Device management and secure messaging solution has been selected by Community Hospice of Texas
SANTA MONICA, CALIF. May 16, 2013 -TigerText, the leader in secure, real-time messaging for health care and enterprise and AirWatch, the global leader and innovator in mobile device security and the largest Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) provider, today announced a partnership to offer a solution that allows health care organizations to secure their mobile platform and all text message and email communications. The solution has been chosen by Community Hospice of Texas, giving them the ability to securely send messages, images and files within the TigerTextPRO application, fully integrated with AirWatch’s EMM platform.
“Because mobile devices and texting are core to our daily workflow, Community Hospice of Texas realized it needed both an enterprise mobility management solution, which includes mobile device management, and also a HIPAA-compliant texting solution for all members of our team,” says David Swart, Director of IT at Community Hospice of Texas. “We were lucky to find two solutions that work together, AirWatch, to address our MDM needs, and TigerText, for our secure messaging needs. We have seamlessly deployed both solutions to all of our team members’ devices and are extremely pleased with the results – improved mobile functionality, security and utility in our day-to-day workflow.”
“Mobile messaging has become so ubiquitous both outside and inside the workplace, that the importance of communicating sensitive, private data in a secure, encrypted way across platforms and devices is greater than ever,” says Brad Brooks TigerText Co-Founder and President. “That’s why we’re excited to offer our secure text-messaging solution on AirWatch’s enterprise mobility management platform. Through our partnership, organizations like Community Hospice of Texas can continue to safely protect important company or health information to enhance communication and workflow across all their devices and platforms in a secure, HIPAA-compliant manner.”
“AirWatch is committed to providing the broadest device, application,and content management security possible,” says Brian Anderson, channel sales manager, AirWatch’s. “We’re thrilled that our partnership with TigerText allows us to extend our secure offering from the device to messaging, with TigerText’s secure, HIPAA-compliant message platform working seamlessly with our EMM platform, just as with Community Hospice of Texas and other joint customers.”
With the rise of BYOD in the workplace, unsecure SMS text messages have a greater risk of being exposed through lost devices or general data leakage outside the organization. TigerText solves this problem by offering a fully encrypted, SaaS platform for secure text messaging that is used in over 1000 healthcare facilities across the US and is delivering more than 1 million secure messages each day. Administrative controls provide additional security features such as pin lock, remote wipe, and a controlled message lifespan to safeguard corporate communications, which complement the security features offered by AirWatch with its EMM services. Images and large files can also be securely sent within the TigerText application.
