The Future of Instant Messaging


A bit of statistics

The overall traffic in messaging apps is expected to more than triple by 2019 since 2014 – from almost 31 trillion to 100 trillion globally, according to Juniper Research. Messengers are the technology that facilitates both entertaining activities and business collaboration. Over the top communication is quick, easy and cheap and it will connect people in so many new ways during the upcoming years. Today we will speak about the features that enrich messengers in order to give you more than just an opportunity to send a «Hello, where are you?» message.

Why it’s good for people

The start of 2016 has proved that the global audience has shifted to messengers. According to the Business Insider report, the combined user base of the top four chat apps is larger than the combined user base of the top four social networks. This popularity is predictable: it’s cheaper than traditional telecommunications, it has more features than e-mail and it’s more private than social media. On top of that, the cost of plain smartphones has become relatively low, and the interface of messengers is easy even for your grandmother.

An average smartphone user has ~36 apps installed with 68% of them in the field of social & communication. The services that are the most popular in different countries vary, however most users use several messengers to connect with family, friends and co-workers. Continue reading

VIPole enterprise solutions as a Skype for Business alternative: a comparative look

blog vipole vs skype

Why your business needs a messenger

With the major part of daily human interactions occurring in messengers, business issues are discussed there along with personal affairs. When different friends and colleagues prefer different chat apps, all conversations are distributed across several more or less secure services. This is when confidential corporate data is vulnerable. Corporate emails and traditional telecommunications are no longer efficient enough, and everyone is online in messengers day and night. Smart online collaboration between coworkers has become a necessity in today’s business environment. Permanent involvement in discussions and decision-making is integral for success.

To satisfy the demand for permanent connection and avoid leakages, companies aim to unite communications in a single system. The corporate messaging trend is quite hot now and constantly transforming as new services provide new opportunities. When a team needs chats, collaboration tools and video conferencing, the first service that comes to mind is Skype with its cloud and server solutions. This is the field where we are together, as VIPole also unites teams and brands on cloud and server platforms. When it comes to functionality, we really have a lot in common, but our approach to privacy and security differs fundamentally. In this post, we speak about the functionality, safety and cost of VIPole enterprise solutions and Skype for business and make recommendations on reducing the risks that business data faces daily.

VIPole for teamwork: techniques and tricks

vipole for teamwork

Imagine a large estate that welcomes dozens of guests. The building has many rooms, some are hidden and only the owner knows how to get there and how to open the door. In one room folks play bridge, the other room is a dancing hall, the third room is for political and philosophical debates, a small room gives privacy for the conversation of the two. This is a natural way of human communication. When you choose one of VIPole solutions for business, you become an owner of a virtual estate, and you create rooms and invite people. Confidential conversations never leave the borders of the estate.

The connected world has given us all the opportunities that we could never imagine before, but as we can be more effective now, we have to show the best of what we can do every day. Communication habits have changed significantly throughout the past decade, and internet communication has become a heavy and sometimes the dominating part of daily interactions. Chats, blogs, social media, messengers – it’s now common to participate in a group chat, that connects the parents of the classmates, in a group chat of your foreign language course or of your local volleyball team. The workplace communications tend to be more conservative, depending on the field. Tech companies and news organizations are among the pioneers who are the first to discover the convenience of messengers for business.

Group account or Corporate Server: what to choose for the team?

group account vs server what to choose

Hundreds of millions of people all over the planet use messengers daily. We are all used to the convenience of conversations when any acquaintance is at the fingertips and any kind of data, be it a document or just a landscape photo, can be shared immediately, even if the data recipient is in thousands of kilometers away. As messengers became a widespread technology, enterprises got an advantage from them when they needed to coordinate a small group of people and exchange data. Still the opportunity to exchange texts and pictures is unable to cover all the communication needs of companies. Maintaining a project often requires tools that are provided by several independent services.

There is one more concern – security. Employees use personal devices to access enterprise data. When conversations go beyond the boundaries of corporate data exchange – the company no longer controls the routes of the data. This risk is considered inevitable, as employees should be always connected to stay effective. When we speak about data security, compromises won’t make business safer. Encrypted communication with additional tools for data exchange and storage may be a solution. VIPole allows to control the data on all connected devices at all stages of storage and transmission. In this post, we will showcase the opportunities of VIPole solutions for teams and enterprises that can become a part of your daily private and business interactions.

VIPole group chats, conferences and task management enable businesses to achieve more and protect sensitive data from intruders. With target-oriented interconnection both within the company and with the vendors and business partners all the communications of the company can be categorized into different flows. Exchange messages and files, make audio and video calls, arrange conferences and hold meetings, send large files in the middle of the conversation or call and get notifications when the file transfer is complete – it is all in one app.

Data security for business: combating the threats

How to protect the data from breaches

The negligence of the companies may cause leaks when the business owners prefer to save money on anti-virus software and leave the employees without clear instructions on security policy. In the meantime, external threats can be sometimes too sophisticated for countering. Therefore, companies should anticipate disaster response. We gave an overview of the most common data breaches in business in our previous post. Now it’s time to speak about combating them. The methods of data breach prevention will be in our focus today.

Business owners are interested in the best control of their data. The risk of breaches is especially high when the company has to protect not only its own affairs, but also the customer databases. Apart from hacking poorly protected systems, frauds may perform malware and social engineering attacks.

To secure themselves, the most responsible companies hire high-qualified IT professionals, build a solid security infrastructure and train employees. Nonetheless protecting the perimeter is not a guarantee that the sensible data is unreachable for violations elsewhere. The data should stay secure during all operations including transmitting, editing and storing. If you are not an IT specialist, not all the cases when data is vulnerable are evident. However, when you know the threats – you can diminish the risks. The Online Trust Alliance (OTA) reported that more than 90 % of data breaches that occurred in the first half of 2014 could have easily been prevented.

Data leaks: the threat does not always come from where you expected


Data protection is necessary for the reputation of every brand, and it is particularly topical for the companies that store private data of their customers. E.g., access to the mobile phone number may mean access to e-money. Data breaches in companies result in the shift of the customers to the uncompromised rivals. Losing data may lead to losing reputation, customers, partners, and in the worst cases the whole business. Make your company trustworthy by protecting it from data leaks. Today we will look upon the factors that put safety of businesses in jeopardy.

In this article, we won’t give you a manual on operating a shredder to destroy your white papers or speak about eavesdropping devices and similar old-fashioned methods. Cyber threats are our subject.

The costs of data breaches are increasing every year although data protection systems are constantly becoming more and more sophisticated. Even the best security software won’t protect you, if you fail to protect yourself. Leaving the laptop unlocked or writing down the password and keeping in on a sticker at a workplace – some people just don’t care until their accounts are captured and the data is stolen. Everyone is responsible for the security of his or her private data, while at work every employee is responsible for the security of the whole business. This is what we are going to speak about today – how to protect your data and what may threaten it.

You may invest in the best security protection technologies including firewalls and antivirus software, but your own employees are the vulnerable spot, especially if they are unaware about the threats. They may share the sensitive data on purpose or by accident or even exploit it.

Edward Snowden may have persuaded between 20 and 25 fellow workers at the NSA regional operations center in Hawaii to give him their logins and passwords by telling them they were needed for him to do his job as a computer systems administrator – Reuters reported.

There are both external and internal causes for data leaks, and they are closely interconnected. The social engineer attack is external, but if your employee has no idea about such attacks and how to deal with them – it is your fault. Mismanagement of business processes involving data exchange, storage and access may bring risks.
