The Internet has changed. It’s no longer just about Web and email traffic. Instead it’s dominated by Web 2.0 applications such as IM, P2P, social networking, voice, and video. Today, these applications are pervasive in the enterprise, brought in by a new generation of employees.
Recognizing the benefits of these technologies, businesses are deploying enterprise-grade unified communications platforms such as Microsoft Office Communications Server and IBM Lotus Sametime that offer the full suite of UC capabilities including IM, web conferencing, video, and Voice over IP.
The combination of evasive consumer applications and enterprise-class UC platforms is leading to an increasingly heterogeneous and complex environment that multiplies the security, management and compliance challenges faced by IT today - issues such as inbound malware, information leakage, regulatory and eDiscovery compliance, and the need for a common policy and reporting framework to simplify administration.
Actiance helps businesses realize the benefits of Unified Communications by delivering security, management and compliance across the broadest set of platforms and modalities, ensuring integration with your existing enterprise infrastructure including active directory, databases, archiving systems and more.
