Case Study: Security and Compliance Assurance for Mobile Messaging in Regulated Industries
The following case study explores how NowSecure used advanced tools and expertise for ethical hacking to test Vaporstream.
Beyond Encryption: Controlling the Conversation

Your information is never saved on devices or uploaded to the cloud.
Messages automatically disappear, leaving no digital footprints.
Archive single copy messages to a client-designated repository.
"Simply No Peer To Vaporstream"
Communicate With Confidence with Vaporstream
Third-party security audit and certification provides additional confidence in the Vaporstream app.
Messages are encrypted during transmittal and at rest, each receiving its own unique key.
You are kept in control of your content and the conversation at all times. Unique to Vaporstream, sender controls ensure that message recipients cannot copy, save, print, forward, edit or share messages -preventing data leaks from occurring.
Unique technology obscures a transmitted image to ensure that it is never compromised, protecting the image against attempted screenshots and prying eyes.
Depending on the device in use, screenshots are either prohibited or detected. If detected, an attempted screenshot prompts an alert to all chat members and the offender is removed from the conversation immediately.
Providing the ultimate sender control, senders are able to shred, or vaporize, messages on demand, whether a text has been read or not.
Known as disappearing text, messages will expire automatically after a predetermined interval of time, based on your policy. Messages never remain on sender or recipients' devices, alleviating the need to wipe devices of chats when lost or stolen.
Optionally, Vaporstream Compliance archives a single copy of all conversations to a secure, client-specified repository of record for safe keeping.
The Admin Console enables administrators to grant or modify Vaporstream access controls, to allow or prohibit use, control security and governance policies, set automation templates/ rules and review audit activities/metrics.
A unique ID for each user is created based on a previously assigned corporate email, or phone number, and verified using a verification code at the time of registration.
Security Incident Response
During emergencies, disasters and/or other out of course events, organizations can maintain access to the independent SaaS-based app for incident notification, response, remediation and recovery - keeping bad actors 'out of the know'.
Audit Controls & Integrity
Provides the ability to record and examine activity in systems using or containing ePHI/ ePII. For compliance purposes, the Vaporstream Platform provides a permanent, secure record of all user activity for auditing and monitoring purposes.
Redundancy & Fail-Over
Vaporstream services are hosted at top-tier facilities, providing state-of-the-art infrastructure to meet the highest industry standards for redundancy and fail-over.
