Let's face it: the workplace is becoming more and more dependent on mobile technology. In fact, many small and large businesses have welcomed bring your own device (BYOD) environments in an effort to empower employees with the flexibility of choosing their own mobile devices to best get their work done.
While the move toward a mobile-first environment offers a number of benefits to businesses, it also presents some unique challenges. By allowing employees to choose their own devices, organizations can experience disjointed communication issues as a result of the incompatibility between iOS and Android operating systems.
For example, iPhone users have the advantage of using iMessage, known to many for its ease-of-use and quick, simple interface. Unfortunately, this capability is unavailable to Android users and presents a cross-platform dilemma. The result of this miscommunication was a flock toward the use of consumer group messaging apps like WhatsApp or GroupMe. These seemingly convenient apps, however, inherently lack basic security features and place businesses at risk of exposing valuable company information.
While it's obvious to see that BYOD messaging is the future of communication, companies must ensure that they incorporate a program which ensures secure BYOD messaging, across all devices and platforms. Lua helps to bridge the gap between devices by streamlining communication. The app is available on both iPhone and Android, as well as a web platform, with encryptions at transit and at rest. For efficient, high-performance organizations, Lua is truly the secure BYOD enterprise messaging solution.
