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.

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.

Communication habits have changed significantly throughout the past decade, and internet communication has become a heavy and sometimes the dominating part of daily interactions.

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.

Encryption: lock the barn door before the horse is stolen

vipole encr

While security breaches are regularly making the news, the attention of users and companies is driven to encryption. Encryption protects access, data and interactions by transforming information to make it unreadable for third parties. But there is no such thing as universal encryption and there are multiple types of it used for online communication. The two core aspects about encryption are the spans of the network when the data is encrypted and the access to the keys. We’ll speak about them today.

The essential thing about using encryption for online conversations is to protect the data both when transmitted and when stored. Some services provide protection only while transferring the data, but the data on the servers is accessible for the company members.

VIPole has developed a different approach. End-to-end encryption in VIPole protects your data at all stages of transfer and storage. The files are stored encrypted both on the server and on the devices of VIPole users. We minimized the presence of the man in the system and there is no one in between who could monitor your activity.
