Growing in popularity over the last few years, instant messaging (IM) is rapidly becoming a core component of the electronic communications infrastructure. IM is intended primarily to enhance traditional forms of communications, such as E-mail, phone and FAX by adding valuable technology-specific features like immediacy, presence capability, and enhanced privacy and security.
Immediate delivery of information is essential in today's competitive business environment. That's why businesses in many industries are discovering the benefits of using instant messaging software in performing everyday tasks. The business use of IM is not limited only to sending popup messages over network. Instant messaging applications are also used to collaborate on group projects and exchange data more effectively. However, free public server-based instant messengers and chat clients like AIM (AOL), MSN, ICQ, Yahoo! and other IM services are not secure enough to be used on private enterprise networks as a communications tool for business. After such an instant message leaves the enterprise firewall, it is then transferred across an insecure public network (the Internet). This may lead to leaking sensitive company data and information. This is a key reason why companies of all sizes choose to buy alternative enterprise instant messaging (EIM) packages instead of choosing between public instant messenger clients and free E-mail-based messaging services.
Alternative peer-to-peer IM applications as well as office instant messaging software offers plenty of advantages over public web messengers and simple LAN chat programs. Designed to be run on secure corporate intranets, LAN messengers do not require an Internet connection to operate. This adds a high level of privacy and security to this type of instant communication, ensuring that no one else but the intended recipient will be able to read the contents of your instant message. Some corporate instant messengers feature thin client compatibility, enhanced logging and security options combined with strong encryption technology and user authentication. Such full-featured but cost-effective instant messaging solutions are well suited for corporate and small or home office (SOHO) environments.
