Akeni Instant Messaging Server: Pro Edition

The Pro Edition is ideally suited for businesses that need to host their own secured private IM system. Our secure messaging system offers enterprise messaging features such as encryption, authentification, and server side message logging for auditing purposes. It also have advanced administration tools for managing user accounts remotely.

The Pro edition can be used on a private network without connecting to the Internet. It can easily be setup for use inside and outside the company firewall, and also works across corporate VPN.

For organizations that needs to enforce stringent policies on the usage of instant messaging and enterprise manageability, please refer to our Expert Edition.

Features List

  • No Network Setup: The system uses IP multicasting so that the client can find the server automatically. This means that one can move the server to a different machine without having to reconfigure the clients.
  • Firewall Friendly: All communication, including file transfers, is done through the server, so it works every time, even across personal firewalls.
  • Encryption: All communication, including file transfer, is done through an 128-bit encrypted channel to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of the data.
  • Authentification: Access to the system are done using a zero-knowledge protocol that authentificates both the server and the client.
  • No Internet Connection Required: Unlike public IM systems, the program only requires a LAN (Local Area Network) to function. You can continue communicating with your co-worker even if your company's Internet connection is interrupted. Access to the system by external users is still possible through corporate VPN, or by configuring the server firewall to accept external connections.
  • Increased Productivity: By design, the system does not allow users to talk to people outside of the system. This will decrease the amount of time people spend talking to outsiders on non-work related issues using public IM systems.
  • Feature Rich: Real-time chat, private text conferencing sessions, online presence management, file transfer, emergency alerts/notifications, message logs, powerful rich-text editor, typing indicator.
  • Familiar User Interface: If you are familiar with public IM systems like AOL Instant Messenger or MSN Messenger, then you will be using our products like a pro in no time.
  • Contact List Query: Users can query for people to add to their contact list by searching for their real names.
  • Customization: Almost all aspect of the program can be changed and tailor to suit your work habits. For example, all the toolbars are fully customizable to maximize your productivity.
  • Customizable Exit Message: Create your own informative away and exit (offline) status messages.

Advanced Features

  • Message Auditing: All messages can be logged by the server for auditing purposes.
  • Message Logging: All activities are logged to HTML files so that they can be browsed later using your favorite browser.
  • Easy Account Creation: New users can be created and then added into everyone's buddy list automatically, thus allowing new users to access the system immediately.
  • Secured Defaults: Unlike public IM systems, our system is designed from the ground up with security in mind. There are no "unsafe" ways to run the program. Only people on the contact list can send/receive messages, thus eliminating all spams.
  • Auto Administration Mode: The Server can be run in auto administration mode where new users can register themselves, thus requiring little maintance once the server is up and running. This mode is off by default but can be turned on if the system is being run in a trusted environment inside the firewall.
  • Remote User Administration: The Server can be administered remotely via any running client by login into the admin account.
  • Tabbed Window: For users that have many simultaneous conversations and don't want dozens of chat windows open. Akeni provides an option to place all the chat and conference sessions into one tabbed window.
  • Simple Yet Powerful File Transfer: The simplest way to transfer files between two computers (even between Linux and Windows). Simply select the person you want to send the file to and choose "Send File". No need to setup FTP servers, figuring out ports, etc. The program supports the sending of arbitrary large files, resume of interrupted transfers, automatic transfer of multiple files, etc.
  • Extensive Drag & Drop Support: Most operations are available via drag and drop. Drag a file from your desktop and drop it on top of the recipient's name to start a file transfer. Drag the names of co-workers and drop them in a conference window to invite them to a conference, etc.
  • Cross Platform: Both the server and the client software are available for Microsoft Windows and Linux. All version of the software inter-operates seamlessly, making the Pro Edition a good solution for heterogeneous computer environments.
