Highly Acclaimed JabberNow Gets Even Better; IM Appliance Connects Businesses Directly with AOL's AIM Service, Integrates with Active Directory.

DENVER -- Jabber, Inc. today announced the immediate availability of JabberNow 1.1, the first major upgrade of the enterprise instant messaging (EIM) appliance which Jabber, Inc. launched to rave editorial reviews in late 2005. The company reports strong customer enthusiasm across its targets in the legal, consulting, financial services, government, higher education, and supply chain management market segments. In less than 15 minutes, JabberNow deploys secure instant messaging (IM) that compliantly interoperates with the technology choices of enterprise partners.

"In our user support center, JabberNow has streamlined the way we communicate and collaborate on projects and trouble tickets, especially time-sensitive items," said Michael Skiles, user support agent for Ropes & Gray. "It has made it easier for us to multitask, escalate trouble tickets, find resolutions, and ultimately notify their owners that a solution has been reached, which is elevating our level of user satisfaction."

JabberNow 1.1 provides out-of-the-box interoperability with GoogleTalk. The product also includes the AIM(R) Gateway from Jabber, Inc. which provides a sanctioned, secure, and auditable way for JabberNow customers to communicate with AOL's more than 41 million AIM service users nationwide. JabberNow 1.1 also includes optional add-on support for Microsoft's Active Directory.

In addition to the Message Archiving Lite that ships standard on all JabberNow appliances, a more full-featured Message Archiving Plug-in with enhanced reporting functionality is also available for sale with JabberNow 1.1.

"The new reporting functionality of the Message Archiving Plug-in enables keyword-, user-, and text conferencing room-specific searches of the message archive," said Joe Hildebrand, chief technology officer for Jabber, Inc. "Administrator sessions are now encrypted and we provide comprehensive security for server-to-server communications. This is of particular importance to customers in very sensitive environments such as those where Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), American Bar Association, and other compliance requirements weigh heavily."
