Jabber, Inc. Announces SEC Compliant Archiving for Instant Messaging

New Release of Jabber Communications Platform and Partnership With Redmind

Deliver SEC Compliant Archiving Tools and Application



Jan 31, 2002, 00:00 ET from Jabber, Inc.

    DENVER, Jan. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Jabber, Inc. a leading developer of
 software for extensible instant messaging (IM), whose investors include Webb
 Interactive Services, Inc. (Nasdaq:   WEBB) and France Telecom (NYSE:   FTE),
 today announced Jabber Communications Platform Version 1.2., which centrally
 logs all Instant Messaging traffic for organizations requiring a server-side
 record of all user conversations.
     Built around the XML-based Jabber open protocol, Jabber Communications
 Platform (JCP) delivers an engine on which service providers, enterprises, and
 software developers create custom messaging, VoIP and other collaborative
 solutions.
     With this latest version, financial service companies and other enterprise
 customers can now capture messages exchanged across the network between
 employees and customers.  The captured data can be used for logging full
 records of all IM traffic to deliver SEC compliant archiving, or for general
 administrative and diagnostic purposes.  Companies have the option of building
 their own archiving applications using Jabber XML output, or working with
 Jabber partners to customize an archiving application specific to their needs.
     Jabber also announced a partnership with Redmind, Inc. to integrate the
 Redmind Genius Archive application with JCP, providing a full-featured
 SEC/NASD compliant archive, search and retrieval capability based on the data
 output of the Jabber server.  Genius Archive is a leading financial data
 retrieval package, incorporating natural language processing technology to
 enable administrators to locate specific conversation topics based on Jabber
 IM output.  "The integration with Jabber enables financial service companies
 to adhere to SEC/NASD regulations while enjoying the productivity increases
 from Instant Messaging.  We are delighted to deploy Genius Archive on Jabber's
 interoperable and scalable IM platform," states Rahul Ballal, CEO of Redmind
 ( www.redmind.com ).
     "Archiving is an essential feature for financial institutions due to SEC
 regulations," said Don Bergal, Jabber VP of Marketing.  "Because Jabber
 addresses this with true server-based data capture, rather than depending on
 clients to store their own data, our customers can be meet compliance
 requirements.  The Redmind application gives us a versatile tool for those
 customers who want an advanced message archiving solution."
     JCP Version 1.2 will be commercially available in February from Jabber,
 Inc.
