InternetReputation.com Reviews its Long-Term Reputation Protection Programs

DENVER, Dec. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- When it comes to reputation management, some people only need short-term help to assist them as they overcome a small crisis. However, there are some people who face larger challenges and more in-depth problems, and these people might need to invest in more comprehensive solutions. InternetReputation.com is proud to announce long-term programs that can help clients who fall into this latter category.

A standard reputation-management client might do something ill-advised just once, and face a small flurry of coverage as a result. For example, a woman in 2009 was offered a job at Cisco and sent an ill-advised tweet about the offer. When the Cisco execs saw the tweet, that offer was rescinded.

"This is a pretty standard reputation management problem, as this woman's name is now linked to this tweet," says an InternetReputation.com representative. "If this story hadn't been picked up by the nationwide press, we could have probably handled this issue quickly and created a profile to remove the tweet from search engines. In just a few weeks, she would have been free of this reminder."

There are other people, however, who have more intensive issues and they might need lengthier contracts in order to heal the damage that's been done. People who see their stories picked up by media outlets, like the tweeter above, might be one example. Those who have lengthy online backstories might be another.

A blogger on Frisky seems to know this all too well. In her entry, she described a date gone wrong when a potential mate ran a search for her and uncovered an article she'd written for a risque website, outlining her preference for one-night stands.

"People who have spent a lot of time on the web, posting on multiple forums, writing articles, submitting photographs and otherwise leaving big footprints all over the web could be doing much more damage than they ever thought possible," says an InternetReputation.com representative. "Things we think are appropriate when we're 20 suddenly seem really off-base when we're 40 or 50, and it can be really hard to ferret out all of those potentially damaging details alone. Our company excels at that work."

People who have been arrested for a crime might also need long-term reputation protection, as the damage from incidents like this can be difficult to measure and to rectify.

"An arrest sometimes means news stories, and those stories can include names, addresses and photographs," says a company representative. "Arrests also mean mugshots, and there are hundreds of companies that collect these images and place them in searchable databases. Dealing with an arrest often means committing to long-range planning that can help people to move those damning documents down in search results."

Having a poor online reputation can result in romantic losses, but the damage could also be felt at the pocketbook level. According to Harvard Business Review, more than 75 percent of employers actively research their job applicants online, and more than 70 percent have chosen not to hire someone based on the information found in a search.

"It's hard enough for people to find a job in this tough job market, but a poor online reputation could really be the kiss of death when it comes to employment opportunities," says a company representative. "We hope that people with poor reputations will contact us and allow us to help. With a long-range plan, we really can make a big difference."

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...
