Verizon IM: Good For Your Business?
Verizon's new hosted IM service has a great price point and plenty of security features, but comes up short in several areas.
Verizon Business announced today the availability of its Hosted Secure Instant Messaging, a pair of secure IM services based on Microsoft's Live Communications Server (LCS) software and Symantec's IM Manager. The services have the price point and capabilities to be both an IT dream and nightmare, depending on one's perspective.
