It’s not uncommon for employees to share sensitive corporate information via popular messaging apps like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Skype for Business, and even Snapchat. It might seem harmless, but the privacy and security features on these messaging applications aren’t as strong as employees might think. Sure, some of these applications offer some sort of encryption but they still are able to access personal information (name, picture, messages) and authorize other applications to access that same information as well. In terms of data security however, this is problematic — it’s important that trade secrets, banking information, and client information remain absolutely secure from third-party messaging applications.

In searching for the right secure messaging application for your business, make sure that they include these three privacy features:Read more
Skype For Business Alternatives: Why Nuro, a Mobile First Messenger, Is The Best Choice For Cyber Security Messaging
Sure, Skype for Business is a great way to communicate with colleagues — it’s easy, simple, and cost effective. However, in terms of cyber security, Skype for Business is not the most viable solution on the market.

Thus, in deliberating which messaging platform to adopt, it’s important to truly understand the security weakness that come with the mainstream solutions, that is, Skype for Business, Jabber, and Sametime. Fortunately, there are messaging tools that offer the similar services as these solutions but with enhanced security — Nuro Secure Messaging is the best example.

After all, this is the only way these major companies can ensure that people will continue using their products. However, many collaboration and messaging tools such as Skype for Business were designed with desktop in mind rather than mobile, essentially limiting Skype’s ability to grab, onboard, and engage mobile users — not to mention that mobile user experience is not priority. Nuro, on the other hand, is a mobile first platform, meaning mobile is the main vision of the application. Nuro, which was developed by experts in mobile design and mobile security, has dedicated itself to improving and enhancing the mobile user experience, ultimately understanding that the majority of user communication is done from our pocket.Read more
