If all the well-publicized hacks over the past year or so have had any effect on the corporate world, it's been to make enterprises more worried than ever about security. Throw in the bring-your-own-device trend, and that concern gets compounded considerably.

Such issues were part of the motivation for the recent launch of the Confide app for confidential enterprise messaging, and they're also a big piece of the thinking behind the NetSfere messaging service that Infinite Convergence rolled out on Tuesday.

Though Infinite Convergence launched its cloud-based messaging service for enterprises on a trial basis last fall, the security-minded offering just became globally available. Device-to-device encryption and administrative controls are among the service's key features, which add up to end-to-end secure messaging capabilities, the company says.

"Security is a key differentiator between enterprise messaging services, especially given the increasing use of personal devices and consumer messaging apps in the workplace," said Pamela Clark-Dickson, a principal analyst with Ovum.

NetSfere's device-to-device encryption protects messages and documents from the time they leave the sending device until they arrive on the receiving one, Infinite Convergence says. The result is that only the sender and intended recipients can read the content.

An administrator control panel offers insight into how NetSfere is being used and tools for managing user access. IT managers can remotely wipe or restore all historical data from the application on employees' old, existing or new devices.

NetSfere is available as a native app for iOS and Android and via desktop and mobile web browsers. It's available for a free year-long trial for up to 10 users, with monthly per-user subscription pricing after that. Numerous industry-specific versions are available.
