WEB 2.0 specific features filtering

The Web 2.0 represents an amazing opportunity for a company to increase its visibility and to target its customers with more efficiency,…

But the use of Web 2.0 also creates vulnerabilities for the company : decline of productivity, IT security risk, bandwidth reduction, information data leak, illicit web browsing or publishing,…

Olfeo has developed advanced features for web 2.0 filtering.

These features make it possible to customize administration rights on web 2.0 platforms according to the website’s specifics. It is hence possible to allow publications of comments, pictures or video on Facebook to the marketing department and to deny these actions to the sales department. On Twitter for exemple, Olfeo allows the marketing department to post tweets and the sales department to post answering tweets only.
