AOL INSTANT MESSENGER (AIM)
One of the earliest and most popular Instant Messaging applications, AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) once held over 50% market share in the IM space. While it doesn’t enjoy the same level of popularity today, AIM is still used by many end users in both the consumer and enterprise space.
Communications taking place over AIM can easily be archived when adding Merge1 to your existing infrastructure. As opposed to other archiving compliance solutions, which require sending your workforce’s critical, sensitive communications to a third party data store, Merge1 captures AIM communications and stores them in your existing email archive, whether on-prem (e.g. Veritas Enterprise Vault) or in the Cloud (e.g. Microsoft Office 365).

“Citrix worked closely with Globanet on the development of the ShareFile connector for Merge1, so that our joint customers could leverage the ShareFile platform for file sharing and collaboration while continuing to capture all user communications into the archive solution of their choosing. We chose to work with Globanet on this problem because we recognized Merge1 as the leading solution for capturing content and communications from multiple cloud platforms into any archive. We are committed to supporting customers who deploy Merge1 as a method for capturing and archiving communications that occur on the ShareFile platform.”
