The Most Important Features to Have for Secure Communication

  • To protect your intellectual property
  • To shield internal communication
  • To comply with governmental regulations

Secure Authentication and Authorization

If your organization is looking to implement password-protected communications through your website or collaboration apps, then you will have probably already come across the terms authentication and authorization. Although many people use the terms interchangeably, the reality is that they are very different.

  • Authorization: Once the user is authenticated, an authorization process will then determine the permissions granted. These permissions will govern what a user can see or do within the application, who they can communicate with, and what they can do when signed in.

End-to-End Encryption (E2EE)

Today, organizations share more internal data over public communications networks than ever before. This has led to a whole new set of complications and opportunities for data breaches, making end-to-end encryption (E2EE) essential for secure communications.

Compliance with New Data Regulations

More and more stringent laws, rules, and regulations regarding the transmission and storage of data are being enacted by governments around the world. A good example is the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that was implemented in May 2018 and which places far more obligation on enterprises to protect their internal and external data as well as secure communications.

As more corporate communication moves to the Internet, modern businesses have been left vulnerable to attacks and infiltration.
