FaceTime Communications announced the availability of IM Auditor 4.0 for greater control of IM to ensure proper compliance with the latest government regulations, in addition to enhanced productivity features and integration capabilities.
IM Auditor 4.0 provides new regulatory compliance workflow capabilities, including enhanced logging, auditing and reporting of all instant messaging (IM) traffic for any government-regulated industry.
IM Auditor extends the real-time management and control capabilities of FaceTime IM Director by providing specialized compliance features to ensure processes that meet regulatory compliance-auditing-workflow requirements.
The product seeks to enhance IT ease-of-use and end-user productivity, while providing integration with FaceTime technology partner-enabled e-mail content scanning, archiving, natural language processors and WORM-drive storage infrastructure.
While IM Director provides IM management features to ensure compliance with the USA Patriot Act, IM Auditor extends these capabilities to ensure any IM use by regulated businesses complies with the appropriate regulatory laws and governing bodies. These include: the National Association of Securities Dealers and the New York Stock Exchange.
Some new capabilities of IM Auditor 4.0 include: the ability to assign regulatory-compliance features at the group level with guaranteed logging, ensuring that no communications take place that are not audited. And the ability to administer and enforce levels of authorization that ensure communication-compliance standards between traders and other groups.
