FaceTime Communications Takes Stage at ITEXPO
By Tammy Wolf, TMCnet Copy Editor
FaceTime Communications, a company known for the safe and productive use of Unified Communications (News - Alert) and Web 2.0, is scheduled to present Wednesday, Oct. 6, at ITEXPO West on how businesses can better meet security challenges by extending enterprise security to UC applications and devices.
In the presentation, entitled “Security and Unified Communications: What You Need to Know,” Sarah Carter, vice president of marketing at FaceTime (News - Alert), will take the platform to share her security expertise on how UC implementations are different from traditional communications.
Carter will join a panel of industry experts – including TMC’s (News - Alert) group editorial director, Erik Linask – to reveal the measures organizations should take to ensure protection of its data when implementing UC platforms.
Other panelists include Drew Bloczynski, senior director of technology for Sipera Systems (News - Alert), and Jim Donovan, vice president of enterprise product management for Acme Packet. The session is scheduled for 1:45.
"UC platforms offer companies significant benefits and are a great productivity driver for many organizations,” said Carter. “However, for many organizations, implementing a UC platform does not remove the need to both secure it and review other communications tools in place. This is especially the case when companies begin a move toward federating their UC platforms with other companies, or communications networks, essentially dissolving the network boundaries.
"Our experience working with organizations to secure and manage their UC applications will make this session a must-attend for those looking to improve their enterprise security posture and meet security compliance mandates,” she continued.
