Clearvale the Latest Social Network for Business

Social networks like Facebook are proving to be wildly popular among consumers and similar services are gradually making inroads in the enterprise. But there have been bumps along the way in terms of security and privacy concerns.

A number of companies already offer social network services targeted at business with more management and security features than their consumer counterparts. Datamation reports on the latest offering from established enterprise provider Broadvision.


Does the world need another social network? BroadVision thinks so, particularly when it comes to businesses wary of consumer sites like Facebook that have had privacy and security issues.

On Tuesday, BroadVision (NASDAQ: BVSN) formally launched Clearvale, a social networking site geared toward enterprises. BroadVision said Clearvale's been under development for the past two years and several companies, including Aeroxchange, Softbank Telecom and Synaptics (NASDAQ: SYNA), have been actively using a beta version that's been available for about ten months. Softbank is also a channel partner of BroadVision and plans to offer a white label version of Clearvale.

BroadVision said Clearvale has been engineered to be simple to use and set up for creating in-house and public facing Web sites.
