SANTA MONICA, CA (April 25, 2013) – TigerText, the leader in secure real-time messaging for health care and enterprise, today announced an API integration with Box that allows its customers to use the TigerText secure messaging platform to send and receive files stored on Box’s cloud content sharing and collaboration platform. TigerText users can now securely access information hosted on Box from their mobile devices or computers, making it easier than ever to send files of all sizes in real-time and stay HIPAA compliant. TigerText is already used in over 1,000 health care facilities across the US, including leading institutions like Adventist Health, Scottsdale Health Partners, and the University of Kentucky and delivers more than one million secure messages each day.
“CIOs everywhere are seeing employees transfer important and sensitive information to mobile devices, along with the growing trend of bringing your own device (BYOD) to work. In addition, the need to not eat up precious bandwidth and storage with large files has led all types of organizations to the cloud,” said Brad Brooks, president, and co-founder, TigerText. “Integrating with Box is an exciting step as it lets us extend the valuable benefits of secure mobile messaging to customers who are utilizing the cloud, with peace of mind that their sensitive information is safe regardless of where they access it from. Whether they are coordinating among caregivers, collaborating on research or consulting with patients Tiger Text secures their communications in a compliant and user-friendly manner.”
With TigerText and Box, users can:
• Send files to any PC, Mac or mobile device
• Bring enterprise-class cloud storage into secure texting workflows
• Set time limits on a recipient’s ability to access files
• Recall sent texts to prevent further access
