Symphony Offers Deepest Team Collaboration Security to Combat Data Leakage and Fraud

The More Secure Alternative to Slack and Microsoft Teams Is Trusted by 350 Companies

NEW YORK, 3 Oct, 2018 – Symphony Communication Services, LLC, the leading secure team collaboration platform for critical business operations, combats data leakage and fraud with the addition of native Data Loss Prevention (DLP). Over 350 firms use Symphony for internal and external business transactions as a result of its unique security architecture.

Symphony’s secure, end-to-end encrypted platform now includes native integrated DLP, providing real-time scanning of file attachments and metadata. Customers define and manage policies with powerful administration tools and APIs. This augments the already rich administrative, security and compliance capabilities for enterprises using Symphony, and allows entire organizations to collaborate with confidence and trust their counter parties as they communicate. Symphony’s architecture also secures robust workflows, bots and automations and enables secure team collaboration both internally and externally.

“The push for digital innovation is shifting infrastructure to the cloud…but this introduces stress and risk,” says David Gurle, founder and CEO of Symphony. “In the rush to adapt to new technology, needless security compromises are being made. With over a billion records hacked in the past 12 months alone, most companies underestimate how vulnerable their data in the cloud truly is. Popular cloud-based collaboration solutions – which tout their end-to-end encryption – actually decrypt data in the cloud. Symphony’s unique security architecture, which makes it impossible for customer data to be decrypted by Symphony, ensures vital data is kept safe at all times.”

“With ever-increasing cyber threats, enterprises can’t afford collaboration platforms that bolt-on security as an afterthought. Symphony’s end-to-end encryption model, now combined with native DLP for messages, metadata, and files, offers a compelling alternative to Slack and other team collaboration platforms,” says Zeus Kerravala, founder and principal analyst with ZK Research.
