Company to Discuss Security and Compliance Issues When Using Unified Communications Platforms; Showcase Award-Winning FaceTime Vantage Product

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - October 5, 2010) - ITEXPO West - FaceTime Communications (, the pioneers in the safe and productive use of unified communications and Web 2.0, will present at ITEXPO West 2010 on how businesses can extend their enterprise security to Unified Communications (UC) applications and devices to better meet security challenges.

Sarah Carter, vice president of marketing at FaceTime Communications, will discuss how UC implementations differ from traditional communications from a security perspective. Joining a panel hosted by TMC's Erik Linask, Sarah will suggest the steps organizations need to take in order to protect the organization and its data when implementing UC platforms. The session will take place at 1:45pm on Wednesday, October 6.

Security and Unified Communications: What You Need to Know
When: Wednesday, October 6, 2010, 1:45pm PT
Where: Los Angeles Convention Center
Moderator: Erik Linask, group editorial director, TMC
Panelists: Sarah Carter, VP marketing, FaceTime Communications; Drew Bloczynski, senior director of technology, Sipera Systems; Jim Donovan, VP enterprise product management, Acme Packet

"UC platforms offer companies significant benefits and are a great productivity driver for many organizations. However, for many organizations, implementing a UC platform does not remove the need to both secure it and review other communications tools in place. This is especially the case when companies begin a move toward federating their UC platforms with other companies, or communications networks, essentially dissolving the network boundaries," said Carter. "Our experience working with organizations to secure and manage their UC applications will make this session a must-attend for those looking to improve their enterprise security posture and meet security compliance mandates."
