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.

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.
