FaceTime tops protection league for IM Management

FaceTime Communications : 27 August, 2007  (Company News)
FaceTime continues to lead in the field of Instant Messaging protection with continued revenue growth.
For the fourth consecutive year, leading IT market research and advisory firm IDC has named FaceTime Communications the market share leader among instant messaging management vendors. The ranking is based on IDC's estimate of FaceTime's worldwide revenues for the IM market (not including Web security revenues), up 28 percent in 2006 from 2005.

FaceTime enables the safe and productive use of Greynets including public and enterprise instant messaging applications such as Microsoft Live Communications Server and IBM Sametime, and other real-time communications applications. FaceTime solutions allow organizations to block in-bound malware threats, prevent information leakage and maintain corporate, e-discovery and regulatory compliance requirements while realizing the productivity and cost saving benefits of real-time communications.

"FaceTime's continued performance and growth in the EIM management market reflects the company's alignment with current EIM management market opportunities," said Mark Levitt, program vice president for Collaborative Computing and the Enterprise Workplace for IDC."

The IDC study is called "Worldwide Enterprise Instant Messaging Applications and Management Products 2006 Vendor Shares: IM and Presence Are Ready for Broader Collaboration" (IDC #208000, August 2007). In this study, IDC estimates that worldwide revenue generated by sales of enterprise instant messaging (EIM) applications and management products grew to $325 million in 2006..

"More organizations are deploying enterprise IM to increase employee collaboration and productivity. This brings an increasingly heterogeneous environment where public IM and enterprise IM coexist," said Kailash Ambwani, president and CEO of FaceTime Communications. "Our customers want a single solution to secure and manage all their real-time communications, using an architecture that can extend to become the platform for broader enterprise-wide unified communications."
