The DEMO Spring 2012 conference, the “launchpad for emerging technology”, is going on this week and, already, many great ideas have emerged from it. One of the key focuses of the conference is social technology. These are some of the best products so far, social or otherwise:
Websense’s Defensio for Facebook
Defensio for Facebook helps companies that use the social network protect their information. It prevents unwanted content, spam and spyware. Since spam-riddled Pages and discussion threads are very unattractive to customers and prospects, it is best to keep your Page free of clutter.
Users can set preferences so that they can moderate all posts on their Page’s wall. They can also block their Page from linking to certain sites.
Social relationship manager Nimble allows users to connect all of their contacts, calendars and communications. It currently integrates email, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn to bring all of your connections to one place.
Nimble hopes to make it easier for companies to maintain a dialogue and improve interactions with their customers. Once it is integrated with more social networks, it will become even more useful.
mSignia’s Dynamic Device Identity
mSignia works on Android devices to make access to cloud services easier. It secures your smartphone while eliminating the need to enter passwords on every site.
mSignia tracks your phone as well as the cloud services you access. Once you change phones, it will eliminate credentials on the old device so that phone can no longer access your information. Seeing as our mobile phones are often our primary means of accessing cloud-based services, this service could be a huge time-saver.
These products, along with many others being presented at the DEMO Spring 2012 event, make conducting business simpler and more seamless.
