Based in Chicago, Vaporstream is a secure messaging app that allows users to send truly private messages. This ephemeral messaging platform is used by enterprise clients and consumers that require total control of their content. Vaporstream’s patented streaming technology allows users to send and receive messages while protecting data on mobile devices, in transit and on servers. Vaporstream keeps the sender in control; recipients can view and respond to messages, but they cannot share, store, print or forward them. Data is also protected from intrusion by unintended third parties, even when a device is lost or stolen. While messages cannot be stored by any users, organizations can archive them for compliance when required in a single secure repository of their choice by utilizing the compliance module and also have the option of integration with directory services. Vaporstream is used by industries in which highly-sensitive information is communicated, including healthcare, entertainment, high-tech and legal.
