Latest Release of Company’s SmartCrawl Technology in Cloud Preservation Product Delivers Advanced Archival Capabilities for Facebook and Other Websites Requiring Authentication
Nextpoint today announces a significant update to SmartCrawl technology in Cloud Preservation, the company’s web archiving service that securely captures data from social media and websites. Released in 2010, SmartCrawl technology offers an unprecedented level of customization to the crawling, rendering and capture of web-based content. With the February 2011 release, SmartCrawl now allows for detailed custom crawls to be performed on individual Facebook pages where user authentication is necessary.
Cloud Preservation’s SmartCrawl technology, which feeds specific navigational cues to the application during a crawl to engineer a desired return, can now access, archive and index individual Facebook account pages for users. This latest advancement also allows Cloud Preservation to authenticate a user session (with customer-supplied user credentials) on web sources of all kinds for the purpose of automated crawling and archiving of data, delivering the most comprehensive and accurate web archive technology available on the market.
“Cloud Preservation has been deployed by corporations and institutions of all kinds to build a forensically sound archive of their Internet-based content,” said Rakesh Madhava, Nextpoint CEO. “With SmartCrawl, our goal has been to allow customers total crawl-customization to ensure they have the complete archive of pertinent web-hosted data that they need. This latest release targeting the archiving of individual, password-protected Facebook pages was developed in direct response to customer demand. We are very excited to offer this advanced technology that allows users to preserve all Facebook data, Sharepoint intranets and any data repository that requires user authentication.”
