only document an occurrence of non-compliance: they can’t stop it from happening. APM solutions use Policy Enforcement technology to automatically stop inappropriate messages from being sent or received. As a result, the company can have confidence its communication archives are free from any “smoking guns” waiting to be discovered by a regulatory agency.

APM solutions can be most beneficial to companies in heavily regulated industries. They can not only help avoid fines and sanctions from regulatory agencies, but can also protect public trust and corporate reputations.

Active Policy Management can be applied to email, instant messaging, website forms and industry-specific communications platforms (e.g. Bloomberg® terminals). As the volume of electronic communications grows, companies that are unable to stop employees breaching regulations and company policy will be exposed to greater risk.
