Yahoo dumps Enterprise IM

Yahoo has canned sales of the enterprise version of its free instant-messaging client, officials said Friday.

The Sunnyvale, Calif., company will now turn its focus to its free Yahoo Messenger client for both business and consumer users, Yahoo Inc. spokeswoman Terrell Karlsten said.

To help enterprises monitor and manage employees’ use of Yahoo Messenger, Yahoo has partnered with enterprise IM management software vendor Akonix Inc., Karlsten said. Akonix’s software acts as proxy to monitor IM traffic and enforce corporate communication policies in real time.
