Nayatek teams up with FaceTime to deliver comprehensive archiving, eDiscovery and Compliance Solutions for Instant Messaging and Unified Communications
PHILADELPHIA and BELMONT, Calif. – June 17, 2009 – Nayatek, the developer of the next generation content archiving platform, Datosphere, and FaceTime Communications, the leading provider of solutions enabling the safe use of Web 2.0 and unified communications in the enterprise, announced today they have partnered to deliver a solution for comprehensive archiving, e-Discovery and compliance for instant messaging and unified communications.
The Nayatek solution, integrated with FaceTime’s IMAuditor, sets a new standard for content archiving of business communication. Nayatek’s’ Datosphere is an integrated content archiving platform built on a dynamic grid architecture providing comprehensive archiving, storage management, e-Discovery, business continuity and compliance functionality to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of electronically stored information (ESI).The upcoming launch of the Datosphere IM solution will be based on a deep level of integration with FaceTime’s IM Auditor solution which insures security, management and compliance for unified communications - from presence and instant messaging to conferencing and voice.
The integrated solution will ensure that all IM and unified communications conversations, file transfers, and associated metadata can be logged, archived, discovered and retained. The deep level of integration between IM Auditor and Datosphere provides clients with more robust e-Discovery options as Datosphere indexes a richer set of metadata and IM transcript information than other solutions. Clients benefit directly in e-Discovery or internal investigation scenarios as they can more quickly ascertain the context and appropriateness of electronically stored information to the case at hand thus saving time, effort and money.
According to FaceTime’s October 2008 study, The Collaborative Internet: Usage Trends, Employee Attitudes and IT Impacts, 51 percent of IT Managers said they could not reproduce IM conversations in a timely manner. Thirty-eight percent reported they have no such capabilities and 13 percent said they could do it, but not in any practical time frame.
“Practicality is a key component of success with archiving and retrieval of electronic communications,” said Nick Sears, vice president of EMEA for FaceTime Communications. “Nayatek’s integration of FaceTime’s IMAuditor technology will greatly improve its customers’ ability to easily archive - and more importantly - quickly and easily reproduce - IM and UC conversations in a timely manner to meet compliance and eDiscovery requirements.”
"Today, organizations are increasingly hyper-connected to their clients, suppliers and partners through IM, social networking and Unified Communications platforms such as Microsoft OCS and IBM Sametime as they see it enhancing their competitive posture. In addition to driving more IT complexity, the security, management and legal and regulatory compliance implications are significant,” said Scott Lehmann, senior vice president of Product Management of Nayatek. “We chose to pursue a deeper level of integration with FaceTime’s marketing leading IMAuditor solution in order provide customers with a secure, encrypted centralized archive for all of their ESI, including IM and UC data that would allow them to easily reduce the business, legal and regulatory risk associated with these forms of business communication,” Lehmann added.
