  • (1888PressRelease) April 16, 2011 - BELMONT, Calif - Actiance, enablers of the safe and compliant use of unified communications and Web 2.0, announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named its Vantage product as a recipient of its 2010 Unified Communications Magazine Product of the Year Award.

    Vantage from Actiance, enables enterprises to benefit from the cost savings and productivity of unified communications (UC) platforms, without exposing the enterprise to compliance or security risks. The de facto platform for granular security, policy controls and compliance, Vantage provides management for the widest variety of UC and real-time communications platforms including Microsoft Lync Server 2010, Office Communications Server (OCS), IBM Lotus Sametime, Cisco Unified Presence (CUP), public instant messaging (IM) platforms such as Windows Live Messenger and Skype, Web conferencing and industry-focused networks such as Reuters, Bloomberg, Pivot and YellowJacket.

    "As UC platforms continue to evolve and provide ever expanded collaboration and communications capabilities, they do not natively provide the capabilities to meet today's growing security, compliance and legislative requirements, nor do they ensure that users do not use other communications tools," says Kailash Ambwani, CEO of Actiance. "In today's world, threats hop from one medium to another and without the necessary controls in place, organizations are in danger of letting malware in and business-critical data leak out. This award from TMC acknowledges the gravity of the situation and Actiance's ability to mitigate the risk."

    "Actiance has proven they are committed to quality and excellence while addressing real needs in the marketplace. Unified Communications is pleased to grant a 2010 Product of the Year Award for Vantage," said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. "We're proud to honor their hard work and accomplishments and look forward to more innovative solutions from Actiance in the future."
    Product of the Year Award winners are published in the April 2011 issue of Unified Communications Magazine.
