This week has seen the TigerText secure messaging platform receive another accolade, having been certified as an “Enterprise-Ready” under the SkyHigh CloudTrust Program.
The SkyHigh CloudTrust Program was developed by SkyHigh in conjunction with the Cloud Security Alliance. The program assesses cloud services and determines the product and company’s enterprise-readiness status. In order for a service or platform to be awarded Enterprise-Ready status, it must first meet a number of stringent security standards.
Organizations offering cloud-based services must ensure their platforms and services are secure, and they must therefore include numerous protections to keep transmitted and stored data 100% private and confidential at all times. While many organizations claim to offer secure products, it can be difficult for consumers to determine just how secure a particular service or product actually is.
The SkyHigh CloudTrust Program award is invaluable in this regard, effectively giving a particular cloud service a stamp of approval for data security, showing consumers that the service includes all of the necessary protections to ensure that confidential data remains private.
The program is neatly summed up by SkyHigh Network’s CEO, Rajiv Gupta, “The SkyHigh CloudTrust Rating streamlines the evaluation process by providing an objective and comprehensive evaluation of a service’s security controls and enterprise readiness and merits solutions based on their strict security protocols and commitment to data protection.”
When evaluating a cloud service, SkyHigh conducts a detailed investigation and analysis, including legal, business, service, user, device and data attributes. A cloud service must include the minimum necessary standards for data protection, identity verification, and service security in order before it is classed as enterprise ready. The service must also include the required business practices and legal protections.
The TigerText secure messaging platform passed the test, exceeding the minimum data security standards set by SkyHigh. According to TigerText’s Vice President of Product, Johnathan Podemsky, “We take the security of our customers’ mobile communications very seriously. This rating provides an additional level of assurance to our customers, demonstrating our commitment to providing a secure and reliable enterprise communication solution.”
In the words of Gupta, “Selecting an enterprise-ready service such as TigerText is critical for securing and safeguarding enterprise communications.”
