Secure Instant Messaging Solution

TigerConnect Adds Secure Instant Messaging Capabilities to Your App

With the widespread introduction of BYOD policies in the workplace, it is little wonder that organizations in highly regulated industries take great pains to select the most appropriate secure instant messaging solution.

Although BYOD policies have had a positive effect on the flow of communication, solutions for secure instant text messaging are needed to avoid damaging data breaches and to comply with industry standards for privacy and security.

There are many off-the-shelf solutions for secure instant text messaging, but not all are entirely appropriate for an organization´s needs. The alternative is to invest significant resources to build a secure instant messaging solution from scratch. Or is it?

Introducing TigerConnect Solutions for secure instant text messaging
