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 When the Cisco execs saw the tweet, that offer was rescinded.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."

The demand for organizations to expand their infrastructure to multiple IT environments like the cloud, on-premise, mobile, bring your own device (BYOD) and the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to grow. As this hybrid infrastructure increases, the challenge to monitor the security of these systems increases in volume and complexity. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Stephen Coty, Chief Security Evangelist at Alert Logic, will show how properly configured and managed security architecture can...
We’ve worked with dozens of early adopters across numerous industries and will debunk common misperceptions, which starts with understanding that many of the connected products we’ll use over the next 5 years are already products, they’re just not yet connected. With an IoT product, time-in-market provides much more essential feedback than ever before. Innovation comes from what you do with the data that the connected product provides in order to enhance the customer experience and optimize busi...
Unless you don’t use the internet, don’t live in California, or haven’t been paying attention to the recent news… you should be aware that self-driving cars are on their way to becoming a reality.

If you don’t believe in the future possibilities, then I am not sure what to do to convince you other than discuss the very real changes that will roll out with the consumer producti...
A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights. At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approache...
The increasing popularity of the Internet of Things necessitates that our physical and cognitive relationship with wearable technology will change rapidly in the near future. This advent means logging has become a thing of the past. Before, it was on us to track our own data, but now that data is automatically available. What does this mean for mHealth and the "connected" body? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Lisa Calkins, CEO and co-founder of Amadeus Consulting, will discuss the impact of wea...
See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...
Many private cloud projects were built to deliver self-service access to development and test resources.

As the rapid adoption of containers continues, companies are finding that they lack the operational tools to understand the behavior of applications deployed in these containers, and how to identify issues in their application infrastructure. For example, how are multiple containers within an application impacting each other’s performance? If an application’s service is degraded, which container is to blame? In the case of an application outage, what was the root cause of the outage?

Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
Much of the value of DevOps comes from a (renewed) focus on measurement, sharing, and continuous feedback loops. In increasingly complex DevOps workflows and environments, and especially in larger, regulated, or more crystallized organizations, these core concepts become even more critical. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Andi Mann, Chief Technology Advocate at Splunk, will show how, by focusing on 'metrics that matter,' you can provide objective, transparent, and meaningfu...
