Secure Messaging Solution

Add Secure Messaging to Your Apps with TigerConnect

With the increase in popularity of BYOD policies, there has also been an increase in the need for organizations in highly regulated industries to implement a secure messaging solution to avoid potential data breaches and in order to comply with privacy and security standards.

Not all off-the-shelf solutions for secure messaging are entirely appropriate for an organization´s requirements. However, the alternative of investing significant resources to build a secure messaging solution from scratch is unviable in many circumstances.

Introducing TigerConnect Solutions for Secure Messaging

Now, TigerText – one of the leading providers of solutions for secure messaging – has released TigerConnect to allow software developers the opportunity of seamlessly integrating secure messaging capabilities into any application with minimal time and investment.

The TigerConnect “platform-as-a-service” provides a scalable infrastructure, from which software developers can leverage HTTP, SMTP and WCTP protocols to provide the widest range of connectivity. Building on the TigerConnect platform, organizations maintain control over the user interface and customer experience, while users can send secure text, voice and video messages with no risk of data leakage or compliance issues.

As with the secure messaging solution for iPhone iOS, the secure messaging solution for Android and Windows includes a quick start guide for downloading, installing and activating the SDK. There are then easy-to-follow steps for authenticating user IDs, sending secure messages and retrieving the most recent conversations.
