Asynchrony rolls out secure IM for cautious companies
Asynchrony Solutions Inc. rolled out a new secure instant messaging (IM) product Monday that it developed in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD), figuring that if it's secure enough for the DOD, it's secure enough for your enterprise.
The communication and collaboration software maker unveiled Envoke, a server and client side secure IM system, at the Instant Messaging Planet Conference in San Francisco.
Envoke offers buddy lists, multiple-user chat, secure file transfer, saving and logging of chats, and e-mail forwarding of offline messages. The system is interoperable, with cross-platform support and allows users to bridge the product with other collaborative systems such as Lotus Sametime Calendar events and Microsoft NetMeeting Conferences.
