Air2Web releases 2IM 2.0
Posted on 3-May-2005 09:16 | Tags Filed under: News



Air2Web has launched the 2.0 release of their 2IM product, an IM solution that provides employees with mobile access to top Enterprise and Public IM services from the most popular wireless handsets.

2IM supports Sametime, Jabber, and Microsoft LCS (Live Communication Server) from RIM Blackberry, Treos, Windows Mobile-based devices, J2ME phones, and very shortly BREW phones. Air2Web has licensed 2IM to enterprises, as well to wireless carriers who are deploying it to corporate customers.

IM use within the corporate environment is on the rise, contends Nate Root, senior analyst at Forrester Research. "IM use is growing. Somewhere between 50% and 80% of North American workers are using IM in the office," said Root.

According to IBM, the Lotus Sametime service has between 11 million and 12 million users, plus an additional 10 million to 15 million users who have Sametime capabilities, such as presence awareness and instant messaging, available within their Notes messaging and collaboration environment.

The 2IM platform provides corporate users with some significant security services. Air2Web protects enterprise information systems and data by using two-factor authentication through certificates and message encryption. Two-factor authentication verifies user and device identity, while message encryption preserves message integrity during transmission between users.

The quantity of instant messaging threats increased 250 percent in the first quarter of 2005, compared with the same period last year, according to a recent report issued by the IMlogic Threat Center, an industry consortium led by security software maker IMlogic. The research, which tracks viruses, worms, spam and phishing attacks sent over public IM networks, also contends that reported incidents of newly discovered IM threats have grown by 271 percent this year.

2IM Users have access to chat capabilities including multiple, simultaneous chat windows; buddy lists and the ability to add, remove, block and confirm buddies; time stamps on messages; status of online state (busy, on the phone, etc); notification Mechanisms including tones, vibrate, vibrate plus tone, tone muting and more.
