Microsoft Lync persistent chat now available within secure corporate environment



The only enterprise app for Microsoft Lync that can run on iOS devices, MindLink for SECTOR (developed by MindLink Software) is now available within Secure Work Space on iOS devices

MindLink for SECTOR is a collaboration platform that provides access to Presence, Instant Messaging and Persistent Group Chat leveraging Microsoft Lync. Secure, compliant and fully integrated, MindLink enables collaboration on-the-go that improves team efficiency & productivity. (MindLink for SECTOR works with SECTOR-based enterprise workspaces, including BlackBerry Secure Work Space.)

Secure Work Space is a containerization, application-wrapping and secure connectivity option that delivers a higher level of control and security to iOS and Android devices, all managed through the BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 administration console. Software vendors can enable their apps to securely run in the Secure Work Space which provides secure connectivity through to behind-the-firewall systems – with no VPN required.

By bringing MindLink persistent group chat app into the Secure Work Space environment, organizations are now assured that discussions and knowledge shared in this collaborative environment remains confidential and protected. MindLink for SECTOR is securely wrapped and can be made mandatory by an enterprise’s IT team by pushing or publishing the app on a corporate app storefront for simple and fast user access. This reduces organizational risk by ensuring unsafe or faulty apps cannot be downloaded onto devices and allows lost devices to be wiped of all app data.

Key MindLink for SECTOR features include:

  • Advanced team collaboration within a secure corporate environment
  • Greater control when managing persistent chat channels for mobile application management administrators responsible for multi-device management
  • Stronger enterprise security and compliance standards through MindLink’s optional containerization capabilities
  • Existing BlackBerry infrastructure can be used to support iOS devices running MindLink
  • Administration of iOS devices is unified with the administration of BlackBerry devices
