New York, NY – March 15th, 2016 –MobileGuard, Inc., a pioneer in SMS/MMS archiving and mobile compliance has successfully helped numerous cities, sheriff departments and Government agencies in Florida and throughout the nation solve the challenges of text message retention as it pertains to the Open Records Laws.
Sunshine Laws for the State of Florida requires that all correspondence related to public business is public record. This includes mail, email, faxes, social media posts and especially SMS/MMS Text Messages. These text messages have been more of a challenge on the Apple iOS platform, but working with both AT&T and Verizon, MobileGuard is able to provide this “non-app”, easily provisioned solution throughout the State of Florida.
MobileGuard is already helping numerous counties and towns in Florida archive their text messages and prevent any Sunshine Law violations. MobileGuard is currently installed in Orange County, Orange County Sheriff, City of Orlando, Polk County, Panama City Beach, City of Fort Pierce, Clay County Sheriff, City of West Melbourne, City of Daytona, Port of Tampa bay, City of Hialeah, City of Islamorada, St. Lucie County and Volusia County Sheriff’s Department.
MobileGuard is currently working with Hillsborough County to put something in place and has a contract with Hillsborough County Airport. Palm Beach County, Miami-Dade and Jacksonville have also contacted MobileGuard in the past inquiring of their SMS and Mobile Compliance services.
“The demand for text message archiving has increased at all levels of government. Open Records laws, designed to allow access to governmental documents while protecting privacy rights and maintaining public safety, are being more closely monitored than ever before.” said Todd Michael Cohan, CEO of MobileGuard.
Beginning this year, MobileGuard’s suite of compliance solutions is now available to all state agencies through affiliation with the NASPO ValuePoint contract.
