Happy New Year 2015

Amazing! 2014 was a banner year for PageFreezer and we’d love to walk you through the highlights. Over the last twelve months, we accomplished every single goal we set for the year and so much more. Check it out:

The team got bigger…MUCH bigger!
Back in 2013, we were in lean startup mode which meant our small team worked hard, worked smart, stayed focused. Early last year we hit the tipping point where we had more business than we could handle (a Cadillac problem, for sure) and we started building out our development, sales and support teams to seamlessly onboard the huge influx of new customers. We moved our corporate headquarters in brand new offices in Vancouver’s trendy Gastown District. We also launched PageFreezer Australia in August with the opening of offices in Melbourne. We now operate in Europe, Canada, the USA and Australia.

We felt the love & responded in kind
Nothing tells a company that its customers are happy more than renewals and referrals. Almost 99% of our client base renewed with us and even more amazingly, a staggering 38% of our new business came through referrals from our awesome customers. To show our appreciation, we have invested in the development of several great new features that we will release in the next few weeks.

PageFreezer tops the website archival acid test
At PageFreezer, we recognize that our success can only come through our client’s success, and that is delivered by offering the most robust, reliable & efficient archiving engine on the market. When combined with an incredibly easy-to-use, intuitive interface and great customer support, PageFreezer’s archiving solution delivers best-in-class quality. But don’t take our word for it. The Old Dominion University developed the website “Archival Acid Test” in 2014 and ran the top archiving tools and services through rigorous testing. Not only did PageFreezer come out on top…we were the only tool that passed all 18 tests and the only tool that fully rendered every test web page, including all advanced Web 2.0 features.

We formed some stellar partnerships
PageFreezer more than doubled its client base in 2014 and we formed partnerships that will continue to drive growth in 2015. We were honored to have Fortune 500 companies, government agencies, healthcare & pharmaceutical firms, law enforcement agencies, investment banks, big tobacco, HMO’s, broker-dealers, RIAs, non-profits and hundreds of other businesses in the private and public sector join our prestigious list of clients. We also moved towards being a platform provider by signing strategic partnerships in which we license our website and social media archiving platform to other technology vendors.

2015 and beyond

Yup. 2014 was a banner year indeed. Looking forward to 2015, we are going to start the year off by releasing WebPreserver©, a browser plugin that enables single-click capture of web pages, social media sites and other online content. Captured content is digitally signed & timestamped and can be exported directly into several leading eDiscovery platforms. WebPreserver provides a working environment for tagging, annotating and organizing content into folders. And we have more news and upgrades that we’ll tell you about later. Have an awesome 2015!!

PageFreezer tops “Archival Acid Test”

Web archiving continues to be a critical issue as companies and organizations search for the most foolproof methods of preserving their online content. There are numerous tools and services out there, but how can you be sure which one can stand up to its claims? The primary concern is that an archived page with complex content can be very hard to capture and replay perfectly.

To investigate the strengths and weaknesses of various archiving tools, the Web Science and Digital Libraries Research Group at Old Dominion University developed an “Archival Acid Test”. The test evaluates features which modern browsers execute well, but preservation tools often have trouble handling (such as Javascript, CSS, and HTML5 content). The researchers tested five web archiving services –,, (no longer functional),, and WebCite – along with the archiving tools Heritrix, WARCreate, and GNU Wget. The findings were published by the University in a paper, which revealed that none of the tools tested were able to fully render a captured version of the elements that displayed perfectly in a live web browser (such as Chrome).

Since PageFreezer is industry-leading in its ability to capture and replay web content, we asked the group to put our service to the test. The results were telling – PageFreezer was the only tool to pass every requirement, even advanced features!

Highlight of FINRA Annual Report 2013

FINRA is the largest independent regulator of securities firms in the United States that protects investors from fraud, punishes unethical industry behaviors and helps to resolve disputes between investors, brokers and securities firms. FINRA’s mission is to protect investors and to ensure market integrity. As of December 31st, 2013, they oversaw nearly 4,100 brokerage firms and 636,000 registered securities representatives. “Risk” and “Technology” were two important words that was emphasized throughout the FINRA’s 2013 Annual report. The two words are interrelated as companies must invest in more advanced technology to manage risk. The market surveillance program ensures that unethical trading and other abuses are detected. In fact, FINRA is changing its way to regulate in the following ways in 2013:

• Examinations of firms is data-driven, meaning FINRA collects large amount of electronic information from companies before actual examinations take place.
• FIRNA has invested nearly a quarter of annual spend on building and acquiring new technology (including cloud computing) to process data and perform market surveillance programs.
• FINRA’s board approved a plan to develop an automated system to collect account information that firms maintain as part of their books and records, such as account holdings and transactions.
• FINRA released an enhanced version of BrokerCheck which will allow investors to more easily check the background of a potential investment adviser

In summary, FINRA is embracing big data and investing in advanced technology to better manage and analyze information in an increasingly complex economy. They are also relying on technology to ensure companies and individuals in the securities industry are complying with regulations.

PageFreezer is a technology leader in website and social media archiving for financial services firms. Our solutions perfectly comply with FINRA and SEC regulations. Sign up for our weekly training session or contact one of our sales agents for more information.
