Secure Texting SDK

Add Secure Text Messaging Capabilities to Your App

With data breaches being a major concern for many industries, it is no wonder that organizations operating BYOD policies are looking for ways to protect confidential information and comply with industry standards for security and privacy without obstructing the flow of communication.

An off-the-shelf solution often times doesn’t meet an organization’s demands, or can involve a long evaluation process which proves to be fruitless. Alternatively organizations have the option of building, testing and maintaining a custom, message framework, but this requires a significant investment of time and money.

Now TigerText – one of the world´s leading providers of secure text messaging solutions – has released its own secure texting SDK – TigerConnect. With the TigerConnect secure texting SDK, software developers no longer need to invest significant resources to build a secure text messaging solution from scratch, as the platform allows secure text messaging capabilities to be integrated into any application.

Introducing the TigerConnect Secure Texting SDK

TigerConnect is a simple, reliable and scalable “platform-as-a-service” that enables software developers to leverage the secure texting SDK and demo projects to save on development time – meaning that organizations no longer need to invest resources evaluating off-the-shelf solutions or creating a bespoke solution to meet their individual requirements.

Building on the TigerConnect platform, organizations and software developers can maintain full control over the integrity of confidential information without obstructing the flow of communication. Authorized users can send secure text, voice and video messages – or share files with colleagues – via secure text messaging apps, with no risk of data leakage or compliance issues.

The Advantages of Secure Text Messaging in Multiple Industries

In highly regulated industries, the advantages of secure text messaging are clearly evident. In the healthcare industry, for example, secure text messaging enables healthcare organizations to remain compliant with HIPAA privacy and security regulations without obstructing the flow of communication. Additionally, due to an 80 percent reduction in phone tag and emails, secure text messaging gives healthcare professionals more time to attend to patients.

Due to the time and money saved with TigerText´s secure text messaging solution, the company services four of the top five largest for-profit health systems in the country. TigerText is used to communicate in compliance with HIPAA in more than 5,000 other medical facilities, and each month TigerText´s servers process more than 150 million secure text messages.

Secure text messaging can be equally as advantageous in other highly regulated industries, or within any department of an organization where confidentiality and security are necessary:

Financial Services

  • In the financial services industry, existing trading apps can have SOX-compliant secure text messaging capabilities added to them
  • Custom-branded, secure text messaging apps can be created to provide a private communication channel between financial institutions and clients
  • Secure text messaging apps can also be developed to provide value-added services to clients – such alerts of suspicious activity on their accounts or reminders of important financial events

  • In the legal services industry, secure text messaging apps can be developed to share legal documentation, evidence, photos and videos in compliance with CJIS regulations
  • The TigerConnect secure texting SDK can also be used to create private communication channels between attorneys and their clients
