NetSfere, an End-to-End Secure Enterprise Messaging Service, Further Enhances Employee Communications
Now offering industry-leading device-to-device encryption, NetSfere ensures only the message sender and recipients can read sensitive messages and documents
CHICAGO -- February 24, 2015 -- To close major security loopholes that exist in current enterprise communication strategies, NetSfere is now available globally for enterprises to leverage the power of mobile messaging to enhance productivity, all while providing a simple and intuitive user experience.
The rise of consumer messaging applications has made enterprise communication security a top of mind concern for businesses. According to an Infinite Convergence study, 59 percent of IT decision-makers think third-party messaging apps and chat tools are insecure for enterprise communication. Further underlining this concern, Infinite Convergence's new 2015 study finds an astounding 87 percent of employees believe that third-party messaging apps do not keep their communication completely secure.
"Security is a key differentiator between enterprise messaging services, especially given the increasing use of personal devices and consumer messaging apps in the workplace," said Pamela Clark-Dickson, principal analyst, Consumer Services, Ovum. "Ensuring messaging security is becoming a high priority for enterprises, as they seek to safeguard the exchange of sensitive information between their employees, customers and partners."
Smartphone penetration and rapid adoption of consumer messaging applications has left enterprises inadequately prepared for the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) global phenomenon. As strongly evidenced in the company's studies, only less than half of employees say their employer has an official policy on mobile phone usage for business communication. Additionally, another study found that 2 out of 3 IT executives are concerned about employees' use of personal devices for business communication.
"Since its initial unveiling at CTIA last September, NetSfere has been trialed and used by customers on a global basis, and it has consistently received outstanding endorsements," said Anurag Lal, CEO of Infinite Convergence, the mobility solutions service provider that delivers NetSfere. "This is an overwhelming validation of the need for NetSfere in the enterprise messaging market -- we couldn't be happier with the quality of service NetSfere provides to our customers and the rave reviews and feedback they continue to provide."
Featuring robust service offerings, NetSfere provides industry leading security and message delivery capabilities, including:
- Global Cloud-based Service Availability: Cloud deployments located in the U.S., Europe and Asia provide customers with regional flexibility
- Device-To-Device Encryption: Leverages the strongest forms of encryption available to protect messages and documents from the time they leave the sending device until they arrive on the receiving device(s)

The company has also published a white paper titled, Secure Enterprise Messaging: The Evolution of Encryption" to further explain NetSfere's approach to secure messaging.
Offering a mobile app and web support via all modern browsers, NetSfere securely exchanges text messages, documents, photos and videos via a private, highly secure platform. NetSfere leverages two message encryption techniques for full device-to-device encryption, assuring only the sender and intended recipients can read the message. Additionally, NetSfere allows IT departments to remotely wipe or restore all historical data from the application on employees' old, existing or new devices.
