Quest Software Policy Authority for Instant Messaging (OCS, Sametime, Jabber, etc.) Archiving, Compliance and DLP. Feb. 22, 2009.

Quest Software’s Policy Authority solution is an ideal solution for archiving, compliance and data leak protection (DLP) of Instant Messaging (IM) protocols including Office Communications Server 2007 R2, Lotus SameTime, Cisco Jabber, Reuters, Bloomberg, MSN, Yahoo, AOL and other IM protocols. Quest Policy Authority also supports archiving of BlackBerry PIN-to-PIN and BlackBerry call logs for compliance or tracking purposes. The solution is available in either software-only or appliance options, and is deployed in customers around the globe. In a manner of speaking, since MSN, Yahoo, AOL and BlackBerry all have Cloud Computing elements, Quest Policy Authority is an example of a customer-premises management solution being used to manage hybrid on-premises plus Software as a Service components.
