Secure Texting Solution

Add Secure Texting to Apps with TigerConnect

With potential data breaches a constant source of concern for industries that promote BYOD policies, it is no wonder organizations are looking for a secure texting solution in order to protect confidential information and to comply with privacy and security regulations.

Not all off-the-shelf solutions are appropriate for an organization´s needs; but the alternative of building a solution for secure texting from scratch, testing it and maintaining it on a custom, messaging framework requires a significant investment of time and money. Or at least it did until now.

Introducing TigerConnect – The Solution for Secure Texting

TigerConnect is a simple and reliable SDK from TigerText – a leading provider of secure real-time messaging solutions. The TigerConnect “platform-as-a-service” offers a scalable infrastructure, with step-by-step documentation and cross-platform APIs and SDKs. To provide the widest range of connectivity, developers can leverage HTTP, SMTP and WCTP protocols.

The TigerConnect SDK and demo projects reduce the development time of a solution for secure texting. Building on the TigerConnect platform, organizations can maintain full control over the user interface and customer experience, while enabling users to send secure text, voice and video messages – and also share files across different applications – with no risk of data leakage or security issues.

A Secure Texting Solution for iPhone iOS

TigerConnect´s secure texting solution for iPhone iOS includes an API to support app extension, a message attachment preview function, and a group message status tracking function. No other solution for secure texting provides this level of tracking for group conversations, and this function is becoming one of the most powerful assets for users of the platform.

The secure texting solution for iPhone iOS includes the tools, the documentation, and the code libraries required to remotely create and delete user accounts from a mobile device, to manage user accounts and to retrieve conversations. These are vital utilities for system administrators charged with monitoring activity across the platform to ensure compliance with industry security and privacy regulations.

A Secure Texting Solution for Android

TigerConnect´s secure texting solution for Android enables software developers to build message security into any Android app. Once integrated, the TigerConnect platform manages the connection to the app, keeping the app synchronized with the backend infrastructure, and ensuring end-to-end security of communications.

As with the secure texting solution for iPhone iOS, the secure texting solution for Android comes with a quick start guide that explains how to download, install and activate the SDK, and then how to authenticate user IDs, send secure messages and retrieve the most recent conversations. Existing demo apps accelerate the process of developing a secure texting solution for Android and for iPhone iOS.

How Multiple Industries Can Benefit from a Solution for Secure Texting

TigerText has been a leading provider of secure real-time messaging solutions in the healthcare industry for a number of years. Using the same TigerConnect SDK, TigerText has provided a solution for secure texting to four of the top five largest for-profit health systems in the country. TigerText´s secure texting solution ensures the integrity of communications in more than 5,000 medical facilities, and in excess of 150 million HIPAA-compliant text messages are processed by TigerText´s secure servers every month.

Beyond the healthcare industry, TigerConnect is an appropriate solution for secure texting in other highly regulated industries in which the integrity of communications is critical.
