Are Your Workers Using An Enterprise Secure Messaging Solution?

Enterprises secure their buildings with locks and fences.

They secure their networks with firewalls, and their data with passwords.

But what about those mobile devices?

Secure Mobile Messaging

That’s where we come in. Our award-winning Soprano GAMMA secure business messaging solution for business has just achieved the elite Common Criteria security certification, an internationally recognised security endorsement recognised by government entities in 25 countries worldwide.

This certification puts Soprano on a short list of companies globally who can offer a secure mobile messaging solution that has been evaluated independently by a leading global cybersecurity expert for high-level security standards, confirming that Soprano GAMMA can be a wise choice for the security-conscious business.

Sixty-seven percent of enterprise executives are ‘concerned’ about the risk of data loss caused by the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend, and finally we’re seeing that nearly half of all companies either currently ban or are considering banning these unencrypted third-party messaging apps.

The reason is obvious. BYOD devices contain sensitive corporate information, including intellectual property. When these devices are lost and lack encryption or password protection (as is likely) then businesses immediately have a data breach on their hands.

“Digital security threats and incidents have increased in recent years, leading to significant economic and social consequences for public and private organisations as well as individuals.

Some examples include disruption of operations (e.g. through denial of service or sabotage), direct financial loss, lawsuits, reputational damage, loss of competitiveness (e.g. in case of theft of trade secret), as well loss of customer trust.” (OECD)

These interruptions and losses won’t be cheap when they happen. According to the Ponemon Institute, the priciest data breach to resolve recently cost the company in question nearly $31 million. Even the least expensive data breach in the study still cost the company upwards of $750,000.

But why aren’t all companies banning unsecured messaging apps? The primary reasons are because of their rapid adoption within the workplace and their utility. Utility is the key data point, and it’s why we at Soprano believe that security should absolutely be the underlying force, applied proactively and aggressively, but we also believe it should be applied elegantly; it should be just as useful as those unsecured apps.

Soprano GAMMA is designed as first and foremost a secure enterprise mobile messaging app, but with a consumer-friendly user interface and productivity tools for improving business efficiency. Soprano GAMMA is a fun, engaging mobile messaging app that facilitates interactive tools and meaningful business communication.

In addition, Soprano GAMMA includes additional security features such as password protection, GAMMA adheres to encryption best practices to provide a more secure mobile business messaging solution than consumer-designed apps.

GAMMA is also centrally managed on a cloud platform, with a sophisticated hierarchical enterprise administration portal that enables permissions-based corporate use. GAMMA intelligently escalates to SMS when a user is offline, and allows team messaging with rich multimedia conversations wrapped in three layers of security.

GAMMA can be used to unlock almost limitless possibilities for workflow automation and business process improvement through its unique “workflow messaging” capability that enables messages with forms, buttons, and menus to enable system automation and replace error-prone typing.
