Thanks to the proliferation of connected devices—the number of which is predicted to reach 4.3 per person by the year 2020—and the rise of cloud-based technology, power is shifting from the IT department into the hands of both employees and customers anytime a new technology is implemented within an organization.
While this has many consequences, both positive and negative, it’s not a trend CIOs can afford to ignore, as new technologies and applications are being brought to market at a breakneck pace. First and foremost, businesses need to be paying attention to security implications.
Understanding the pressures that the modern CIO faces, security was of paramount importance as we designed the Pypestream platform. It was absolutely critical that our offering encompassed user verification, encryption, a secure mobile platform and complied with the highest industry standards for cloud security to ensure our customers—and their customers—could rest assured when using our platform.
Implementing a new communication platform, like Pypestream, or any other new technology that can help you better connect with your customers should be an exciting time for your organization—don’t let subpar security measures hold you back.
