Ovum Survey Finds NetSfere Among The Top 3 Most Widely Deployed Secure Enterprise Messaging Services


NetSfere is the third most used enterprise platform, clearly outpacing legacy enterprise communication vendors


CHICAGO, Feb. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A report by Ovum, a market-leading research and consulting firm, commissioned by Infinite Convergence Solutions, a global leader in messaging and mobility solutions, finds that within just a few short years of launching, NetSfere is ranked as the third most used enterprise messaging service behind Skype Business and Cisco's Spark.

In addition to the need for a secure messaging service, the report shows enterprise demand for communication services that enable collaboration beyond messaging. NetSfere's combined HD voice, video and text capabilities - all preferred means of communication in one encrypted platform - validates its ranking among the top services for enterprises.

"With messaging services advancing into all-in-one communications platforms, there's a greater propensity for widespread business use - but also major security risks," said Anurag Lal, CEO and President of Infinite Convergence Solutions, creators of NetSfere. "NetSfere is widely successful because it brings together the ultimate combination of collaboration, productivity, security and compliance that is unmatched when compared to third-party consumer messaging services. We're extremely proud that NetSfere is among the top three enterprise messaging platforms, a clear indication that the well-established legacy platforms have been outpaced by enterprises' communication needs in the mobile era."

Ovum's report, "Secure Enterprise Messaging in the Age of the Chat App," proves a quick-growing need for reliable and secure enterprise messaging services. While most respondents use chat apps for one-to-one messaging for daily work tasks, about 60 percent also use it for group messaging, including one-to-one voice and video communications, and nearly 75 percent of respondents share confidential and non-confidential documents.

"Enterprises have a strict responsibility to ensure employees' communication is secure and confidential, especially those working in industries where communication records are required to be stored for auditing," said Pamela Clark-Dickson, Practice Leader of Ovum. "But our research shows that enterprises are allowing the use of consumer messaging apps that don't provide those vital security features."

The report finds that 65 percent of respondents are concerned about chat apps representing security loopholes and 50 percent are concerned about their inability to monitor communication. Despite enterprises' concerns over consumer messaging services, organizations have still allowed their usage. Sixty-seven percent of respondents allow employees to use consumer mobile messaging apps because they believe it is impossible to effectively block their usage.

In order to meet employees' demands for a simple-to-use, familiar messaging service, NetSfere delivers a similar look and functionality to mirror the popular consumer app experience, but adds the security and compliance features necessary for the workplace, including global cloud-based service availability, device-to-device encryption, location-based features and administrative controls. Built to meet a variety of industry-specific needs, NetSfere also offers regulatory compliances, such as SOX and HIPAA.

Cloudflare Announces Mobile SDK to Monitor Network Performance for Applications22.3.2018 14:00Pressmeddelande

New free solution delivers network analytics to any mobile app developer SAN FRANCISCO, March 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cloudflare, the leading Internet performance and security company, today announced the Cloudflare Mobile SDK, a free solution that enables any mobile app developer to understand network performance and metrics. Consumers are frustrated by mobile apps that are slow, crash, or deliver errors that degrade the user experience. For mobile app developers, a bad user experience means poor reviews, lower engagement, and reduced conversion on business metrics. Delivering consistent app performance requires focusing on every link in the chain: app code, network calls between the app and edge networks, and server infrastructure. There are a number of solutions that give developers analytics on their applications, but there has never been a way for app developers to understand how often their apps fail due to network errors. App developers easily integrate the Cloudflare Mobil
