Secure Messaging API
Introducing a Secure Messaging API from TigerText
TigerText is a leading provider of secure messaging solutions that enable compliant communications within highly regulated industries. TigerText is implemented in four of the top five largest for-profit health systems in the country and in a further 5,000 medical facilities to ensure the integrity of protected health information without obstructing the flow of communication.
Now TigerText has made its secure messaging API available to software developers in every industry through the release of TigerConnect – a simple, reliable and scalable SDK that allows developers to leverage HTTP, SMTP and WCTP protocols and existing demo projects to integrate secure messaging capabilities into any application.
With TigerConnect, developers can build on the “platform-as-a-service” to create their own secure messaging solution. Using the secure messaging API, developers can quickly and easily develop apps for end-users to send secure instant text, voice and video messages while organizations maintain full control over the integrity and movement of confidential data.
Protecting Confidential Data in Highly Regulated Industries
TigerConnect’s secure messaging API is the perfect tool with which to develop secure messaging solutions in highly regulated industries such as healthcare, legal services and financial services. Developers in other industries will also find benefits in TigerConnect´s secure messaging API to develop apps that protect confidential data at rest and in transit.
In the healthcare industry, the secure messaging API is the toolbox from which apps have been developed that enable the accelerated communication of confidential data in compliance with HIPAA. Apps have been created so that patient alerts, lab results, wound images and more can be sent from an EMR, or so that end-users can access legacy systems such as answering service software or nurse on-call systems without risk of a data breach.
In the legal services industry, developers can use the secure messaging API to develop secure communication channels between attorneys and clients – or between attorney and attorney. Secure communication channels in the legal services industry can be used for the sharing of evidence or confidential legal documents, photos and videos.
Developers working for organizations in the financial services industry can use TigerConnect´s secure messaging API to integrate SOX-compliant messaging capabilities into an existing trading app, or to build a custom-branded apps for banking clients to provide a value-added service. Secure messaging apps can be used to alert clients of suspicious activity on their accounts or to remind them of important financial events.
Research & Development
Organizations engaged in research and development can take advantage of TigerConnect´s secure messaging API to create apps that will enable the sharing of IP such as new markets or new product designs. Teams can collaborate confidentially with secure messaging apps, while conversations with manufacturers, suppliers or purchasers are guaranteed to remain private.
In the technology sector, the integrity of communications is essential. Using the secure messaging API, developers can create apps that will facilitate secure collaboration between colleagues concerning new products and features. Discussions with VCs about acquisitions and financing activities will also remain confidential.
Many organizations have a Human Resources department in which there is a need for privacy and confidentiality. HR personnel can take advantage of secure messaging apps to discuss salary negotiations confidentially or to alert candidates to new job opportunities. Employment contracts and other important documents can be attached to secure instant messages to ensure that their contents remain confidential.

The TigerConnect secure messaging API for iPhone iOS has a range of features that provide powerful compliance assets for larger organizations.
