FaceTime releases new Vantage software

For security, management and compliance of unified communications.

By CBR Staff Writer

FaceTime Communications has released a software offering Vantage for the security, management and compliance of real time and unified communications.

The company said that the new software expands support for UC platforms such as Microsoft Office Communications Server (OCS) and IBM Lotus Sametime and offers security and compliance controls for Skype in the enterprise.

The new software provides supports for OCS Group Chat, compliance archiving, ethical wall creation for Microsoft Live Meeting, and Call Admission Control (CAC) to manage resource allocation. It also provides support for logging IBM Lotus Sametime announcements, file transfer capture, scanning and controls and a host of compliance features including ethical walls, inline disclaimers and data leak prevention, FaceTime said.

The company said Vantage enables the control of Skype features and integrates with Microsoft’s Active Directory to link Skype buddy names to individual employees. Vantage policy framework allows granular policies to be defined between groups of employees and for communications with non-employees through federation and PIC (public IM connectivity).
