Group Chat – Security Tips to Follow

June 23, 2017   Instant Messaging

Many small businesses shrug off tools that provide extra internet security because of the cost and perceived implementation challenges.

Group chat security is of utmost importance, as many companies reach for this type of application to save both time and money. Here are a few reasons why you should embrace security, as opposed to overlooking its importance:

Monitoring Activity

Public group chats give you no way to see what your employees are doing with their chat. In fact, for all you know, employees are chatting with family and friends. Short of walking up behind them, you can’t really tell.

Brosix offers full featured tracking of conversations. Imagine how much productivity you can get back if you prompt (and monitor) your employees to only use the technology for professional communication.

Controlling Users

By controlling who your employees can communicate with, you can reduce wasted time and security threats.

In businesses with 5-50 employees, allowing access to the full network may not be a big deal. But if you have more than 50 employees, you may want to use Brosix’s membership features to limit who can talk with whom.

Anti-virus Protection

One of the most important points at which companies should be scanning files for viruses is when those files are transferred from one computer to another over the corporate network. This is often done via email, but more and more this is occurring via an team network.

Brosix scans all files when they are sent over the network. As a built in feature, no additional fees are required.

Final Thoughts

Group chat security is of vital importance to businesses of all sizes. The small cost of integrating Brosix is well worth it when you consider the productivity increase, greater level of control, and virus protection.
