Free Migration for AIM Enterprise Gateway Customers

Facetime provides the industry's only solution ensuring complete regulatory compliance for multi-network, heterogeneous IM environments

Foster City, Calif.-June 22, 2004-FaceTime Communications today announced it is offering AIM Enterprise Gateway (AIM-EG) customers and all AOL-certified IM management vendor customers, free migration to IM AuditorTM. FaceTime is also offering free technical support for all AIM-EG customers, resellers or partners to protect existing enterprise IM investments and mitigate the need for immediate migration.

"These customers originally selected AIM Enterprise Gateway, because of the proven FaceTime technology powering the product," said FaceTime senior vice president of Marketing and Business Development, Christopher Dean. "Now, that AOL has decided to end-of-life their enterprise IM offering, FaceTime wants to ensure that these valued IM users are transitioned to a complete solution ensuring the safe use of IM in the workplace. FaceTime and AOL's relationship continues to grow and expand in a number of exciting areas (Note RT Matrix release later today).

FaceTime will continue to support AIM-EG customers and when these customers are ready, FaceTime ensures the easiest upgrade path due to the shared technology base in the AIM-EG product.

FaceTime will offer AIM-EG and other customers of AOL-Certified vendors:

  • Free upgrade to IM Auditor

  • Free technical support for ease of transition

  • Free license to FaceTime's upcoming RT Matrix embedded APIs and SDKs to extend multi-network IM and presence capabilities %%Preferred pricing on RTG500, FaceTime's solution for ensuring IM application behavior management

  • A complete Defense-in-Depth approach, enabling both IM user policy management and network security against rogue IM and P2P usage.
