By Roy Mark

Microsoft (Quote, Chart) announced Wednesday ten new vendor partners who will support its corporate instant messaging (IM) platform. Known as Office Live Communications Server 2003, the Microsoft IM for business will feature voice, data and video support and is scheduled for an Oct. 21 debut.
The announcement came on the opening day of the Instant Messaging Planet Fall 2003 Conference & Expo in San Jose, Calif.
Among vendors supporting the platform are Waltham, Mass.-based Imlogic, a developer of enterprise infrastructure software, and FaceTime, a Foster City, Calif.-based provider of IM security, management and control solutions.
IMlogic IM Manager will allow Microsoft's corporate IM customers to log, archive, and report on enterprise usage of instant messaging in order to meet IM compliance requirements of the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and regulations such as HIPAA.
When combined with the MSN Messenger Connect for Enterprises service, IM Manager provides an integration point to the Microsoft messaging network, extending managed, secure and compliant instant messaging beyond the firewall. "

This story has more info than I thought. How many of us knew that there's a corporate version of Messenger?
