--AOL Chooses FaceTime for Instant Messaging Security and Management
America Online (AOL) has entrusted FaceTime, a Foster City, Calif.-based security and management software provider, with the responsibility and authority to federate with its messaging network. The new capability in FaceTime's IMAuditor server will process, authenticate and manage customers' passwords and identification information within their local networks thus removing the requirement to send this confidential data through the Internet to AOL. In addition, FaceTime will provide the technology that decrypts and logs encrypted messages sent over the AIM service to enable secure, compliant enterprise instant messaging practices.
"Entrusting passwords for the AIM service to a third party is a major responsibility," said Brian Curry, vice president, AOL Premium and Subscription Services, in the press release. "This announcement indicates the level of trust we have in FaceTime and the strength of their technology to securely authenticate and manage passwords and IDs, as well as log and decrypt encrypted messages sent through the AOL messaging network."
