FaceTime Wins Best Security Solution for Financial Services

FaceTime Communications, Vantage has won the prestigious Best Security Solution for Financial Services in the SC Magazine Europe Awards.

Belmont, CA, May 02, 2010 --(PR.com)-- FaceTime Communications announced today that Vantage has won the prestigious Best Security Solution for Financial Services in the SC Magazine Europe Awards. Vantage ensures the security, management and compliance of real time and unified communications, enabling Financial Services organisations to do business more quickly, more profitably and more securely using collaborative communication tools.

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 winners were announced last night at the Wyndham Grand, Chelsea Harbour, London and FaceTime fought off competition from four other vendors to prove that Vantage was the best security product to meet the unique and highly demanding needs of the financial services sector.

Vantage provides organisations with a platform to deliver granular security, policy controls and compliance features for real time and unified communications including Microsoft OCS and IBM Lotus Sametime, public instant messaging platforms such as Windows Live and Skype, web conferencing and industry focused networks like Reuters, Bloomberg and YellowJacket.

“In the fast paced world of financial services communicating using a variety of tools from IM to Unified Communications, and increasingly social media, is an essential part of everyday interaction. However, just like any other form of electronic communication it must be able to withstand the scrutiny of rigorous regulation,” comments Nick Sears, VP EMEA of FaceTime Communications. “Features such as real-time logging and policy for Microsoft Group Chat, data leak prevention for file transfers, zero day worm protection, inline legal disclaimers and a full 360 degree audit capability make Vantage uniquely positioned in heavily regulated industries such as Financial Services.”

Vanatge 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.
