Secure Text Messaging Solution
Add Secure Texting Capabilities to Your App with TigerConnect
As the implementation of BYOD policies becomes more widespread, it is essential that organizations in highly regulated industries acquire a secure text message solution in order to maintain confidentiality, avoid data breaches, and to comply with industry regulations for security and privacy.
There are many vendors of messaging systems who can offer a choice of off-the-shelf products; but not all of these potential solutions will be appropriate for an organization´s needs. To establish which the most suitable secure text messaging solution is can be a time-consuming and laborious task – not necessarily with a positive outcome at the end of it.
The alternative is for organizations to develop their own secure text messaging solution from scratch. Although this will resolve the issue of finding an appropriate solution, it is also resource intensive. Building, testing and maintaining a custom, message framework requires a significant investment of time and money. Now there is a third option – TigerConnect.
A Brief Introduction to TigerConnect
TigerConnect is a simple, reliable and scalable “platform-as-a-service” that enables software developers to build and integrate a secure text messaging solution into any application – leveraging HTTP, SMTP and WCTP protocols to provide the widest range of connectivity
Software developers can take advantage of the TigerConnect SDK, API and demo projects to save on development time – meaning that organizations no longer have to dedicate a significant investment of time and money to create a solution to meet their unique demands.
Building on the platform, organizations and software developers can maintain full control over the integrity of confidential data without hindering the flow of communication, while users can send secure text, voice and video messages – or share files with colleagues – with no risk of data leakage or compliance issues.
A Secure Text Messaging Solution for Android
TigerConnect comes ready-to-use with a quick start guide for downloading, installing and activating the SDK. Also included are all the tools, documentation, and code libraries software developers need to build a secure text messaging solution for Android that will allow the remote creation and deletion of user accounts, the management of user accounts, and the retrieval of conversations.
Once integrated, the TigerConnect platform manages the connection to secure texting apps, keeps the apps synchronized with the backend infrastructure, and ensures end-to-end security of communications. We believe that experienced software developers be able to send a secure text message via TigerConnect in less than five minutes.
A Secure Text Messaging Solution for iPhone iOS and Windows Devices
As with the solution for Android, the TigerConnect SDK is easy to download, install and activate when software developers want to create a secure text messaging solution for iPhone iOS and Windows devices. Further easy-to-follow steps exist for authenticating user IDs, sending secure text messages and retrieving the most recent conversations.
TigerConnect includes app extension support, a message attachment preview function, and group message status tracking. No other secure text messaging solution provides this scale of group message tracking, and this feature is a powerful asset for larger organizations looking for a secure text messaging solution for iPhone iOS, Windows and Android.
How Secure Texting Apps Benefit Organizations
The TigerConnect SDK is the same as is used in TigerText – one of the largest providers of secure texting apps in the world. Four of the top five largest for-profit health systems use TigerText secure texting apps to send HIPAA-compliant messages, and more than 5,000 other medical facilities use TigerText as a secure text messaging solution.
TigerText´s secure texting apps have accelerated the flow of communications in the healthcare industry, have been responsible for streamlining workflows and increasing productivity – resulting in substantial savings for healthcare organizations and a higher standard of healthcare for patients.
