Cisco Ups The Ante

Cisco has announced this morning that it is buying PostPath, a maker of a Linux-based messaging & calendaring solution that competes directly with Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Domino. Cisco notes that they will use this acquisition to build advanced capabilities into WebEx Connect's SaaS-based services rather than offer PostPath as an on-premises solution.

WebEx Connect continues to mostly fly under the radar for enterprises planning out their UC & collaboration strategy, but it is increasingly obvious that Cisco intends to evolve Connect into a fully-featured, SaaS-based alternative to collaboration and communication suites from Microsoft and others.
