SDK for Secure SMS Messaging

Add Secure SMS Messaging To Any App

With unsecure SMS messaging being a frequent cause of data breaches in highly regulated industries that implement BYOD policies, organizations are constantly on the lookout for systems that ensure the integrity of confidential information in the workplace.

Secure messaging solutions can resolve many of the issues associated with SMS communications, but the resources required to build, test and maintain a custom messaging framework can be substantial. The alternative of off-the-shelf solutions may not meet an organization´s requirements.

Now TigerText – one of the world´s leading providers of secure messaging solutions – has released its own secure messaging SDK, TigerConnect. Organizations no longer need to invest substantial resources to build a secure messaging solution from scratch, as developers can now add secure SMS messaging to any app.

Introducing the TigerConnect SDK for Secure SMS Messaging

The TigerConnect SDK for secure SMS messaging from TigerText – one of the world´s leading providers of secure messaging solutions – is a simple, reliable and scalable platform that enables software developers to build and integrate a secure SMS messaging solution into any application.

In addition to the API, developers can leverage the SDK for secure SMS messaging and existing demo projects to save on development time. This means that organizations with unique demands – and developers who have to satisfy those demands – no longer need to invest so much money and time to create their own secure messaging solution from scratch.

Building on the established TigerText platform, organizations and developers can maintain full control over the user interface and endpoint experience, so that users are able to send text, voice and video messages – or to share files, images and documents – with no risk of a breach of data or a security issue.

The Advantages of Secure SMS Messaging in Highly Regulated Industries

The advantages of secure SMS messaging are clearly evident in highly regulated industries. The ability to send secure SMS in the healthcare industry, for example, has resulted in a reduction in phone tag and emails of up to 80 percent. This allows medical professionals to spend more time with their patients – who receive a higher standard of care – while the healthcare organization benefits from increased productivity and remains compliant with industry security and privacy requirements.

Outside of the healthcare industry, TigerConnect´s SDK for secure SMS messaging is a valuable tool which can be used to create appropriate solutions for other highly regulated industries. Secure communications are critical in the financial services, the legal profession, government agencies, and technology and R&D companies to accelerate workflows, enhance productivity and maintain confidentiality.
