Skype Security Slips while Brosix Continues to Please

Share Article

Brosix Instant Messenger is chosen by thousands of new users as a great Skype alternative after the wiretapping claims at the end of July 2012

Although Skype has denied reports from credible sources like CNN, Gizmodo, Ubergizmo and many others that recent changes to its architecture will allow law enforcement to track calls and messages, many users of this program are worried about the privacy of their conversations.

This comes on the heels of a security flaw that potentially allows third parties to view instant messages exchanged by two contacts. While Skype is currently working on an update to fix this security flaw, in the meantime users are concerned about whether their conversation could be shared with others.

Brosix, however, is known for being one of the most secure enterprise instant messaging clients in the world. They are well aware of the importance surrounding security and take all the measures necessary to ensure that every user can communicate in an environment that is 100 percent safe and secure.

A recent internal study based on customer’s feedback and completed by Brosix shows that for the third quarter of 2012, more specifically at the end of July 2012, thousands of users shifted to Brosix. The main reason is that they lost their confidence in Skype and choose Brosix because they needed more secure Skype alternative for business and free instant messaging.

Statistical information collected from July 2012 and beginning of August 2012 shows there is significant and constant increase of new customers using private instant messaging networks for business communication and thousands of newcomers using free version of Brosix Personal for secure private chat.

Stefan Chekanov, CEO of Brosix, believes that security is more important than anything else:

“In today’s day and age, people want to know that their information is secure online. This is particularly true when communicating via the internet. Any security lapse, no matter how big or small, can lead to trouble for those involved.”

Some of the many ways that Brosix ensures a secure environment include:

  •     Brosix client applications are signed with a code signing certificate provided by COMODO which ensures the publisher identity and proves that the application files have not been tampered or changed by a third party
  •     Strong encryption applied to all communication channels

“When we release a new update, such as our latest version – Brosix 3.3.2 – we make sure that security is top priority,” added Chekanov.

“This goes a long way in allowing clients to use the Brosix system, day after day, without having to worry about any security glitches. In short, security is job number one at Brosix.”
Despite the fact that Skype has run into security issues, there are other IM networks, such as Brosix, that offer a secure environment.
