Clients downloading the latest DeskAlerts version now enjoy steadfast security thanks to the integration of multiple new patches into the October version. Now, everyone from hospitals and healthcare centers to legal firms and logistics companies can keep employees in the loop with the total reassurance that all communication is 100% secure.

This year, IBM released an alarming report that revealed the average consolidated total cost of a data breach is around US$3.8 million. This represents a 23% rise on 2013’s figures. Furthermore, the incurred cost for every lost or stolen record containing sensitive and confidential information now sits at US$154 per document. Security is clearly a colossal expense which means companies must protect themselves at all costs. DeskAlerts is helping its clients to do just this with innovative internal communications strategies backed by continuously reviewed security measures.

“We appreciate that when it comes to arming businesses with a competitive edge, knowledge is an indispensable asset that must be protected at all costs. That’s why we’ve had our engineers working around the clock to develop a series of security patches that make the latest October version of DeskAlerts impermeable,” says Anton Vdovin, DeskAlerts Director.

Armed with the results of an independent security review, the DeskAlerts security team pinpointed several areas where the software didn’t offer clients watertight protection against hackers. While the vulnerabilities were all relatively minor, DeskAlerts refuses to take any risks when it comes to offering clients safe and secure internal communications strategies. In order to maintain fully functional operations across the DeskAlerts user base, engineers developed a series of patches that can be seamlessly integrated into existing systems. This means DeskAlerts clients can continue to enjoy effective inter-employee communication throughout the upgrade process.

“Time is money in the world of business and we understand that our clients can’t afford to waste a second with lengthy software upgrade processes. To ensure all clients can make the switch to the ultra-secure October version of DeskAlerts without putting efficiency at risk, we developed a series of patches than can be covertly integrated into existing systems with zero impact on functionality,” adds Vdovin.    

While the vulnerabilities were only identified at the start of October, the patches have already been incorporated into the latest version of the desktop internal communications strategy software. In just a few weeks, the in-house team of software engineers has completely eliminated the risk of sensitive information being violated due to existing threats.

“While the chances of violation were extremely minimal in the first place, our clients can now rest assured that the DeskAlerts security system is watertight,” says Vdovin.

To take advantage of the latest October version featuring the new security patches, DeskAlerts recommends total system upgrades. All clients using older web browsers and operating systems such as IE9/Windows Vista are encouraged to make the switch to the latest version in order to activate the new security patches.
