FaceTime IMAuditor, Finalist for Best Security Solution for Financial Services

READING, UK--(Marketwire - February 24, 2010) - FaceTime Communications (www.facetime.com) announced today that it is a finalist in this year's SC Awards Europe. Short-listed for the award for Best Security Solution for Financial Services, IMAuditor is trusted by the top 10 US Banks and more than 1500 other organisations, where reliability, security and compliance with regulatory requirements is absolutely key.

Now entering its third decade, the SC Awards Europe are universally recognised as the most coveted and prestigious awards for the European information security industry. The SC Awards honour professionals working to secure enterprises, and the vendor and channel communities that deliver innovative security technologies. The Best Security Solution for Financial Services will be awarded to the product that has been designed, or has been found to be particularly suitable for the unique and highly demanding needs of the financial services sector.

"The financial services industry is one of the most heavily regulated in the world, yet the very nature of their business requires fast dissemination of information, to which today's internet communications tools are ideally suited," says Nick Sears, VP EMEA of FaceTime Communications. "Providing the balance between doing business collaboratively and securely whilst controlling the information released all within stringent regulatory compliance requirements is why FaceTime counts the top 15 global investment banks as its customers."

FaceTime IMAuditor ensures security and compliance with regulation-stringent e-Discovery requirements for one-to-one chat and group chat, instant messaging (IM) and Unified Communications (UC). IMAuditor logs and archives all IM, enabling authorised individuals to quickly search and retrieve all archived data along with files transferred. IMAuditor supports all leading IM networks, and UC platforms alongside Reuters and Bloomberg. IMAuditor applies security controls, implements ethical walls where required, inserts legal disclaimers and allows individuals to review their own chat logs.

IMAuditor is used by Fortune 1000 companies and financial services firms to secure and manage real-time communications and ensure that instant messaging and unified communications platforms can be safely used without compromising security, compliance, productivity, or allowing data leakage.

New features and functionality in FaceTime's Unified Communications solutions will be on display at stand 221, UCexpo 2010, Olympia, London, March 10-11.

The SC Awards Europe 2010 ceremony and dinner will be held at the Wyndham Grand London, Chelsea Harbour on Tuesday 27 April 2010.
