All transmitted messages and files are encrypted with strong encryption algorithms based on the Diffie-Hellman key exchange and CAST-128 algorithms. That is the first and primary way to make corporate and business IM safe and secure.
The server supports various modes to authenticate and authorize connected users. Choose the best way for your corporate and business infrastructure from the available authentication modes: Simple, Windows Authentication (SSPI) and Private login/password.
The centralized management of user groups makes it possible to organize a flexible IM structure with a list of assigned groups and send/receive-only permissions set for each user.
Online statuses allow users to see the current status of each user in their Contact List, i.e. Online, Away, Offline/Not available and control their own status.
Users can organize personal Contact Lists and access them from any workplace and location. Users are informed if there are new contacts available on the IM server and if they can be added to their Contact Lists.
Browse, search and view the entire message and file transfer archives. Print information for any period and for any person.
Easy, managed and secure distributing files and directories to client workstations. Important documents can be assigned and delivered to users from the server in a fully automated mode with a set of advanced flags.
The client software fully supports the Terminal Server, Citrix environments and the Windows XP Fast User Switching feature. Users can communicate even if they are connected to the same server via Terminal Client sessions or have open logon sessions on the same computer simultaneously.
Enable message exchange and file transfer even if some users are currently not available. Offline messages and files are automatically delivered by the IM server to the recipient when the latter goes online. Send urgent messages for high-priority tasks and notifications.
The messaging clients can be instantly updated from the central IM server. This feature allows to keep IM client versions up-to-date and to deploy new software updates and patches in a completely automated way without having to manually install it on all user computers. Branding lets you get instant messengers customized with your company logo.
Import user accounts from a global catalog and create the local users database on the server within a few seconds. Import accounts by choosing different criteria: by Organizational Units (OU) or by Groups. The server also provides integration options with a directory and can search and import accounts "on-the-fly" when new users connect.
Control the communication server and send messages directly from a command line interface. Send scheduled and instant messages to users and groups from third-party applications, scripts or batch files.
Send notifications and urgent messages and keep users updated on any events and information. These messages are automatically delivered by the server at the scheduled time at the specified intervals.
Activate the Confirmation Mode which pops up the client messenger when a message is received and keeps it on top of other windows until the user clicks the Confirm Message button. That is the best way to attract users' attention.
Takes few minutes to set up and start. Much easier to configure than Openfire and other XMPP (Jabber) servers.
