Jabber today announced that for a limited time its highly acclaimed secure instant messaging appliance, JabberNow, is available for as low as $1,800. Existing JabberNow customers can enhance the functionality of their secure IM appliance by purchasing additional user licenses and plug-ins at promotional prices that are up to 50-percent off of original list price.
The promotion, which runs through January 31, 2007, is an effort by Jabber, Inc. to promote the importance of secure instant messaging to businesses of all sizes.
“Organizations that use free, public IM systems for business communications are playing with fire. The productivity costs and security risks associated with consumer oriented IM can easily make “free’ systems expensive indeed. Commercial-grade, secure IM solutions are available now to wean companies off public IM,” said Dave Uhlir, vice president of marketing at Jabber, Inc. “The promotion on the JabberNow secure IM appliance is part of our effort to make it as easy as possible for people using public IM for business communications to move to a secure IM solution such as JabberNow.”
