Actiance Vantage for IBM Sametime

Tab navigation

Actiance Vantage for IBM Lotus Sametime addresses the security, management, and compliance of Unified Communications (UC), including user policy management, message hygiene, malware prevention, and archiving for compliance. Enterprise communications environments are heterogeneous, consisting of the “enterprise” UC platform and typically several public instant messaging (IM) networks, including those publicly available networks that do not connect with the corporate messaging platform.

Vantage provides granular security and compliance controls for Sametime, public IM networks, and industry-focused IM communities such as Thomson Reuters Messenger, Bloomberg, and YellowJacket. Designed to meet an organization’s security, management, and compliance requirements for real-time communications, in addition to supporting all the key government and industry regulations (e.g., FISMA, FINRA, SEC, FRCP, Sarbanes-Oxley, MiFID, and FERC), Vantage delivers additional benefits to native Sametime implementations.

  • + Business opportunity

    Security and Compliance of Instant Messaging:

    With the increased use of workplace IM and P2P comes the associated risks and challenges of protecting sensitive company information. Mandated measures for monitoring and protecting proprietary and confidential information were once industry best practice - now prudence and law require them across multiple industries.

    IM poses a unique set of challenges - logging and archiving, unauthorized use, circumvention, loss of confidential information, and network security risk - just to name a few. Adding to this complexity, government agencies are beginning to crack down on regulatory non-compliance, imposing harsh financial penalties on those that do not comply. Actiance's solutions address IM compliance requirements for companies of all sizes and industries, including regulations that require logging and retrieval of electronic communications.

    As organizations deploy enterprise IM solutions such as IBM Sametime, use of freely available public IM clients typically continues, thus increasing the risks of malware on the network, loss of confidential information and non-compliance with corporate and regulatory policies. Actiance provides total visibility and control over all types of IM with granular features that protect businesses and help them enforce the use of Sametime by blocking access to unauthorized public IM clients, increasing the return on investment on Sametime.
