Reuters to offer FaceTime audits for new IM product

Reuters has struck a deal with FaceTime to offer auditing and logging capabilities as part of the live release of its new instant messaging product, which is currently undergoing final testing with 25 financial institutions.

Scheduled for commercial roll-out in the fourth quarter, Reuters Messaging will aim to offer institutions access to a fast, cost effective, encrypted, and firewall-compliant instant communications channel.

The alliance with FaceTime will enable Reuters Messaging clients who are also using other IM networks to meet their regulatory auditing requirements by content logging messages passed through the system.

FaceTime's IM Auditor will be used to record, store and supervise messages generated on Reuters Messaging and then aggregate them with all other IM communications in the enterprise. This functionality will give corporate compliance a single enterprise-wide IM compliance solution while enabling IT management to gain control of all IM communications through a single user interface.

As part of the alliance, Lewis Knopf, managing director of Reuters' collaboration services, will join FaceTime’s advisory board.
