New Canadian Security Company Fighting Worldwide Corporate Espionage and Advanced Attackers

Information theft, or hacking, is extremely common in the business world. Companies with the most valuable information are under constant attack and need of sophisticated defense team. The Arc4dia team of experts has years of practical experience in the field of high-level cyber attacks and can help businesses to protect their privacy.

Snow Cover is the main defense service offered by Arc4dia. It is the first cyber security monitoring service truly aimed at advanced persistent attacks. Unlike the plethora of other services claiming to protect organizations against advanced persistent threats (APTs) while relying on the same technologies and people behind Anti-Virus, Arc4dia defense service is built from the ground up to provide a real fight against the advanced attackers using strategic and transparent techniques.

For a company with sensitive information, installing security software is not enough. Hackers constantly evolve, using new exploits to get past stationary defenses. That means a company’s defense strategy must also evolve in response. “We’ve helped clients to get rid of an attacker they didn’t know they had before we came in. The only hint the client had in a span of three years, was that they started losing critical contracts to a foreign competitor ” said Roberge, Arc4dia founder.

For a limited time, Arc4dia offers Early Snow Program as a trial for Snow Cover. ESP is a program aimed to organizations that are likely to be victims of advanced targeted attacks. This program is completely free. The main benefits to the program participants: cutting edge 24/7 surveillance, evolving detection and immediate mitigation of targeted threats, and all this in transparent manner that won’t impact the running of your business.

Research Now, the leading global online sampling and data collection company, today announced the gradual launch of its improved Valued Opinions programme to over 200,000 active members in Australia. Enhancements include: a modernised website and new identity; increased member communications and support resources; access to a complete history log; social media integration; the introduction of quick polls; a greater variety of rewards; and a complimentary Smartphone app.

Since its first launch in the United Kingdom in April 2011, Valued Opinions 2.0 has seen a 25-30 per cent increase in response rates, a 20 per cent increase in panellist conversions, a 46 per cent increase in average page views, and a 72 per cent increase in time spent on the site.

“Following a successful launch in the United Kingdom and the United States, we are excited to offer this enhanced programme to our panellists in Australia,” said James Burge, Managing Director of Asia Pacific at Research Now. “With the ability to further engage panel members in the survey process, the latest developments will result in higher retention and response rates, and ultimately a healthier panel and superior targeting information to reach specific populations.”

Valued Opinions 2.0 will allow for greater support and guidance to ensure that Valued Opinions Panel members get the most from their experience through enhanced member communications, such as regular member updates, improved Frequently Asked Questions, and tailored communication based on a data-led communication strategy.

Additionally, quick polls invite members to participate in short topical questions and compare their answers with the rest of the panel. Through the new Quick Poll forum, members can comment and interact with fellow members regarding the latest poll ideas, and also suggest poll topics.

Furthermore, the introduction of Valued Opinions 2.0 offers members a greater selection of rewards to choose from, as well as a referral programme that incentivises members for recruiting new panellists to the programme.

Internet Reputation Management Offers Free Analysis And Ability To Control Online Reputation

When companies are lagging in search engine results, or the online content that does show up is negative in nature, they turn to Internet Reputation Management to put things right.

Over 100 companies -including some that are household names- have taken advantage of Internet Reputation Management’s services, and now that expertise is available without charge, through a free reputation management online consultation.

Because the Internet is an open platform, anyone can write anything about any company, product or individual. This is often a good thing, but when a negative review, unflattering photo or embarrassing video shows up at the top of a search page, online reputation suffers. Potential clients or customers don’t always scroll down through those poor results to read the rest. When people say that the web is forever, it’s not an exaggeration. Negative material doesn’t simply disappear from the Internet, it has to be made irrelevant by having positive or neutral material replace the bad in search results. However, sometimes the cure can be as bad as the disease. Poorly executed search engine optimization (or SEO) looks unprofessional, especially if search results point to material that’s been poorly written. Using spamming techniques only aggravates customers further. The Internet Reputation Management team includes editors and wordsmiths who are based in North America and are subject matter experts. Editors have advanced literary degrees, ensuring well crafted content, and the experts in SEO know exactly which strategies are most effective. They work closely with their client to devise an effective strategy, remaining accessible throughout the project. The entire team is dedicated, professional, customer-focused and discrete.

The California-based firm creates a customized plan for each client, a plan that includes a 90-day, money-back guarantee.

Insure Your Company's Positive Reputation with Internet Reputation Management

A preventative plan from Internet Reputation Management mirrors the firm’s successful repair plans in many ways, as both sculpt search engine results and utilize aggressive search engine optimization methods. A preventative reputation management online plan begins with the identification of existing positive information about the business online. Next, Internet Reputation Management creates additional positive information in the form of websites, blogs, social media profiles, reviews and press releases.

Lastly, the firm uses its proprietary search engine optimization techniques to push the positive information about the business to the top of search engine results for its name and relevant keywords. This preventative strategy allows the business to dominate the first pages of search results for the terms. If negative information does become attached to the search terms, the business already has a strong grip on the important first pages. Only about 3 percent of search engine users make it to the last result on the first page, much less the second page. Essentially, the preventative plan serves as an insurance policy for the business, one that covers its reputation management online.

Regain Control of Your Company’s Online Image with Internet Reputation Management

In today’s world, even a company that does business fairly and provides excellent customer service can find its online reputation tarnished by a single disgruntled customer. Such is the power of the Internet. When this happens, savvy companies turn to Internet Reputation Management, a California-based firm that specializes in repairing online reputations by re-engineering search results and deploying aggressive search engine optimization techniques. Internet Reputation Management incorporates its proprietary strategies into a customized reputation management online plan for each client, a plan that includes a 90-day, money-back guarantee.

May, 2010 – The customer is always right. This approach helps companies diffuse unhappy customers and retain a positive reputation in the marketplace. What happens, though, when an unhappy customer airs his grievances with a company online? Often, the customer does not relay relevant details or include the company’s efforts to make things right. His consumer reviews unfairly paint the company in an unflattering light, and those negative reviews make their way to the top of search results for the company’s name. Internet Reputation Management can help a company in this situation regain control of its online image by re-engineering search results and utilizing aggressive search engine optimization methods. Based in California, the firm never resorts to spamming to achieve results, and all reputation management online efforts are kept confidential and appear organic in nature to search engines and customers alike.

A reputation management online plan from Internet Reputation Management includes a multi-pronged approach: 1) Identification of existing positive information about the company online; 2) creation of additional positive information in the form of websites, blogs, press releases, reviews and social media profiles; 3) aggressive search engine optimization techniques to push the positive information to the top of search results for the company’s name and/or targeted keywords. The result: Negative information falls to the second and third pages – and beyond – of search results. Studies show that only about 3 percent of search engine users click on the last result on the first page, so imagine how few users make it to the second or third pages of search results.

Internet Reputation Management has more than 100 successful online reputation repair projects under its belt. The California firm also prides itself on accessibility, as many companies have made reputation management online situations worse by going with an overseas firm that applies canned techniques, often involving spam. Internet Reputation Management provides documented, positive results within the time specified in the reputation management online plan for each client and its “Agreement for Services.” If it cannot deliver documented change in 90 days, the client will receive a full refund. Case studies and client testimonials – for other services the firm provides, as reputation management clients are kept confidential – are available on Internet Reputation Management’s website, along with an FAQ and a helpful glossary.

Internet Reputation Management Has Helped Over 100 Companies Repair Their Online Presence

Internet Reputation Management, the gold standard for protective and defensive measures has now successfully completed over 100 projects, each designed to help a company control the way it’s perceived online. By working with a client to build a growing network of carefully designed favorable content, search engine results begin to be dominated by the “good” results, the key to successful reputation management. Online is the only game in town for many companies (and individuals), with Google or MSN results making or breaking the way in which prospective customers see them.

April, 2010 – After passing the milestone of successfully helping 100 customers repair their online reputation, California based Internet Reputation Management has proven itself the gold standard in this increasingly important field. In a world where a single dissatisfied customer or even a kid out to have some fun at someone else’s expense can post derogatory material on web sites, social media outlets and product review boards that becomes the first thing potential customers see when searching on Google, reputation management online is a critical service.

SERM, a common term used to describe Internet reputation management (the service, not the company) can take several different forms, depending on the challenge facing the client. Prophylactic or protective reputation management online involves a wide range of techniques such as keyword research, SEO (Search Engine Optimization) copywriting, image and video SEO, social media optimization and consumer review management. The goal in this case is to help the company dominate the top listings for key consumer level web tools like Google, Yelp, and Google Maps, as well as providing a dominating presence in blogs, social media sites and among PR firms. This form of Internet marketing ensures that a company is the first one that prospective customers find online, that the impression they get from what they see about the company is positive and that the content is natural looking and not obviously part of a coordinated effort.

Proposed European Legal Move Planned To Regulate The Use Of Cookies Could Have A Profound Negative Impact Upon Some Of The World’s Biggest Businesses

Bigmouthmedia has warned that a proposed European legal move to regulate the use of cookies could have a profound negative impact upon the some of the world’s biggest businesses.

In a move that threatens affiliate marketing, bid management and web analytics, proposed amendments to the 2002 European Communities Directive on Privacy and Electronic Communications would mean that in future, websites would only be able to place cookies on visitors’ computers if they give their express consent.

“This is a proposal that would strike at the very heart of what the digital economy is all about. The ability to measure, track and improve the site experience for visitors is key to the success of e-commerce, and given the potentially damaging effect this could have on a multi-billion pound business channel, suggests legislators don’t quite appreciate the havoc they could cause,” said Andrew Girdwood, Head of Search at bigmouthmedia.

“This isn’t really a privacy issue. More often than not, cookies only contain data to measure the success of keywords or affiliates. We support attempts to raise awareness of privacy issues and provide internet users with more control but believe these functions would be better provided by the browser than the website. This would give users even greater flexibility and more consistency.”

Many areas of the digital marketing business could be seriously affected if the proposed legislative changes come into effect, with big names from Amazon to Google likely to be hit. Services dependent on using user data to track sales such as affiliate marketing would suffer significantly, while pay-per-click advertising services would be forced to ask permission to place a cookie every time a user attempted to follow a link.

If the amendments go through, commercial web sites may be forced to run multi million pound search campaigns without having a detailed understanding of how well the strategy is performing. Most modern forms of web analytics, meanwhile, would also be threatened by the European proposal.

The experience of visiting commercial websites could also be badly affected. Sites may be forced to display a pop-up message – commonly associated with invasive advertising – in order to seek the visitor’s permission before any tracking could be used. Over all, the loss in transactions combined with the cost of implementation would stretch to many millions of Euros in lost revenue each month for online retailers, travel and finance sites.

Full details of the proposed legislative change and its possible ramifications are available through bigmouthmedia’s digital news service.
