Acquia Unveils First Enterprise-Ready Content Moderation Platform in the Cloud 
Mollom Delivers Content Assurance, Solves Spam Problems That Cripple
Digital Experiences 
BURLINGTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/20/13 --  Acquia, the enterprise
guide to Drupal, today announced the general availability release of
the Mollom Content Moderation Platform. The first cloud content
moderation platform built for the enterprise, Mollom reduces the time
that's required to moderate large volumes of user-generated content. 
Business websites can be crippled by spam; more than 90 percent of
the content submitted to websites is unwanted spam, much containing
links to irrelevant sites and suspicious offers. Manually deleting
spam from comments, registration and contact-form submissions is
arduous work. Mollom solves the spam problem for businesses with a
cloud platform that filters and removes virtually all spam
submissions. 
"Unstructured data is akin to a Tower of Babel. Analyzing
unstructured text, removing spam, evaluating sentiment, and
accommodating multiple languages are all highly manual and
time-consuming and require painstaking efforts," stated the May 2012
Forrester Research, Inc. report: "Three-Dimensional Brand Health: A
Data Mashup." 
To date, Mollom has caught more than 2.2 billion spam posts across
more than 57,000 social websites and communities. With 99.98%
accuracy, the Mollom Content Moderation Platform helps organizations
embrace social marketing and community building confidently. Mollom
delivers content quality assurance with the speed, scalability and
reliability that enterprises require. 
The Mollom Content Moderation Platform enables organizations that
manage many websites to moderate all social content from a central
dashboard. New features in the Mollom Content Moderation Platform
include: 


 
--  a moderation dashboard that provides a single view of social content
    from hundreds of websites
--  machine learning and text analytics to identify potentially harmful
    content automatically
--  filtering of foreign language contributions and accurate sorting among
    75 recognized languages
--  moderation team workflow management tools, and
--  an enterprise-ready infrastructure supported by two geographically
    disparate data centers.

  
"Social engagement is driving a massive expansion of digital
experiences for both mobile and the traditional web," said Tom
Erickson, Acquia CEO. "With the Mollom Content Moderation Platform,
organizations can manage social content with the confidence that
their brand will be protected with our enterprise-ready content
assurance solution." 
By simplifying the content moderation process, Mollom provides
significant ROI for brands seeking to increase their social
footprint. 
"As the manager of a high-traffic Drupal site, nothing could be
simpler than to install and configure Mollom to moderate submissions
on all of our web forms," said Peter Chen, technical webmaster at
Stanford University. "Using cloud-based content moderation has
significantly decreased the spam that our site receives and increased
the happiness of our support teams and content owners. We also
benefit from Mollom's machine-learning technology, which helps us
create custom reputation, spam, and profanity scores." More than 600
customers have beta-tested Mollom's enterprise capabilities during
the past several months. 
Mollom supports social web communities powered by a variety of
platforms and libraries including Drupal, Java, Python, Perl, .NET
and Ruby; proprietary CMSs including Adobe CQ5 and Sitecore may be
supported through custom integrations. In addition to helping
organizations manage large volumes of user-generated content, the
solution can also support authenticated user validation and workflow
management for in-house moderation teams.
