Tawk.com's secure peer-to-peer file transfer is perfect for accountants, lawyers and doctors who need to make important file transfers to their clients while maintaining privacy.
Miami Beach, Florida (PRWEB) January 29, 2014
ITExpo East at the Miami Beach Convention Center from January 28-31, 2014 and the Enterprise WebRTC Pavilion is a great place to see leading WebRTC technology in this rapidly emerging industry.
"Priologic is adding capabilities to Tawk.com in lockstep with the improvements in WebRTC capable browsers. A year ago only Chrome had WebRTC fully implemented, now Firefox and Opera are going strong. Next year Internet Explorer and Safari will likely support WebRTC, or someone will have provided a good workaround", according to Priologic CEO, Doug Pelton.
"Last year there where only a few companies working with WebRTC. This year there are over three hundred companies working on all sorts of WebRTC projects. There are probably a few thousand more that haven’t emerged from the garage yet," says Pelton.
“Tawk.com was originally built to demonstrate Priologic’s full-stack EasyRTC Open Source framework. It started winning awards for its frictionless user interface to a secure, anonymous video chat, without logging in, or downloading, just clicking on a link,” says Pelton.
Tawk.com v2 includes three new features that users have been asking for:
- Peer to peer secure text messaging with URL tagging. Sending text, phone numbers, URLs, postal addresses, and code fragments. Send a single character to 100KB per message.
- Peer to peer secure file sharing: Drag-and-drop files from your desktop to another person's video chat to start a transfer. The person gets to accept or reject. When the data channel is available, files travel peer to peer, and their size is unlimited. If a data channel isn’t available, the data is sent via WebSockets or TURN as a fallback, with a 10MB limit.
- Network statistics: Signal-strength bars at the bottom of a peer's video give a visual depiction of how much bandwidth is available. Hover over the signal-strength bars or click on them to get more detailed real-time statistics, including whether a TURN server is being used in for the audio or video chat. Available on Chrome only.
Tawk.com is secured via HTTPS, so the user only has to press the Accept button once to use the camera and microphone, until the next time the cache is cleared.
“In the next few months, we'll release iOS and Android versions of Tawk. They are working in the lab now, ready to submit to the app stores in the next few weeks,” says Pelton.
Unlike most WebRTC companies, whose free client side SDKs connect to their paid platform-as-a-service, EasyRTC provides all of the source code for the client and server and building block code for your apps for free, under a BSD2 open source license.
Priologic monetizes EasyRTC by licensing pre-built apps such as Tawk.com; building extensions that enhance EasyRTC, like native SDKs for iOS, Android and other platforms; and by providing world class support and development services.
