Salt Communications Offers its enterprise-class secure voice and text solution as a virtual appliance
Salt Communications, the leader in secure mobile communications and compliance for the enterprise, is offering the world’s first on-premise, secure communications server as a virtual appliance. The solution provides the highest-grade encryption technology for mobile voice and messaging communications, coupled with best-in-class enterprise management and regulatory compliance features. The appliance is a fully packaged server platform which can be installed in minutes and allows Salt Communications’ partners and enterprise customers to take full, on premise control of their secure communications infrastructure.
The Salt Communications secure communications platform will be available for download in the form of an .ova (Open Virtual Appliance) file in November 2016. The appliance can be deployed into any virtual environment and configured, ready for use, within minutes allowing the enterprise to migrate all voice calls (including high scale conferencing) and instant messaging/group chats to a completely secure environment immediately from anywhere around the globe. With Salt Communications’ new offering enterprises can operate a completely closed, secure global communications system, eliminating any reliance on, and removing sensitive access from, 3rd party service providers, while being able to fully comply with all regulatory requirements regarding call and message metadata.

- Global, secure calls, conference calls, messages and group chats on any smartphone
- Full control over secure communications no third-party telecom providers with the inherent security risks
- Simple to install and configure users immediately
- Complete control of users and call/text metadata
- Secure attachments documents and photos
“We are excited to offer our secure communications solution as a virtual appliance, allowing our customers to take advantage of the many benefits of virtual infrastructure.” said Joe Boyle, co-founder and COO of Salt Communications. “Our new virtual appliance is very simple to operate, using a version of Linux that is extremely strong and robust. Our virtual appliance can be downloaded as a .ova file and imported into a VM cluster.” The IT department then only needs to configure their network details (hostname and IP address), and open pre-set ports in their firewall to enable full secure communications for their users in a matter of minutes.
