Hilton Head Island MLS Picks Threewide to Protect Data

 

Morgantown, W.V. – February 15, 2006 – Threewide Corporation announced today that the Multiple Listing Service of Hilton Head Island, Inc. will be installing both ListExporter™ and ListSecure™ to enhance its data management and distribution.

“With the real estate industry’s recent growing demand for data distribution, we must acknowledge the security and privacy issues at hand,” said Yvette Acuff, Chief Executive Officer for Hilton Head Island MLS. “After much research, we found Threewide’s ListSecure and ListExporter to be two of the best products on the market today. They offer outstanding, yet fundamental features that provide our organization with a significant tool for enforcing MLS data privacy to better serve our members.”

ListExporter is designed to efficiently package and distribute real estate data and images. With ListExporter, users can export listing data and photos for scheduled delivery to virtually any location in a variety of industry standard or custom formats. ListExporter is currently assisting many MLSs, both large and small, with this cumbersome, yet critical, task and moves tens of millions of records and images each month.

ListSecure is Threewide’s latest security software that is designed to detect and track the misuse of vital MLS data and images in the marketplace. ListSecure is able to provide solid data protection by bringing together industry proven data encryption methods, data tags, image watermarks, and one-time-use files. Extensive audit trails show when data and images are retrieved and by whom to easily identify the misuse of data.

“The combination of ListSecure and ListExporter is a necessity in today’s market,” said Mark Wise, Chief Product Officer for Threewide Corporation. “We are excited to be able to provide Hilton Head Island MLS with proven products to upgrade its overall data security plan. We are confident that our products will raise their organization to new heights for data security and control.”
