Verizon IM: Good For Your Business?

Verizon Business announced today the availability of its Hosted Secure Instant Messaging, a pair of secure IM services based on Microsoft's Live Communications Server (LCS) software and Symantec's IM Manager. The services have the price point and capabilities to be both an IT dream and nightmare, depending on one's perspective.
