Streaming E-Communications Platform Facilitates Transitory Messaging
CHICAGO, Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Vaporstream, the exclusive provider of Streamed E-Communications for business, is pleased to introduce VaporIGM, a Vaporstream Information Governance Module, with features designed to more effectively and compliantly meet the transitory and confidential messaging needs of businesses large and small. The announcement was made by Vaporstream President Mike Koclanes.
"Vaporstream is rapidly being adopted as a new e-communications standard among professional firms, small and mid-sized business, and enterprises. Thanks to Vaporstream's revolutionary Streamed E-Communications Platform, businesses have instant exchanges that are controlled (cannot be forwarded, copied, or otherwise redistributed), transient (are not stored), and secure (cannot be intercepted by anyone, anywhere). Vaporstream is a powerful addition to the e-communications mix," said Koclanes.
Vaporstream's patented Streamed E-Communications Platform is based on a unique RAM-
to-RAM transmission technology that streams information, leaving no data or metadata on servers or devices. Traditional e-communications travel from device hard-drive to device hard-drive, crossing multiple servers and leaving data stored along the way, which increases information vulnerability. Even when deleted from devices, data remains in storage, which can cost businesses in multiple ways. To further reduce any risk of data exposure, Vaporstream messages also are encrypted at the maximum level, and sender/receiver metadata is separated from message data during transmission.
Legal Compliance & E-Discovery
Vaporstream complies with legal and e-discovery obligations, according to retired Federal Judge Ronald Hedges, author of Managing Discovery of Electronic Information. "Vaporstream does not create written business records, or electronically stored information (ESI). Because users are not legally obligated to preserve something that does not exist, you can confidently use Vaporstream for transitory and sensitive messaging without fear of violating courts' e-discovery guidelines or regulators' record retention rules. Using Vaporstream is no different from talking face-to-face at the water cooler," said Hedges.
Vaporstream now has developed next-generation features and options to better serve the evolving e-communications needs of business. Its newest product is VaporIGM.
VaporIGM: While there is no legal requirement for the retention of transitory messages, Vaporstream recognizes that some organizations may-in accordance with their own internal audit policy, security rules, or legal hold policy-elect to retain transitory messages for a short, defined period of time. To meet these optional retention needs, Vaporstream has developed new information governance modules, VaporIGM.
VaporIGM allows customers to place one copy of any transitory message sent into its system of record, and nowhere else. Transitory Vaporstream messages are automatically integrated into the organization's enterprise information governance program and categorized for retention and disposition-in compliance with legal, regulatory, and organizational guidelines. VaporIGM integrates with standard archival, content management, litigation hold, and records management systems. Any application that can archive email from Exchange/Outlook can be integrated with VaporIGM.
These confidential messages still cannot be stored, copied, or forwarded outside Vaporstream's customer's controlled archive. This provides effective control over information leaks through uncontrolled text messaging and email and text propagation.
Sample Vaporstream Messages
Vaporstream may be used for any transitory conversation that does not require long-term retention. Examples:
CFO to CEO: Attached are projected staff salaries for next year. Your thoughts?
CEO to HR: Offer him an extra $25K, but do not let anyone else know.
Sales VP to Sales Manager: Great business plan; wrong team. We need to make a few staff
IT to New Hire: Your account passcode is xyz123.
Exec to Administrative Assistant: My AmEx #123456789. Expiration 01/18. Security #5555.
CEO to CFO and IR: The threshold is $2.5 million, but they may accept a bonus incentive.
New Hire to HR: My SSN is 123-45-6789; my birthdate is 12/13/74; my address is 9876 Happy Street.
